my first stockist!

I got an email the other day from Sharon at Flax Gallery and Gifts in Bureta (Tauranga) asking if she could have a look at some of my waterproof purses for her gorgeous new shop.  The lovely Sarah from Songbird designs had told her about my purses (she has provided some cute- as button rings for Flax) so after visiting the shop I made up a few make-up bags using fabrics I thought suited Flax. It was very exciting to take them to the shop today- thanks Sharon for being my very first stockist!
The shop has an awesome range of NZ inspired art and design items, cool crafty things, jewellery and loads more...  and she makes a good coffee too!
And if you haven't entered already, it's the last day to enter my giveaway tomorrow, entries close 7pm NZ time and I'll draw the winner either tomorrow night or Wednesday morning.

I didn't even know there was such a great shop in Bureta - I thought it was just a park. I will have to make a pilgrimmage and put flowers in front of your purses.
