Holding on to the good things that last

An alumna of the University of Canberra, Jane Crowley celebrates the spirit of sustainability with her Dirty Janes outlets in Canberra and Bowral, NSW – they're both treasure troves for antique hunters and vintage-lovers.

Jane is a huge believer in upcycling and recycling. “Retaining the essence of a place or thing is what is important, holding on to all that is good about it – letting it speak to you rather than trying to turn it into something it isn’t,” she says.

And this year, the spirit of resilience hallmarked by things made to last is even more important to celebrate – Jane is a champion of things made with love and to be loved.
