Starting to feel like we can think about plans and events for summer? A little bit warmer.. obligatory NYE 2022 plans starting to be discussed.. everyone talking about the new Pals flavour?
We have decided it was the right time to add our new collection just in time for summer - and our four new Anklets do not disappoint. With something to suit everyone, a little bit of Hout & Co jewellery sitting above your heels, you will be struggling even more to keep the boys (or girls, it's 2021) looking into your eyes!
On top of that, in the last fortnight we also opened our Kawau Chain on our shop for purchase, and before we managed to get our posts out the next morning (yes, even we try and sleep for an hour a day), some keen customers had bought our entire stock! Not to worry, our new stock is winging its way to us as we write.
Our Lockdown Sale, going since NZ was suddenly in Lockdown again in August, continues through till October 31. Now is a great time to get your early Christmas Presents organised while our sale is in full swing! More on Christmas Presents below... We have also recently partnered with Afterpay, allowing our customers some more freedom of choice on how they pay, which is fantastic benefit to you.
In some Hout & Co Health Advice - We hope that everyone has checked their car boots recently, seems to be a trend of people unexpectedly being carried out of the Auckland boundary without their or the drivers knowledge. Please, don't go sleeping in car boots in lockdown!
Another stunning piece we have been working on for quite some time is the Motuihe Chain (scroll down for photos). At Hout & Co we have a strong attachment to the Hauraki Gulf and the coastline around there, and you will have, we are sure, noticed the names all relating to that area. Our favourite spot is the beautiful Island Paradise of Motuihe, and we saved the name for a truly special piece. What's more?! We will be including this piece in our Gift Boxes, due to be released in November just in time for Christmas.
This little gift box for Christmas release has some very exciting pieces. We cannot wait to show you our limited edition Christmas Pōhutukawa inspired Earrings...
We are just so excited in what we are doing - getting our waterproof pieces to you in time for all your summer plans. We have peace of mind knowing that our Hout & Co Gold Plating is, on average, up to 10 times thicker than standard Gold Plating. We use a vacuum coating that ensures that our pieces will stay bright and protected all summer long, no matter how many Sunday afternoon beach trips, late night spa dates or "picnics" you attend this summer.
We really appreciate your support through this tough time to be a small business in New Zealand, and we hope to come out of this stronger than before. Thank you.
Hope you are having a stunning week.
~ The team at Hout & Co
*Our shipping partner, New Zealand Post, have been inundated with parcels this lockdown, and parcels were being picked up at the rate of one parcel every 4 seconds across New Zealand. This has lead to some minor delays in our parcels being delivered, from the expected next day delivery NZ wide, out to five days while New Zealand Post work through this long surge. We do have guarantees that once levels start to drop, normal next-day-delivery will resume.
