Swim between the flags

This is Rob. Rob has worked at the Main Beach, Gold Coast Surf Life Saving Club for 20 years.

We got chatting to Rob and he just LOVES his job. He is out in the sun 5 days a week looking after punters on the beach, helping people out, offering us suncream ( Liz obviously) and saving lives … He was kind enough to showcase our newest design Swim Between the Flags in all its glory.

Our favourite Rob quote of the day … ‘ Everyone is equal on the beach’.

Swim between the flags is $29.

BEER!!

Lots of exciting things are being delivered this week and next! We just a HUGE load of these amazing Brewsmith home brewing kits. Our favourite is obviously the Aussie Wattle Pale Ale Kit.

We have passed our favourite day of the year, Wattle Day (September 1st), but this one would be perfect for Christmas Day! Aussie Wattle Pale Ale is an easy drinking beer that shows off some of the unique flavours that Australia produces. In this beer, we use all Australian hops and fresh-ground wattle seed. It adds flavour and body to the beer (you’ll taste a slight nuttiness and a rich mouth-feel). A delicious and versatile beer – this one you can drink easily but has a real depth of flavour.

Great on a blazing hot day or a cool rainy evening. These kits are the perfect gift for the man with EVERYTHING!

This kit contains:

· Malt extract, hops, specialty grains, wattle seed, and premium brewing yeast
· Starter brewing kit – everything you need to make 2 six packs. Just add bottles!

Estimated ABV: 4.4%

Deb ‘Spoons’ Perry Does Django Django

WE LOVE DEB! She has done it again with another hilarious spoons classic. This time she takes on Django Django Default.

We haven’t stopped laughing and smiling since we saw this. What a legend!!

Blooms

These stunning Aussie natives (Golden Pendas) have been bloosoming around town. The rain must have done them good, they are the most amazing cadmium yellow and the fluffy buds just make you smile.

These ones have been making us smile all week!

 

 

Wooden Roos

We have an amazing new product in this week! A divine, pieced together wooden Kangaroo.  They are about 1m high and about 50cm across. A great present for a new bub, or as a stand along beautiful object for big people.  Handmade in the Byron Shire for E&W.

They also have special additional reindeer ears, so you can theme him for Christmas time.
