Can one ever have too many handbags?

Ah, the age old question... Well we don't have a definitive answer but we do have some pretty lovely new handbags for your perusal. They'll most likely have you drooling all over your keyboard so get a napkin ready asap.

The latest collection from Melbourne designers b.sirius have dropped and have been SO popular we have already ordered a second delivery. The new range features lush greens, warm winter browns, deep reds and the ever classic black in designs to suit all uses. Big totes, clutches, wallets, over shoulder handbags and even a very spiffy organiser that also doubles as an iPad cover.

Also new in are some fab new pieces from NZ design house Citta that include some pretty rad cosmetic bags (starting at $14.95) and yummy Coin Purses ($29.95). The 'Eva' Yellow Handbag is to die for ($99.95) and the super lush Kenmei Apple Tote ($94.95) is just plain NICE! Drool away folks.

Visit us at Pialligo to see for yourself or check out our online store for these and other goodies.

Heavenly Wood Block Stamps

One of our exciting discoveries late last year were these beautiful wood block stamps hand carved by artisans in India. They are designed and imported to Australia by Dhruva from Heavenly Abode in Byron Bay. Our first lot of stamps sold out very quickly and we have now restocked with more beauties. Come and discover them too!

They are perfect for stamping on paper, card and fabric. Or maybe you're a potter? They work a treat embossing pottery.

Starting at just $4.95 for these teeny weeny ones (below), they are available in several assorted designs like birdies and flowers.
How about these ones? They're around 4-6cm in size and just $9.95 each.

Or maybe you just want to hang this one on your wall?

Asheef and Kumar are some of the masters that carve Heavenly Abode's block stamps.
