post No.731 Recent Tweets

From time to time I share a few things on the blog that I’ve posted on twitter and instagram lately.

Opening time at Urbanic.

New pens! dying over the mint.

Bundle of patterned wraps.

Definitely feels like summertime in the shop.

I had the honor of standing under this ceiling last week.

A snapshot from the Mom Inc. event last month at Urbanic

Hope all of you are well! I’m so excited to announce that the pictures and video from the Summer Social will be going up tomorrow on 100LayerCake. JUST wait until you see them!





post No.724 a Sneak Peek at Smock’s latest.

As many of you already know we’re gearing up to have our friends from Smock come visit us from NY tomorrow night for the Summer Social! Along with a really fun postcard d.i.y project sponsored by them, we’ll be showcasing their newest collection of paper goods.  We’re all kind of freaking out around here about how pretty everything is, so I had to give you guys a little sneak peek!

See you by the snow cones,



post No.721 Father’s Day Gift Guide…

Father’s Day is June 17th, so we’ve got all the DAD’s in mind around here in the shop these days. That being said we have an entire wall full of the coolest father’s day cards you have ever seen. We’ve also picked out a selection of fine gifty things for your fathers, your husbands, and even your grandpas. Check out our gift guide below! If you can’t make it over to Abbot Kinney in time, give us a call and we’ll ship it out to you.

post No.717 The Ridge Collection

The ‘Ridge’ collection of men’s stationery by Wednesday is definitely some of the coolest guys cards I have seen in my history of ordering cards! The collection is divided up by type of guy. Shown below are –  The Dapper Gentleman (pic 2)  The Traveler (pic 4) and The Creative (pic 6) but there are also cards for The Outdoorsman and The Intellectual which you can see  here. I have this order coming just in time for Father’s Day so I’ve mixed a few of those into the set as well. Pretty handsome, wouldn’t you say?

post No.695 Make My Notebook

Hello Parcel Post readers. It’s a new day and a new week! Hopefully whatever part of the world you are reading this in, you’re feeling a little bit of spring. Our latest photo shoot from around the shop is of these new notebooks we recently got in. This line is awesome because each notebook is hand printed. As an extra bonus, the pages inside alternate between college ruled and graph paper which is (if you’re anything like me) HUGE for daily creativity and list making.

post No.694 shop window: spring 1.

I wanted to share some pics with you from our latest store window before it gets switched out tomorrow. Inspired by our set-up at The Cream event, we went with fun pops of neon and an overall explosion of bright colors.  If you’ve been on Abbot Kinney as of late, you will find it is really hard to miss!

A special thanks to my awesome dad whose garden inspired the fabric circles (he made them for us!!) and to Court, Kay and Mo for their mad skills.
