We hope everyone had a safe and fun October. We took a break from newsletter writing last month to focus exclusively on adding amazing new goods to the shop, and we think we've succeeded!
So, without further adieu, we present the latest additions:
We've got nine new Nikki McClure cards now in stock. There are some great ones from her 2012 calendar, but also some amazing old ones, like this one of her old cat Bud. There's also an image of a cake that's perfect for weddings.
Have your friends ever told you that you should "just get a cactus, because they are *impossible* to kill" — yet, you've killed it anyway?
Well, have we got the plant for you.
We're excited to add new work from Portland, Oregon based Rachel Austin.
Her current line of work resonates a sense of the simple beauty found in the spare and innocent scenes of everyday life.
Bright colors, flowers, paper-airplanes.
Cycling activist Amy Walker has gathered a wide-ranging group of cycling writers to explore the ways that biking can change, and is changing, people’s lives.
Stephen Bilenky has called it "The Whole Earth Catalog of bicycle culture."
Everyone's favorite Texan has created a new line of shirts just for us. From this handsome relaxing dude to a slogan shirt with the instruction: Drink Coffee, Drink Whiskey. Truer words.
Our friends from the friendly North (that's Canada) have released the 11th issue of their fabulous design magazine.
As always, it's a great read and worth picking up.
Little Otsu continues their wonderful series of illustrated mini-art books with the work of Becca Stadtlander.
The Slingshot Organizer is now in its 18th year. The funds raised in selling the organizer go to publish the radical and independent Slingshot newspaper.
Julia Rothman has created an amazing book about all the parts and pieces of a farm; from what it takes to make an American windmill to the birds that swoop around them, from baking bread and how to sheer a sheep.
Nik Bresnick drew, designed and printed all the flora and fauna for this wonderful phonetic alphabet series.
Twenty-six individual, amazing prints.
Five new prints from Daria Tesller.
Scout Books has released a new line of colorful, pocket-size notebooks for your note-taking pleasures.
Ten different colors; from white to black and everywhere in-between.
These socks speak for themsleves.
With awesome patterns on them.
Do you hear them talking?
Curious Doodles has created a kit that makes making a tea towel calendar fun! Combining traditional craft with modern design, these are a fun practical gift.
If there are two people that know what it is to DIY, then they are Laurie and Debbie who founded Bust magazine over 15 years ago. Their new book is a compendium of amazingness, with tons of tips, tricks and how-to's on everything from making dresses to building holiday decorations.
Whether it's a Handlebar, a Fu Manchu, or a Laser Loop, this illustrated guide will help men everywhere achieve the moustache of their dreams. Included are instructions for how to grow, groom, and maintain thirty classics.
Get back to basics with these amazing animal shaped crayons, hand-crafted by Portland, Oregon's Crystal Ayala.
The crayons are made using recycled crayon wax, which is poured into custom-made molds of different animals.
Katie Kirk has hit it out of the (dog) park with her first book.
Eli is a sweet dog with a knack for getting into huge messes.
A monkey battles for the supremacy of the emerald/coffee city against a giant kitty. What isn't to love in this picture?
From Hobbedy's Latern to the Ghost Pumpkin, Arcana Soaps has a scent for you this season. As the fall leaves touch the ground, rest in the knowledge that you are clean and prepared for change.
We've been big fans of Susie's for a long time, so we're exciting to be adding her work to the shop. We've got a few items in stock now, and will be adding more over the next month or so. Her work is fun and delightful.
Aron's latest book is perhaps his best to date. Switching gears a little from his love of cats, he takes on dogs.
So, all get on your bicycles and ride through the Super Duper Dog Park.
We've expanded our selection of Weekend Store products to include lockets, cufflinks and more necklaces.
As always, we appreciate your continued support!
