Gifts Galore to Choose From


Christmas gift shopping just got easier with the So They Can Charity Pop Up shop in Northbridge. It's only here for a short time, therefore it's important to get in before December 7th.

Volunteers will help you discover a variety of beautiful and unusual things, many handmade either by local artisans, or Kenyan women using traditional skills passed down from their grandmothers.

Your choices are endless and include ceramics by local artisans and Artworks by local artists; handmade pure Mongolian cashmere pashminas where every piece is unique; handwoven sisal baskets made from locally harvested sisal and coloured with natural plant dyes; candles, beach towels and jewellery, as well as Christmas decorations. There are also hand-blended teas, made in small batches using organic ingredients, to name a few.

Many items have been donated, whilst others are donating 100% of their profits.

Your luckiest purchase at only $10 a raffle ticket could be a beautiful, fully decorated and lit Christmas tree worth $1,000 delivered to your home in early December!

Not only does this Pop Up Shop aim to raise funds to cover the cost of rainwater harvesting and to build two rainwater tanks in two Kenyan schools, this initiative also supports sustainable sources and Fair Trade practices. Just purchasing any Bibi&Me Sisal basket helps play a part in generating income and helping more than 16,500 women and children break the poverty cycle through the education and empowerment programs run by So They Can, a not-for-profit charity founded 10 years ago in Northbridge by two local mums.
