Roadside Attraction, Waitati
For more than 20 years we have been designing clothing and supplying a couple of chain stores throughout NZ. We have also had a couple of retail outlets, although we are now semi retired and working from home. We fill orders after they are placed online; as well as supplying "The Wool Store & More" in Waikouaiti.
We welcome all enquiries and can tweak garments from our range for local customers.
We also handprint cushions, tea towels and t-shirts. The major impact of lockdown was the temporary closure of "The Woolstore & More", and being unable to access our outworkers.
Our online stores are accessible and customers are welcome to contact us via text message, email, facebook or through the website. No voice calls please as I am deaf.
The best thing about living in the bay is seeing so many people wearing our clothes, some for years as they are made to last.
Thanks for your support guys, we really appreciate it."

Our world turned upside down when COVID-19 hit. Life as we knew it came grinding to a halt. And the impact of it will be felt for a long time yet. But not all of the impact has been bad. For many it has shown how strong we are as communities. And more than ever, it has pushed for a shift to #supportlocal.
As my way of supporting my own community bubble, I reached out to local businesses to see how the COVID Lockdown has impacted them.
In the process I discovered so many amazing people, with some fantastic businesses, all right here in our backyard.
And I would like to introduce them all in this new series of Behind Closed Doors ~The Blueskin Bay Edition.
