Inkwell is on the Move!

Inkwell is on the Move!

After 5 years on Brunswick, we're moving and are beyond excited to let you know that Inkwell will soon be found on South Park Street!

Our new location is in a neighbourhood with complementary local businesses and a park across the street! Inkwell will be accessible by broad sidewalks, protected bike lanes, nearby bus stops, and street parking.

In June, you will find Inkwell in the Spring Garden Area of Halifax, sitting between the stylish folks at Thumpers Hair Salon and the tasty treats of Bliss Caffeine Bar! The block also includes local businesses Fawcett's Fine Jewellery, Thornbloom, as well as Dairy Bar in the warmer months.

While we're going to miss the friends we've made on Brunswick, we're confident that our customers will fall in love with our new digs! It will offer more space to display our handmade delights, as well as more space for our studio.

We’ll be open on Brunswick until we’re ready to make the leap. Until then, watch this space for updates — we’ll share some sneak peeks in the coming weeks!

This move wouldn’t be possible without all of YOU — I’ve truly been blown away by your continued support these last 11 years! I promise I’ll do everything I can to make our new space just as special as the two that you came to know and love. I hope you'll help us spread the word!

With so much gratitude + excitement,
💖
Andrea and team Inkwell

10th Anniversary!

10th Anniversary
This week marks 10 years of business for Inkwell!

Thank you to the wonderful customers who shop at Inkwell. I'm so proud and thankful to still be here and couldn't have done it without your incredible support over the years - through all the highs and lows!

Over the last decade, we've had 2 different locations, countless open houses and book signings, printing demos and letterpress keepsakes, collaborations, crafting workshops, an in-house/wholesale product line, awards, accolades, and features on TV, in books, magazines and newspapers. We've gone from a one page website to a full e-commerce site with thousands of products.

During this time, we've made countless friendships, worked alongside the best employees and makers. I can't wait to see what the next 10 years will bring!

Thank You for 10 years of support!
We've seen you, our customers, through the celebrations and sorrows that life brings and our community has seen us through the joys and challenges that shop ownership presents.

I hope you feel every purchase is a transfer of the enthusiasm I feel for everything we offer in Inkwell. I hope that some of the love that each maker puts into the handmade items we sell brightens your day, whether it's something for yourself or a gift for someone else.

Ten years in business is a major milestone and we'll celebrate in person when it's safe to do so.

Thank you all for your continued support and for allowing me to live my dream.


💞  Andrea
