The shop is OPEN!

A few weeks ago I thought that we really needed some decorative "Gleaners Inc." bunting for the shop and for our up and coming market stalls. Without hesitation I contacted Ms. Curlypops and a plan was hatched. Who knew my first simple idea would evolve into this gorgeous custom printed fabric lolly shop bunting that references cool 50's canisters and ye olde shop awning. Hurrah for Cam!

Our new "Tin Pan Alley" tin necklaces are now available in our online store and for one week only they are reduced for a super introductory SALE !!!
Bunting, Petals and Hearts designs all crafted from  from recycled biscuit and lolly tins. The tin is hand cut and carefully finished to create a smooth, light necklace that is comfortable to wear.

Hooray! Gleaners Inc. has an online store and our "Tin Pan Alley" bunting necklace is our newest product!!!
This colourful bunting necklace is made from recycled biscuit and lolly tins. The tin is hand cut and carefully finished to create a smooth, light necklace that is comfortable to wear.
The bunting flags show the original colour and patina of age from the tins, making a unique, one-of-a-kind statement piece.
