I am sure you know what it is like, you stumble upon something online (or instore) and you fall in love with it straight away. You try and try very hard to forget all about it but you can’t and you keep going back to look at it. Well that’s exactly what happened to me when I first spotted the Mockingbird Street range at Bean and Me…
As soon as I saw the Gumnut collection for little girls I was sold. The beautiful warm and inviting colours, the delightful (and very Australian) gumnut print, simple but classy polkadots and last but absolutely not least the lovely 300 thread count certified organic and Fairtrade cotton, it is a winning combination. I have already added this stunning set to my wishlist for baby Sybil, it would look amazing in her nursery.
Created by the talented Bonnie and Emily Australian children’s homewares label Mockingbird Street delivers stylish, high quality products that are gentle on the skin and the environment (ecofriendly, sustainable material choices) and fair on the people that make them. When you buy certified Fairtrade goods you can rest assured that both farmers and factory workers receive a fair and stable pay and child labour is prohibited. You are also investing in community development through health, education and environmental programmes.
The current Mockingbird Street range consists of two collections: Gumnut for beautiful little girls and Village for hip boys. Each collection can be purchased as a set ($179.90) with double sided cot quilt, flat sheet and fitted sheet, all pieces are suitable for standard and Boori cots. You can also buy the quilt and sheets separately which is ideal if you never use top sheets, just take two fitted sheets instead and still pay the same price (See, they’re fair on you too!).
Especially for Hip little one readers Bean and Me has a lovely reader offer: To enjoy 10% off storewide at Bean and Me simply enter the code ‘HIPHIP’ at checkout, offer ends August 16, 2013.
