Stuff I've traded for a kilo of bacon



A Pair of Custom Painted Shoes – Rebecca


Rebecca got in touch with me a few weeks back and offered to trade a pair of custom painted canvas shoes for a kilo of my bacon. This was a pretty intriguing offer, I like shoes, and I like paintings…sounded like good deal. Turns out she has a little web based opperation called Walking Canvas, through which she paints and sells custom canvas shoes, with all sorts of different designs, logos and characters. Check out the link to her Facebook page.

Two O2 Wear Garments – Dave & Anna

Dave and I went to school and uni together, but haven’t seen each other for about six years due to him living and working in China!

Dave and his wife Anna run a small clothing company called O2 Wear, specialising in bamboo fibre and organic cotton clothing. Their company is Australian owned and designed, and they sell women’s basics like crew necks and leggings…all really good stuff. Dave got in touch with me and offered to trade two garments of my choice for a kilo of my bacon, which I thought was a very generous offer….trade accepted! Now before you all start thinking I get around in women’s clothing, the two garments were actually for my girlfriend, who for the sake of anonymity we’ll just call ‘The Butcheress’. She chose a crew neck tee and a camisole, both bamboo fibre, and both excellent quality.
