Somethings Country is a family owned and operated small business operating from Kingaroy in the South Burnett region of Queensland, Australia. The owner Janelle Frohloff runs this with the help of her family of husband Wayne and her 4 children. We also have a couple of part time ladies, that are more than willing to help with any enquiry. After our move in the last few years, we have now expanded to include a quilting shop, complete with fabrics, and some sewing parafanalia.
We are about 2.5 hours drive from Brisbane CBD, Sunshine Coast, Wide Bay Coast (Bundaberg) and about 2 hours from Toowoomba. We are centrally located and as a town have lots to offer the discerning tourist or day trippr. With an abundance of wineries nearby, we have an award winning wine and cheese trail closeby. We are a short trip to the Bunya Mountains a very popular weekend getaway, with nature trails, and its unique rainforest appeal. You also may know Kingaroy as the peanut capital of Australia and Sir Joh and Lady Flo country.
The shop has been operating now for 10 years, but has been a dream of Janelle’s since she was 10 and walked into a craft shop and told her mum, that this is what she was going to do one day. 30 plus years later she never realized that is was such hard work, but loves it. Janelle makes a lot of craft herself, but with 4 children, 1 husband and a full time job, finds it very difficult to find the time. Instead she scoures the local area for artisans as well as buys things from all over the country and overseas to bring a huge collection of country and shabby chic wares to you, the customer. I hope you agree that looking over the website is worth the time out. Now not everything that is in the shop is on the website, and sometimes it takes time to upload and change the new things, but she does best she can.
We still do the occasional market or festival throughout the year, as we find this a great form of advertising, as people see our wares in person, instead of just the net.
