The Butter Paddle HOT FLASH 07/06/2018



The Butter Paddle is a fund-raising arm of the EMQ Auxiliary, which has served the needs of local children in crisis since 1934.

100% of the profit from the shop is donated to Uplift Family Services, formerly EMQ FamiliesFirst.




 Hand crafted, high quality, wooden gifts by DCUK are designed to make you smile.

The Chickens have settled well into life on the farm and some of them are sporting colorful Cowboy Boots rather than Welly Boots like their Duck friends.

But look! The Emperor Penguins have arrived! Towering above their fellow farm visitors these penguins can show everyone how it is done. Keen to impress, they are practicing huddles, keeping their beaks high, preening their feathers and diving in the ponds for food.

Penguins, Chickens, & Ducks in Welly Boots!

All available at The Butter Paddle.



MERRITT Melamine Tableware is definitely not your grandma’s melamine! Their sturdy, scratch-resistant plates resemble real china.

From 2 CHIC, perfect lightweight coverups for summertime…

Woven Gold Dot Kimono in two colors: Ivory or Black. 

Woven Print Kimono in two patterns: Paisley or Leaf.

The Butter Paddle also has a lovely collection of lightweight scarves in a variety of colors and prints.


Inspired by the canyons of the southwest, Nambé's Copper Canyon Collection mimics the ridges and ripples of the ravines. The designer scalloped the rim in a symmetrical pattern, emphasizing the scallops' rhythm with ridged, wave-like verdigris, sloping down to the bowl's flat bottom. A smooth band at the top glows with copper's pure warmth.


Robert Rothchild’s Thai Sweet Chili Sauce has a special twist, using Piquanté™ peppers. Sweet yet tangy, with just a hint of sea salt, this well-balanced sauce is extremely versatile in many recipes. Works great as a delicious dipper for spring rolls or update shrimp cocktail with this sauce as a tasty condiment. Serve over steamed rice or noodles.
