Caz, Bill and Baxter moved from Brisbane to Stanthorpe when Bax was 2 years old as they wanted to raise their son rurally. They have spent the years enjoying the kind, caring and accepting community that Stanthorpe has to offer and has always has a soft spot for the ‘hippy’ shop as she fondly recalls. Caz’s background is in Analytical Chemistry, but she has always studied and worked with the healing arts to which she is now a fully qualified Reiki Practitioner.

Caz believes Happy Valley is a well being centre, not just a shop. It has a heartbeat. A place where you can enhance your soul or just enjoy a chat. When the opportunity arose to purchase it she chose to resuscitate it. She did this using her own flair for giving back to the community, offering a healing space with beautiful gifts and clothing. She has introduced a vast range of crystals, jewellery, a comfortable reading area and a place where all can enjoy a relaxing pot of tea. The items she stocks not only being fair trade from India and Nepal but also using colourful, unique and gorgeous textiles from around the world.
