On Saturday the 5th of October, we hosted another wonderful Charity Event here at Trader Trove! With the help of our rack sale holders and raffle ticket purchasers we were able to raise a combined total of $1600. We are so overwhelmed and grateful for everyones generous donations, and also for the amazing brands who gifted prizes to our raffle. All proceeds have been donated equally between two non profit organisations who have recently been inundated with work due to the local bushfires, Wildcare & GIVIT.
The delicious coffee, juices and nibbles available on the day, were all thanks to the legends Darvin & Michael from Wavy Bone.
Wild Search Australia was founded in 2015 by Wildlife Ecologist, Environmental Conservationist and Nature Tour Guide, Caitlin Weatherstone. Caitlin grew up locally in the Northern Rivers of NSW and has extensive knowledge of local flora and fauna, as well as over 12 years experience in nature tour guiding, bushwalking, working with animals & children, hosting events, environmental conservation, campaigning and wildlife/ecological sciences.
What moved you to start Wild Search? and how would you describe what you do?
I get to see first hand the negative impact humans are having on the planet such as plastics, land clearing, introduced species and loss of biodiversity. I started my business as a means to connect people back to nature, for their general wellbeing as well as for the wellbeing of the planet. There's a great quote by Baba Dioum that "we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand and we will understand only what we are taught". I do this in two ways through Wild Search Australia; I facilitate nature connection and rewilding workshops and I also hand make and sell natural body products with a focus on Australian grown and native ingredients.
We have your Toothpowder and deodorant in store and love that they are in reusable or biodegradable packaging, why is this important to you?
It was really important, actually vital, for me to create products that wouldn't have a negative impact on the planet! It is my goal that they would, in fact, have a positive impact through awareness and education of natural, local Australian body products. I didn't want to create more 'stuff' in the world. There are two types of packaging used; biodegradable cardboard push-up sticks for lip balm and deodorant and recyclable/ reusable glass jars with aluminium lids for tooth powder, body scrub, deodorant and body balm. Businesses should all be responsible for their products 'end of life'!
What have you found challenging on your plastic free journey in life and business? and how have you found solutions?
For my business, it was actually very easy, although a lot of research, to be completely plastic-free. The only thing that's tricky is when my suppliers forget and accidentally send their packages with plastic fill or bubble wrap to me. I have to politely let them know that there are alternatives available now! I hold on to all the plastic I've accumulated and I'll recycle or reuse it down the track. Personally, I am definitely not perfect but I do sacrifice a lot of luxuries just because they're in plastic. Once you've committed to having a largely single-use plastic free lifestyle, your brain just instantly says 'no' to a lot of things - like pre-packaged food and sweets - and it changes the way you view everything you buy. I'm lucky to live in Byron Bay where there are a lot of alternatives out there, like bulk food stores, but it is difficult when I travel for work or am hiking in a remote place. You just have to be really prepared! And at the end of the day, if the only food to eat is wrapped in plastic and from a big supermarket chain, then I just eat it and don't beat myself up about it. That's important too, to realise that you do your best and that's all you can do; be kind to yourself in the process!
Explain "rewilding" and the intention behind it?
Rewilding was originally a term used to describe 'rewilding' large tracts of landscape that had been cleared or had lost biodiversity. For example, introducing native predators like quolls back into ecosystems in Australia that they became extinct from is rewilding that ecosystem. Rewilding can also be used in terms of 'rewilding' the human psyche, or inner landscape. Getting back to our roots and remembering that we too are animals. We're intricately connected to other animals, plants, fungi, the climate, water, the moon, the ocean, Earth's soil and microorganisms etc. Modern humans have largely been removed from nature and natural systems, which has caused so many problems in our societies including mental health and children's development, to name just a few. The remedy for this is to spend as much time in nature as possible - walk barefoot, listen to birds, go to the beach, learn traditional skills using natural materials, be self sufficient and grow your own food, work outdoors and take quality time out from your phone and other tech.
You are doing a workshop here at Trader Trove on the 5th tell us a little more about Wild Search workshops and what to expect?
Yes, very excited about this one! I'm running a DIY Body Products Basics Workshop from 10am - 12pm. In this one, we'll chat about the modern beauty industry and why it's so great for your body and the planet to switch to sustainable and ethical products! And it's very easy to make your own at home with basic ingredients; I'll teach you how. We'll make 6 different products from tooth powder to deodorant and body scrub (and more) which you can all take home with you. I will also gift you a transcript of the workshop, including the recipes! This Workshop is great for adults as well as accompanied children over 12 years old.
We love working with such amazing brands and are so proud to have your products here in store, whats in the plans for the future of Wild Search?
I am so happy to be a part of the Trader Trove family! I have a big focus on local communities in the Northern NSW and SE Queensland region and would love to expand my range of nature connection workshops and body products using different Australian native plants that are local to our region. I'm also available to run custom workshops for small groups (10-30 people) including for Hens Parties, Women's Circles, Teen & Children groups, Students and Corporate groups. I just really want to keep spreading the message of how nature is so important for all of us! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Sadly Queensland and much of Northern NSW has recently been devastated by bushfires affecting the homes of many including our precious native fauna. With such heartache and loss, it has been absolutely beautiful to witness the kindness and generosity of those pulling together not only in the local community but Australia wide.
In the past fews months over 190 registered as evacuees staying with friends, family and those in the local area that have opened there homes. Free fuel, meals and animal feed are among the supplies donated to those affected including the tireless volunteer fire fighters working in the Gold Coast hinterland, further west and south into Northern NSW.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Whether you give a little or allot, anything counts in times like this!

Wildcare Australia Inc is situated in South-East Queensland. Each year, volunteers rescue and care for some 5,000 sick, injured, orphaned and displaced native animals with the goal of returning them to the wild. Wildcare is a 100% volunteer based organisation and they provide training to our volunteers in all aspects of wildlife rehabilitation. They also aim to raise public awareness of Australia's unique wildlife and its diverse habitat requirements through community talks and education programmes.
Wildcare Australia Inc. Has also commenced a Nest Box Drive to raise money for possum boxes, glider boxes and bird boxes to replace the homes they have lost in the Gold Coast Hinterland bushfires. Thousands of wildlife has been displaced due to the disaster that unfolded just under 2 weeks ago. These animals will be homeless (some 300 species utilise tree hollows as their home) and Wildcare wish to provide residents with nest boxes that they can place in the trees around their properties for the displaced wildlife.

Last week we spoke to the gorgeous Annie Tarasova & asked her a few questions about her love of the universe, what inspires her and how her journey through DreamyMoons began.
1. We know you started a Health Science / Naturopathy degree at University, what was it that made you change direction? Was there a lightbulb moment for you? A little push from the Universe? I have always been a creative person, but the reason why I went to study my second passion rather than my first, was my fear of competition in the art and design field. However, after 2 years of studying, I felt that I was losing touch with my creative side. Something was missing. Whilst still at University, I put up some of my art prints for sale on Etsy, purely to motivate me to create. I thought to myself: if people like my art, then I will actually have motivation and a bigger purpose to paint again. After just a few months, my business took off and I found myself spending more time painting than studying. I realised I was already doing what I always dreamed of. That is when I decided to take a break from my studies, and then my plans changed from taking a break to officially quitting and pursuing my number one passion - art.
2. Have you always had a knack for painting, drawing and creating?
Yes, funnily enough, when I was 4-8 years old my main hobby was making my own little books - I would make up stories and illustrate them and staple the pages together. I always had a vivid imagination and a strong urge to create from scratch. Now when I create I feel a strong connection with my inner child. I am grateful for my Mum for encouraging creativity in my early years.
3. When did your love for the Universe begin?
I grew up in the Russian country side, and that is where I believe my love for the Universe began. I spent my summers running around barefoot, making magical potions from dew drops and rose petals, reading endless fairytale books and collecting wild blueberries in lush forests. At the time I didn’t realise how powerful my connection to nature was. Now that I look back on this time I realise it was very special. We didn’t have phones or internet there, I just had my bike, my imagination and beautiful forests to explore.
4. How do you keep in a creative headspace?
Thankfully for me it is quite easy to get in my creative flow, as I constantly have new ideas running through my mind that I want to bring to life. However, what definitely helps is being on my own when I create, listening to calm slow music and going for walks in nature.
5. What inspires you most?
The moon, nature, cosmos, our minds and the way each human is connected to the world around it - to the Universe.
6. How do you cope with such a large following? It must be so cool knowing that your artwork has reached, and touched so many lives.
It is definitely amazing knowing that so many souls around the world are enjoying what I create. It's uplifting, inspiring and very motivating. It used to slightly overwhelm me knowing that I am expected to constantly put up content on social media whilst also working on other projects behind the scenes until I’m ready to share them (such as books), however I now learned to transform that feeling into motivation and to freely express myself and my journey on social media.
We sell some of your gorgeous Affirmation Cards here at Trader Trove.. what is your favourite Affirmation?
The Affirmation Card Deck is definitely one of my favourite projects to date. My favourite affirmation is: "I am a vibrational match of all that I desire”.
8. What is your fave work you've ever created and why?
It always changes, but at the moment it’s my Manifest Book - a fully handwritten and illustrated guide to manifestation. I’ve always dreamed of creating something fully handwritten and hand painted, that almost feels like a scrapbook and has a personal feel to it. I think I love it so much because it also reminds me of the books I used to make in my childhood.
9. Talk us through one of your New Moon Rituals?
New Moon is all about setting intentions. My favourite thing to do on a New Moon is to meditate and journal. I create a comfortable, calm space, light some incense, and allow myself to be fully present. Through meditation, I empty my mind, open my heart and get clear on what I want to achieve. I figure out what my goals are and what intention I need to set. After meditation I open up my notebook and write all that comes to mind. After I create a to-do list and set some plans and goals for the next few weeks.
10. Can you tell us about anything new and exciting that you're currently working on?
Yes - I recently released a 2020 Year of Growth planner which I am very excited about, and now working on 2020 lunar calendars and a range of blank notebooks to release before the year ends.

Have you ever wondered how we find and choose our gorgeous rugs here at Trader Trove? Well... we've written a little blog that covers everything! At TT we generally have a selection of Beni Mguilds, Beni Ourains, Kilims, Oushak rugs, & Boucherittes, also known as rag rugs! So we thought we'd give you a little insight as to what the difference is between each kind of rug and more!
"Knowing the origin and story behind the items we choose to wear and fill our homes with adds another level of connection and appreciation."In the beginning Avalon (founder of TT) reached out to a few different suppliers in the regions of Turkey & Morocco. "I've visited both of these countries through my travels and knew the feeling I had when I was there and wanted to bring that dreamy feeling of adventure, culture, and curiosity to the space."After taking a few risks and trying a few different suppliers. "I now use one main supplier in Morocco who knows my taste. Their team work directly with the Atlas tribes and other women in and near Marrakech. Producing beautiful new rugs and sourcing rare and vintage one offs."
When procuring these textile gems, "I operate most of the time from a 'feeling' I see the photos and immediately know which ones will fit, as each piece stirs something inside of me. (I'm not always on point though ha ha)".
Beni M'Guild Rugs: For the Berber of the Beni tribes who made them, they were more functional in winter months serving as one of the main forms of warmth and insulation in their homes. The Beni M'guild region in the western Middle Atlas of Morocco can be quite harsh in the winters months. Woven by the women on a vertical loom they tend to have simple geometric designs running down or across the carpet with a background of red, brown, white or sometimes blue.
Beni Ourain Rugs: The neutral tones and elegant, stripped-down geometry of Beni Ourain rugsmakes them one of the most loved. There are endless contemporary spinoffs of the style made known by the Beni Ourain, a network of nearly two-dozen individual tribes in the Middle Atlas region. “Woven from undyed, natural wool, the field is largely cream and the decoration is picked out in delicate lines of a henna-like brown,” F.J. Hakimiansays of the stylish textiles, whose darker-toned lines are traditionally woven with undyed wool from black sheep.
Turkish Kilim Rugs: Kilim, a word of Turkish origin, denotes a flatwoven and pileless textile, whose many variations share a common heritage and are practiced all across Turkey, the Balkans and throughout the Arab world. Because the resulting weave is lightweight, these rugs are well adapted for use in the hot summer months and are happily embraced by Moroccan tribal weavers.
Oushak Rugs: Ushak (Oushak) are known for the silky, luminous wool they work with. The dyes tend towards: cinnamons, terracotta tints, gold, blues, greens, ivory, saffron and grays. Antique Oushak carpets tend to be coarsely woven on a wool foundation with a wool pile, and are distinctive in both pattern and color palette. The designs of Oushak rugs and carpets are typically based on geometric motives with central medallion drawings, smaller all-over medallions or scattered sprays of vine scroll and palmettes. They are also famed for the grand, monumental scale of designs. Today, Oushak rugs are highly desirable and decorative for elegant room settings.
Boucherite: Who would guess such a fun-looking carpet was the result of serious social and economic changes? Boucherouite (from the Arabic bu sherwit, meaning “a piece torn from pre-used clothing”) emerged along with the transition from nomadic herding to modern forms of employment, which has made wool harder to come by. Initiated in the Central Plains by the Beni Mellal and Boujad, eventually this practice gained acceptance by even the most remote tribes in the Middle and High Atlas regions.
"I believe the energy of a space and how you feel when you are part of it is equally as important as how it looks to the eye. Creation is human expression and the rugs we stock in Trader Trove are the epitome of this process and truly are works of art."
Introducing the lovely Anaïs and Wilder Alchemy to the Trader Tribe! Anaïs botanical perfumed oils are chemical free and smell absolutely heavenly. We would love to hear a little about you and the intention behind Wilder Alchemy?
My name is Anaïs, I grew up in the dreamy Currumbin Valley and love coming home after travelling & living elsewhere. I have always had a deep affinity for nature, for flowers, for the wilderness and pretty much all things magical! I am quite a watery woman, feeling through life, which definitely has its moments but allows me to connect with some incredible beings - like all of you in the Trader Community ☺.
The idea for Wilder came to me during meditation almost three years ago when I was living in a special place called Avalon! I meditated on a summer of falling in love I wanted to encapsulate everything that experience felt like to me, from which Tallo was birthed.
Each blend has been channelled, created to captivate the senses and delicately unite the beauty of botanicals with the wild-hearted. For me it exudes the different archetypes we possess within. Wilder has travelled across the sea with me, through ups and downs & is really an expression of the woman I am today. I wanted to grow Wilder… not Tamer..
What is your creative process and inspiration?
Creativity for me comes from the space of feeling. I find that experiencing things that evoke something within me, wether its music or feeling the first light of the morning sun on my face, the scent of swollen jasmine in full bloom, that’s when I find inspiration. Some days (like all of us) the to do list feels overwhelming, though I’m learning to remember and trust everything happens in divine timing. When I try to force things it just doesn’t feel good in anyway and I generally find myself procrastinating in analysis paralysis ha ha! It’s in flow that the pings come, the drive to create, and the happiness that sprouts tingles of excitement all through my matter!
Oh and most of all the SUN!!!! Everybody loves the sunshine.
It took me 5 months to create the four scents in the Wilder Alchemy range. Each scent has been blended when the moon is full and left to marry to synergise infused with love, quartz crystal and intention to captivate the alchemy of scent. I do everything by hand so a lot of love and intention is poured into each bottle. It’s such a heart-warming experience when someone glides a scent on and share that they can feel the love inside!
Why is creating an organic, vegan and ethical product important to you?
We spend so much time and money investing on what we put inside our bodies its equally if not more important to be incredibly mindful of what we’re putting on our beautiful bodies. Our skin is the largest organ; whatever we are coming into contact with is being absorbed and essentially becoming part of our matter. And I believe in the oneness so creating an all vegan and ethical product was a must, its so wonderful that so many others feel so strongly about this.
Nature holds all the tools for healing, its up to us to use our inherent wisdom to access it.
Is your packaging eco friendly, and recyclable? What should we do once we've finished using a bottle of our favourite scent?
Packaging was a huge part of the process for me and after much time I was able to find a recyclable option which is also aesthetically beautiful. I wanted to create with the help of my best friend whom is an incredible artist a colour scheme that represented the turning of dusk. To me the packaging is pretty enough to stand next to your Wilder bottle for display. It can also alternatively be placed in the recycling bin.
I am in the process of setting up through my website an option to reuse your bottle it can be sent back to be refilled at a discounted rate. Otherwise with removing the glass roller ball the bottle itself can be recycled.
Tell us your most loved blend and why?
(we cannot choose, they are all so lovely)
Aw thank you! Honestly it has varied over time, to begin I was definitely an Evá! To me it embodies the essence of a woman and when I’m feeling like I want to be completely in the sensuality of femininity I adorn it with a beautiful dress and music and it makes me feel the true beauty of all that we are.
Currently in the winter months I’ve been wearing Dahlia… She is the night queen. A potent floral elixir with grounding woody notes - so very warming for the senses as well as lighting up the night. She’s like the exotic night queen and adds a bit of magic to the evening, I’ve had some women buy this for their wedding.
What is on the horizon for you and Wilder Alchemy?
I’ve been working on expanding the range to compliment the olfactory senses. I also have some exciting things to bring forward in the coming months in collaboration with two wonderful like-minded businesses.
I’m also dreaming up future workshops that allow hands on approach to the alchemy of scent. Finally, I’d love to take Wilder overseas.
Period, Rags, Monthlies, Aunt Flow, “Time of the Month” whatever you want to call it, women from as young as 9 start their menstrual cycle. This means that the average woman endures around 456 periods over 38 years, which is roughly 2,280 days or 6.25 years of her life. We all have different feelings attached to this cycle (especially if your a man reading this) but......
Have you ever thought about the money you spend on sanitary items? Or about the impact on our environment?
The Average woman uses 12,000- 16,000 menstrual pads and tampons in her lifetime. In Australia alone 18,000 metric tons of metric waste goes into landfill which takes 500 years to breakdown. Just how much does your period set you back over your lifetime? Taking into account pads, tampons, pain relief, birth control, new underwear and of course chocolate, and we’re guessing it’d be around the $19,000 mark. (think of what you could do with $19k? Holiday to the Maldives anyone?)
If you know better do better hey? Well we are trying! You may have noticed Trader Trove is growing and evolving we are slowly exploring a new vision - which includes working towards reducing our impact on this earth.
We are so excited to be stocking Modibodi - An Australian company, founded in late 2013 by Kristy Chong, MODIBODI, provides women all around the world with access to reusable and sustainable women’s and teen briefs. From periods to sweat, bladder leakage and incontinence. Empowering women to have the confidence to get on with life, whatever their challenge, while also reducing their impact on the environment (by reducing disposable personal hygiene products).
So how does it work? its actually very cool - watch the video below.
Anything new is a little scary! We get it! After using pads and tampons for years that the thought of just letting it all flow seems like crazy talk.
I opened up a conversation with some lovely ladies in our community about ModiBodi Period undies and other alternatives - It was actually so refreshing to discuss menstruation and hear different opinions and candid questions.
With those questions lets ask two of our Trader Team who have made the switch!
Avalon, Founder of Trader Trove, Energetic Healer and mother of 2 gorgeous boys.
Sharna, Trader Trove's ray of sunshine Marketing Manager and Owner of Swimwear Label Salté.
Why the change to Modi Bodi period undies?
Avalon: I had never considered switching from tampons and guess it was just a habit of cultivated since being a teen and uneducated. I have always suffered with pain and long bleeds so when a friend suggested that my symptoms may be caused by them I wanted to try an alternative. I switched to pads and found instant relief! I couldn't believe it actually! I’ve been looking at ways to be more sustainable in all areas of my life so instantly looked for an alternative to using many pads each cycle and after researching online found Modi Bodi!
Sharna: Imagine this. Working your ass off each week, to save some money... and then using that hard earned money to purchase pads and tampons that we literally bleed on and throw in the bin. After researching the amount of money each woman uses on sanitary products in their lifetime I said cya to tampons and pads, and created a passionate love for Modi Bodi, and the menstrual cup!
Before converting to Modi Bodi what was your sanitary item of choice?
Avalon: Tampons and pads as I would need both because my cycle was long and heavy. I tried the cup too but found it messy and uncomfortable.
Sharna: Tampons during the day & pads at night.
What type of Modi Bodi period undies did you buy and why?
Avalon: I bought a mix of the high waist intimates and 1 x boy legs to try something different. 3 x heavy flow and 2 x light flow in total.
Sharna: I purchased the Classic Bikini (max absorbency) in black & the Sensual High wasted bottom (moderate absorbency) in beige.
Lets talk about the fit? does it feel like you are wearing spanx? and would you say true to size?
Avalon: love the fit! Super comfy, lovely fabric and true to size.
Sharna: The fit is amazing! They just feel like normal undies with a little extra padding. I would say they're true to size, yep!
How do they feel? damp? uncomfortable? Bulky?
Avalon: I was immediately so surprised that they are not bulky at all, nothing like having a huge pad in your undies. I was even doubting they would work as I just felt naked wearing them!
Sharna: I guess it depends on how much you bleed, but mine weren't damp. I mean, if you're a heavy bleeder & they felt damp you could always just swap during the day. I didn't need to though! Other than that they are super comfy! Comfier than all the other sanitary products that's for sure.
Tell us about the washing process?
Avalon: I immediately rise them when I take them off or just hand wash and hang so they are dry and ready for the following day unless of course I’m out where I just take a bag to pop the used ones in and change to a fresh spare pair which I take with me.
Sharna: After wearing mine all day, I rinsed them in the shower, hand washed them with some mild soap & let them dry outside. Good to go again! Yipee!
What would you say to the ladies contemplating but maybe a lil nervous about making the switch?
Avalon: Try them! You have nothing to lose! Even if you use tampons, a cup or have heavy discharge the Modi Bodo product is so versatile, sustainable and feels like a gift for my body every cycle. Honouring the flow is more then just awareness. My cycle went from a painful 14day mess to a now 4 day healthy joy. No joke, Modi Bodi has totally changed my life!
Sharna: Do it darls! It's not gross! It's better for the bank, the environment, and your body. What have you got to lose?
We have a size range of all the most popular styles of ModiBodi in store!
