Wow who can believe that we are almost in August! We should be down in Melbourne at the August trade fairs and preparing for the coming busy season but this year has had other plans for us.
The best news of the week is that our new shipment will be here by mid September and we will have our full range of baskets back in stock! It is always so hard when the full collection becomes reduced and so great when we get the new delivery. I will keep you updated of the shipments progress! Happy dancing!!
In the mean time we still have plenty of baskets available. Check out this month’s basket. As I write today is the last day of plastic free July but lets keep up the good work and use the baskets and other sustainable products to help reduce our plastic use.

The rustic weave oval baskets are lovely. The palm leaf is a wonderful warm golden colour. As you use the basket it just naturally expands to carry all your shopping.
