Angus & Celeste are very excited to be heading out and about next week to the Finders Keepers Melbourne! Carve out some time in your busy Grand Final weekend festivities to come and say hello. Known for our classic hanging planters, plant pots and vases, this Finders Keepers we will also be giving you a sneak peek at some of our new products, that are due for release in November. We will also be saying goodbye to some of our back catalogue designs, so there could be some bargains- you never know your luck! Welcoming the onset of spring, the store will be alive with colours, plants and pots, sure to inspire the green thumb in everyone. The Finders Keepers is sure to be an awesome weekend out!
Bespoke Letterpress is traveling from Sydney to Melbourne Finders Keepers with a great big jumbo stall full of letterpress loveliness! We print the beautifully old fashioned way using lush 100% cotton papers, all hand printed on our family of big old printing presses. We will have all of our stationery favourites, as well as lots of new goodies – including new foil printed stationery, hand dyed silk ribbon and our brand new collection of double sided gift wrap fresh off the press!
We are also excited to be launching our 2015 Christmas range – all handprinted with stunning letterpress and foil, it is pretty spectacular, and we can’t wait to show this range for the first time! Make sure you pop by, caress our lovely letterpress, and say hi to this bunch of paper obsessed printing nerds!
