We went to the relaunch of Pookipoiga's store in Richmond, who also happens to be our new stockist! The night went beautifully done and we couldn't be happier to be part of the Pookipoiga family.
Pookipoiga is a Richmond-based giftware shop and social enterprise which focuses on products that people love and make sure that they are ethical, sustainable and fair trade before it comes into the store.
As they turn 3 this year, they relaunched with an even better selection of goods that not only embodies the ethos of 'buying better', but also many of which are supporting local artists and makers (including myself!)
The night was a beautiful way to introduce the new store, with homemade brownies, cheese platters with some wine and beers. Lots of locals popped in and got to know many of the artists and makers, which was so humbling and beautiful!
I was fortunate enough to be included in this electic mix of beautiful clothing, books, homewares, quirky gifts, and home products. You can now shop S-kin Studio Jewelry in store and online, and they ship all over Australia and worldwide!
"Pookipoiga" is a Finnish word (or in Finnish Pyykkipoika) which literally translates to "little washer boy", which is normally used in Finnish for "clothes peg". Pookipoiga evolved from an idea that the world is a great place and we need to do more to look after it.
The founders at Pookipoiga also donate a meal to the homeless for every purchase online and at the store through SecondBite. You buy something, someone eats something and food doesn't get wasted- win win!
