Finally the ordered soap shakers are sent and we have the new improved stainless steel ones in stock.
The last dates for before Christmas posting for New Zealand is Dec 19th, Australia is Dec 9th, Europe, America South Pacific, East Asia and UK is 3rd Dec and the rest of the world Dec 1st.
We have a small range of really exciting clothing coming out soon for female farmers under the label of Rural Women's Clothing (RWC). I have found that most clothing for the female farmer is usually unisex, equestrian, athletic or just plain wrong so I have set about fixing all the things that annoy me. THE OILSKIN is a fabulous redesigned oilskin with all the things wrong with other ones fixed, winter clothing that is easy to get on and off as it is cold in the mornings but warms up during the day as well as a limited range of the female farmers hand spun and hand knitted farm jersey which removes the need for a woolly hat, gloves and scarf. These will probably be up on the website either just before or just after Christmas.
Happy vegetable gardening to those of you in the Southern hemisphere and keep warm to those of you in the Northern hemisphere. Enjoy any breaks you have and have fun.
I'm sure a few of you have been asking this question for a while now.
I can't apologise enough for your delay and frustration.
The saga so far is that due to high demand we decided to start making the soap shakers again and told you all that.
Orders came flooding in but when we went to buy the particular gauge wire that we use we found that the Chinese had bought it all up eek.
A decision was made to move to a larger gauge wire and this was ordered but then we managed to find a stainless steel wire at the right gauge. The original order was cancelled and now we can go ahead and make a better designed and better quality soap shaker - whew!
The expected date of them being ready is the 6th November.
All orders received up until the 6th November will be able to have the new soap shaker at the existing price but after this we will need to raise the price a few dollars to accommodate the extra wire in the new design and to cover the cost of the stainless steel instead of the coated mild steel.
If at any point anyone would prefer to cancel their order this will be no problem and once again I can't apologise enough for the delay.
Our thoughts are also with our neighbours in NSW Australia involved in the terrible fires.
