Out and about with koolaman at the Henty Machinery Field Days

It’s hard to believe 12 months have passed since we were last at the Henty Machinery Field Days. Last year there were hundreds of exhibitors and what a delight it was for koolaman designs to be part of such a well organised event. This year the Henty Machinery Field Days promise to be equally as spectacular with over 800 exhibitors participating in the three day event.
One of our favourite photos! Unfortunately the kids aren't on their way to the Henty Field Days... but we are.

The team at the koolaman hub has been in over drive this week. We have been carefully selecting and polishing the entire koolaman collection to ensure our pop up shop at Henty is fully stocked. New to Henty will be a wide range of products from the HIDE COLLECTION. We suspect these funky personalised leather cuffs complete with silver and now 9ct gold hand stamped pendants will be a hit. 

When people ask what our favourite koolaman designs product is, not surprisingly, we are unable to provide a simple answer. It’s similar to asking parents if they have a favourite child. Like any parent, you love your children equally, but they have different characteristics which make them special and set them apart. All the koolaman pieces are so special to us and we totally understand just how difficult it is to choose a piece from our very comprehensive online store. So if ever you have an opportunity, to touch and try on our pieces in the flesh when we exhibit, it is certainly worth your while. Our pop up shop staff would love to share their expertise to make sure your decision is the correct decision.

What are you doing next week? If you live around the Southern NSW and Northern Victoria districts, come and visit our pop-up shop at Henty to say hello, sample our designs and speak to the experienced members (Stacey and our Mum, Marlene) of our team about your choice.

If you visit us at Henty, be sure to enter our September pop-up shop promotion and you could be in the running for a hand stamped sterling silver LIESEL bangle personalised just for you. Our pop up shop will be located in the shopping arcarde. 

Lastly, don't forget to enter our September Spring Promotion.  Simply click on the link  to enter and you could be in the running to win your very own stunning Penny Pendant and 50cm large ball chain

Spring Photo Promotion - Win a Penny Pendant & Chain

Wow, hasn’t this year just whizzed by?  It is spring time and what a busy season this promises to be.  The koolaman hub has been abuzz with activity and with Fathers Day done and dusted, it is now time to switch focus to all things Spring. 
At koolaman when we think of Spring so many happy images, thoughts, smells and sounds flood the mind.  The sight of gardens blooming, that gentle waft of flower scent and the feel of the warm spring sun on your face on a lazy Saturday morning is undeniably satisfying.  There is the smell of freshly cut grass on weekends, as enthusiasm slowly crawls back to tackle the garden after the cold months.  Bright colours follow the dull greys, browns and blacks of winter truly signifying Spring is in the air.  There are distant sounds of children’s laughter and shrieks of joy as parks and playgrounds take on a new lease of life after months of parents hibernating.
Events are also high on the agenda for koolaman during the spring season.  Spring Racing Carnivals start to gain momentum and who can deny the fun to be had a great country race.  It is also footy finals time and for most, whether you are mad keen follower of the game or not, you can’t help but get swept up in the hype surrounding us during this time of year.  
All the elements are right at this time of year for a good old fashioned party.  Whether a wedding or birthday celebration, you can’t help but notice weekends quickly fill up during Spring. Party mode usually means new clothes, new shoes and new accessories.   Given this, it is a perfect opportunity to polish up your koolaman jewellery or visit our online store and choose something special to make you the talk of the party.
Spring is certainly our favourite season.  To celebrate this we are running a September Spring giveaway. For a chance to win a hand stamped PENNY pendant and be a stand out this Spring, we want you to share our love of Spring.  Simply upload a picture to our Facebook page of yourself or somebody you know out and about wearing koolaman designs in Spring and name the piece.  For instance you may post a beautiful photo of yourself wearing koolaman designs with a spectacular sunset in the background or perhaps a photo at a Spring wedding.  Whatever you choose to upload, be sure to make it creative and to name the koolaman piece in the picture.   
Login with Facebook below to view full details and to enter our promotion for your chance to win our stunning Penny Pendant and 50cm large ball chain (valued at $295).  Or head over to our facebook page to enter.

Spring at the Station

At Koolaman Station Spring means shearing.  Preparations are well and truly underway for the shearing season, which should take the best part of two weeks during September.  Stay tuned for a Super Special September Shearing blog, here are some shearing images, from Life down on the farm, a few years ago. Fortunately, we have had some winter rain and crops are growing.  One never tires to see the dusty dry paddocks at Koolaman sprouting new life as crops of wheat and barley force their way out of the soil searching for Spring sunshine. 
Congratulations to Kristy Russell from near Tamworth who was the winner of our August pop-up-shop promotion.  Kristy visited us at AgQuip in Gunnedah.  Koolaman Designs has a busy schedule this month with pop-up-shops in Melbourne, Bendigo and Henty. Please be sure to come and visit us and enter our pop-up-shop promotion, which will be running for the month of September.  Entry is simple and you could be in the running for a hand stamped sterling silver LIESEL bangle personalised just for you.  
At koolaman designs, we are always looking for new ideas and inspiration.   So here’s a sneak peak of something coming soon to our Hide Collection.  We think this is a funky way to wear our classic GUS pendant as worn with the Silver Seeds OLIVIA Necklace.  Stay tuned to future blogs for availability and more details.
