Located on Sussex Street, Life and Co. stocks an eclectic mix of things to love for your home and beach lifestyle, owner Tess Petho has a passion for selling products that are ethical and that support her love for the environment.

Tess is a natural traveller and the type of entrepreneur that takes every opportunity and makes it hers. She has worked and lived all around Australia, but meeting and falling in love with a local lad has brought her to Glenelg,

“I used to have coffee all the time at Zest and I live close by. I saw the store and love Glenelg. The beach lifestyle is a mix of everywhere I have lived. Life and a bit Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Carins and Darwin”
