Popping up here and there
Posted by Anna Macoboy
Peonies are only available for about a month every year so I pounce on them as soon as they appear. They are the kind of beautiful that leaves me breathless. I have two bunches at the moment - these beautiful white ones at home and the pretty pink ones at the shop.
I have a couple of bits of news to share as well! If you've been quick to grab the latest copy of Frankie magazine (in stores yesterday) you might have noticed Mr Sparrow popping up in a new promotional section called Shop Front. I haven't had a chance to have a proper read of the mag yet but it looks like a great issue and there is a story about Australians living in Berlin - woo!
Another place you will find Mr Sparrow popping up at the moment is The Gift Corner. This fantastic online gift guide researches the latest trends, sources products from boutique online stores and presents them as gift suggestions on their site. You'll find some Mr Sparrow products listed under a number of categories including Christmas, Thank You, Baby Shower, Father's Day and Handmade. I'm excited to be a part of the guide as creator Annetta is passionate about supporting small business and promoting handmade, ethical and unique products. The products listed on the site change regularly and the Mr Sparrow products will change after Christmas, so keep checking back.
And one final bit of news: tomorrow is the last day to place your orders online in order to guarantee delivery by Christmas Eve! So if you've been thinking about ordering something through the online store for Christmas make sure you do it by 4:00pm (Perth time) tomorrow. If you miss the deadline, though, don't despair! If you choose Express Post you can still order online up to Tuesday 21st, or you can place your order online and choose "pick up from Subiaco store" and have until 6pm Christmas Eve to collect your purchase. And of course you can drop into Mr Sparrow any time between 9.30am and 6pm Monday - Saturday and until 9pm on Thursdays until Christmas...
Phew! I think that's all :)
