We also like shopping for the good stuff. So clearly there was only one thing for us to do. Make a shop. Our own shop. It opens its yellow door on Thursday the 10th of November 2011.
We’re very new to retail, so please be gentle with us as we get it all up and going (remind me, what’s the magic button that makes the cash drawer open? hmmm, what does that cost again? how does this barcode printy thingy work?).
What we do know for sure though, is that designery goodness is arriving daily just for you. Months of research resulted in an ace mix of artwares, stationery and designer knick-knacks from far and near, some as near as the studio and letterpress workshop that share the same digs. We like products made by independent designers, artists and craftspersons. We especially like it when the same person or group that designs the products also make the products and there is happiness and heart involved from start to finish.
You will finally be able to peruse our own Mitchell & Dent paperwares without the need to make an appointment. You’ll find more stationery stocked too, including the work of the very clever Anna Bond from Rifle Paper Co. in the US, limited edition letterpress notebooks by Serrote in Portugal and very cheeky cards by The Regional Assembly of Text in Canada.
The Studio Bomba shop is an exclusive Australian stockist of Nikki McWilliams biscuit-y cushions from Scotland, ceramics by JeezVanilla! from Spain and porcelain jewellery by Me Me Me from the UK. Lots of clever recycled products too, such as Hoooked Zpagetti yarns made from the remnants of new garments and Helveticus’ bags made from vintage Swiss Army blankets and super soft leathers.
