Willmott Trading and More Lollies Please at Plumes Emporium are run by Peter and Marlene Willmott.
For Peter and Marlene, this is a continuation of 40 years in the confectionery and food industry, commencing with the purchase of a part-time school tuck-shop, run in 1979.
After 15 years, it was time to move on and with various jobs and businesses involving food and confectionery in the years in between, they have arrived at Plumes Emporium, where they have taken on the general day-to-day running of Bendigo’s unique retail space, along with a number of other stallholders who provide support and assistance.
Their aim is to source ‘value for money’ products, products that may be past their ‘best before’ date but are still good to eat, confectionery that may not be readily available today in the big supermarket chains, or gourmet food products not easily found in the Bendigo area such as Billson’s cordials, Jamie’s dressings and spice rubs and Uncle Mungo’s hot sauces .
They are regularly re-stocking their store in Plumes Emporium with new and value for money products.
