May days & Pop Up shop

Hi all

How are you going with the lockdown times?

The 1st of May is one of my favourite French traditions Fete des Muguets. Everywhere we go in France we find people selling bunch of “lily of the valley”. Perfect with a basket.  I know I have posted this photo before but it is my favourite and we need favourites at this time. They bring good luck!!

As social distancing restriction are in place there are still no reputable markets operating at the moment. More news coming.

Express Post offer: With Mothers day fast approaching I am upgrading all my online orders to express post. Things have been pretty haywire with the post in these past few weeks so if you need an urgent gift we will do our best!

March madness!!

At all our markets in March we are going to be offering discounts on our baskets. We have a pile of 2nd baskets and discontinued styles and they are taking space in the warehouse so it is time to move them on!!

Pop in a visit us at the markets this month for a great bargain.

 

Sustainables

Whilst baskets are the perfect way to shop environmentally. We do need additional bags for our fruit and veg.  After our recent trip to New Zealand we came across Helen and her business The Rubbish Whisperer. We bought a load of her great and colourful bags and they have been selling like hotcakes. The beauty of these bags is they are all made in NZ and are very strong.

 

 The Rubbish Whisperer Reusable Rubbish pack of 5.

 Each bag can hold over 1.5kg of fruit or vegetables. Packs of 5 $25 at the markets.
