Opening the new Maroondah Handicrafts Store

By September 10, 2010September 20th, 2010No Comments

Maroondah Handicrafts, is a not-for-profit cooperative that was formed in 1975 to provide an opportunity to bring people together with a common interest in making handicrafts. The group established a shop in Ringwood East and has been trading for over thirty years.

This afternoon I was invited to launch Maroondah Handicrafts new store in Heathmont, located at Shop 3, 95 Bedford Road. The organisation is entirely volunteer operated and donates its profits back to the community, including groups like Scope Ringwood, the St Stephen’s Community Living Centre and the Maroondah Citizens Advice Bureau.

Maroondah Handicrafts has a range of excellent wares and I encourage the community to support the organisation and in turn other groups within our community. Maroondah Handicrafts is located at Shop 3, 95 Bedford Road in Heathmont.
