Sometimes I stumble across a company and just know that we were meant to be together. This is totally how I felt when I discovered Knot and Bow.  These creative gift wrapping supplies are gonna fill a perfect little niche at Urbanic, offering you all lots more ways to make pretty packaging.  (definitely on a theme this week)  Below are some of their lovelies coming into the shop…

I often find myself inspired when I see people get creative with things we offer in the shop. For example, we sell these cute rubber stamps pictured below, how genius is it to decorate gift wrap with them?

We sell lots of Japanese washi masking tape … but I never thought to make bunting out of it!

Loving these smart paper + wrap inventions. If you have any pics of your own creations, send them over. I want to post a master creative guide.

I’m bursting with excitement to announce that we now carry Anthology magazine at Urbanic! For those of you unfamiliar, it’s a quarterly shelter mag that covers the freshest in home decor, travel, design and entertaining. Very good stuff, but you need to come in and see for yourselves. We Just put them out on the floor and they are still a little warm (like just baked cookies) as they are right off the press.

P.S read more about the founders here

New in the shop are these baked goods label sets from Girl of All Work. I’m in serious risk of being ‘all talk’ right now with my baking promises, so I hereby declare I will be baking something sweet (and label worthy) by this Friday February 18th. There, I said it, now it has to happen.



P.S the last pic is from the apothecary inspired collection but in my opinion still falls under the category of label love.
