steamerys, fabric shavers and launching designist eats

You gotta love a good stack. And nothing makes a better one these these Leuchtturm1917 notebooks, journals, sketchbooks and diaries. Sure, ‘it’s the season to be organising ourselves and getting ready for the autumn, and what better way to do it than with one of these exceedingly high quality, scrum my coloured, gorgeous to use notebooks? All Leuchtturm notebooks are thread-bound, making them super-durable and also meanng they open out flat. The expandable back pocket will house all those receipts, tickets, business cards etc that otherwise you would lose. The paper is both ink-proof (so no show-through or blotching) and acid-free (so no discoloration over time). This, combined with its sturdiness, is what makes it a top choice for stationary enthusiasts and bullet journal fans all over the globe.

 

 

BACK IN STOCK! Everyone’s favourite Irish language prints by @lapabeag. Which is your favourite?

I am determined to get more organised this term. I am going to be ON IT. These keyboard calendars are great for those of us who are stuck in front of a computer for much of the day. Slimline, they fit just under or to the side of your keyboard, so it is always to hand. Each page contains one week for you to have a good overview of what you’re meant to be doing and where you’re meant to be going. And very handily, as the pages are not dated, if you have an off week (or two) you won’t waste pages - making the calendar work for you. We also have a matching notebook it handy grids for drawing or scribbles, note making or whatever is needed. There ya go, how you have no more excuses to procrastinate

 

 

Whatever the occasion, mark it with a card. And if you are stuck in, or outside of Dublin, and can’t give the card in person, let us handwrite your message and post it directly to your loved one.

A few cards that have been very popular this last week....

 

 

The littlest human in our house loves dolls. And sure, why not? I loved mine as a kid. But now looking back at my raggedly collection of barbies, I now understand my mum’s resistance to buy them for me. With their oversized chests and feet manipulated in such a way that they were forever in tippy toes, and clothes that were always just a little too over the top. . Lottie dolls are the perfect tonic. This Irish company designs dolls that are proportional and age appropriate. They often use real life children with remarkable stories as inspiration and always create dolls that are imaginative, and fun. Whether they want to build and invent, report on exciting events or take care of pets- Lottie dolls and her boy counter part Finn dolls do so in fun, accessible and relatable ways. . We particularly love this new true hero doll which is inspired by 12-year-old Aoibheann Mangan's amazing story of how she is inspiring other girls to get into stem. Aoibheann, European digital girl of the year, taught herself to code and then created an app inspired by her best friend Grace, to show other kids what happens when you go to hospital. . We are open today from 12.30-5pm so if you are having a relaxed day in town, do pop in. Otherwise our online store is up and running making sure you get your orders nice and quickly
