some help please

I need some help on a couple of matters. First of all, does anyone here in New Zealand know where to buy Aniseeds? and I don't mean star anise. I've tried my local health food shops and they put me on to a Mini mart in my town that I didn't know existed that has a huge range of exotic bulk food but alas no aniseeds. I'm happy to buy online from NZ too so let me know if you can help.

The second thing is this really cool bag that I thrifted, it smelly musty after lots of sunshine and days hanging outside on the line, in the rain and sunshine. I've soaked it in baking soda which normally works but I think because it's made of a water resistant kind of fabric the smell isn't coming out very easily. Any thoughts or suggestions? It's super cute, in the picture above it's at it's full length, it's got s zippered section so you can make it shorted.

So I'd love to hear any suggestions on these matters! Hope your Friday is going well.


  1. Maybe soak it in water with white vinegar?

  2. I wish I could help! Unfortunately I have no advice to offer for either problem... good luck!

  3. hmm, i was going to say white vinegar and maybe in the summer you could leave it outside in the sun for a few days- that might help. what a cool bag!
    as for the aniseed, i'm sorry but i have no idea! i will ask at my health food store today though.

    i work @ a bakery and we by it from them
