Do you gift wrap?
100000% We LOVE to gift wrap. We use brown paper and a water based ink stamp on the paper. It's all compost friendly and looks perfect tied up with a big ribbon. You can pick the colour of the ribbon.
Yes, we still gift wrap during busy periods *ahem Christmas* and we're more than happy to do it. Sometimes you might just have to be a tiny bit patient if we've got a few people who need wrapping, but we're very speedy.
Do you have bags?
Sorry fam, we don't have bags. But you've got like 50 canvas totes in a drawer somewhere in your house don't you? :)
How do you pick the things for your shop?
Maggie May curates Think Thornbury. She does this by spending a lot of time researching and exploring. We don’t pick things out of catalogs and we try and stock things that aren’t already available locally. We love locally made things that have heart and a story behind them.
Can you stock the thing that I make?
We’d love to hear from you. We are always on the lookout for new beautiful things BUT Check out what we already stock, research the shop and who we are. We like local, sustainable, ethically manufactured and original ideas.
Please remember that we get a lot of inquiries and you might not hear back from us. If we say “No, Thank You” it’s not always a reflection of you and what you’re making, it might just not be right for us right now.
If you’re getting started with a new brand or idea and you’re keen for some feedback Maggie May offers a professional creative consulting service and will give you some advice on what you’re doing and how to put yourself on the path to success.
Please don't DM us on Instagram, we won't read it.

YES. Flat rate shipping AUSTRALIA WIDE.
Do you ship overseas?
We offer international shipping to NEW ZEALAND. You can select this at the checkout. There are two options, if you're getting something bulky PLEASE select the big option for shipping. It's awks when we have to ask you to check out again with the correct shipping.
It's so expensive to send things overseas, we're happy to give you a quote but it will be above AU$50 for most places. Sorry, we don't set the prices :(
Please don't select NZ shipping if you're trying to send something to somewhere that is not NZ. Yes congratulations, you've hacked the international shipping checkout but it's not gonna be enough to cover shipping to somewhere that is not NZ. Thank you!
What are your Gift Voucher Terms and Conditions?
You can also purchase an "In-Store" gift voucher in the shop, we'll print you out a nice piece of paper and it can say To: and From:
