We are slowly getting the year underway here at 2 duck, very difficult not to be glued to the news outlets watching the awful devastation unfold on our beloved south coast. The scene of so many wonderful holidays. Bon courage to everyone facing so much devastation.
Our online sales are all open but we are not back to the markets just yet.
September marks the beginning of the Spring fairs and the advent of good weather! We love it at 2 duck!! We are also waiting for our new shipment and will have lots of great new baskets coming plus all of our favourite classics. More info to come. Also as many of you know I love vintage French linen and always bring some back from France. We are having one of the first pop up shops for 2016 in September too. So busy busy busy.
Baskets of the Month
What better way to kick of this post with a sale!! As we wait for the new shipment to arrive we need to make space in the warehouse. So from now until end of September all classic double handle baskets and classic leather trim baskets are reduced.

Every where in France in May is the mois du Muguet – the festival of the Lily of the Valley. It heralds the beginning of spring and is one of my favourite traditions in France – everyone gives you a bouquet of muguet as gift of good luck. 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.
