Sale Time!

It's early, I know. Stores don't usually start their sales until after Christmas... But we are seriously overstocked! Check out the bargains here.

PS - We can't guarantee delivery, but will try to get orders to you before December 24th (Australia only).

Handmade Christmas?

I often pledge to make each Christmas a handmade one. More often than not, mid-December rolls around and EEEEEEEEEEK - I haven't made everyone's gifts. These days, I figure that if what I'm buying is fair trade or locally handmade, that's still a lot better than ordinary store-bought gifts!

If you love to give handmade too, here are some ideas...

Breastfeeding Mother Doll and Baby $82.00 (I actually have one in stock, which is unusual for this time of year!)

Itsy Bitsy Lou Lou reduced to $30.00 - a fantastic price for a handmade cloth doll of this size with such beautiful clothing - her siblings Molly and Oliver are also up for adoption!

Bamboo Face & Body Wash Cloths $10.00 each

All of the Beguile Soaps and Lip Balms are handmade here in Australia!

Jasminka's Silk Angel Mobiles are just perfect and only $40.00 each.

We love our Hand-felted Garden Flags - a very versatile gift.

Eco Clay is handmade and certainly hand tested around here!

The very popular Sandwich Wraps are just $15.00 each. Our last stock sold out quickly, so order soon.

Juggling Balls are great fun for all ages! Check out these felt ones!

Of course we have many more dolls, gnomes, animals, bags, dress-ups, jewelery and craft items which are made by hand within Australia. Come and browse our online store today. Almost all of our products are actually handmade or handcrafted, but the ones above are some which are made by people I know, with their own hands!

Thank You!

Thank you to all of our regular customers for your support over the past couple of weeks (and before then of course!) Welcome to our many new customers as well! Please contact me if there's something specific I can order for you, if you have any questions or suggestions.

For overseas Christmas orders, please order by Monday 13th December, Air Mail generally takes 7-10 days from Australia. Within Australia, please order and pay for your Christmas gift orders by Friday 17th December (Direct Deposit), or Sunday 19th December (PayPal), for posting within Australia. If you live in Tassie or Western Australia, it's a good idea to allow a little extra time at this time of year, as mail can be delayed during busy periods. Spiral Garden is located near Tarzali, which is a village in rural Far North Queensland.

Express Post can be arrange for a small extra fee (for any parcels over 500g). Please contact me if you require Express Post.

We will not be closed over the Christmas and New Year period. Parcels will be delayed due to public holidays, but we are available to send your orders as quickly as usual.

Do you need specific items for back-to-school? Most art supplies are in stock, but if there's something else you need, let me know soon as I need to order Main Lesson Books and other goodies from Mercurius. I also plan to stock a lot more homeschooling, unschooling and Steiner education books from January 2011 - please let me know of titles you're after!

My office is still overflowing with tea sets, craft kits, soaps, lip balms, games and toys... Crayon Rocks are still available in both sizes. I look forward to receiving your orders and packing them with care, and taking a bit of stress out of the shopping event of the year!

Seasonal Blessings from our family to yours...

Last New Stock for 2010

What a busy time of year it is! Summer is here for us in the Southern Hemisphere, and with it comes the busy-ness of the celebration season, a general end-of-year flurry and an increase in activity because of the warmer weather... I know our customers in the Northern Hemisphere are also busy right about now, but I wonder if you feel like buzzing bees too, without the sunshine and warm days?

We've finally received the last of our New Products and restocked items for 2010.

Crayon Rocks Standard $10.00
Crayon Rocks Happy Holidays $5.00
Branch Wood Blocks $30.00
Branch Wood Rattle $16.00
... and don't forget our gorgeous Enamel Tea Set and Cookware range, delightful Beguile products (yum), the three Tree Branch Sets (different to the German Branch Wood products) and of course the popular Coconut Wood tea set items and accessories.

Thanks again for your enthusiastic support of Spiral Garden. We delight in finding perfect gifts and everyday items for you and yours. What a joy to offer items which have an impressive impact on the recipient, but a low impact on our planet...
