Etsy finds

Gosh, I love etsy - I could spend hours looking at things, there are so many talented people out there! If all goes to plan my Kickcan & Conkers store will be open for business on etsy at the end of July. I can't wait, I've got some lovely vintage toys, games, books and artwork for you, mostly thrifted in France and in England over the years. I'll keep you informed of any shop developments, so please look out for updates. Until then, check out these bold and colourful music programmes from the 60s available here. I think they'd look lovely framed.

Talking of penguins...

Inspired by the latest edition of LMNOP magazine dedicated to the alphabet, I wanted to share these beautiful educational prints with you.

I came across Made with Love by Mrs Booth whilst reading about the Kids Modern show in London. I love her simple, colourful designs, and I am particularly taken with her frameable
bespoke name cards, alphabet
friezes and fun colouring books in pastel shades. One to look out for!

Saperlipopette voilà Enfantillages ! (part 2)

We always have a fantastic time at the festival, and, and as an added bonus, bring home one of Albane Romagnoli’s fun posters to expand our collection. Beautiful aren’t they?

Saperlipopette voilà Enfantillages ! (part 1)

Montpellier’s summer season opens in May with the Saperlipopette voilà Enfantillages! cultural festival for young ones and the young at heart. The festival takes place over two weekends in the beautiful surroundings of the Chateau d’O, before travelling around local villages in the region. The kids love it – they can watch plays, mingle with street performers, discover school and professional artwork, listen to stories, play musical instruments and even try out their circus skills under the big top before picnicking in the olive groves. C'est génial !
