Sisters leave no detail unattended
KYLIE and Tracey Clarke are more than sisters - they are best friends.
They even married brothers!
So it makes perfect sense that when they came up with a great idea for a business, they went into the venture together.
“We have been Coffs Harbour locals since 1988 but Tracy moved to Sydney for a few years and recently came back,” Kylie said.
“When I got engaged my hubby and I decided to have a whirlwind wedding so I had three months to organise it. I called my sister in a panic and even though we only had such a short time we had so much and it came together really well, even though she was in Sydney and I was here.
“Then three months after the wedding my sister got engaged. She had 12 months to organise it but we did the same thing, organised it together, and we realised that we worked together really well.”
That was four years ago, but in the meantime the sisters kept the business idea in the back of their minds.
Then, when Tracy moved back to Coffs last year, they seized the opportunity.
They opened shop about six months ago and got their first function, the Pink Girls Night In at Opal Cove, in no time.
“It went really well - there was about 85 people and we had a fashion parade, prizes, auctions, raffles and man slaves,” Kylie said.
“At the moment we are working with the Cancer Council to do Relay For Life ceremonies this year.”
Both mothers, Kylie and Tracy work from home and juggle their work and family commitments with ease.
And there is no looking back.
“So far it is going really well.”
