Spring feeling

Monday, March 9th, 2015

Spoons by Marie Eklund, ceramics by Karin Eriksson, Monkey poster by Walnut & Walrus.

It’s a beautiful sunny and warm spring day in Stockholm today. I treasure hearing the gravel under my feet on the dry pavement, not having to worry that I’ll slide and trip on the ice that is usually there during winters here in Sweden.

Papier macher birds by Sara Hjelmstedt, Paper cutting by Ida Björs.

It’s spring in the shop too, with new window displays and a brand new clothes line for manos – welcome Nygårdsanna!

I’ll have to tell you more about the amazing spoons that you can see in the photo at the top, but that’ll have to wait until another day – and not a month, I promise ;)


Tadá, here’s the result!

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Today has been a shop-day (as opposed to a workshop-day or a little-of-both-day). I’ve been dusting and wiping and hoovering and re-displaying. Tadá, here’s the result!

I’ve blended in the range of Edition Paumes that arrived yesterday – Copenhagen Apartments, Paris Creative Couples and Kawaii Stores Stockholm to mention just a few and all lovely of course.

Now I wish you all a happy, relaxed weekend! Ciao, Karin

a small bouquet of hellebore

Friday, January 7th, 2011

We’ve re-displayed at manos and are welcoming 2011 with blissfully light and spare window displays – see them here. The hellebore are still beautiful as a small bouquet.

another Karin

I have excellent help at manos these days – another Karin started working with me three weeks ago. Not only is she a great help, she’s also lovely company. Today we re-displayed the shop windows, see them all at manos facebook page.

In the left hand window we have a selection of childrens clothes that are visiting from web-shop Nuno & Dudo. Hand-knitted dresses and cardigans from Shirley Bredal and eco-certified clothes knitted in merino wool from swiss Selana. Nuno & Dudo will be our guests until Christmas.

manos in japanese!

manos is now available in Japanese! The anonymous writer will be writing about the shop and it’s surroundings.

My friend Pia came to the shop the other day and took some press images, above is one and the rest are here.

Bigger shop desk.

Today the manos logo was added to the shop desk. One by one, things are falling into place. Here’s another of the three display windows.

the sign

Bigger sign.

The new sign is up, now I’m just waiting for the lights to come on in the shop as well – eagerly awaiting the electricians!

vases and flower pots

Friday, April 30th, 2010

I let the Stem vases out onto the blue table when I was re-displaying at manos the other day. They looked so lovely!

I’ve got a new batch of hanging flower pots which will be in the shop on Monday!
