Being the first year in our new larger location (347 Canterbury Road, Surrey Hills), during the buying Chevron Paper Straws  season we increased stock levels by about 40%. All this additional stock was due to arrive over 2 weeks before we opened, however, due to shipping delays it arrived exactly one week prior to the opening.
How I wish I had taken photos each day as the chaos slowly disappeared during this week, and a shop was created. The entire team was working extremely long hours and by Thursday afternoon, the day before our scheduled opening, the job was done.


The main point is, we made it, and we are delighted with our Melbourne Christmas shop for 2013.
The Drinking Straws store is now open Monday – Saturday, 9am – 5pm. From October it will be open 7 days a week.
I visited this store with a friend 10 years ago when she was living in Chicago and we took a little road trip up to Osh Kosh and thought I would check it out again for the road trip.
So do miniblinds. And some cosmetic products. And extension cords. And computer cords. And batteries. And the power cords of essentially every single item of electrically powered equipment in your home. And even the soil in your lawn.
And that “lead-free” plumbing that delivers drinking water to your tap? The same plumbing that conforms to modern legal requirements for lead reduction? It may contain as much as 8% lead.
Lead is a dangerous element. It can cause significant health problems. And multiple sources abound in the home. Yet great progress has been made in reducing our exposure to lead.
According to the EPA, the lead levels measured in the blood of children have plummeted by 93% in roughly the last thirty years. And a recent Canadian study showed that blood lead levels have declined by 11% just since 2009.
But in spite of the progress that’s been made in reducing our exposure, it’s still important to be mindful of the risks of lead exposure. It’s also important to take appropriate precautions to help minimize exposure to lead.
Even the dust in your home – against which you wage a never-ending battle with sweeper, swiffer duster, and vacuum – likely contains printed straw  . All of these common, everyday household items can contain lead, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Should you be concerned about the lead in your Christmas lights? Of course you should. Just as you should be concerned about all of those other sources of lead in your home.
But it should be a measured concern. There’s no need to stop enjoying your Christmas lights. Just as there’s no need to stop drinking water, trash your miniblinds, or discard every piece of electrical equipment that you own.


Kristmas Kringle’s exterior is traditional German Party favor style.  Inside there are two levels with a German village scene on the upper level.  What I like about this store is the use of lots of theme Christmas trees scattered around to give you a bit of inspiration.  They also had a number of collectible lines including Mark Roberts and Department 56.The trace amounts of lead found in Christmas light cords are used to help prevent cracking of the insulation that protects electrical wires. And according to the American Cancer Society, the “lead found in cords is not powdered, so users are not at risk of inhaling it.”
Why is that significant?
Because lead ingestion occurs mostly through the mouth and through the breathing of contaminated air. So christmas gift  light cords do not pose a significant threat for causing lead ingestion through the air, one of the two methods of lead ingestion.
But handling Christmas light cords – or any other electrical cords for that matter – can leave a trace of lead residue on the skin. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, lead is not absorbed through the skin. So the primary risk of absorbing lead after handling Christmas lights is through eating after handling the lights. And that’s a risk that’s easily avoided.
That’s why the American Cancer Society recommends simply washing your hands after handling  craft paper bag , or any other type of cord for that matter, to avoid ingesting any lead that may have rubbed off on your hands. Also avoid eating or feeding children during the process of stringing holiday lights, or while otherwise handling power cords.Mistletoe contains viscotoxins which can affect the pulse, cause gastrointestinal problems, and poison pets. Christmas candles cause many house fires and even loss of life each holiday season, and natural Christmas trees also pose a significant fire risk. Your eggnog is jam-packed with potentially health-threatening cholesterol.
Does that mean that you should never again experience the thrill of encountering that certain someone under the mistletoe? Does it mean that your family can never again experience the joyful solemnity of a Christmas Eve candlelight vigil? Does it mean no more Christmas trees, or cheery cups of eggnog lifted in a holiday toast?
 It has a relaxed atmosphere and party wedding supplies  pretty displays with lots of theme trees to use as inspiration.Enjoy a few photos of Kristmas Kringle.This is our main display room on Friday morning 30th August.
