Flood Relief at Shop During January

Thanks to their amazing and generous designers, when you shop at Shop Handmade during January, 10% of a large range of wares will go to the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal.

Not only that, the enormously generous owners Julie and Rachel will match, dollar-for-dollar, the donated designer amount, and donate the same amout to the appeal.

Your shopping dollar has always gone 100% to designers at Shop Handmade - and now it will go even further, to aid our friends in Queensland, whose lives have been absolutely devastated by the floods.

Come in to Shop and show your support now - or send a local friend in to snaffle some goodies on your behalf. There's never been a greater time to shop at Shop Handmade.
