The Easter break is upon us and so is the school holidays. We are going to take a few days to do some road tripping into Victoria and hope to pop into some of our Victorian stockists on the way.

Baskets of the Month
Our reed baskets are a fun family of 3 baskets. Small, medium and large basket, all sold individually. The baskets are woven out of naturally occurring reed to make a more rigid style of basket. With handles long enough to go over the shoulder they make a perfect every day tote, office bag or hand bag. https://2ducktrading.com.au/product/reed-baskets/

As I write the rain is pelting down and I am thinking of friends and stockists living and working on the East Coast – wow it is wet. This is from Sydney and I am sure it is much worse elsewhere. Seems like we have had unprecedented rains of late. This is giving new meaning to being wet ducks!! My thoughts are with those with roofs blown off and gardens and homes in turmoil!!
We will be away for part of April visiting Cambodia but our onlines will still be processed as normal. See the dates for all our April markets below. Of course it is Easter and we will definitely be at the Burrawang Easter Fair. Rain or shine for this favourite market.

Basket of the Month
The baskets with leather trim and thick comfy handles are amongst the strongest and most durable in our range. This basket adds rustic charm to the classic style. Woven in the rarer dwarf palm tree leaf it has a rougher and more raw look. Made in the western part of Morocco nearer the coast it reflects the traditions of that area. This and all our baskets available on the buy basket online page – buy baskets
