Welcome to Whimsy 'Eco-Friendly' does not need to be boring. Check out these NZ made products designed to brighten your day and still help save our planet. I hand craft upcycled refillable notebooks, sew book cosies, make upcycled bunting and sell the fantastic takeaway cups by Cuppacoffeecup.
Little Golden Book Notebooks $12.50 I preserve these pre-loved books by upcycling them into reusable notebooks. I add 80 pages of 100% recycled paper and keep the original story nestled at the back of these blank pages. These unique handmade notebooks make a cute eco-friendly gift idea, especially for book lovers For sale at Etsy for global or Green Elephant for local
Lined Book Cosy with Pre-Loved Fabric and Zippered $28 I call it a book cosy but you can call it a tablet/computer/make-up/artist's cosy/pouch. Each one is unique - lined and padded with recycled natural fabric, a new zip and a funky zip pull are added. Some even have pockets (if they used to be an apron). For sale at Etsy for global or Green Elephant for local
Cuppacoffeecup Reusuable Takeaway Cup $16.50 Proudly made in New Zealand these are the cups I use, in the car and to buy a takeaway coffee. They are food-grade polypropylene – a plastic that can be easily recycled at the end of its life, BPA free, inexpensive with an eclectic collection of Kiwi and Australian designs to choose from. For sale on this website to New Zealanders with internet banking, or from markets I visit. Browse the slideshow of designs and then email me your order.
Upcycled Bunting $22.00 Re-live the cosy feelings of nostalgia by buying a one- of- a- kind bunting made from Little Golden Book pages. An easy way to decorate a child's bedroom, need a gift for a teacher or book lover, or buy it for yourself to make you happy. For sale at Green Elephant or from markets I visit.
Vintage Little Golden Books (intact) starting at $10 I mainly sell Little Golden Books made into notebooks, on Etsy, but sometimes I find a book in my travels that I declare is too good to cut up. Either it is a first edition, 1970's or earlier or just in such good repair that it would be a valued addition to any child's bookcase, or in a collectors shelf. For sale at Etsy
