Wow it’s nearly November!

Incredible, it is nearly November where has this year gone???

We are in the last few days of October so first thing to say is Happy Birthday to us at 2 duck trading co – we are 15 years old!! It was a quite a life changing moment when we took over 2 duck trading co from Chris and Tessa back in 2007 fitting in perfectly with our French inspired ethos and it has lead to amazing adventures to France and Morocco plus a wonderful time building our wee business here in Sydney. We have meet so many people, made life long friends and feel just as passionate about our wonderful market baskets as we did at the beginning.

To celebrate from today until 31st October we are offering free shipping on all baskets orders. Just pop FREE SHIPPING into the coupon section when you make your order.

November will see a return of many beloved and fabulous events sadly missed during the pandemic. Starting off the wonderful French fair at Killarney Heights school. See below for all the markets and events coming up.


Since the arrival of the baskets (thank goodness) we are been furiously getting out wholesale orders to all our lovely patient customers.  For those who haven’t ordered it is not too late to do so. We are packing orders most days and do our best to get them out as quickly as we can. Better in your shops than our warehouse. If you are not on our list just drop us a line via our contact page

Baskets of the Month

What to choose for our basket of the month – it is just so brilliant to have them all back in stock.  In the end I just can’t go past our wonderful classic double handle baskets.  This is such a staple of our markets. The short and long handles makes this basket so versatile for every day use. We have missed them while we waited for the new order to arrive and they are selling like hotcakes! Pop over to the shop page for these great baskets plus many more
