News from Bunyip Basecamp

This autumn is a very exciting time for us here at Bunyip Craft. We witnessed a bit of a miracle when we managed to fit our whole Fore Street shop (and then some) into a miniature office. But it is an office that is surrounded by golden leaves and the breathing space we need to write our next chapter.

The main star of this next chapter is you. We want to make everything that you loved in our store still be available to you. It’s both exhilarating and scary. We’ve spent 16 years running a bricks-and-mortar shop while dabbling in online sales on the side. Now we are flipping this around, putting everything from Aida to Zips into our web shop, learning a million new things about running an online business along the way. We’re having discussions about post office runs, competitive prices, and the most effective marketing.

At the same time, we are still strong supporters of buying locally. Bunyip Craft will pop up in Exeter all throughout the festive season. We’ll also organise an easy pick-up option for our local customers to save on postage costs: shop online, and we will bring your treasures to our market stalls for you to collect.

Come and see us at the following markets:
