Well the days are marching by pretty fast for me and even with this wet and cold weather (which I am sick of - roll on summer) I have made a start to get the summer stock all done so that it is ready to come out for the Pirongia Craft Market at the end of September, and I aim to get it onto the website as it get finished this year, there are some lovely new 100% cotton fabrics coming through and this is hard to concentrate on when all I want to do is sit by the heater and watch the Olympics, and boy there have been some very exciting times so far watching us get two Bronzes and then last night the awesome gold medal.
We have changed the length of the our Cotton/Merino Sleeping Bags to make them longer and also to have only two sizes in future, this way you will get longer use out of your bag, so if you go to the Current Specials page you will see all the old sizing ones there on special.
Our Fairy Dresses and Mermaid Tails are all cut out and ready to go now and I will have one very happy granddaughter who has been waiting ages for her mermaid tail like all the others.
When we were at the Bumps, Bubs & Beyond Parenting Expo at the beginning of July we were interviewed by TV Central and we had some of our models there plus the TV Company used some of the photos of other children off our website so I have attached a link to the programme here for you to see it - 3minute tv show It was great to meet so many new people at the show and awesome to know that it is going to be a regular event every year and we have already booked our site for next June.
This year at the Gift Fair we are going to be on the Buy New Made Stand with some of the other New Zealand made products and on a small section of ours will be our friends Weepals Ltd, so pop over to their website and have a look at their NZ made toilet training products
Have you been to Chipmunks Hamilton yet, they have two awesome rides plus all the slides etc. This is definitely worth a visit and all my grandchildren just love it. Great for a rainy cold days as the building is heated and they have yummy food and coffee.
Dont forget if you are a Magic Beans card holder you get 15% discount on our website or at the market by presenting your card and also if you would like to buy card follow this link to get your special price of your Magic Beans card, as there are several businesses listed with them that give you lots of discounts and there are some freebies as well. It is a very worth while card to have.
PHOTO COMPETITION STARTING THIS MONTH
Due to several requests from our members we are once again going to run a photo competition but this time the child must be wearing one of our garments, this can be a beanie, wrap, hoodie, waterproof clothing etc and the winner will be by popular vote (which we did last time as well). We will also be putting the photos onto our facebook page to get you more more votes for your wee ones as well. Also you will be able to share the page among your family and friend to allow them to vote as well.
We are just in the throes of organising the prizes for this competition, but we will be giving a $100 gift voucher to be used on our site for 1st Prize and $50.00 gift voucher for 2nd place.
