Well the trials and tribulations of importing really aren’t for the faint hearted! After getting super excited about welcoming our new stock in late Sept/early October we were devastated to hear that our shipment is caught up in the current trouble at Port Sydney. So instead of getting it this week we are now waiting until late October. The container is taking a detour to Adelaide and Melbourne before getting to Sydney. It is so frustrating but as there is nothing we can do I must just get on as best as I can. Breathe.
I have now put all the coming styles available on the wholesale page. https://2ducktrading.com.au/wholesale-2020/ I am taking back orders so that when the new baskets do come, I can be ready to get them out asap!! Contact us if you haven’t got the code to access the wholesale section.

We love Spring at 2 duck, it is perfect for baskets and the promise of warm weather, picnics, and all the things that baskets are meant for.
These days the outdoors is extra special. It is lovely to be out and about after being cooped up more than normal due to Covid 19.
It is with great pleasure that I can announce that by early October, we will have our full range of baskets back in stock. We really miss our classic baskets when they sell out. Due to the strangeness of the year we have concentrated our order on the very popular and classic styles. There will be plenty of our wonderful double handled baskets and the classic baskets with and without leather trim. We also welcome back our trim basket with the leather buckle too. Always a popular style.
We are thrilled to have an excellent stock of the fabulous baskets with the cherries too.
At this stage the shipment is due around the 6th October so we should have it through customs and quarantine with in a week. As soon as we are certain of the date we will update the website and let the shopping commence.
So until they arrive, it is business as usual for us and markets on Saturday!
Our single strap basket is beautiful size, at just a little smaller than our classic medium styles. They are great for carrying shopping for just one or two people. Coming with long leather strap handles, it swings easily over the shoulder as you head to the beach, the market or a picnic. This basket has an additional woven base to assist with stability, which makes it able to stand on its own when put down. A perfect everyday basket! Find this basket and others on the website: https://2ducktrading.com.au/product/single-strap-basket/
