What a busy year its been so far. We are in the throws of designing our next Hello Polly Home Collection, which is looking wonderful!
We are also about to take a very well deserved studio break. You may have noticed that we didnt close at all over the 2014/2105 Christmas, New Year period, but instead, have decided to take a weeks break from the studio in the first week of March. We have thought long and hard about closing the studio for a week, but we are off to New Zealand to celebrate our wonderful team member, Helens wedding, so we just couldnt say no!
So ..... in short, we will be taking on orders throughout the first week of March, however, no orders will be dispatched until we return on March the 9th. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
We promise that after dusting off our dancing shoes and having a much needed break, that we will return with fresh new ideas and a whole lot of energy!!
Thanks again, we really do have the best customers around, we know its cheesy to say, but we couldnt do this without you. xxx
If youre a 80s kid like us, or simply love 80s teen movies, then this mash up is for you!
Happy Friday xxx
Here is our latest edition of whats been happening (via our instagram) and boy, what a great start to 2015 we have had already!
We visited the David Shrigley exhibition at the NGV, which if you havent visited yet, you really need too, its a total standout! Theres been lots of time spent at the beach, which is always good for the soul; watching early morning sunrises; fun with the kids; lots of cold icey treats; as well as a quick impromptu visit to New Zealand which as you can imagine, never disappoints.
We are also well underway with designing our next Hello Polly Home collection! Youll see more sneak peaks on that soon, but as always, we are super excited to be in the thick of designing and sampling. Sarah has been painting as a starting point for this new collection which you can see in one of the pics above. You can check out her original work over here.
2015, so far youve shaped up to be pretty good!
There is always so much more going on behind the scenes, so jump on over to our instagram to have a looksee.
I know, its an obvious choice, but jewellery really is a great gift for that wonderful lady in your life! If your man needs a bit of push in this department, forward links of pieces you like! Trust me, he will thank you for this!
Guys love a bit of Valentines Day gift action too, so instead of heading straight to the bottle store this year, how about consider something a little more lasting. These two prints are pretty darn perfect!
As 2014 comes to a close, we cant help but get all gooey about the wonderful support we have received this year.
To all the wondeful artists and designers we work with; you are guys ROCK! Without you, our shop would be ... well... rather bland. We get all excited about new products you create, the immense talent that spills from all of you, and love being their with you for the ride!
Our amazing customers; without your continued support, we really wouldnt still be here!! You guys are awesome! Its a simple as that.
And last, but not least, our friends and families. You guys know who you are and your unwavering support (and helpful hands) never go unnoticed. We promise next year we will try and bake more thank you cakes!
What a great 2014 we have had! 2015, we have some pretty great ideas up our sleeves, so I hope you are ready for us!
Sarah, Helen and Team
We may seem a ltitle absent at the moment, but rest assured, the shop is still open and we are still busy posting orders. Inbetween this, we are taking some time out to fit in some summer holiday fun, which usually includes lots of swimming, ice creams and lazying in the sun. Happy Holidays!!!

We are in full prep mode for this years Big Design Market, which is set to open in just a couple of weeks. To say this event is BIG is an understatement. Its the biggest market of its kind in Australia, which brings together the best of independent Australian and International design over 3 huge days. Set in the iconic Royal Exhibition Buildings in the heart of Melbourne, you will find over 200 stalls set up ready for you to get that Christmas shopping started and finished, as well as some great food, drink and workshops!
We cant wait to set up shop, and this year, we have an even bigger stall than usual. We will be there with our whole Hello Polly Home range too! Lock Dec 5th, 6th and 7th in your diary everyone, its going to be so much fun!
