Money raised will go to the Ashinaga Ikuie which is an association that helps and supports children who lost their parents in the recent earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan.

This is Star, our four legged star of the week. Very beautiful she was too.


...thank you Walter, it was LOVELY.
( and though it was difficult, I did share! ).

Let Your Heart Have A Say

We will also have this lovely print in the shop tomorrow, produced especially to celebrate Ryantown's 3rd Birthday!!!

A signed and numbered edition of 200, the print is £160 unframed.

Do You Remember...

...when we walked arm in arm around the narrow cobbled streets? The sun high and hot that summer afternoon. That day that belonged to us and us alone. Do you remember the small shops we visited and the lunch we shared? That day will stay with me forever. "I think we could be happy here" you said...
...not realising that we already were.

This beautiful print, in an edition of 200, is one of two brand new prints that will be available in Ryantown this weekend.

There is another lovely story about Rob on my favourite blog today. With lots of great images too, including this one.


...and this is Lola. We were definitely spoilt this weekend with Loulou and Lola, two extremely stylish ( neckerchiefs de rigueur ) and entertaining dogs.


This is Loulou, a beautifully groomed bundle of energy who came bounding into the shop and entertained us all with her squeaky toy ball.

*note to self. Remember to measure the space in the window BEFORE buying the largest planter in the shop...


We have a few of these lovely new mugs in the shop right now. Also, a few of a design we haven't had for a little while, 'everything is going to be ok'.
All of the ceramic mugs we sell in Ryantown are printed by hand and come packaged in a very special screen printed box.

Camberwell Illustration Students

If you happen to be passing by Columbia Road during the week, please do call in to Ryantown and take a look at the work on show of six 2nd Year Illustration students from Camberwell College of Arts.
Open Tuesday 14th to Thursday 16th only, between 1pm and 6pm.

East End Flypast

We were pretty excited on Saturday when the Red Arrows flew right over Columbia Road on their way to Buckingham Palace for the Queen's birthday celebrations.
I was so shocked at how old I was on my last birthday, I just couldn't bring myself to celebrate. But a Red Arrows flypast might have made all the difference....
Anyway, we have another birthday to look forward to very soon. Ryantown will be 3 years old!!


Brand new in the shop are these gorgeous ceramic money boxes, printed by hand in the studio and packaged in a lovely box.

C'mon, Get Happy

Ryantown TOUR BUS SUMMER 2011

As soon as I saw this fantastic new t shirt design I thought of David Cassidy, my first big love, and how much I just wanted to run away and get on board that Partridge Family bus....well, that never happened.

Modelled here beautifully by Michelle, they are brand new and available in Ryantown this weekend. I love these t shirts and I'm sure you will too, but if there is any uncertainty at all, just ponder these words of the great man himself,

"hey, couldn't I live without it? well I think so, on the other hand I doubt it".

Watering cans

It's so lovely to be back in the shop again, especially on Sundays, surrounded all day by beautiful plants. And I see that the flower market trading hours have been extended to 4pm now.
Luckily we have a few of these watering cans in the shop at the moment. Just what you need to keep all your flower market beauties looking perky.
