This About Us starts with “WE at Drift” because Drift isn’t just the “I” that owns this lovely little grass floored, relaxed and comforting beach hut store.
It’s the team we have working here to make everyone that comes in the door feel like a friend, and it’s the Drifters that ease on in to make Drift what it is today. The happy chatter between friends that run into each other or the uplifting compliments or comments that are thrown around by total strangers to each other.
There are funny stories, personal challenges, milestones and just general chatter that carries on all through the day. This brings laughter and sometimes tears. The empathy that strangers show each other here daily blows us away.
This along with our OLD FASHIONED CUSTOMER SERVICE make us very unique in this day and age. Whether you see my children who will and are totally capable of assisting you, my Mum, who is the most adorable and loved person in the whole community, one of our tight knit team or myself, we can guarantee you if you step into Drift, you will remember us.
OUR mission here is to make everyone feel special and totally at home.
No matter if your 5 years old and looking for a special gift for your friend, a dude looking for that something unique for your significant other, a teen looking for that perfect swimsuit, a lady looking for yourself, or a Grandma looking for something that makes you feel great and look like you feel, not how old you are, DRIFT is where you should be.
I, Sharyn, started this business in 2013, to have a sea change from Brissy and show my very young children then that there is more to life than the bump n grind of a 9-5 job and that you can follow a dream and if you work hard, it can become a reality.
It’s very true that no matter how old you are, you will never go a day without learning something.
I must admit there are days that I say, “I’m ok if I don’t I learn something today,” BUT that usually isn’t the case, there’s always more to learn.
I feel if I am in control of every facet of Drift and keep my finger on the pulse, then I will forever keep that fun family feel WE have here.
Drift’s number 1, is Gaga. My Mum. For those that have visited us here, you will be sure to know her. She works EVERY Sunday and if ever I try to change her days for a week, I am shot down with “That is MY day and you aren’t taking MY customers.”
There are people and children alike that visit here just to see Mum. They come in for a chat or a cuddle or a sharing of something that has happened to them, good or bad, sometimes they even come in for her honest feedback when looking for that special something. She is the hand sewing queen and Gaga handknits ALL of Drifts beanies, scarves and most shawls and wraps for Drift. GARKNITS is her little label and she starts knitting in September for the following Winter.
Sometimes you find Shae or Jasper my little cherrubs. They have grown up with Drift as their second home and love being apart of sales, customer nights, planning and redesigning of things here. They love talking to the customers and the customers love them too.
Then of course there is ME, Sharyn. I put my heart and soul into this little place of mine and there isn’t much I wouldn’t do to keep it fresh, fun and a great place to visit.
It’s taken me 4 ½ years to get on the online wagon, but I’m there now and I sincerely hope I can keep the feel and flow of my shop into my website and make it as simple as I can for you to get around and shop at home in your jamies.
Being the small business that we are, it’s all about making things easy for everyone, that’s my customers, team and myself. So, when you’re looking around the website, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email and I’ll get back to you asap with a response.
Lastly, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me your time to visit us at Drift Clothing online, and I hope we will see you again and again.
But, remember, when in town, please drop in and see us.
