Animal Party





Really excited to announce that Elphick’s will soon be stocking the work of the Sweden based illustrator Ingela P Arrhenius, whose illustrations are inspired by her love of 50’s and 60’s art and design. I think these prints would make a welcome addition to any child’s room. I have placed the order and will let you know just as soon as they arrive.

New Print by James Brown

May 9, 2012


James Brown ‘The Wick’ £50. Available here.

In his own words…

“Hackney Wick was referred to in a 1976 episode of Dr Who as “A mudpatch in the middle of nowhere.” Thirty six years later and the whole world is coming to town!

Well, they will be next-door at least, and like a snooty neighbour they seem to want to shield us from view.

Without contravening any Olympic regulations by putting the word ‘LONDON’ next to ‘2012’ I have created a print which celebrates the ‘unsightly industrial area’ that has more going for it than any tourist or sports fan will ever get to know about”.

Wayne Pate ‘Contemplating Hockney’.

Delighted to announce that Elphick’s are soon to be stocking a selection of prints by the New York based artist and illustrator Wayne Pate. I’m a big fan so I’m very excited.

I have been buying bags from Paul at Gardners since I opened the shop five years ago. There are plenty of places where I could shop for my sundries but not one of them would be able to provide the service I get from Paul.

When I first started buying from him my orders were small and I would visit his premises on Commercial Street. Being a bit of a neat freak I was always suprised that he knew where anything was in what seemed like chaos to me. Piles upon piles of bags leaving very limited space to stand.

As my business grew so did my need for bags and Paul very kindly offered to deliver at no extra cost. He now regularly delivers on a Friday, having only received a phone call a couple of hours previously.

I have come to enjoy our Friday chats about his boys, their love of stock car racing, music and karate amongst other things.

Paul is one of the nicest chaps you could wish to meet, he never seems hassled, always has a smile and is happy to help. That’s why I would never consider buying sundries anywhere else.

James Brown has designed Paul a flyer to help promote his business and a limited edition print (featured above) which is available here.

There is a fantastic article written about the history of Gardners on the blog Spitalfields Life. For further reading click here.

Pompadour Press

We are now stocking this beautiful card range by Joanne Kernan of Pompadour Press. For the moment they are only available in-store. Using sustainable wood veneer (apart from Ma Cherie), they are little artworks in their own right. I think these would look lovely in a box frame and at £4.75 each would make a very affordable addition to your home.
