A new service from June 2018 from Kelly & WindsorThere are an increasing number of Chinese visitors to Australian who
want to buy high quality Australian made products and take them back to
China for themselves or family members.
This is a relatively easy task with smaller low value items such as
souvenirs, cosmetics and health products. If on the other hand you wish

OptiFill, a clever pillow filling system by Kelly & WindsorMost
pillows are usually filled by blowing loose filling fibres into the
pillow case with compressed air. This filling system is quite good at
filling the corners but often the fibre is uneven inside with the pillow tending to unevenly clump together interrupting a restful night’s
alternative pillow filling system is by inserting a carded wad of

Quilt Warmth Ratings: Which type and style of quilt is best for you?Unfortunately,
there is no universal measure of a quilt's warmth or its thermal

The good news, for us, is that we had three sell out TVSN shopping shows in May and June 2014 which was the first time we have promoted the alpaca underblankets through tv shopping. I must admit that I was slightly hesitant about promoting a high end exclusive alpaca underblanket on tv, but I was sure wrong. All of our stock sold out in minutes!
