Chris and Lexie work very hard developing a family friendly and community minded, welcoming Jewellery Boutique on Angelo Street, South Perth. With a strong focus on supporting, local community, and business, choosing the Decoy Paddle Steamer was an easy choice. Our clients are very special to us, we love to see them in the store for a chat, to see how they are doing, and to help with all their jewellery and design requirements. Catching up on a Sunday afternoon on the Swan River was a perfect way to further establish lifelong friendships and business relationships.
Mingling, and talking to our clients, making sure everyone was having a great time, that’s what is important to us.
The Decoy River cruise was a highlight in Chris and Lexie Soklichs business and event calender. We are currently securing the next event, for November 2020! Look out for your chance to come aboard!
