"We know many Victorians are really facing it tough at the moment and looking for ways to spark a little joy at home during lockdown and restrictions. Why not bring a bit of the Royal Melbourne Show to your loungeroom?" says Emily Williams of Showbag Shop online, home of Australia's favourite showbags, including the much-loved Bertie Beetle showbag.
"I know it is disappointing to miss out on the Royal Melbourne Show, but you can now get your showbags delivered direct to your door! The good news is our full range of showbags normally available at the Royal Melbourne Show is now available online at www.showbagshop.com.au," continued Mrs Williams.
"There are some excellent options to keep the kids entertained. My personal favourites are the Kids Creation Station and Kids Kitchen showbags. The BIG Nestle Family Deal and some of our Value Bundles provide something for the whole family."
Showbags are uniquely Australian and have been bringing joy to families for over 50 years. Mrs Williams says she was devastated to hear the sad news that the Melbourne Show won't be going ahead this year, after being involved for the last 20 years.
"The Royal Melbourne Show is a significant event on our calendar, and we have been planning for the last 6 months. We were so excited to bring our best range of showbags ever to the Show for Victorians to enjoy. While this is a huge blow for our small business, and many Victorians, we understand the health of Australians is the most important thing," says Mrs Williams.
"Interestingly, we have noticed some orders already starting to come in from Melbourne and regional Victoria, which gives us some hope - I imagine because it is an affordable and easy way to inject a bit of excitement at home during these tough times."
Over 65 showbags are available online, with options for all ages and price points across fashion, beauty, confectionery, entertainment and kids. Chicane's Showbag brands include the iconic Bertie Beetle showbags, as well as Roxy, Nude by Nature, Stella Athletic, Nerf, Home and Away, ACDC and The Beatles, to name just a few.
Want to freshen up your wardrobe but don't have much cash? You are in luck, with the Show Events cancelled this year you can grab a bargin and have it delivered to your door. These showbags are just $30, what!
So we got to play with these two beauties remember they were only $30!
