'For Haiti'

'We are all part of each other and this is my promise, I won't pass you by and I won't ignore you and look the other way but I'll help you build your nest again. This is my promise'

This beautiful print full of so much love and hope will be in Ryantown this weekend. An edition of 200, and with all profits going straight to help the people of Haiti, we could raise over £37,000.

The Gift

Very happy to report that the 'The Gift' by Rob and Carol Ann Duffy will be back in Ryantown this weekend. All copies of this lovely hardback book sold in the shop have been signed by the man himself.

Yes, it was a close call. It was looking like the sweater might have to take the honour, but then along came this magnificent English Bulldog. It seemed impolite to ask for a rear view photograph to match the one of the sweater. Because even though Her Name Was Lola, she wasn't a Showallgirl...

I walked through the flower market with this cup in hand to show Carl how beautiful these chincherinchee he gave me were after FIVE WHOLE WEEKS!!! They have been sitting on the counter in the shop in the smallest drop of water. The Florist's Nightmare they may be, but we're loving them in Ryantown. You can read all about Carl here

We had a hunt around the studio and there they were....a little pile of about half a dozen Valentine's cards just waiting for their moment. All hand screen printed, signed and editioned, they are available in Ryantown this weekend.

New boxes

The photos of these gorgeous new boxes look a bit 'work in progress' but what the heck, the boxes are so lovely they need to be shared. Hand printed of course, in the studio, they are going to be as coveted as the mugs they are designed to protect. Especially made for all the exclusive printed mugs available in Ryantown.

Yes, it's almost that time of year...'s something that will still get the message across if you are averse to hearts and flowers.

Wrapping Paper

This weekend we brought in a few sheets of wrapping paper to the shop. Designed by Rob and produced by the company Wild & Wolf. The wrapping paper is part of a larger range of licensed products that you have almost certainly started to see all around the country just lately.
