This just in...It's very cold this winter. Ya! and if you would like to warm up and do so in style then new to the shop are these gorgeous wraps, shawls and ponchos.
"Mapuche" textile from Chile. Handloomed as the have been for centuries, these fair traide garments are designed by native Chilean and Newtown resident Sabrina Garnica.
the colours are out of this world and the accesories are amazing. Metal "Tupu" pins can also be purchased in store to adorn the shawls.

good press

Well, well what an amazing month it has been for the shop so far. So happy to announce Juniper was featured in an amazing article in the lifestyle section by columnist Kyle Walker of Wellington's "Dominion Post" as well and the debut issue of the very new and stylish "CityLife" community magazine! So much lovely press and comments about the shop really helps on the days when I am scared out of my mind and wondering what the heck I got myself into. Retail is hard and scary and a total gamble but if you believe in it and love what you are selling, if your products come from the soul, I have seen that people do really appreciate and support that. I love that about my community. I have never felt alone in this business yet. Nearly everyday someone asks how the shop is going because they really care if it succeeds. How cool is that?

Recently Melissa of Liss Photography took some snaps of the shop. I am so pleased at how she managed to capture the true spirit of the shop.

My Sewcherry handbags are a hot buy at $50 for a messenger bag or $45 for a tote. You can even customise your bag. Come into view our range of fabrics & vinyls. You can even choose how many pockets for the inside.

Newtown kids (as pictured) are still a hit and come in every color combination of vintage fabric imaginable. And you'll have to check out the newest addition the "Newtown Bully" an over sized version of the newtown kids for $25.

The Sewcherry baby bibs are back in stock at $15 ea.
