What's on ...

Designer Dirt is celebrating 5 years!!

We are very excited about reaching our 5th birthday at Designer Dirt and we would love it if you could help us celebrate!

A number of things are happening …

  1. On Saturday 21st we will have the Coffee to Go van and Driplock doughnuts at the yard (if you haven’t tried one of these yet – they are amazing!  Please note – they may sell out quite quickly!)  We will also have 10% off EVERYTHING!!  Great for a bit of early Christmas shopping …
  1. Any purchase you make from now until the end of November at Designer Dirt will put you in the draw to WIN your choice of a $400 voucher or a 1200mm raindrop sculpture!  If you want to double your chances of winning, just show us you have shared our post on Facebook or Instagram
  1. We are also giving away one of our 750g candles on Facebook and also one on Instagram!  These candles are hand poured by lovely local, Rochelle, of New Scentsations – and they smell divine!
  1. 15% off all silver jewellery from Salvation Gallery from now until we close on Saturday 21st
  1. We will be giving away a ticket to our upcoming workshop, LUST FOR RUST!  Stay tuned to find out more about that as we get closer to the day

We hope you are as excited about all of this as we are!  Hope to see you soon – and thank you for your continued support – we wouldn’t have made it without you!

Lend a hand to help Yarloop

A massive THANK YOU to everyone that joined us in helping the people of Yarloop rebuild their homes after the January bushfires by potting up plants and cuttings at our Busy Bee at Designer Dirt on Sunday 13th November between 10am and 4pm.


So many pots, plants and cuttings turned up, along with some very handy people!  Around 80 volunteers potted up thousands of plants on the day.


Yarloop will definitely be a lot greener thanks to you all!


Special thanks to Australia Post for carting everything we planted up to Yarloop and Small Business Centre Great Southern and Oyster Harbour Store for smoko.
