Manson Framers

Manson Framers have sadly closed their doors in Wynnum. The business has been run by Cameron and Sharon, members of the original founder Keith Richardson’s family since 1964.

“We would like to say thank you to all of our customers over the years.” said Cameron. “It’s been a great pleasure and honour to have helped them with their treasured artworks and precious memorabilia. We are all grateful we for their faith in and support of our business since we opened in 1964.”

Cameron will re-evaluate and reassess the framing business after a six month period. There will also be a mailing list on the Manson Framers website.

LOCAL PROFILE - Andria Copp, Owner Le Busté

After breaking an underwire during a camping trip, Andria found the search for a new bra frustrating. “It struck me how difficult it was to find options for a fuller bust, let alone someone who understood my needs,” she explains. I thought, ‘Well, if no one else is selling bras that suit people like me, why can’t I?’” And so, Le Busté Lingerie was born. Andria started her business from home, creating a comfortable and personalized brafitting service. “Women came to me because they couldn’t find products or expert fitting services in other stores,” she recalls.

As word-of-mouth spread and demand for her services increased, Andria took the plunge and opened the first Le Busté Lingerie store in Wynnum. “Having the store in Edith Street has been fabulous!” she says. “It’s allowed me to broaden the range of products. I also enjoy seeing our customers interact with women who have similar needs.” Andria now stocks a full size range from 6-26 in D-K Cups, with a limited range of B-C cups available. Most of the collection is sourced from specialty brands in Europe, including Prima Donna, one of the oldest lingerie brand in the world.

Andria thrives on the sense of community spirit in Wynnum. “I love the quirky mix of characters and retail offerings here. What you find here in Wynnum is unique. Our clients are often surprised by what they find in the area, and end up spending the rest of the day experiencing what Wynnum has to offer!”

Clients now travel from near and far to Le Busté. “We get people from all over Brisbane, Toowoomba, out west and up and down the coast. Wherever they’re from, our clients come seeking one thing: the perfect bra for them.” Andria explains that it’s all about listening to the client’s needs and providing the right solutions.

“We want a perfect fit for our clients, not just an ‘OK’ fit!”

When asked what she enjoys most about

bra-fitting, Andria smiles “Seeing a client’s face light up when they find a bra that fits them just right is amazing. It’s said that 85% of women are wearing the wrong bra size, and in my experience that is absolutely true! Many women come to us hating bras, thinking that they are just an uncomfortable reality that they have to live with. That discomfort had often been caused by a poor-fitting bra. When they discover that they can have a bra that is comfortable and makes them look good, that makes my day.” Andria is now passing on her knowledge and experience to her staff. “My team members all have a fuller bust. This means they can really empathise with our clients and they genuinely love helping people find solutions.”

When asked about her favourite product, Andria laughs. “I have a lot, because there is a bra that is just right for different occasions or outfits. I guess the one that makes me feel empowered, even if nobody else can see it, is the Sachi!”

Manly Harbour Village Chamber of Commerce News

On Friday 1 September Manly Harbour Village Chamber of Commerce hosted their last Business Breakfast for 2023 attended by close to 40 participants. These breakfast events provide valuable business networking opportunities as well as providing the necessary business tools and strategies to enhance your business skills and knowledge to improve your business performance.

Our guest speaker Velia Nicholls, from Courage to Speak provided a thought provoking, highly energised interactive presentation through shared stories,

laughter and learning on “The Customer Journey”. “Today’s customer is diabolical!”, Velia suggested. “They are demanding. They have little trust, no patience and a very low expectation of receiving any quality customer service. Customer service is about an ability to build relationships, make connections and build trust. But is building this connection even possible in today’s world?” Attendees left the session, with a fresh approach and a renewed energy to build those customer connections.

Terri Cooper from, Business Chamber Queensland announced that Round Three of the Business Boost Grant is now available. Eleanor Crosby, Industry Workforce Advisor provided an update on the Queensland Government Program

supporting small and medium enterprises to address workforce challenges, diversify their workforces, and support workforce growth. As part of this initiative, there are grants available to assist in this area.

Our MC Carlee Hay kept the morning flowing and on time. Thank you to all in attendance and who support the Business Breakfast Series. Keep an eye out on mhvcoc.com.au for the 2024 dates to lock into your diary.

The Mall

The Manly Harbour Village Shopping Centre in Cambridge Parade is undergoing works to create an exciting fresh new look. It is now known as The Mall.

The refresh will bring more light & space, improve accessibility and offer better signage for the traders. There are a number of planned works designed to accommodate future expansion and development of the centre, whilst still retaining the local village feel we know and love.

You can also keep updated with all the changes to The Mall by signing up to the Manly Harbour Village newsletter or checking their Instagram or Facebook pages.

Interestingly, The Mall was actually the original name of the Village Shopping Centre built on the corner of Cambridge Pde and Stratton Terrace in the 1960’s by Stan Davis. The original Mall had a butcher, green-grocer, newsagent, general store and a barber, before being home to one of Brisbane’s Cash and Carry Stores.

All very similar to the shops and services that can be found in the shopping centre today.

Commercial Corner with Benn Woods

Setting up your first business is an exciting journey, but navigating the commercial leasing landscape can be daunting. Beyond the basic rent and lease duration, experienced tenants delve into other important considerations.

Exploring and understanding options like additional lease terms, bond requirements, annual increases, and landlord incentives or rent-free periods can be highly advantageous.

Confidently negotiating lease terms can help strike a deal that initially seemed out of reach.

If you’re looking for the perfect commercial premises for your business, or if you’d just like some independent advice, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Local History

Cannon 57972

The Immigrant ship Clifton sailed into Moreton Bay in 1862 carrying twelve 24 pounder muzzle loading cannons as a gift to the colony from Queen Victoria. By 1912 the cannons were considered obsolete and a local citizen settled a contract to transport three of the cannons to the Wynnum foreshore.

One of the cannons was located on the northern side at the mouth of The Wynnum Creek, whilst another was sited north of the Manly Jetty. The

third cannon, No 57972, was sited at the entrance Wynnum Central Jetty.

The cannons were popular with local children who happily clambered over the relics. However by 1972 they were rusty and corroded. Two were removed from the foreshore, restored and found their way to Fort Lytton National Park.

Cannon 57972, after restoration of it’s carriage, became a popular landmark outside the old Wynnum Library until being relocated to its new resting place in the park near the New Library off Florence Street where it still brings much joy to children and adults alike.
