not open

This is very late notice but unfortunately we will not be able to open our shop tomorrow. (Friday 26th March)... But on a brighter note how ace is this pencil brooch by the sniffle co. It's my new favourite. When our new webshop finally opens you'll be able to see him there along with some of John's other fabulous designs such as Woody Allen and Radar from MASH. Any day now's true.

while you were waiting

still waiting for our new website to be finished. I had hoped it would be ready by now, so whilst behind the scenes I am busy photographing away I have also re-arranged the shop. The garage sale is done and dusted and the shop now resembles a shop and not a jumble sale which makes me happy. No more "what on earth is that, it looks like it's an acme part from a Road Runner cartoon", followed by a phonecall to Nick, "what on earth is that orange thing?", his response "a detonator"...hmm to have a hoarder/ collector/recycler for a partner sometimes has it's lowpoints...

mixtape now out

how good is the cover...ha ha I actually made it. I was thrilled when Justine asked me to design the cover for Mixtape, especially with the theme "Life is a Circus".... You can buy it here. And in other news we are about to launch our new website... No more bigcartel shop, you'll be able to buy straight from our webby. A little more tweaking with the shopping cart function and then me uploading photos of items, so now everything you see will be available to buy. I'll let you know when it's ready. Mid next week me thinks. Have a good Labour day long weekend local folk.

train set for sale

A wee while ago we came across a big ole model train set in an op shop. Someone's hobby no longer loved. So after a little discussion (ahem arguing) between Nick and I, Nick won the battle and the train set has joined us in the shop. Sadly it takes up too much room to make it a permanent item, so I am currently photographing all the bits and pieces to upload and sell online. So if you or someone you know has a big old shed with plenty of space, free time and is a train boffin, send them our way. One of my fave models is this Kentucky Fried Chicken stand. (Not KFC)...

goes on...

unfortunately the bear dish above was left on the roof of our car and then run over by a sadly he is no longer, but on a brighter note our GARAGE SALE is still on. We have decided to keep bringing in items and running the shop as a bit of a garage sale for the next few weeks. So lots of cheap random old stuff that you normally wouldn't find at our shop. However we will not open this Labour Day weekend... as our usual back-up filler-in-er-a is away.
