Happy New Year from Buddha Shop Albury and Yackandandah

After the Grand Opening of our “New Store”  www.BuddhaShop.com.au  at Albury we now have a total of three stores.

Our original Buddhist Supplies Shop at A Bears Old Wares / Buddha Shop located at 12 High St, Yackandandah. Victoria. Australia

Our On Line Store at www.BuddhaShop.com.au  

And our newest addition http://www.BuddhaShop.com.au  at 478 B Dean Street, Albury. New South Wales Australia

Our Yackandandah store has been running from 2003 as has our on line store and our Newest venture in Albury was opened on the 20th October, 2011.  Click here to see some photos of Monks and Nuns that have come to Bless our Shop.  or  click for directions to Yackandandah from Melbourne

The new shop has been a  great success, with the population of Albury and surrounding areas showing fantastic support and a liking for our specialised items that we supply.

Click here to see some photos of our Albury Shop – then if you can make it come on down and take a look yourself – we are located right on the Main Shopping Strip of Albury which is Dean Street, nestled among the bustling cafes and specialist boutique shops just up the road from the Albury Cinema Centre and right near Major Department stores of this buzzing inland community.
Click here for directions to our Dean Street Albury Shop from Melbourne 

We decided to open the new Albury store after so many requests as many people cannot make the trip to Yackandandah  on a regular basis.
Many people only get to Yackandandah once or twice a year, now they can just drop in when shopping in Albury it’s made shopping with us much easier and less time consuming .

As for our on line  website shopping well during the last six months sales have jumped around 100% – we still pack and post daily worldwide but most of our customer base is in Australia.  Visit our website to see our range of goods just click here – you’ll be amazed at what we have available.

We would like to extend our New Year Wishes for a Happy Safe and Prosperous 2012 to all of our Customers, their families and loved ones  as well as the whole world and beyond.

While your visiting Albury you can also visit Wat Albury (Thai Buddhist Temple in Albury)  Click here for more details

Below are just a couple of photos of  both of our shops.  Click on any photo to see more.

Gaz (one of the owners) said recently “We thought we would open another store in Albury as some people in the northern areas of Victoria can’t get to Yackandandah, it takes another two hours out of their day to visit here, this way they don’t need to travel too far from home”

If your’e ever travelling in southern New South Wales or Northern Victoria then either of these stores is well worth a visit, many things you will see here you will not see anywhere else.  From large Buddha, Ganesh and many other Hindu statues to Tibetan furniture and antiques, artifacts, which are hard to find in this day and age.

From Yackandandah to Bali and back

My last trip to Bali was around 25 years ago, and I wasn’t all that keen on it then.

Times have changed and Bali has changed.  All the drug smuggler controversy, terrorist bombings, etc have taken their toll over the years.

The Balinese are a beautiful people and that’s one thing that hasn’t changed unless of course they have become more beautiful.
Well all the people I met while there were exceptional people.

I was there shopping for stock for our shop in Yackandandah Victoria Australia. Check it out if you like just click here

Anyway, up and down the mountains around towns, looking, searching, for that ultimate in Buddhist and Hindu items that I – we just can’t do without.  So I got us a whole heap of things from Clothing, jewellery, small, large, statues, water features, wall hangings, wind mobiles, incense, incense burners, so many things, well enought to fill a 40 foot container that’s going to arrive mid to late September.

Visit our website now.. and then come back later when our new stock is in.. you will be absoloutely amazed.

Below are a couple of pics of things to come… Thanks. Andy
