Kerry and Simon, the owners of Cargo Lane, share a passion for interesting furnishings, home and gift wares. With back grounds in interior design and the building industry they have worked together on a number of projects including the construction and furnishing of private resorts and executive holiday homes in some of Australia’s most idyllic locations.
The concept of opening their own store full of the things they love has been an idea they had discussed on a number of occasions. When a fantastic space became available at The Old Butter Factory in Bellingen they had no excuse and took the plunge and their concept has become a reality.
They both love to travel so it was a natural progression to combine their passions with their skills base and get stuck into something they would both enjoy. Having never been to Morocco yet fascinated with the challenges of importing from that corner of the world, Kerry and Simon decided to give it a go. They set off in 2011 and spent six weeks putting together their first shipment. They have been back three times in all and are now old hands in the making and either manufacture or hand selection of all their imported pieces. As a result you are guaranteed a refreshing unique experience when shopping at Cargo Lane. It provides Kerry and Simon with a real sense of accomplishment when they see that their customers are excited with their one of a kind purchases; many with interesting stories behind them. Kerry and Simon are always on the lookout for standout pieces and they update their stock regularly. If you are in the area please drop in and say hello. We look forward to seeing you.
