Newsletter - 17th December 2023

Happy weekend to you 🙂

I'm back online this week after my very elderly laptop limped to the finish line of life last week and refused to go an inch further. He lived a hard life, first as a development machine for hubby (not an cushy job!), and then handed down to me for his retirement. He will be missed.

We have a new, seasonal product available in the GF Precinct order for a short time - Fruit Mince Tarts (Gluten Free) will be available for this week only, I believe. They will be available for pickup on Saturday 23rd December.

Our Mango Fundraiser mangoes will be arriving tomorrow! If you wanted to order a tray or five, and missed out earlier, we have a few spare trays available in Fills.

Also remember our Tomato Fundraiser is on, as well as the 2024 Calendar fundraiser for FOP (all proceeds go to FOP Australia for research and helping people affected by FOP). You can read more about that here.

Orders Permanently Open

A reminder that the following orders are always open and available for purchase:

  • Mango Fundraiser - this will be open until the Fills trays sell out. More information can be found in the 2nd September Newsletter.

  • Tomato Condiment Fundraiser - this will be open until the products run out.

  • Cheeky Monkey - Heat bags made from 100% cotton fabric and thread, with removable, washable covers. They contain corn instead of wheat, making them suitable for people with wheat allergies. You can read more about them on the product pages;

  • Olive and Bee Intimate Cream - recommended by one of our members who has been using it for a couple of years. It has uses as a moisturiser and massage oil as well as a personal lubricant. It has two ingredients - olive oil and beeswax - and is Australian made and owned by a small business. We have some tester tubes coming soon. You can read more about it on the product page;

  • There are always items available in Fills. Fills are important because they let us buy items in bulk (by the carton) so we can continue to get big discounts, but items do need to keep moving through there to keep us financially viable 🙂 So if you need anything, or want to treat yourself to something (there’s always cheese!) head over and check out Fills.

Orders Currently Open

The following orders are currently open (links open each order page):

  • GF Precinct - local, handmade gluten-free breads, wraps, dinner rolls, burger buns, pizza bases, bread crumbs and cakes, using locally-milled stone ground buckwheat and organic besan (chickpea) flours. Their products are preservative-free;

  • émotions - bamboo and recycled toilet paper, tissues and paper towels, including a range made in Melbourne (remember that if you have never tried their products before, you can buy samples (individual rolls) of the four different toilet paper types they offer at any time from Fills or from the émotions shop page). émotions is a Melbourne-based social enterprise, run by women and donating 50% of profits to mental health organisations; and

  • Eggs - certified pastured, free range eggs, fresh from Thriving Foods Farm, an organic regenerative farm in Koo Wee Rup.

Temporary Change to Bass River Dairy Order

A reminder that the Bass River Dairy order will be open fortnightly for the foreseeable future. It will open in the same week as the other dairy and fridge/freezer goods suppliers (Blue Pumpkin and St David Dairy). It will open next Friday. We may be moving back to weekly ordering in the new year.

Please get in touch with any questions.

Have a lovely week and happy shopping!
