Mother’s Day gifts can be hard – so choose one your mum will love and one that has been made locally, by hand, and isn’t headed for the landfill in the near future. Choose from a range of elegant M2Matiz t.lighthaus designs and help mum create a relaxing and beautiful environment with the soft diffused glow of a tea light lantern. Pair it with a pure Australian beeswax candle…

Queen B make 100% pure Australian beeswax candles which are gentler on our planet – smoke free, non-toxic and non-allergenic. They are made of natural beeswax, not petroleum based wax, so they are effectively carbon neutral.

Treat mum to a stunning accessory by Mainichi Design, a mixed textile brooch or a wonderfully tactile bush wood necklace.
The Cath Kidston scarf kit is perfect for a crafty mum, and don’t forget if she’s already an accomplished yarn artiste she may appreciate something from our yarn shelves, or range of hooks and needles!
And of course we have Little Sparrow gift vouchers, always gratefully received and are good for purchases in store as well as for our workshops and classes!
The adorable and popular range of wooden art pieces from Merry-Go-Round has been replenished! These locally made treasures have been really popular baby gifts, so we are pleased to have some new, unique pieces for you to choose from. You’re sure to find a favourite amongst these sweet faces, created entirely from reclaimed materials…
These girlies might like pink, but flying kites and playing with turtles is pretty awesome too!
Sunny yellow blocks will brighten any shelf, and the one at the top with the little boy and girl writing a letter is so precious.
And these theatrical sweethearts are the pefrect finale: dance into little sparrow to see the other pixies, babies and boys we have from Merry-Go-Round.
We are excited to share with you the beautiful handmade candles of Queen B beeswax, new to our shelves! Made with 100% pure Australian beeswax, a pure cotton wick and copious amounts of hand made love. With Queen B candles you experience the longer burn times, natural honey aroma, beautiful golden light and superior burning experience of pure beeswax candles and you’ll understand why beeswax candles are said to be the best candles available.
Queen B uses 100% pure Australian beeswax in their candles – because it is Australian and of the highest quality in the world. Burning beeswax candles is better for your environment – your immediate environment in the room where you burn your candles, and also the planet’s environment. Unfortunately, over 98% of candles sold in the market are made from paraffin – a petrochemical by-product. While a paraffin candle emits toxic smoke when burning (similar to the smoke coming out of a car exhaust), a beeswax candle will purify the air you breathe through ionization.
Choose Queen B and support the environment, beekeepers and the talented artisans who create these beautiful candles.
