Did you know EEFM has two locations?

 In early 2017 we decided we had finally out grown our small shop space on Grenfell St and needed another area to continue to grow. We found a place suitable for us almost instantly and moved to our very big warehouse close to the city.   We decided to do this for multiple reasons. The first reason was we couldn’t continue working on top of each other, although we did get into a good groove with each other (automatically passing scissors or tools, or what that person needed to one another subconsciously and without a word)   Secondly we wanted the Grenfell St store to be a little haven where people can come in and enjoy the space, enjoy the...

How to write a Sympathy card message

    Writing a sympathy card is not an easy task. Sometimes it is hard to find the right words or wonder what would be comforting for the recipient to hear and often we worry that we will say the wrong thing.   Even though it's not easy it is important to find some comforting words to say. Obviously our words can’t take away the pain from the grieving person but it will make them feel loved and supported.
