Hello, my name is Mary. I am passionate, obsessed and find my happy place in ALL things Christmas since birth.
LITERALLY, I was born on Christmas day!
My inspiration started young. I remember watching my mum get creative with her beautiful nativity display and Christmas tree every year. This led me to find my own creative side.
One of my favourite traditions every Christmas would have to be when mum would carry me to put the star topper up at the very end. That was exciting for me because everyone wanted to do it, but she always chose me because I’m her Christmas star.
I always tell my husband I feel like I’m living in the wrong hemisphere! For a holiday, he took me to America, my dream destination! I have always had a love for a white snowy Christmas while listening to Christmas jingles and walking around the Rockefeller Centre. I remember looking around and everyone was just happy, the joy on their faces!
Christmas really is the best time of the year, so why not have that joy ALL YEAR! This is where the idea of ‘Merry & Bright’ was born. I wanted to create a magical Christmas store that everyone can take a piece from and cherish for years to come. I fell in love with the idea and couldn’t think of a better time to create a tradition and legacy around Christmas and all seasonal events based on my own family memories and experiences.
At Merry & Bright, you’ll always find something that caters to your budget and home style. We are a Sydney-based all-year-round Christmas and seasonal décor store that ensures you’ll have the things that spark joy in your life for many years and can be passed on to generations.
I hope my store brings Christmas cheer to you and your family.
Lots of love,
P.S. It will always be socially acceptable to play Christmas songs all year round. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.
