Welcome - A Name to Know in Bali!

Many people might turn their nose up at the idea of a personal shopper – what kind of a vocation is that? But the fact is, being one requires a multifaceted personality. A personal shopper is many things in one: an image stylist, a bargain hunter, a gourmet foodie, a shopping buddy, a guide to the rare and unusual, but most importantly, your eye to the unknown.

People’s views on shopping differ enormously. On one hand you have those who live to shop, on the other there are those who cannot stand walking into a store. Add to this the factor of being in a foreign land and the time constraints of a business trip, and shopping can be a pressure-cooker for some business travellers.

“Clients often have no time and do not know the area well,” “They want to be accompanied by someone who can give good advice and save them time.”

Need a snazzy resort outfit for a special dinner, let's buy some fabric and one made from a copy of an outfit that you bought last year from Italy....Discover a genuine antique furniture tucked away in the backstreets off the beaten track,
These are just some of the things a personal shopper can provide at the bat of a stylishly lined eyelid.

It has been said that personal shoppers are for those who have a lot of money but not a lot of time. Admittedly, their services do not come cheap, but you can’t really put a price tag on finding the perfect nd not wasting an entire afternoon looking for it, can you?

An ‘Insiders’ Guide to the Best in Bali for PERSONAL SHOPPING AND SOURCING SERVICES

I write a regular article called Retail Therapy for the popular newspaper Bali Advertiser covering all product categories and retail stores. i.e. men's, women's & kids clothing, designer and silver jewelry, hair & beauty salons, anti-aging clinics, dental, home interiors, rustic & contemporary furniture, artworks & quality handcrafted product created by Bali artisans.

From an extensive career in retail it seemed perfectly natural to set up a personal shopping service offering 'insider' knowledge on 'where to find' for the discerning shopper, along with styling services if you wish....

I have made it easier for you to target your choice of shopping trip, check out my website, Shopping in Bali, choose your trip and send me a note via the Contact Me page.

There is no doubt that visitors to Bali can be overwhelmed by the choice of stores on offer, there are literally hundreds!
Retail shopping in the south has grown far & wide, and for the many new visitors to the isle it can be a daunting exercise!
this is where the shopping service comes into it's own, assisting you to find product you want, all in one day!

Visitors often have limited time, perhaps just one day, if this is the case leave partner & children at poolside so you can shop at a more leisurely pace!

I can assure you a day out on the shopping trail with me will be like going shopping with your best friend, it will be worthwhile & loads of fun too.

Start writing your shopping 'wish list' now!

However, remember that Bali isn't as inexpensive as it once was, prices have gone up and you must expect this, nothing stays the same anywhere these days...... and why should Bali remain as cheap as it once was....
