shop talk :: Frankie issue #56

16 Oct

Frankie-Magazine-2Frankie-2Frankie-3Frankie-4Frankie-5When I first discovered Frankie, it was love at first sight. I follow their blog and their social media, but it was only last summer when I * finally * found a physical copy of the magazine that I could call my own. You see, Frankie is a bi-monthly magazine based in Australia, that is pretty much impossible to find locally. And when you do find a single copy stuck in the lifestyle section of your magazine shop, it is usually 2 issues behind. Yeah, true story.

Well friends, that is about to change because guess what arrived at my door step yesterday!? FRANKIE MAGAZINE ISSUE #56!  Just available for sale last Monday in Australia, you can be one of the first people in Canada to own a copy! Issues will be available at London Fields Shoppe (692 E. Hastings Street, Vancouver), but obviously, based on the picture in our last blog post, we won’t be open for another few weeks. So, in the meantime, email us at hello @ londonfieldsshoppe.com to reserve a copy for pick up (South Granville or at Knit City, and Urban Market).  Each copy is $19.95 CDN and we only have a limited quantity of 10. Smith Journal is also available, more on that later! 

Read more about frankie magazine here. Issue #56 “We’ve got an ode to first sharehouses, chats with cat ladies, the quietest of quiet furniture, well-dressed beds and a look at the ’80s british indie scene (hello morrissey and much floppy hair!) and how about a bit of love advice from marky ramone, some hip hop cakes, the science of left-handedness, 3d sugar printing – yes, it’s real – snazzy sandals and international nannas showing off their best chow? for those with a crafty bent, we have some pretty ideas for festive décor from some of our favourite maker types (spoiler alert: no santas or reindeer). and if that’s not enough to keep your fingers busy, we invited five rad artists to create some relatively grown-up colouring-in pages for you to scribble and doodle on at will”.

kinfolk magazine

3 Feb

“Kinfolk is a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us. We have come together to create Kinfolk as our collaborative way of advocating the natural approach to entertaining that we love. Every element of Kinfolk—the features, photography, and general aesthetics—are consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.” – kinfolk magazine manifesto

Sounds absolutely perfect! You can purchase volume 1+2 here to add to your collection. Thanks Emily for the heads up!

cath kidston :: magazine + new bag

14 Jun

Cath Kidston‘s fun and colourful prints are a British icon. I always joke to R that ladies here must be born with a Cath Kidston product in their hands as you are sure to spot one on your daily commute! The first Cath Kidston store that I ever stepped foot in was the one near Portobello market and it was pretty much love at first sight. I fell in love with everything in the store and was * almost * doing cartwheels around the pub when I found out that I had won their facebook contest for their new doctor’s bag (insert squeals here).

My package arrived over the weekend and inside was tucked a Cath Kidston magazine and I thought I would share some amazing images. You can check out the entire issue online here. Thanks so much to Cath Kidston for hosting such a fab contest! xo
