Handmade kids interview

I had a little chat with Jemma from Handmade kids recently, about the life and times of free range baby. It's such a sweet blog with an inspiring array of goodies for little people...

Meet Ngaio...

A few little snippets from our Friday morning adventures in Ngaio's backyard. We had a great time playing with free range softies and vintage knitted friends on a glorious rain free Wellington winters day. Huge thanks to Ruth (and Al), your daughters a little gem!

Stay tuned for more free range adventures featuring Ngaio.

Ngaio is wearing: Free Range Baby's Little Western merino top in blue with vintage plaid and Olive & Cranes merino in mandarin.

Felt like free shipping...

Shopping online is the perfect thing, it makes heaps of sense not paying for parking in town, not braving the yucky winter weather, and being able to get things from the over side of the world... just like that. And honestly is there anything better than finding packages in the mail box? BUT one of my pet hates is postage extortion or outright refusal - if you are going to the post shop why can't you send it to New Zealand? Planes come here, really its ok!?

There is something super disheartening about finding a vintage bargain, or an awesome pair of boots online, going through to check out and finding it costs five times the price of the item to get it here. I've abandoned many an online shopping cart for just this reason.

So no postal charge day light robbery here. NOPE. From now on all our goodies bought through FELT are free of shipping charges. And our Etsy shop is at cost, which means pretty cheap... a dress from NZ - Norway $6. Thanks NZ post for keeping it real!

Absence Note...

Free Range Baby would like to apologies for slack blogging and a general absence from the interweb. Excuses for slackness include moving cities, house moving, no internet connection, death of computer and loss of photoshop.

But we're back! Enjoying Wellington winter rains, winds and southerlies... finding it a good excuse to wear merino everyday.

Our love of all things orange was truly satisfied when we found a perfect little cottage with a pumpkin colour scheme. Made all the more lovely because it comes complete with super lovely neighbours, including the utterly adorable toddling Amelie, who looks like the perfect Free Range Baby roaming around in the back yard.
