Love 2 duck.
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.
Remember too Mothers Day is coming and there isn’t anything better to get a busy Mum than a French market basket! So many options to choose from on the Our Shop page. http://2ducktrading.com.au/product-category/market-basket/

We will be in France from mid June for a few weeks and and so look forward to getting back in touch with these charming traditions.
