Owner & Director: Kat McKinnon
Kat’s Support Team: Tanya, Jody & Di
At first glance Kat may appear to be a little mad with her pink hair and quirky tastes, but she’s really a colourful character who wants to share her love of fashion with the people of the Coffs Coast! Having run Charlipop Kids for over 10 years, sourcing quality designer wear for kids at affordable prices is her forte; but Katsby extends the range to now include ladies fashion and accessories.
The range at Katsby will change faster than Alice falling down the rabbit hole! Ladies ranges include: Canadian brand Hatley, Aussie brand Orientique, Hell Bunny and Chic Star from the US, jewellery, shoes, scarves, sample garments and a range of maternity wear. You’ll even find a sprinkling of plus size and evening wear! Kids brands include Canadian Hatley, the colourful Spanish brand Boboli, organic cotton ranges including NOeser and Turtledove, UK’s Lilly & Sid and Australian stylish range by Mini Treasure Kids; in a mix of samples, end of season and excess stock runs. You’ll find kids leather shoes, accessories, baby sets and more! Katsby really is the one-stop-shop for discounted fashion with prices starting at $5.
The name Katsby is derived from Kat’s involvement in Roller Derby with her local league name being ‘The GR8 Katsby’. While she doesn’t compete due to injuries, you may find Kat and her team rolling around the floor on skates from time to time!
The store design is unique and lends to Kat’s love of Steampunk and her favourite childhood novel ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Featuring a large ticking clock, upside down lamp pieces and even chairs hanging on the walls, Kat wanted to share with you that in this crazy world it’s okay to shed a little joy and be a little different! And to add to the interest Kat has added a book exchange lounge where she welcomes musicians, books lovers, mother’s groups and the like to come and relax and enjoy the atmosphere! There’s a play area to keep children busy and even a pool table for the big kids!
Come down and enjoy the adventures and atmosphere at The Katsby World of Fashion, Moonee Beach!
And yes, perhaps the best people are a little mad!
