thINKing about Inktober? We got you covered

For this #Inktober we have a price-match guarantee on our fountain pens!

My personal favourite is the hooded, Kaco Retro Fountain pen. It comes in a practical, matt gift box with two ink cartridges AND a converter.

It flows unbelievably beautifully, and is totally unlike any other fountain pen I have used. It sort of is its own genre of pen.

We also have the famous and beautiful Kaweco ink cartridges now in stock, so order both now in an inky gift package for less than £15!

Get your Christmas prezzies sorted now, from independent businesses, before all the commercial shops up their prices!

Beech Road Car Boot this Sunday!

Come rain or come shine, come down and say HI to us at The Beech Inn Chorlton‘s first Car Boot sale!

All of our new stock will be on display, some of which you can view here, but some of which – think posh and non-posh fountain pens and calligraphy equipment – has not graced our online store with its presence just yet…

Fabriano EcoAquas range will be up to a pound cheaper at the stall on Sunday. Get your orders in quick!

Our Pink Pigs will be there too, just waiting to find – oink – a new home.

Sticker Emporium

Wahey! Have finally made some attempt at configuring the Sticker Emporium on the website, but I won’t lie, it was a mess.

I have thousands and thousands of stickers in all sorts of styles; galaxy, neon lights, beach themed, inspirational quotes, skulls etc.

You name it, I probably have a large, waterproof, very high quality vinyl sticker for it, perfect for laptops, skateboards, furniture, your annoying sibling’s forehead, cards and little pick-me-up gifts for your mopey friends.

Check it out the Sticker Emporium page to find out how to order gift-wrapped wee sticker packets for yourself or for friends online.

Over and out!

New Lightbox, New Me

I’ve been working hard amidst bouts of unrelenting illness to photograph a load of my new products properly and upload them to the site.

I am SO excited to be able to announce that I am now officially a seller of Pink Pig Sketchbooks; however I have not yet added this section with the associated information to the site. So please bear with me!

I know that I should wait until I’ve finished the site and uploaded eveything but…. my dream has finally come true – I am officially a stockist of my favourite papermakers in the whole entire world @pinkpigsketchbooks ! Doesn’t matter that body malfunctioning and am behind on everything because of pain and painkillers – I’m covered in #pinkpigsketchbooks! Will Update again as site updates. Thanks everyone who’s bought stuff already and I look forward to seeing you at @headstretford on the 14th! . . . . . . . Watch this space for the worlds best quality and best value sketchbooks handmade in Yorkshire! . . . . . #snschorlton #stationarynstationery #notebooktherapy #sketchbooktherapy #sketchbookchallenge #journalling #artjournal #cartridgepaper #recycledpaper #pinkpigsketchbooks #ethicalconsumer #ethicalshopping #independentbusiness #stocktake #disabledartist #manchesterartist #artandaccess #disabilityvisibility

MY aim is to have all my current stock (seriously, there is a LOT) up on the site by Saturday 14th September at HEAD, when I have my next double stall.

As usual, there will be a whole load of items for sale that are not, and will never be, on the website – these are exclusively available at the market stall.

Come have a gander at the wonderful crafts and treats from around Manchester, and I look forward to seeing you there! If you can’t make it, you’d better grab your favourites online now, as a lot of the stock is running low at the moment due to certain items being extremely popular.

Shop’s a go-go!

Hiya! Finally have uploaded some books and various other bits and bobs to the website, so please go have a gander at the shop!

I’ll be at Dulcimer Bar on Sunday from 2pm selling a few bits and bobs as part of the Partisan Access Fund’s Access Mash up event, where I’ll also be joined by the gorgeous artwork of Charlie J. Fitz & Oscar Vinter and the beautiful zines of Pen Fight.

SNS Chorlton will also be functioning long term as a drop off point for much needed donations for Manchester charity Women Asylum Seekers Together. Please see below for information about what is needed in particular. Get in touch if you’d like to drop some stuff off at any point!
