Preloved Pics - new feature!

Every Friday, we bring you our pick of the week from our preloved kids clothing.

We stock preloved clothing because recycling is great... we prefer to dress our own daughter in preloved because organic clothing in larger sizes is hard to find.... and who knows what chemicals may be lurking in new clothing?

We have a huge range instore ranging from PP, JK of course, Osh Kosh and delicious European labels galore - H & M, Next , Baby Gap, Gap, Mothercare, Oilily, Petit Bateaux and other French labels...and the occasional organic cotton item. From NB to 6 years.

If you can't shop instore at our Petone store, we will bring you one pick every week...

This week we have two preloved bodysuits from Albetta at only $19.90 each (these retail at $44-)

1) Albetta Blue "Peace not War" bodysuit, size 3-6 months in 100% cotton
2) Albetta White "Incy Wincy Spider" bodysuit, size 3-6 months in 100% cotton

To purchase, just contact us but be quick, quality preloved items don't hang on our racks for long!

Fruity Gumboot

Remember the days when you visited your Grandparents with their had a huge 1.4 acre section with fruit trees laden with fruit. They probably served up sumptuous afternoon teas (mine did) with scones and homemade jams, and homemade lemonade and fruit crumble was an everyday indulgence!

Fruit trees are longer a thing of the past! If you live in AUCKLAND, and would love to have your own fruit trees but lack the know-how or time ... Fruity Gumboot to the rescue!

Fruity Gumboot makes it easy to raise organic fruit trees in the family – Their packages include planting, maintenance and a guarantee!

Fruity Gumboot have 8 popular fruit tree packages to choose from. Before planting they make a complimentary visit to your garden to advise on the best location for your preferred fruit trees, taking into consideration soil type, sun, space and how your garden is used.

They plant strong healthy trees in optimised site conditions and every Fruity Gumboot fruit tree package comes with a year of care and maintenance (using organic methods) to ensure that your fruit trees have the best start in life. Best of all they pledge a Thrive-or-Replace Guarantee!

An organic approach recognises the value of a garden rich in diversity. Fruity Gumboot promotes a harmonious ecological system through companion planting. Each fruit tree is under-planted with flowers such as marigolds, phacelia and nasturtiums to encourage beneficial insects into your garden.

While I myself have a thriving vegetable garden but no fruit tree know-how, all I can say is please open a Wellington branch, please, please, please!
