Love By Five is a Children’s Lifestyle store located in the Sutherland Shire.
Brooke and Shannon are sisters born and bred in the Sutherland Shire with a passion for everything kids! Between them have five kiddies. So there came about the name ‘Love By Five‘
After having children of their own, they discovered a love for children’s fashion, bedding, toys, books – you name it. They loved to spend hours trawling websites and social media to find the newest ‘thing’ for their kids. It was this love for the industry that led them to where they are today.
They opened Love By Five in Kirrawee, NSW in January of 2015, and they couldn’t have been more excited. Both being mums, they wanted to have a focus on the shop being ‘pram friendly’ so keeping a good amount of room to move around in the shop was important to them. They also loved the high ceilings, it gives such a beautiful feeling of big, open space.
Here, Brooke and Shannon share a little more around how and why they run Love By Five.
