Red Chair Boutique celebrated a major milestone on Thursday - it's 10th birthday.
Selling trendy and stylish clothing, the store on William Street was opened by Robyn Robertson back in 2010, being originally based next to Jack Duggan's on George Street.
After spending four years at its first location, the store moved to its current premises.
Ms Robertson was eager for something different after spending five years as an image consultant.

"I was an image consultant before opening Red Chair Boutique," she said.
"I ran that business from home for about five years, but there was a lot of travel. I had always wanted to do a boutique, so I eventually thought it was time.
"There was a demand for boutique and there still is in Bathurst."
She said the past three years has been difficult, like it has been for many small businesses.
"The past three years has been challenging with the drought and fires, then we got smashed by COVID. It's been hard but all small businesses have these challenges."
Ms Robertson expressed her gratitude to everyone that has supported the shop since opening 10 years ago.
"I want to thank my customers and my staff: Jo Fisher, Lexi Lavelle and Kalha Fisher," she said.
"A special thanks to my partner Chris Bennett. He's a bespoke carpenter and he's done some of the building and moving at the shop."
Red Chair Boutique celebrated its 10th birthday with a cake, champagne and a half-price sale on Thursday only.
Open hours are 10am-5pm on weekdays and 10am-1pm on Saturday.
