Now available from…Petrichor Studio

So I just quickly want to thank everyone who popped in to SAM (South African Market) for the launch of our 1 week only Apron Sale : ) We had such a great night and so far the sale is still going pretty well! Don’t worry if you think you have missed out, there are still 3 more days left if you want to get in on this action! For those who might have missed it earlier, we are taking 10% off all Handmade by me chef and vintage aprons until this Thursday 10th April. Pop into SAM, or go online and take advantage of the sale at the Handmade By Me online shop, Hello Pretty and/or Etsy.

Need I remind you that it is Mother’s Day next month….ahem ; )

And then I would like to introduce to you, Handmade by me’s latest online stockist, Petrichor Studio. Situated in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa, Petrichor Studio is all about creating sustainable spaces for clients – in the home, the office and the garden. They offer a complete consultation and design service for interiors and gardens, and they have a lovely little online shop that compliments that all nicely.

“Michelle Hatherly has many years of garden design experience primarily using indigenous plants, as well as several years practice as an interior designer. She is passionate about sustainable and eco-friendly design and employs the “reduce, re-use, recycle” principles in her inspiring design of spaces.

Petrichor Studio has also evolved with the collaboration of Michelle and her photographer/designer daughter, Sasha Hatherly. They have considered creating an online store for some years, which would showcase the talents of local South African designers and artists.

Now a reality, the Store will ultimately ‘stock’ a range of handmade furniture, lighting, cushion covers and other accessories which are useful, durable, but which will also beautifully decorate home, office and garden, and create sustainable spaces to live and work in. Many will be cleverly re-purposed items, as well as those produced from recycled materials. A select range of indigenous bulbs and seeds grown by Petrichor Studio, will also be available to purchase in the Store.”

Last orders for Christmas deadline dates!!

Here are the post office deadlines for any orders that you would like to receive by Christmas! I generally post items 1 to 2 days after the order has been placed. Items ordered on the deadline day will still be posted out the next day . Please note that it is hard to keep up to date with stock at the moment as it moves pretty quickly this time of year, so if you would like to find out about stock levels before ordering please email me, I am happy to help you during this crazy time of year!

Please also note that my studio will be closed from the 20th December to the 4th January so no orders will be posted out during that time, but you may place orders to be posted out when I am back, provided they are in stock.

NATIONAL AND LOCAL ORDERS DEADLINE
Last day to order with post office shipping option: Thursday 13th December
Last day to order with courier (same day and overnight): Tuesday 18th December

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS DEADLINE
Last day to order with post office shipping option: Thursday 6th December

I still have a few Christmas markets lined up so if you would like to avoid any shipping costs at all you will still have a few chances to get what you want. All market info and dates can be found here over the next few weeks.

Thanks so much
