Friday Features - 11/15/19

Happy Friday everyone! Here at Inkwell, we’ve been feeling the buildup to the holiday season. We’ve had plenty of new arrivals of holiday cards and calendars, not to mention a new artist to debut! Here’s what has been featured on our social media for the past week.

maritime slang screen printed tea towel by Far Far Away Shop
The newest design by local designer, Far Far Away Shop, has arrived at Inkwell! This Maritime slang tea towel contains 83 unique slang phrases from around the Maritimes, and includes 21 equally unique town names from Atlantic Canada. It’s a great way to spark some conversation about what interesting things we’ve said & heard in Eastern Canada. Available now in-store and online.

women who make 2020 calendar by Sarah Duggan
Waiting to see what Sarah Duggan releases for her calendar has become a bit of a holiday tradition for us here at Inkwell. Every year she continues to stun us with an assortment of carefully chosen illustrations to welcome the new year and her 2020 calendar is no exception to this! This 2020 Calendar titled “Women Who Make” celebrates women living creatively. Each month features a group of women gathered together to do handcrafts and creative projects. Each page is thoughtfully designed to be re-purposed into 5x7 postcards at the end of each month (or year).

Screenprinted Calendar Tea Towel by Keephouse
Another highly anticipated yearly release for us is this limited edition calendar tea towel from Keephouse Studio. The new 2020 design is bursting with bright colours and floral images. It is now available in-store and online but has been a quick seller every year we’ve carried it - it’s best to act sooner than later for this one.

Halifax crame Card by Bard Cards - Brad Hartman
Brad Hartman of Bard Cards features the infamous Halifax crane in his most recent popup card. If you’re looking for a quirky, Halifax-themed way to wish someone a “Merry Cranemas” this card is perfect for you! Available In-store and online!

handmade perfume by FieldHouse Handmade
Fieldhouse Handmade is one of the new artists we’re pleased to welcome this week! Lindsay makes an assortment of wonderfully scented bath salts and perfume blends. This week we’ve featured her zodiac scent series, in which she has created a custom scent for each astrological sign. Each perfume is delicately scented, so you and those close to you can uncover the layers of fragrance, while not leaving a heavily scented trail behind you. The convenient packaging allows you to pop this perfume in your purse or pocket so you can refresh and stay smelling beautiful all day!

food truck calendar
This lighthearted food truck 2020 calendar by Slightly Stationery is a perfect gift for any casual foodie in your life. Each month features a whimsically drawn food truck selling all sorts of different types of food & drink! It is available in-store now.
