Love from 2 duck
Apologies for a late market update! We have been busy and not in the office enough! As we hurtle toward the end of the year there will lots of opportunities to find us in a suburb near you! Yesterday we had a brilliant time at the French market at Killarney Heights primary school.
The Bad News – at this stage we do not have an arrival time for our new shipment. We have been struck by on going production delays and a transport strike this year, which has slowed everything down. We will keep you posted as soon as we know something. Probably later in December at this stage.
In the mean time we still do have stock of lots of great baskets so do pop over to the My Shop page and see what takes your fancy.
Basket of the Month
One of our favourites – the buckle basket with leather trim and long comfy handles. A classic basket with the addition of a buckle for additional security and long (70cms) thick leather handles that swing easily onto the shoulder for easy trips to the beach or the market.

Time for our annual pilgrimage to France. This little house needs some more love and attention. We are back from France mid July but all our online sales are still operational in our absence. We will be collecting more vintage linen and checking out all the latest trends. Follow us on Instagram for our adventures.
Basket of the Month
Our most classic and iconic basket – the double handle market basket. Equipped with short and long leather strap handles this basket is perfect for everything! It is our most popular basket! We love it. Strong, durable, made for carrying loads of shopping this is the one you see everywhere in France. Loaded with baguettes, flowers and veggies and more. A real worker.
