One grew up on the Sunshine Coast one grew up in Sydney, so how did Desley and Suzie end up with a shoe shop together??


It all started when Desley opened Sweet Charlotte Studio in the main street of Caloundra and Suzie who owns The Source Bulk Foods Caloundra welcomed her with chocolates (Des loves sweets) to say congratulations on opening in Caloundra…they hit it off straight away.

Both had a common ground, for business, a curiosity for growth in business, and their very strong belief in customer service….. And they both love a chat!!

Fast forward 2 years after many drinks and dinners. Desley opened Sweet Charlotte Cotton Tree and next door was a shoe shop, known as The Leather Shop. It was for sale (Des had a light bulb moment) This was the perfect opportunity for Desley to bring her passion of clothes and shoes together.

 Des loves to share and make people feel fabulous! With this in mind Desley knew Suzie loved shoes maybe they could be partners in the shoes business. Suzie was beyond excited to partner with Desley!

Desley and Suzie bring different strengths to the business. Desley’s quintessential passion flare for fashion and knowing what women want. Combined with Suzie’s love of shoes, helping and educating women about shoes, coupled with her enthusiasm for a fun easy ambience to shop in. These two have a zest for life and love helping women feel happy and confident!
