I love the word ‘serendipity’. It’s such a lovely sounding word, and I like what it means “a coincidental happening – a pleasant surprise.”
It was serendipitous that I met Anne Ngo – the founder and owner of Inchmeal Café, who has joined us at Our Little Caravan: The Collective Store, in Notting Hill, Melbourne.
Earlier in the year, Anne’s niece had a birthday party with a small group of friends in Mabel, our vintage caravan, (the star attraction at Our Little Caravan). The mother at this party was also named Mabel! Now THAT doesn’t happen very often! When talking at the party, Mabel told me of her sister-in-law (Anne) who dreamed of opening her own café. Given that I’m already living life at beyond my capacity – I had dreams of someone else running the much needed café at the front of Our Little Caravan too!
And so began a conversation that would lead to the opening of Inchmeal Café at Our Little Caravan, in September, 2016.
Inchmeal means: little-by-little. How appropriate that Anne has named her café this.
Little-by-little, My Little Caravan has become Our Little Caravan and Our Little Caravan is continuing to find ways to collaborate with others in the community and provide an experience that nurtures soul (creativity) mind (conversation and connection) and now body (nourishing and delicious food). Welcome Anne J
