Brand new shop!

Surprise! Dandylion has moved into a brand new space. You wont have any trouble finding the new store though - its now at 208 Left bank Arcade - just a hop, skip and a jump from the old Dandylion. Just venture a little bit further into the arcade past the fantastic California sushi. New Dandylion is a cute corner shop with lots of windows and space to display all the great New Zealand designer fashion we have + our "frocks that rock!" - vintage dresses that are for costume hire. I also have a little workspace - remember that you can get alterations and dressmaking done in store.

To celebrate the new shop and also our 4th birthday we're having a little opening party - keep your eyes out for further information, and for a personal invite and the chance to get up to 40% off anything you like from Dandylion for the rest of April join up to the Dandy club - you'll get emails every so often that keep you updated on all Dandylion affairs, new stock and special offers!

To join just email with Dandy club in the subject line and include your name and email address.

New beautiful wallets

Well yesterday I had the joy of opening a big box full of new stock from Jo Sweeney. Shes been a regular supplier to Dandylion in the four years weve been open so many of you will probably know all about her gorgeous range of lace and vinyl wallets, and vintage fabrics belts and cuffs. If you dont - come in and see, there is a beautiful range of rich deep colours in this new lot- just what i love to see when winter is approaching. Jo Sweeney wallets/purses & belts retail at $45, and cuffs are $20.

yummy toast!

Some of you will be familiar with Toast clothing from past Craftwerks, with bright vintage fabrics and super cute applique Toast bags, hats and clothing really stand out.

Now you can get Toast anytime at Dandylion. This winter we are stocking a range of tote bags in velvety thick corduroy - $50, and beautiful hoodies in all kinds of colours and size 6-14, ranging in price from $100 - $130. Yum!
