ABOUT BUY MY THINGS
What is Buy My Things?
We're a consumer-driven retailer... wait WHAT?! In other words, we source and stock the products our customers want. Our Facebook Group has almost 70,000 members who suggest new products all the time.
How did Buy My Things start?
The business was an idea that sparked between Diane Whale, mum to an eight year old boy and seven year old girl, and Denise Hertroijs, mum to seven year old and three year old girls and a six year old boy. A few years ago, Diane wanted to buy a robot vacuum cleaner to help ease the cleaning load of two young kids and a full time job. She thought if she could get together a few people who also wanted one, she could place a bulk order. To keep all the details in one place, she started a Facebook group (called Buy My Things) and invited everyone she knew to join. Several people said yes to the robot vacuum cleaner idea, so she went about organising it!
The following week, over a bottle of wine, Diane and Denise joked about how great it would be to run the group as a business. They saw the potential for a group that would coordinate bulk orders for all the things people needed and wanted in life. So, the next day, they registered the business name and asked people in the group what they were keen to order!
In April 2018 Buy My Things joined forces with another local family business called Tallahashie Pty Ltd who are a 100% Australian owned family business and have been operating since 2003 with continued growth and share the same passion and enthusiasm for providing fabulous products at great prices that Denise and Diane do. They kept Diane and Denise on staff too so the ladies still play an important role in the future of Buy My Things!
