Quirky design ideas

At 44 we're always looking out for new quirky designs and we're really excited to have these in the shop. A ceramic noodle cup to eliminate the need for plastic disposable cups, a balsa wood plane kit in postcard form to write on and post to a friend, an adorable little polar bear bath plug and a massively oversized sharpener to store your pencils in.....brilliant! I'm sure more of these amazing ideas from Suck UK and Propaganda will be popping up in 44 in the future.

New shop layout!

Ta-dah! the new counter is in place and we've re-jigged the shop layout a bit to give us more space. We'll hopefully be having a new display unit built soon where the old desk used to be. Then we'll have loads more space to display all the stationery, hooray!

happy hour

Look what we found on ebay...a 1970s G-plan bar! It'll make a perfect counter for the shop, with an illuminated shelf at the front to display little badges, bits of jewellery and flyers on. Anyone fancy a cocktail?
