Inspirations issue 69Dear  Vivienne,

I thought you might be a little amused to see me trying to fit some of the stock for the Paris show into my suitcase here at work. I think I will have to wear all my clothes in layers on the plane... Or as everyone suggests, just go shopping in Paris!

This week has been topsy turvy in Australia with our weather. We always seem to be talking about the weather at the moment, floods, cyclones and heat, it seems never ending. I hope everyone is safe and our thoughts are with you.

Mum and Dad

I had some special visitors here at Country Bumpkin this week. My gorgeous Mum and Dad popped in to see the latest changes at the new store. The last time they were here we hadn’t finished unpacking, and now its 4 months later and things look a lot different (and a little more finished).


Next week I will be writing to you from Paris and be able to show you some photos of our stand at l’Aiguille en fete.


Computer Bugs


We have been hit by another computer ‘bug’ of sorts. We have only just found that an email address that many of you use had been set up wrongly and many emails that have been sent in the last couple of months have ended up in cyberspace! Our wonderful computer techs have managed to recover most of them (over 2000), but if we haven’t responded to you this is the reason, not because we were ignoring you! So please accept our apologies.

cricketIf you have any outstanding enquiries, this address is all fixed now.

Back in Stock
