I connected with Ami Price, CEO of West Australiana, via the wonderful world of Instagram, and after doing a bit of research into their business was so impressed. West Australiana is WA's only online marketplace and I just love the ethos of the business - supporting local. Ami and her business partner, Chief Operating Officer Mina Bosnjakovic, really live & breathe their philosophy - the girls are so lovely and genuinely want to see other WA businesses do well.
