Turned my Hobby in to a side Business- Vanessa Modernel

Updated: Jun 5, 2019

I have been blessed to know Vanessa since we were about 16, now over a decade of friendship (but basically family) later who would have thought it would have led us here- our very own Blog post together. For as long as I have known Ness she has always been so driven and hard working for everything she puts her effort in to and I have always admired her for that. I have watched her travel, dance the night away, soldier through some hangovers, moving out of Sydney, finish uni, buy her first house with her hubby, marry her best friend and now watching her thrive in her Wedding/Event Hire Business Eclectic Salvage, is so inspiring. It really is life is what you make of it with her. If you have been thinking of chasing a dream or even just taking a leap of faith in to the unknown- I hope this Blog with Vanessa gives you the push to turn that passion of yours in to a Business!



What is your shot of choice?

That one is easy…Hands down a fireball! The only problem is, they taste a little too good!

What inspired you to start your side business?

I didn’t set out to start a business. I have always been passionate about entertaining, styling and enjoying a few drinks with the people I love. I am just fortunate that my passion has led me to where I am today.

What inspired you to start your side business?

Like most females, I had dreamed of my wedding day for a long time. When I began planning my own, I discovered just how difficult it was to source elegant and beautiful items at a reasonable price, especially tables. I wanted timber tables that were sleek and didn’t look like the typical “rustic” vibe.
