Vender of the Week: Yellow Bungalow


Who: Yellow Bungalow

Where: Bondi, Sydney

Yellow Bungalow is the home of all things Bondi. Staying faithful to the sunny suburb with their Bondi Style collection, Yellow Bungalow oozes with friendliness and a unique sense of design. To them, service doesn’t stop at just a transaction: it goes far beyond. That’s why they offer their design advice and product hunting skills to customers too. We here at Vend think that’s something to admire!

How it all started…

We started Yellow Bungalow after accepting a redundancy from the magazine publishing industry. Print media is on the decline and we saw the chance to run our own furniture, art and design store both in the physical and online sense. We chose Vend as it is flexible to grow with our business. We didn’t want to be tied to an old school cash register that we had to move if we moved premises. Vend also integrates seamlessly with our online store and our accounting service Xero. It was this simple integration that confirmed Vend is the right choice for yellow bungalow.

What words of wisdom do you have for new retailers?

It’s really important to have your brand strategy strong from the start. Know who you are and what your brand means to both you and your customers.

Do you have a tip for new Vend users?

You don’t need to know everything from the start! Get the basics set up and figure out the rest as you go. Vend has so many useful functions and reports that, once you get up and running, will make much more sense.
