We're helping spread the word about a fundraising lunch next week - it's a little 'out of town' for most, but you don't have to attend; you can visit the host page to donate and every dollar really helps towards the fundraising target! All money 'collected' goes straight to the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation to help fund the support, education and research that they undertake. Thanks for your help!
Our first 50 customers to spend $55 or more on the gorgeous range of Illumina Soy Candles and accessories at The Collectors will also receive an Illumina Celebration candle (valued at $29.95) FREE.

The Play Pouch is an Australian design (we have to get over that, these things are that good!) now available in NZ. Inspired by the sheet-and-string storage system of yesteryear, the play pouch flattens out to a circular canvas mat for playtime, then you can draw the string, with the toys in it, to make a great-looking, duffle-style bag for storage or travel. No more picking tiny toys up one by one!
With two different sizes (60cm Mini Pouch and 140cm Play Pouch or Printed Play Pouch) and a range of design and colour options, the Play Pouch combines the practicality of yesteryear with robust modern materials and good-looking style. Spread it out for playtime (finally, a way to get ALL THOSE LITTLE BIT OF LEGO under control!) then play and pack away. Smart. Simple. Stylish. Storage. We like.
Did you find the perfect gift for Mother's Day then stalled on what to write in the card without saying something that's been said A MILLION times before? Getting the gift (from thecollectors.co.nz of course!) is one thing... the gab to go with it for a special person and occasion is something else.

In most quarries, up to 80% of all soapstone mined is deemed waste and these blocks of stone are left behind. From an environmental angle these blocks are turning what was once a beautiful natural environment into a mess.
Steven Chavez and Justin English have set out to clean up the disastrous quarries worldwide and find a purpose for the discarded soapstone. They turned to the stone’s natural properties which is one of the most effective for conducting and retaining temperature.
This is how SPARQ home was born.
We have a select range of wonderful recycled soapstone products from SPARQ, perfect for entertaining and the good old Kiwi BBQ!
My personal favourite is the Whiskey Rocks set - rock cubes that chill your drink without diluting it...genius.
But when you put your mind to it the options are endless - Ice cold Vodka, Guacamole that stays chilled, Gravy that stays warm, chilled platters... need we say more.
Thank you SPARQ .
