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.
