COMPETITION TIME!

Top 3 Dunedin Businesses making it VERY easy to support local this lockdown:

Designs by default
Style up your home with some trendy, Dunedin focused home decor. Started by two Dunedin mums during lockdown, what's not to love.

The Daily Coffee Co
You have to keep your fluids up during a pandemic, and coffee keeps us going until it's time to drink wine.

ArtisanPantry
Lockdown means so much cooking and you get over that fast. Treat yourself, have the night off and order in, and damn that lasagna looks good.

You know the drill team. A $50 voucher to one of these great local businesses is up for grabs. All you have to do is tag someone who needs a break this lockdown. Make sure you follow my page and you’re in the draw.

The Newmarket by iconic Kiwi brand Moana Road.

https://designsbydefault.com/shop/p/the-newmarket-bag

A bag should connect with its owner and this will certainly oblige.

Ultra modern design with Moana Road signature flair.

3 zipped bags intertwine into a single entity. Each made from black faux leather garnished with a golden zip fastener.

The inside each open to reveal a black and white lined inner.

What's hot? Each bag disconnects. Take all on your fancy outing or play it cool with 1 or maybe 2.

The largest compartment can comfortably hold all your necessities. The smallest, a coin pouch or lipstick, is neat and nimble.

The bags lock securely with golden clips.

2 straps are provided. A rugged canvas strap that adding texture and layers, but also a chic and minimal faux leather strap. The latter combines subtly with the middle bag for a perfect 'girls night out' sidepiece.

Nothing but unique. This is your next must have accessory.

Largest Bag 22cmx13cm

Middle Size Bag19cmx11cm

Coin Pouch 9cmx9cm
