Taking Mulgrave Street Cottage online
DANIEL Arthur has taken business online and engaged a local tourism body in a bid to boost exposure for local artists.
Meeting at 53 Mulgrave Street with more than a dozen volunteers from Bundaberg Tourism, Daniel successfully pitched Mulgrave Street Cottage as an option for sight-seers in the Wide Bay.
From this week you will be able to find Mulgrave Street Cottage brochures at information and neighbourhood centres within the Bundaberg Regional Council area. You will also be able to check out the new website.
Daniel said he was trying to help talented Bundaberg artists sell their wares to a wider, or possibly global, market. The business opened officially at the beginning of the year.
“All you can do is try your best,” he said.
“We stick to our niche and sell things supermarkets just don’t. And it’s all 100% local.”
Living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Daniel manages the Cottage supported by his mother Glenda, as well as support workers funded through his NDIS plan.
The Cottage sells everything from fresh herbs and home-made garments to delicate art works.
You can find Mulgrave Street Cottage online here, with works able to be delivered anywhere through Spiffy Stores. Alternatively you can drop by the Cottage at 53 Mulgrave St, Bundaberg.
Opening hours are 8am to 4pm, Wednesday to Friday, or 8.30am to 11.30am on Saturday.

It’s good to know I can get what I need, not being told when my therapies are, or where I’m going. In the past, that’s how it’s been. As I see it, the NDIS is the only way to go.Giovanni, NDIS participant
