The Squirrels Story

In 2005 Vanessa and Warren bought Tete a Tete Vintage clothing upstairs in the historic Shands Emporium, and so the journey began....

It was a dream come true!  A dressup box at the top of the stairs....

A wonderful haven of prettiness for all those who loved vintage...

But there was too much treasure for the wee space, so we opened up our storeroom for people to play in....

Squirrels being squirrels!  We needed more playrooms.  So in 2008 we gave Tete a Tete Vintage a sister store Two Squirrels Vintage, which was just around the corner in the Cashel Mall.

In November 2010 the wee vintage shops were happily playing, each having a birthday.  Tete a Tete vintage was 5yrs old and Two Squirrels was 2yrs old.
The Squirrels were just splendid......

Until mother nature came to town!!!!
EARTHQUAKES....both shops were SQUASHED!! 

Goodbye shops....

September 2011 the squirrels were their Backyard!!!  the 'Nest' a pop up shop was opened...

The story ENDS and STARTS
We closed the pop up shop the 'Nest' on the 5th of February 2012
to start a new journey...

ONLINE!!!  Squirrels in Cyber Space!!!
Wish us luck sweet peas.

*The Squirrels online store is on holiday at the moment because...

Well those little squirrels are off on another adventure!  
We would like to introduce you to 'BASIL' our wee camper.
Basil will be our home for the next few months or so while we
 go meandering around New Zealand. 

Can't keep a good squirrel down!!!


After 6 months of being gypsy squirrels...

The Next Chapter has begun!

Well...the squirrels bought an old church on the top of a hill
in the middle of nowhere!!!!

'St Brigids' built in 1924 snuggled into the rolling hills of central Otago is now 
home sweet home!

Mmmm, Oh what does a squirrel do in a church on top of a hill in the
middle of nowhere?



A New Adventure begins....
