We want more MORE


We’re wrapping up 2013 and catching up on some of our AWESOME holiday press! MORE Magazine featured three of our items in their holiday gift guide and we couldn’t agree more with their picks! Alison Oliver’s BabyLit series includes such classics as Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, and Alice in Wonderland. The illustrations are precious and it’s never too early to get started reading the classics. Featured on page 82.



We’re also big fans of our band-aid cashmere iron-on patches! O Hole-Y Knit is right! Featured on page 82.


We’ve been swooning over Ryan Gosling all year, and MORE is too! Our Ryan Gosling Coloring Book is featured on page 87. 


Thank you MORE! 

If these items were missed on your list, you can still find them in the shop! Time to treat yourself!

As Featured in Time Out New York!


SO exciting!! Our Sugarcube Press Coaster Calendar was featured in Time Out New York this week! We are in LOVE with this letterpress coaster calendar. Not only is it fun, but also extremely functional! Awesome designs are featured on the front of the coaster with a monthly calendar on back. Never forget the date and keep those water stains from forming on your desk! This calendar is perfect for the office. Get ready! 2014 is almost here!!

Get Crafty with your Gift Giving



We LOVE our DIY Tea Towel Kit, featured in Food Network Magazine’s Holiday Gift Guide. The kit includes an original anchor stamp, blueberry ink pad, and one 100% cotton floursack towel. This is the perfect gift to give any DIY enthusiast OR let your creative juices flow and stamp your own design for someone special. What could be more charming than an anchor stamped tea towel?! It will brighten up every kitchen.

More Cheese Please!

Brooklyn Slate Plate - blog

It’s hard to believe but Christmas is NEXT Wednesday!! I couldn’t be more excited for the holidays, as it’s my favorite time of year. And during the next week there will be parties and dinners to attend. Don’t be overwhelmed! We’ve got you covered with some awesome hostess gifts. We LOVE our Slate Cheese Boards. Locally made, each cheese board is packaged with a burlap bag alongside soapstone chalk and anti-slip padded feet. Available in two sizes: 10″ x 14″ and 7″ x 12″, these are beautiful serving boards that will be a hit at every dinner party now and into the new year!

March to the beat of your own DIY Drum



Our DIY Drum set is the PERFECT gift for every music lover! I know I’ll be gifting this to several folks. Perfect for any age, this drum set is easy to assemble and then the fun begins! The kit comes in natural wood so you can paint, sticker, or glitter to your hearts desire. Instead of just listening to holiday tunes, make some music while you are sitting around the tree! 

Snow time!

8050Everyone I know is getting these for Christmas this year! It’s snowing here in NYC and there has been some serious winter weather across the country. But once it melts, the snowball fights can still go on! These are perfect for indoor and outdoor fun. No need for winter blues – embrace it and have some FUN!


Be Bright! Be Colorful!



The news is out! The Pantone color of the year is Radiant Orchid! Or 18-3224. It’s such a beautiful hue! This could be my color for 2014 for sure. But then, there are so many AMAZING Pantone colors, it’s a little hard to choose. That’s why we LOVE our new Pantone coffee cups! We have a variety of colors because on Monday you might be feeling a little blue (549) but by Friday, red hot (172)! 

Be one or be them all!



Grab your Bike, Bag, Beer, and RIDE!


We think this Six Pack Bike Bag by Donkey is beyond COOL! We are all about biking and whether your bike is your main mode of transportation or simply recreational, you need to be prepared for after work gatherings, house parties, and keeping your fridge stocked at home! Forget lugging around heavy bottles or having to attach a basket to the front or back of your bike. Simply attach the Bike Bag on your bike and fill with six of your favorite bevvies. Personally, I’m going IPA all the way! And waiting for all of those holiday party invites!
