Gone: A firefighter hosing down the ashes following the fire that destroyed the Shaque-A-Taque store at Stanhope on December 16 last year.


Stanhope’s Ken Harrison is feeling optimistic about the future of his business, Shaque-A-Taque, after fire destroyed it last year.

The business operating out of the historic Bonlac IAMA building was the brainchild of the former Melbourne man who moved the area eight years earlier.

It sold unique hand-made crafts and was home to a series of mini villages and saddlery fellow Stanhope resident Belinda Sharples operated.

Fire tore through the 86-year-old Bonlac IAMA building on Birdwood Ave about 12.15am on December 16.

It took 30 firefighters three hours to contain the blaze.

After six months of planning, construction has started on the revamped building complex to be named the Stanhope Mews.

 

Mr Harrison said he expected work to be completed next month.
