Sad cat!

Ok sweetpeas this is an update on the shops and our situation. Sorry we have been avoiding doing this as it is sad,
Time is ticking by and we have had people asking.
- red zone for both shops, it maybe 4-6 weeks before we know if we can get access, unfortunately it is looking like we may not have an opportunity to get in and save some of the treasures.
-both buildings have major damage, 2 squirrels may have to be demolished and tete a tete will probably need to be made safe before entry, we don't know the state of the stock.
- we have a small amount of stock at home.(not enough to start new shop)
-the car is trapped behind the building, both set of keys in shop.
-all records, cheque book, cash in till, jewellery, Hannahs birthday present, my glasses, MY MAKEUP BAG,and many other things are trapped in Tete a Tete vintage and Two squirrels!
The waiting is just horrible, these fab wee spaces and thing we love doing are just hanging in space.
We just want get in and rescue our treasure!!!
So we are sad cats(squirrels) with no jobs.
Maybe going a-little crazy!


  1. Sorry to hear this :( Thinking of you guys!

  2. I am so sorry to hear this. :( Is there anything we can do to help? I know you have lots of fans and customers who want to do something.

  3. Sad :( Sorry to hear V. Just be glad you're both okay, you both could've easily been hurt! Best wishes xx

    ps; consider setting up on trademe with the stock you do have? link it around on here and you have TONS of customers who'll want to buy! Maybe something to keep you going a wee while?

  4. I came here to say exactly what Celia did, which is that you could sell things on Trademe! I know it's not ideal, but it could be a way to tide you over while you wait to hear about the shops. I'd be happy to help you out with any aspects of it, my life is rather relaxed since uni and work died down! We are all thinking of you and wanting to help in this horrible time. xo

  5. Or an Etsy store? (Prettier/nicer than TradeMe). Then those of us who have blogs can promote it to high heaven, link to it etc, and tell your story - would mean overseas customers too? And it's really easy, I have one!

  6. or the new zealand etsy!

  7. How sad for both of you, and frustrating too! Please know though that you are missed, and Christchurch really does need who you are, and what you bring. Your warmth and care would not be shared so much on the web...I do hope that we can all be fortunate enough to enjoy a new store again one day. I'm sure there are many vintage lovers here who would love to help you bring a new place to life, like me! Love Katherine x
