HELLO AND WELCOME
This shop has come about as a leap of faith after some big life changing moments and a little quote:
"I'd rather have a life of 'oh wells' than a life of 'what ifs'"
My name is Alison and my friends call me Ali which is how ILA was thought up. I am a single mother of 3 beautiful children.
I have put a great deal of time and care into getting this shop up and running and will put that same effort into giving my customers the service and attention they deserve. I will personally handle every single sale and you can be assured that any enquiries you may have will be dealt with personally.
When the decision was made to open this shop, there were a few ideals that I wanted to stick to.

Shop with a Conscience
This business will be run with a conscience in the following ways:
Proudly Australian, I decided that ILA would be used to support Australian Made and Australian Designed items whenever it is possible and you will find many of these items in stock.
ILA contributes 5% from every sale to charities that are on the "Charities We Support" page.
Every charity that has been chosen is of deep significance to me. They have supported my family as we faced huge challenges. In one instance their support came too late but hopefully with more donations, this will not be the case for other families.
I am now in a position to give back and intend to do so to the best of my ability.
ILA endeavours to support Australian companies who believe in Fair Trade practices and we stock some great Fair Trade items, some of which have been designed by Australians.
Talented Aussie Artisan Startups are supported by ILA. See my page called Aussies We Support to learn more about them and how you can join them.
I hope you enjoy your shopping experience a little more knowing that you are helping me to help support our community.
