Photo Shoot

So much fun this Saturday as we were joined in store by the photographer from Shepherdess magazine.  We enlisted the help of four lovely local ladies for a fashion feature photo shoot and were put through our paces to produce some very creative shots and showcase some of the gorgeous clothes, jewellery, furniture, art and homewares that we are lucky enough to have in store.  Big thanks to our lovely local ladies and our lovely local farming family who supplied the ultimate photo friend...

A Little Something New....

Just a quick update about our new product line.  As you all should know by now, we try really hard to support local, Kiwi businesses and product made here in good old NZ.  But as we strive every day to find great product for our valued clientele, we sometimes discover something too cool to pass up.  We have stepped a little out of our normal comfort zone, and gone to the rooftop of the world for our latest treasures.  Muskane means "smile" in Nepalese and we did smile when we...

Winter Days

Wow.  July is right round the corner and it seems that we haven't stopped moving since Christmas.  This weekend just gone was the Southland Home Show, which was a first for us.  We talked to LOTS of people and gave out a huge pile of business cards, so we look forward to hearing from those people with upcoming interior projects.   As you all know we work in a big shed, a drafty shed,  which is great for a summer cross breeze, but not so flash with a wind chill of -8...
