Reader Question: Organising products for those of us in Australia?

ampersand magnets

Since this blog has a worldwide audience, I try to include products from as many places as I can. But I know that the majority of the products I list come from the USA or the U.K. - so here's a post focused specifically on products that my Australian readers can find more easily.

Let's start small, and then move on to larger items. Little Jane St has ceramic magnets on 12 different designs. I'm partial to the ampersand, myself, but I know people who would probably go for the cupcakes. [via Bloesem]

Keep Calm and Carry On magnets

Intrigued by all the Keep Calm and Carry On products? You can get these magnets (and magnets with many other designs) from Iszle.


And The Rabbit and The Duck is one more place to get some magnets. Update on Sept. 6, 2010: It seems this Etsy shop no longer sells magnets.

gint paper clip, with fairy

Organisers tend to prefer staples to paper clips, but I can see uses for this giant paper clip - and besides, it's darling. (Could the fairy be holding the Organising Magic Wand that we all wish existed?)

metal bookends, silver

Stepping up in size, we come to these lovely bookends, sold by Reader's Niche. They come in three different colors.

fabric basket with monkeys

Sasha Sews has fabric baskets and other organising items.

magazine rack from Australia

Ute Australian Design has a number of storage products, including this magazine rack; another neat product is the CD storage unit. [vie Indie art and design]

VD rack holds 168 DVDs

And moving on to larger items, Daire Timber Products provides "100% Australian made solid timber" CD and DVD racks of various sizes. It's a family-owned and operated business, too.

wood wine rack

Wildwood Designs makes a range of furniture, including bookcases and related items, such as this wine rack.


And finally, Bugendore Wood Works Gallery has some lovely cabinets from various furniture makers.

Small Town Mamma, I'm so glad you like my blog!

And Carley, I'm glad you like the selection. There's some good stuff coming out of Australia, even if it takes some searching to find it!
