New Products!

There are a number of wonderful new products at Spiral Garden. It's always exciting to find new artists and suppliers who fit with Spiral Garden's ideals.

Recently, some fantastic felt and lotka paper products arrived from My Fair Ladybird. They're already proving to be popular gift ideas. The products include felt elephants, faerie garlands, boxes of faeries, jewelery/trinket boxes, and coin purses. The elephants come in three sizes - 15cm, 10cm and 3cm in pink, purple, red, turquoise and snow white! We're rapt to be able to offer affordable, fair trade goodies in time for Christmas. Starting at $4.50, they're affordable as well!

Sam at Earthslings has been busy creating some oh-so-cute animal tails. They're available in faux fur or cotton flannel and are sure to be a favourite dress-up (or wear every day) item for little ones.

Earthslings' Jumbo Wraps are also available through Spiral Garden now, and are sure to become as popular as Sam's fantastic Kidslings in no time - 100% cotton, bright colours, quality and value.

Due to customer feedback in our recent survey, we're sourcing more gifts for Teens. The new hemp bracelets are gorgeous, and only $7.50 each. Another bargain gift item some teens will love are the rainbow dyed bandanas at only $5.00 each.

And finally, from Busy Bee Handcrafts we have some amazingly soft face and body washcloths and gorgeous cotton dishcloths (which seem too beautiful to wash up with, but are a delight to use and use again). We've used crocheted cotton dishcloths for over a year and highly recommend them.

New stock of our much-loved Cradle Dolls will arrive any day, and this is the last batch before Christmas, so order soon!

Shady Grove Soap is also back in stock - in delightfully subtle rose, lavender and sandalwood fragrances using 100% vegetable oils.

Keep an eye on the New Products pages as we're expecting more new items in the coming weeks.

The last of the Specials items have been further marked down. These are strictly limited stock, so hurry!

Happy Shopping!

Stockmar Products

Do you like Stockmar art supplies? Have you tried them? We love them here, and have had the same ones for years. The block crayons in particular just last and last! They have been well-loved from toddlers to adults, including visitors as they're often in the basket on our table.

I choose to sell Stockmar products because they're created by a well-respected German company of over 80 years who consistently stand for aesthetics, safety and fun. To read more about Stockmar, go here.

Here are the Stockmar products we sell at Spiral Garden. If you'd like us to order any other Stockmar products for you, don't hestiate to contact Bel.

Gaia's Garden

Out of stock for many months, I'm rapt to be able to offer my customers a brand new print run of Gaia's Garden.

This game is cooperative. With team work, we have more possibilities and we can reach more goals. Play and work together to plant the whole garden and to prevent the pest insects from eating the crops.

Gaia's garden invites the gardeners to plant vegetables in their garden to have food to eat. Unfortunately, pest insects enjoy these yummy vegetables too. Luckily, predator insects are chasing and eating the pest insects, helping the gardeners.

Will the gardeners be quick enough to plant the vegetables in a beneficial companionship or will the pest insects have a chance to attack?

For 2 to 6 players, for ages 4 to adult. Playing time: 30 – 60 minutes. A detailed booklet with examples of how to play is included.


Also available is Living Landscapes. Design and create together with your friends, an energy-productive and sustainable system to fulfill your needs.

This co-operative permaculture card game is an educational tool for sustainable living and gardening design. Living Landscapes is also fun to play and encourages discussion.

Currently 25% off! Only $12.00 while current stock lasts.

Honey Sticks Beeswax Crayons

Honey Sticks beeswax crayons are made from NZ beeswax and non-toxic pigments so they are natural and safe for children.

The beeswax to create Honey Sticks is a natural by-product of honey production. The sustainable process causes minimal impact on the environment and gives the crayons a wonderful scent of honey.

These chunky crayons come in a box of 12 vibrant colours. The unique chubby shape of Honey Sticks makes them easier for small hands to hold but much more difficult for small hands to break!
