The Happenstore – Good night BUT not Goodbye

The gorgeous Cath Derksema opened a store at 55 Parramatta Road, Annandale 6 years ago and created a home for like minds. She closed the physical store on Saturday but the home will continue. Follow Cath and Happenstore on her instagram here for what comes next.

The party was warm, full of flowers, wonderful food and the family of makers that have become The Happenstore family. It was a celebration of what one very talented warm woman created on The Parramatta Road.
