ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY
Firstly we want to pay our respects to the Indigenous Peoples of the lands on which we live and work, the Wurundjeri People and the Kulin Nation.
‘Can’t Find It?’ Sales Agencies acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Wominjeka (Welcome), Ngoon Godgin (Thank You)!
When we started Can’t Find It? Sales & Distribution Agency, way back in 2008, with over thirty years experience within the retail and wholesale industry, from cosmetics to publishing, we knew there were many products missing in the Australasian Market.
Especially those which were high-quality, on trend and well designed but were also socially and sustainably responsible.
So, the search began to carefully curate brands that were focused on artisanally handmade products that were well made, but were also environmentally friendly and ethically produced.
Searching out distributors and brands that shared our values and ethos, while designing products in styles and colours that were unique and on trend, but also timeless, so they can grow with you and your families through the years.
Now in 2020, in this rapidly changing global market, it is even more necessary to focus on developing brands that support chemical free production, organic wherever possible, using ethical and humane, artisanal and traditional practices, preserving culture and community, skills and resources.
Can't Find It?
We distribute artisanal, ethical and organic brands from the US, to retailers throughout Australia, New Zealand & Oceania. Currently we distribute Blabla Kids, elizabethW and Zestt Organics. We also represent the brands distributed by Nomades Home, Melody Nelson and em-3, developing these brands throughout Australia and in some cases New Zealand and beyond.
Nomades is the exclusive importer and distributor of boutique European brands selected for their ethics, aesthetics and timeless design. We have been working with Nomades for over a decade, representing some of the most on trend, sustainable European brands to Australia & New Zealand. Currently they include Numero 74, Muskhane, Camomile London, Oli & Carol, and Nobodinoz.
Established in 2016, em-3 are focused on innovative design for everyday living, representing brands who produce design focused products with integrity. Currently em-3 represents Artecnica from Los Angeles and the brand new Melbourne based MINIMRKT, to retailers throughout Australia, New Zealand and beyond.
Focused on sourcing unique, high-quality products that are both ethical and sustainable, Melody Nelson currently distributes the unique We Dream In Colour, an all female label hand-making their beautiful jewellery in Salem, USA. They distribute to retailers throughout Australia and New Zealand.
All our iconic brands focus on creating well designed, heirloom quality products that are made using artisanal traditional processes, supporting communities with fair pay, ethical workplaces, processes and environments.
Ensuring organic, natural materials are the primary components used within each collection. Grown and sourced from sustainable farms and factories, then handmade and processed through ethical and sustainable pathways, supporting communities and villages and protecting cultural practices.
It has been my pleasure to have worked with Nina since we opened our shop in 2012, stocking a number of the brands that Can’t Find It? represents.
Nina is always enthusiastic about the beautiful products that she works with and is extremely knowledgeable about their design, process and catalog .
She is a great communicator, which makes ordering a breeze, and is excellent at sending reminders for ordering deadlines, giving updates on shipments and juggling the different brands under the Can’t Find It? banner.
I have known Nina for eight years now. Every new buying season is exciting, Nina is knowledgeable across all ranges. I love how she takes the time to advise and assist in my decision making we, have so much fun together choosing colours and sizes of all the beautiful clothing.
Nina is a professional woman in business whom I believe is ethical and honest in her work practices. Thank you Nina xx
Nina is extremely efficient, not only does she know her product, but she has sharp instincts and strong ethics. Moreover, she understands the complexities that face small businesses all whilst maintaining a clear view of the ‘bigger picture’.
I met Nina way back in 2006 not long after I opened my retail store. It was a serendipitous meeting and we’ve been working together in some form ever since. Fast forward to 2015 when I decided to close my retail store and become a distributor for We Dream in Colour jewellery, it was Nina whom I sought out for advice. It’s now 2020 and Melody Nelson has been successfully collaborating with Can’t Find It on Trade Events for the past 5 years.

I have worked with Can’t Find It? since we launched Talo Interiors over 5 years ago, and would be happy to recommend Nina to anyone!
Nina is extremely professional and I have really appreciated how she has always communicated with me at every point throughout the sales process.
