Hipsley Lane is due to open on Tuesday 18th September on Lonsdale Street in Braddon amongst a collection of new shops.

Behind the doors of Hipsley Lane is Karen Bustamante, Manager of Commercial Enterprises with Lifeline Canberra and previous owner of vintage shop Cowboys & Angels for 13 years.


“We hope to be unique in our offering to customers, but also unique in the fact that all proceeds to directly to our 13 11 14 telephone crisis support service.”


One hundred per cent of the funds raised by Hipsley Lane will go directly to Lifeline Canberra, to ensure their volunteers continue to receive the best training, resources and ongoing support.
