CreativeMornings /Auckland with The Bread and Butter Letter
Friday 24 March, 8.00am - 9.30am
The Kitchen, Ponsonby
This month we have the global theme of Backwards, and the CreativeMornings Auckland team has decided to take a somewhat vintage approach to the notion. And who better to speak about that, than Sarah & Rose from The Bread and Butter Letter.
The Bread and Butter Letter is an Auckland boutique that sells New Zealand made, hand crafted products alongside curated vintage, and delicious and local loose leaf tea. They represent this months theme “backwards", as they not only sell retrospective items, but also because their business’ focuses are quite ‘backwards’.
While most companies continue to make mass-produced, low-quality items from foreign countries, T.B.A.B.L is strictly locally made, where items are made from the very hands of our creative community (including the owners themselves!).
The events they host encourage this communal focused idea, and some of their products suggest a slowing-down process like the days of old. The values are not unique to just the store, but are seen more and more in businesses of all sizes around the world.
It’s backwards, but it’s making a comeback. Read more about the speakers, event details and register here »
May’s Global Theme is “Backwards”

Now for May, we’re excited to announce our next theme: “Backwards.” Our past Chicago host Mig Reyes selected the theme and the talented Chicago-based photographer Paul Octavious provided a photo for our monthly illustration.
A few speakers from our 50 participating cities include Pam Goldsmith-Jones (Vancouver), Mira Kaddoura (Portland), and Seth Godin (New York).
