It's a bit of a long read this week, there are a LOT of very cool things to showcase!
These awesome chilly bins sold out in record time last year, so we've made sure to get plenty of stock this year! Whether you're on the boat, at the beach or in the backyard these chilly bins keep everything cool while looking good.
These Foldable Silicone Cups are pretty cool - in fact the nicest outdoor vessels we've seen. They're squashable but not when filled with liquid. They come in a mixed set of two, and there are seven pairings to choose from. Love, love, love them!
Nothing beats gently swaying in the breeze under the shade of a leafy tree - just add a good book and a comfy cushion. These hammock chairs make great gifts for tricky teenagers and easily roll up when not in use.
No trip to the beach will be complete this year without one of our popular Dock & Bay beach towels! We have an ENORMOUS delivery due any day, with top-ups on all designs. These make great gifts for guys, and are easy to post too.
We're big fans of these fab beach umbrellas, and having had ours for a few years, I can completely endorse them! One of the things I love most about them, is the screw tip at the base. This means that you can drill the umbrella down into the sand, giving it some serious stability. Coupled with the generous venting up above, you've got one solid brolly.
Our collection of outdoor beach umbrellas also includes the attention grabbing Hula! With its generously sized canopy, raffia thatched outer, vented top, sturdy pole and carry bag - this one is perfect for either the pool or paradise!
** COMING SOON ** Back for another summer, will be our fabulous Project Ten collection of totes, beach bags, pouches and insulated bags. These are on their way from Australia and should be with us next week - keep an eye out for them on our Instagram or Facebook page!
This is very cool. We are part of a select group of stores (and the only one in Auckland!) who are partnering with the Good Bit***s Baking Trust and Fix & Fogg to sell the fundraising Kindness Spread. GBB is a network of people who want to show kindness to those in their communities who are having a rough time. How? By baking them a delicious treat. Last year, this delicious spread sold out in 6 hours - by purchasing a jar, you're helping this amazing network to reach more people. Buy your jar here.
It was a mad week last week, but we have managed to transform this little corner of the store into a treasure trove of all things Christmas. We've got all your favourite Glasshouse fragrances back in stock, cute tabletop trees, a delicious collection from Ecoya and a wonderful range of heirloom decorations. Nearly everything is online but let us know if you spy something that's not!
Well, the countdown is on for Christmas - it has certainly been busier in store, and our online sales have gone up a gear. It looks like many of you are being super-organised this year and are shopping early. That's a great strategy as many of our suppliers are having major difficulty with landing stock - so our advice to everyone is, if you see something you like, get it! Have a great week, Jude x
