In the meantime, we'd rather sell products than move them, so we've created a bunch of specials, available both in-store (once we can open again) and on-line. Most are clearance items, so once they're gone, they're gone as after moving we'll be fo...

  16. Face Mask Update and Store Trading Hi Everyone, Today's announcement by the Vic Government about compulsory masks from midnight on July 22 saw our website traffic skyrocket and the stock we placed online late this morning sell very quickly.

  18. Selling "tricky things" on-line - a simple solution One of the challenges we've always faced as a business that has a shop and a website is that some of our items change often, are unique, hand made or "one-off". We've never really put these things online before because we know it can be really hard to "guess" what a design may look like, especially if it's a gift for someone. To create a unique on-line code for every single design would not be manageable, so we needed a simple method, even if not perfect. Soluti...
