2011 Calendar round-up

It's early, I know, but we've had our 2011 calendars out on the shelves for less than a month and they are selling quick! Now that we're in a bigger space with a lot more regular foot traffic, we've had to reconsider the number of different calendars we carry, which means more options for you... or for some of you, a much tougher decision. Below are pics of the calendars currently on our shelves and at the very bottom there are some sneak peeks of the calendars we expect in-store in a couple of weeks.

First up, our absolute favorite and a 2010 best seller for us, a wall calendar by Linda & Harriett. All the designs are hand-illustrated and printed by owner, designer, printer, and soon-to-be mother, Liz. The best part about the calendar is that the back side of each page/month has a postcard printed on it so that when the month or year is up you can trim off the bottom pattern and send a loved one an adorable note! $32

Snow & Graham's famous floral illustrations make up their bold wall calendar and adorable desk version. $26/wall + $18/desk

Waste Not Paper (parent company to Paper-Source) took a page out of Linda & Harriett's playbook this year by creating a calendar with a dual purpose. The back side of each month has a template for a DIY project such as creating a file folder, flat note cards with matching envelopes and various shaped boxes. We love that this calendar is not only recyclable, but reusable too! $28

Our most exciting new calendar this year is by Portland, Maine company, BG2770 Design. And by "company" I mean a 2 person design team. We love carrying goods from local artists, but as you know we are very picky about what we carry in the store. This calendar fits our aesthetic perfectly as all of the bold illustrations are done by Ben and Gergana and it's printed on half as many sheets as our other calendar - a different month on each side. $26

Here's a sneak peek at a few more fabulous calendars that we'll receive in the next couple of weeks. Once they're on the shelves we'll be sure to blog about them in more detail!
