As I write the rain is pelting down and I am thinking of friends and stockists living and working on the East Coast – wow it is wet. This is from Sydney and I am sure it is much worse elsewhere. Seems like we have had unprecedented rains of late. This is giving new meaning to being wet ducks!! My thoughts are with those with roofs blown off and gardens and homes in turmoil!!
We will be away for part of April visiting Cambodia but our onlines will still be processed as normal. See the dates for all our April markets below. Of course it is Easter and we will definitely be at the Burrawang Easter Fair. Rain or shine for this favourite market.
A classic basket with leather trim and long handles. This basket is an variation on the original classic basket with leather trim as it has an extra woven rim and base for extra strength and stability. A medium size basket with long thick comfy leather handles it is perfect for all the carrying we do!! It is on special until the end of April for the fête des mêre.

Every where in France in May is the mois du Muguet – the festival of the Lily of the Valley. It heralds the beginning of spring and is one of my favourite traditions in France – everyone gives you a bouquet of muguet as gift of good luck. We will be in France from mid June for a few weeks and and so look forward to getting back in touch with these charming traditions.
