GreenBeans - NZs own nappy making supplies store

Post by Stacey » Sun May 22, 2005 6:05 pm

Ok, so its not a nappy or an accessory - but greenbeans stocks heaps of stuff you'll need for sewing your own nappies (or mama pads, breastpads, slings, nappy accessories, clothing etc etc etc).

Ive placed 2 orders - one is on backorder till the stock arrives, the other I ordered on Wednesday night, got an almost immediate email back, and my package arrived on Saturday. Hows that for prompt service?! Sarah is friendly and helpful, and the website is easy to navigate and informative. Plus, the prices really are some of the lowest around - with free shipping to boot!

5 out of 5 from me as well.

Sarah has been great, bending over backwards to accommodate my sometimes unusual requests.

Another very happy customer here. Fast, friendly service and beautiful fabrics (still can't believe how cheap the hemp is!)

I revisit her website frequently to see what new goodies she has in store (or arriving!). And the free postage - that's just marvellous (sure beats sitting down and calculating what I really want and guessing how much postage will be).

Gosh, I only just noticed this thread!

I can't rave about Sarah's Green Beans store enough, the prices are great, the service is fantastic! (such fast delivery!) AND she's let me layby a snap press, which I simply couldn't afford up front

To the best of my knowledge this is the only NZ nappy sewing supply store,and it's FANTASTIC!

sorry dawn :oops: it was SUPPOSED to be a couple of months away still, but we got a call to say it was in NZ last week - the shipping company sent this piddly little pallet of stuff over all by itself, instead of waiting for the container! :smt013 :smt013 (well, it's nice to have stuff sooner, but very not nice to pay full shipping on just 1 pallet!!)
