Hold on a second… Who are we exactly?
Good question, our names are Michelle and Andrea and we are sisters, mothers, foodies and self-proclaimed wine connoisseurs living locally in Hampton and Sandringham.
In May 2016 over a crisp glass of Pinot Gris from the scenic hills of Tuscany (Hampton Wine Co), we decided to create a go-to guide for Bayside’s trendsetters, adventure seekers and locals.
With wild dreams of sleek magazine design and feverish page turning content, we quickly saw to one of screaming children and put them and the idea to rest.
Despite all of the life’s interruptions, we persevered and the Bayside Mailer was born.
What started out as a way to keep us sane, as we navigated the incredibly confusing, expensive and strange world of parenthood, is now a vehicle for community engagement.
Sharing our loves and hidden gems, the Bayside Mailer is a collection of experiences and recommendations from across the bay; covering everything from Port Melbourne to Portsea.
Since the Bayside Mailer’s inception last June, we have given away over 150 prizes with a value of over $11,000 and we won’t be stopping there. Showcasing local retailers, venues and people, we are bringing back the easy, breezy, beach vibes with giveaways and guides to the neighbourhood.
This is of course all made possible by our contributors and partners, of which we can never have too many, so if you like what you see, feel free to keep in touch with us between issues and enter a competition or two via Instagram and Facebook – @thebaysidemailer or contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading!
