Violet & Moss, our story starts in July 2016. New to this name but certainly not new to the industry we have been in the home and giftware business for many years.


After expanding to three franchise branded stores over six years, it was now time to stand independently and look toward future growth opportunities.


Together Des Hill and Vicki Hinde have enjoyed over 30 years of retail experience prior to opening their first franchise store partnership.  Both maintain a hands-on approach to managing their stores.  With a focus on building customer loyalty, Des and Vicki pride themselves on making sure the team at Violet and Moss provide an exceptional service experience.


Des oversees general operations and marketing whilst Vicki’s focus continues to be on presenting beautiful homewares in-store.


Now having had many years in the retail industry, and with the continued support of their local customers, Vicki and Des begin a new journey under a fresher name – Violet and Moss.   Free to grow and spread their wings, the business has grown to a small chain of home and lifestyle stores across the Queensland state and northern NSW.


“We are still united by the single minded proposition of delivering unique, ambient and affordable decor solutions that customers envision. Our collection of homeware and decor is presented with the intention of capturing our customers imagination.”  Des Hill (founder, Moss & Violet)
