Sue Ryan's profile

Sue Ryan, curator of Sweet Delight and Mr Feathers Den has a background as a communications professional (and part time artist) who eventually gave up the city to be a part of the Wairarapa community with partner Paul Broughton. They purchased the historic Anderson Building in Featherston with a view to starting a cheese making plant along with a shop frontage for sales to the public, What emerged first was Mr Feather's Den, which opened in December 2012, a shop packed full of oddities and delights. A year later C'est Cheese opened with a bang and has been responsible for quite a lot of economic growth in the area.

Fast track another couple of years, Sue and Paul decided they would complement C'est Cheese with a Sweet offering - and make much more efficient use of the large space behind Mr Feather's Den. So the Den was literally pushed back into a more den-like space and Sweet - Kitchen and Delights took over the shop front. "It's an interesting model for a business - I like to refer to it as a department store as people gravitate from a sweet treat experience into a whole different realm (the Den)", she says.

Sue still paints and has a couple of commissions on the go, and has also been invited to interior style and decorate the houses of newcomers to the area. "It's an exciting time to be running a business and being part of the community,"she says.
