  1. Could you please contact me on 0439885228 as I have just been to Sussanah Place in the rocks Sydney, for the umpteenth time over a period of 2-3 years to buy one of your brooms. Today there were 4 at the front of the shop and the gentleman working in the shop would not sell me one, he said they are there to guage interest, please let me know how I can purchase one of your magnificent brooms and also how much it would cost.
    Thankyou Steve McCarthy 6 Dent Street, Epping NSW 2121 mccarthys@transfieldservices.com

    • Hi Steve
      You can buy our brooms from The Hardware Store in Alexandria & Balmain. They are both open 7 days a week and have 4 styles of brooms in stock.
      Thanks

    • I live in sale victoria and morwell in the latrobe valley were is the closes outlet for your brooms. Or can l buy one on ĺine

      • Hi Michael
        You can buy the brooms directly from us, however there are a minimum of 12 brooms per box as we post them through StarTrack. The better option for you would be the Cleaning Shop in Kew, Melbourne where you can purchase our brooms in store or on their website: //www.thecleaningshop.com.au/
        Thanks

  2. Don’t know who I was talking to on the phone today about purchasing your brooms, but have put in my small consumer order with Balmain Hardware Store today … and wanted to express some of my thoughts to you for what they are worth. You have a uniquely Australian product line and I would encourage you to market it as such … I would not try to compete with the likes of Bunnings etc. but would look for niche markets in the environmentally friendly echo outlets that are usually sold on-line. Money spent on a top Web Site would be well spent, with good product information, prices, details etc. followed up by tips on how to use your products, maintenance or repair details for each of your product lines etc., or even stories about them to give consumers the confidence to purchase your quality goods and refer on.

    Good luck and looking forward to using your wonderful Millet brooms

  3. Hi!! I work in stables and we use and love your brooms. They are the best and nothing compares. Our previous retailer doesn’t come to Newcastle anymore and we can’t find your brooms anywhere else. Is there a way for us to purchase some from you?
    Thanking you

    • Hi Cherie
      You can purchase them directly from us by contacting Geoff or Rob on (02) 6947 2804. We post them from the factory through StarTrack and there are 12 brooms per box. If you are after less then 12 brooms then Rapid Clean Newcastle usually stock them. Thanks for contacting us, so glad you love them!

  4. Hello

    I saw one of your terrific brooms in use in Cowra and the lady told me it was yours. Would you please tell me whether I can buy just one from you and if not, where I can get one. As I live in the Blue Mountains it would be good if I could get one here otherwise anywhere from Mt Victoria to Parramatta would be fairly convenient.

    Thanks, Rosie.

    • Hi Rosie
      We are only able to sell a minimum of 12 brooms directly from the factory. The closest retailer that stocks our brooms in the area you have mentioned is The Hardware Store in Alexandria & Balmain. They are both open 7 days a week and have 4 styles of brooms in stock.
      Thanks for contacting us

  6. When we did tour tour a few years ago, we purchased a Woolshed Broom and a caravan broom. Great products and we use our caravan broom all the time instead of the Shark vacuum. Really enjoyed the tour and to meet staff that are so passionate about making a quality Aussie product that lasts.

  7. I am very interested in purchasing your product for our organisation in North Queensland – can I have a brocure with your styles and pricing please.
    Thank you
    Alan

    The festival is growing and well we know there would be no other broom makers as competition!
    If interested applications are open on the website or contact me
    Kirsten Junor
    Fingers crossed as I want to buy a broom!

      Kind regards,

      Heather

  27. Hi, Tried to phone you three times today – the phone your end kept going into FAX mode. I am considering selling your 7 tie cane centre Millet brooms initially at markets in the Blue Mountains area. Later I may extend the range of brooms that I sell. What will be the total cost per pack of twelve brooms shipped to me at Wentworth Falls NSW 2782? Please email me a quote.
