Wishing every one a very happy first of May! A day to wish happiness to all. The tradition is to bring a lovely little bouquet to your nearest and dearest. It’s one of our favourite French traditions.

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.
