Take the time to Rewind


Rewind coffee beans are roasted in Australia and come foil packed in a canister that is airtight, stackable, and reusable. 
A homage to the kitchen canister of yesteryear, Rewind have got the colour hues spot on, plus the silver foil script makes it a kichen deco that will stick around for years after the coffee is enjoyed.
Six sexy varieties are available: CREMA DELUXE, BOMBA BOLD, LUNA NOVA, ULTRA ESPRESSO, DYNA DECAF, and a drinking chocolate COCO SMOOTH
Available individually as well as a gift boxed sample pack of six.

fine knitting needles

'Kearnsie' has done it again, perhaps to match with your ring that we posted last week, or for the lovers of a bracelet out comes the trio. Wear one or wear all three and choose red, magenta, golden yellow or aqua.
They are anodised, aluminium and are here now!

coin operated design

'coin operated design' is a brand spanking pair of designers who have come up with a holga, camera candle.
In super, white wax these have incredible detail, you can feel the faux leather cover, see the hinges to load up your film and grooves to wind to the next frame.
Not to be missed and probably too good to light, so stayed tuned to see what they come up with next.

your friends address book

And your potential friends can also include:
'Jasmine', who has very cute pig tails; 'Kinetic', who is a super stripe fellow; 'Tarquin', your little bird man and even 'Wiskers' who may like to eat Tarquin so you'll have to make sure you take care of each other!
There is generous space for the names and addresses of friends, family or work contacts in this book. In addition to this, envelopes are bound at intervals to denote each new letter of the alphabet which is where you will find your friends! A whole family of friends for you to enjoy! 

travel journals

'Sukie' is based in the UK and is produced by couple Darrell and Julia. Their products include screen printed tea towels, travel journals and sweet little note books.
The images above shows the current travel journals, including our favorite 'central park' and 'winnebago.' Whats not to love as they contain a mixed selection of lined, plain and squared paper for writing and drawing. They also have glassine pockets and brown envelopes sewn into the binding which may be used for collecting ephemera.

's' can be for slice time today

In between working in the shop, sewing or printing out the back in the studio and general business like activities (yes we can be grown up) we still manage to find time to do some food making which pays off on rainy day like today!
Smiles all round when you pull out the old lemon slice....
