Fashion Industry Profile: Jane Cay – Founder of Birdsnest

Cooma (population 8000) is home to Birdsnest, an independent boutique owned by Jane Cay, a youthful looking blonde who followed her heart to the country and fell in love with a farmer. While Birdsnest began as a boutique, its online presence is the real – and remarkable – business driver.
