Affordable Trophies started from very humble beginnings, purchasing an existing business called Timber Trophies in 1994. The business was housed in a small demountable which we hoisted onto the back of a truck and placed in the front yard of 175 Blackwood Street Mitchelton.
With my husband Kevin’s football contacts and me saying “I will help you if you want”; the garage became my second home for the next 24 years. I had no idea how to run a business let alone charge for items I produced, I had actually never even used a computer.
The first medal I engraved was no charge due to my lack of expertise and the first engraving plate I produced for 1 TOPO SVY SQN at Enoggera was for the princely sum of $1.00, the gentleman gave me $2.00.
When the time came to move from “the shed” we were fortunate enough to purchase a property at 12 Blackwood Street, my walk to work is just inspiring each day.
As my business expanded I had a friend come to help me out. Between the 3 of us the business went from strength to strength. Times and circumstances change, a few staff members later and Affordable trophies opens the doors daily with the amazing help of Leigh MacCarthy, Tamas Smith and of course Kevin who gets us out of trouble when we have more orders than we can cope with or his expertise with the drill is required.
Thank you to all my very loyal customers over the years, without your support and understanding I would not be opening my doors daily.
