We are in the middle of stocktaking here at The Red Door, but we managed to get lots done this afternoon which meant it was time for a cup of tea and a good old esty browse. It seems like a lifetime ago I was last drooling over some of the gorgeous products that etsy showcases. I thought it was only fitting that I share with you some of the bits and bobs that caught my attention today. Enjoy x

Poketo will celebrate the launch of its new space – and a new era - by presenting “First Editions,” a show featuring limited edition letterpress and giclee prints by 25 international artists. This show will showcase the work or artists such as Sarah Utter, Peskimo, Lisa Congdon, Pietari Posti and Andrew Jeffrey Wright to name just a few. Print editions of 50-100 made exclusively for Poketo will be available at the show so those of you lucky enough to be in LA on the 22nd should mark this one in your diary and head down to what will surely be a great opening.

Yesterday a box of goodies from Norwich based Illustrator Gemma Correll arrived for us all to drool over. Gemma's work is mainly drawing, collage and print based, but she also dabbles with textiles. We stock her hillarious bear zine, stickers, colouring books and badge packs which range from £3-£4. We also love her pimped pumps which she did for Lazy Oaf in London. Gemma has an amazing range of clients under her belt already and is a member of Norwich based crafty crew Fine City Friends. Oh and she also loves flat shoes, milkshakes and kittens.

I have just been browsing over Los Angeles based artist Steven Harringtons website. I absolutely love his opening page (see top image) and adore his prints, graphics and book illustration. As well as owning and operating National Forest Design with fellow artist Justin Krietemeyer, he still finds time to work on both commissioned and self-inspired art projects of his own. How one does this I do not know, but hats off to Steven as we think his work is just brilliant!

Stuart White popped in this afternoon to drop off some new shoppers produced by Glasgow based shop Hitherto. These superb 'Ahoy Matey' totes are designed by Emily Robertson for Hitherto (which is a brilliant shop that you should all go and check out) and are available now. Another reason to say no to plastic!

Fancy checking out some great bargains this weekend? The Village Fete being held at Old St Paul’s Church Hall here in Edinburgh is the place to go. It’s a chance for local artists and makers to show off their work and for you all to nab some original goodies and listen to some great tunes. Illustrator Lizzie Stewart is responsible for all the goodness that the Village Fete has to offer. If you’re in Edinburgh (or thereabouts) this Saturday 8th March it is highly recommended you head along to see what happening. You might also find some delicious cake too!

Spring is here and the new Kate Sheridan range has just arrived on our doorstep. Not only are we contending with 7 large boxes of gorgeous bags and accessories, but we are all trying to pick which ones we are going to buy. A tough choice.
The Spring/Summer 08 collection is spread over three themes of 'Stripe', 'Flora' and 'Howler' and are a welcome change from the severity of the current 'it' bags by appealing to the customer with love of colour, pattern and good design.
Prices range from £7 through to £78 and we always have very limited stock so you best get your selves in to check them out. xx
