IF YOU'RE willing to throw it out then think twice because there is every chance Tracey Harrold will take it off your hands.

Miss Harrold owns We R Junk and Disorderly on Woondooma St which houses a collection of jewellery, shoes and a particular focus on plus-sized clothing.

She opened her store in March last year and said there was definitely a need for the service after struggling to find plus-sized clothes for herself.

"I've been sourcing my clothes from the Sunshine Coast because it has a better variety of labels," she said.

"I do source all my pre-loved stuff from there.

"I do get some donations but I am not a donations-based business."

Miss Harrold said she had noticed a lot of small businesses struggling post the 2013 floods.

She owned and ran Keatings Aquarium and Pets, a family business in Bundaberg but it fell on hard times and had to close early last year.

"Most businesses don't seem to be doing all right," she said.

"I don't think this city has fully recovered from the floods."

However, Miss Harrold has not given up and has some ideas.

"I would like to get into plus-sized formal wear," she said.

"I've noticed ladies looking for clothes for weddings, graduations and funerals."

Miss Harrold is planning another trip to the Sunshine Coast to hopefully find more goodies.
