Newsletter - 1st June 2024

Happy weekend to you 🙂

Winter has certainly hit the ground running this year. I hope you are keeping warm. If you need a snuggle with something warm and your cat is sick of your lap, perhaps consider adding a heat bag to your order this week!

We have some of our usual weekly and fortnightly orders open this week, as well as some of our bimonthly orders, which are closing tonight. You can find a review on some of the Kin Kin Naturals range here.

I'm pleased to announce that as of next week, Bass River Dairies will be moving back to a weekly order.

We have a whole lot of new items in Fills, including cheese, drink bottles, chocolate bars, hand-baked bites, seeds, shampoo and conditioner, and a new set of meal bases from Mingle. You can now find a list of items in fills later in the newsletter.

Please note that paper towels are out of stock with our supplier, so they are unavailable for ordering. If you ordered paper towels in the last month, they are on back order. If you would prefer a refund, please let me know.

Orders Permanently Open

A reminder that the following orders are always open and available for purchase (links open order page):

  • 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;

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

  • 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.
