Our adorable open weave baskets are just so fun and make the best little hamper baskets.  Available in three sizes – you can see them over on our shop page.  Hand woven from the fibre from large palm trees near the desert in Marrakech,  these baskets are in the beautiful blond coloured palm leaf.  They have a short real leather handle, stand well for use around the house or great as a basket filled with seasonal gifts.

August and still in lockdown!

Hi all

I can’t really believe that I am writing that we are still in lockdown – but there it is! Then I chatted with my son in the UK and was reminded that they had over 4 months in confinement,  earlier this year, which certainly puts this into Sydney experience into perspective.  Here he is in the dead of winter with his new puppy and of course a basket. There is always a silver lining.

So we just have to keep plodding along. On the bright side the new shipment of baskets is getting so much closer.  They have left Singapore and are steaming their way to Sydney.  It will be such a pleasure to have all the baskets back in stock.

Baskets of the Month

We need a bit of fun and the promise of Spring coming soon! So here is our wonderful cherry basket!  Using the classic double handle strap basket the cherry basket has woollen cherries hand appliquéd onto the basket. Adorable. For this basket and more pop over to our shop page.     https://2ducktrading.com.au/product/cherry-basket/

 

 Whilst the decision to postpone our annual trade fair Life Instyle Melbourne, until next year, has now been taken (sad I was looking forward to our annual trip to Melbourne).  We will still be working on our wholesale offering.  Once the shipment is closer look out for updates. Our wholesale newsletter will start again shortly.  To join our wholesale newsletter sign up with our contact form. https://2ducktrading.com.au/contact-2duck/

Of course our wholesales are still available at this time.  If you don’t already have the code,  just send us a request so you can access the wholesale section.

Markets

Reminder: Whilst we are not at the markets during the stay at home orders if you need anything – table linens, tea towels, pates,  or any of our great range not online just contact us via the contact page https://2ducktrading.com.au/contact-2duck/

All of our great markets are still operating for essential food services. It is wonderful that Le Marché-Willoughby will start back up this Sunday 8 August for a shop and go service. Cambridge Markets EQ and Carriageworks Farmers markets have continued to operate right throughout the lockdown.

 

Sending love, stay safe.
