A favourite little post......

Sorry guys another 
'Squirrels' at the beach post.

Yip after nearly seven
years of posting here, we seem
to escape to the beach a lot.

Yesterday on a grey old day
we did some beach combing
 collecting pine-cones &  

As well as...

the ebb & flow
of the sea,
being present in our bodies
calming our inner voice and 
leaving the heaviness of life for 
a moment.

That is the
the sea gives you.

Little Gatherer Apron.........

We are so excited to be showing you these
beautiful dressmaker made aprons.

It has been a lovely collaboration with my dear friend
to make a cross over apron in a style I love, 
using beautiful vintage fabrics.

Look at this stunning
   Sage green Sanderson Rose fabric.....
Each apron is a one of a kind and because 
we really are just dipping our little
furry toes in the water,
we only have three available at this stage.

 You can now purchase direct 
from us online
or pop in and see us
this weekend at our Dunedin based
Squirrel HQ.

Can it be????

Do you sometimes look at the
calendar and say to yourself.....
Can it be already??

The big move to Dunedin took place
a year ago....
Wow...that went fast.
We opened the studio in Jutland street
6 months ago as
'Squirrels HQ'
and as always have been
completely humbled by the
wonderful vintage lovers who have come to see us.
We are busy little squirrels each week
prepping stock and setting the stage for
our weekend visitors,
also listing vintage pieces on 
Trade Me.
