Winner Announced!

Winner Announced!


It’s been a strangely warm and pleasant start to winter for us in the deep South, but we are now waiting with baited breath for some snow to fall on the mountains…not only for us to enjoy, but for the thousands of guests due to file into town for next week’s Winter Festival.

We’ve had an amazing response to our promotion, to win a trip for two to Winter Festival, and are very excited to announce our lucky winner below.


NEW Products

We’ve had a few new items grace our shelves over the past few weeks, which are both, at this stage, one-off designs. For the girls we have a gorgeous cross-over top with cute polka dot trim, and for the boys a new stripe top in North Sea and Milo, which has been flying off the shelves! Be in quick to make sure you don’t miss out…these may not be repeated. The cross-over tops are on the website for pre-orders, due to arrive in-store late next week.


American Express Winter Festival Street Parade & Teddy Bears Picnic –

Saturday 25 June 2011.

We are working hard on our inaugural float entry in the American Express Winter Festival Street Parade and are hoping to get as many people down there as possible for the event…if you are in the area we’d love to see you there!

Our Float will be parked up at Earnslaw Park after the Parade for the Teddy Bears Picnic, and will be giving away balloons and Three Bags Full product…it will be a great day out for the kids!


And the winner is….

Congratulations to Jo Doyle of Ashburton, South Canterbury who is our winner of our Win a Trip to Queenstown promotion. It was such a thrill to make that call to let Jo know she had won!

Jo will be enjoying return flights for two to Queenstown on Air New Zealand, 2 nights accommodation at Novotel Gardens, dinner at Winnies Pizza Bar and breakfast at Vudu Café and Larder.


Oaty Chocolate & Cinnamon Cookies

These quick and easy little gems are a great lunch box filler and really just a twist on the traditional Anzac biscuit recipe…very easy and quite healthy too! My kids love them fresh out of the oven with a glass of milk after school…yummy!


½ cup flour                                                50g butter

1/3 cup sugar                                                1 tbsp golden syrup

2/3 cup coconut                                    ½ tsp baking soda

¾ cup rolled oats                                    2 tbsp boiling water

1 tsp cinnamon                                    2 handfuls chocolate chips


Turn oven to 170 degrees C, and line or grease a baking tray.

Mix all dry ingredients together (except for chocolate chips)

Gently melt butter and golden syrup together – do not boil.

Dissolve baking soda in hot water, then add to butter mix and whisk to combine.

Add butter mixture to dry ingredients and mix gently, then add in chocolate chips and mix to combine.

Roll walnut size balls and place on baking tray, and flatten slightly before baking for 10 minutes or until golden brown.                                   


To make these Gluten Free, I substitute flour for Bakel’s Gluten Free Health Flour Mix.


And the other winner is….

Congratulations to Jolene Garrett  of Rotorua who is the winner of our Three Bags Full Club prize-draw for a Three Bags Full top of her choice.




We hope you are all keeping nice and warm wherever you are, and we hope to see some of you at the Parade or Teddy Bears Picnic next week.


Thank you for your continuing support,


Pip & Tracey
