Support Queensland and Shop Local

At Annabel Trends, we’ve decided to put together a series of articles with our local stockists to promote Queensland’s small businesses during this time of need.

It is an incredibly daunting and uncertain time for all businesses and now is the time to support local in any way we can so we can continue buying local for years to come.

We love our stockists and we can assure you even a small purchase will make the world of difference to these Aussie businesses and their staff!
