Getting the best of bali
IT'S a difficult life for Ian Lambert. As if jetting off to Bali three times a year isn't hard enough, the poor man also has to travel to Vietnam.
That's the downside to owning a Bali store, he says with a laugh.
Ian and his wife Sharon moved to Grafton from the Blue Mountains almost two years ago.
The couple have friends in the area and spent many holidays in Grafton.
Ian said the move was an easy decision. “We fell in love with the beauty of the place,” he said.
“It's in the perfect position, Grafton.”
Ian and his wife own Bali Undah in Prince Street, with Ian working there full-time.
“I'm the brains behind the business,” Sharon laughed.
“I'm just the beauty,” Ian retorted.
As well, Ian gets the enviable job of travelling to Bali three or four times a year to source merchandise for the shop. He also travels to Vietnam.
Ian said he imported the stock himself, which kept prices down.
“And everybody loves that,” he said.
