The funky Fair Trade shop Fairly Cambodian opened in Healesville, just as I was returning to the same town, after 8 months living in Cambodia. Still a little deranged from a bout of Dengue Fever and a grim hospital stay, I shuffled along the Main Street peering into real estate agents’ windows trying to find somewhere to rent. And then I saw the shop and was pretty stunned. I went straight in and started gushing about the beautiful Khmer people to the slightly worried looking lady behind the counter.
That same slightly worried looking lady was the owner, Kerrie Meehan, who three years on, is both a friend and client.
