Friday finds

Hopefully this will be an regular edition for Fridays, be it actual physical finds or just things we might come across online that tickles our fancy.

We regularly try to visit the Bath and West show ground where they host a fine giant flea market.
There's usually quite a lot to trawl through, although on this particular day the outdoor furniture sellers didn't last long due to the rain.
 We spent most of our time in the indoor area searching through lots of old trinkets and bits and pieces. We didn't collect much but we did come across these beautiful invoices and letterheads from the 20's/30's/50's and even one from 1870 - these will eventually grace our new big padded pin board which is coming soon to our shop walls together with a slight refit.

Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair 2011

On 20th March 2011, we will be attending our very first wedding fair.
We used some glorious crockery from Bristol Vintage on our opening back in October last year, and they were so incredibly helpful to us - not to mention aiding us with many beautiful tea dispensing vessels.

When they asked us to come along to their vintage wedding fair (the first vintage wedding fair in the West) we just couldn't refuse!
So on the 20th we will be heading down to The Clifton Pavilion at the Bristol Zoo Gardens.

We will be offering 15% off Bespoke Wedding stationery ordered from us at the fair or if you are one of the lucky people to get the first 250 goodie bags given out on the day, you will find a lovely letterpress voucher for stationery from us inside!

We will also have our new stationery guides available to take away, more on that soon...

Christine Celic Strohl

I discovered Christine Celic Strohl late last year, whilst aimlessly wondering through a design blog. I found her work instantly inspiring. Envy always sets in when I see such fantastic work, but can only be used to fuel the fire for more fine stationery designing!

Welcome to our new blog! It's taken us a little while to get things going here, we've got our facebook and twitter sites up and running now - website still being worked on though but will be with us soon, promise!

Anyway, this blog is a way of showing some of our daily inspiration, designs and new products that we may have coming soon. Also a way of letting you see what might be possible for your stationery.

New posts coming soon!
As it's valentines day, here's a few shots of this years letterpress valentines cards from Meticulous Ink.
