Welcome to my blog

Tara. Albury. Australia. 23Years Old. Qualified Vet Nurse. Animal Lover. Business owner. Lolly Shop.Motivated. That almost sums me up but let me tell you a little bit more.. 18 months ago I took the plunge and opened my own business. I combined a Lolly Shop and Candle Shop and called it Joy's De'Lights. In 2011 I started Joy's Candle De'Lights, a home business making my own Candles and Soy Wax Melts. I was working full time as a Vet Nurse while running my little business. That's all it was; little but little did I know I would have my own successful shop front 2 years later.

All through school my peers would be asked "What do you want to do when you finish school?" Not many had an answer but I was straight up answering as my heart was set. 3 years in to working as a Vet Nurse and my heart was not in the work anymore, life changes happened and my dream as a Vet Nurse was coming to the end. After 12 months of research and building up the courage I finally decided to open a shop. It had become a massive dream to open my own business. At the time of finding a premises I came across a vacant shop in a little arcade off the Main Street. This was the home to Joy's De'Lights for 12 months. My lease was coming to the end of its term and I had a massive decision to make,  I took another plunge and moved to the Main Street of Albury. I have been in the new shop now for 7 weeks and I am so happy with where the business is heading.

Joy was my Nan who i absolutely adored, she passed away several years ago now from Cancer. I know she would be looking down so proud of me and hopefully honoured to have a shop named after her.   [caption id="attachment_7" align="alignright" width="300"]City Walk Shop City Walk Shop[/caption] [caption id="attachment_8" align="alignnone" width="300"]New shop in Dean street New shop in Dean street[/caption] You can view our online shop at
