Store Bits: free totes, event pics, blogs, notebooks and store dogs!

Great news for all Katie Fforde fans: if you buy one of her books, like A Vintage Wedding, or another ‘chick lit’ title, you get this adorable Katie Fforde tote for free!

As long as stock lasts of the tote, of course, so come sooner rather than later, we say.  Also, Ester and her radiant smile are not included, sorry, just the tote.  🙂


Two ABC in the Wild events to show you pics of:

Lynn @ Dag van het Grote VerhaalMartijn @ Nutshuis Feb. 2016

On the left you can see Lynn smiling at the Dag van het Grote Verhaal.  On the right it’s Martijn at the Fotoboek! at the Nutshuis last weekend.  Always great to have these two representing ABC!


I meant to say this a few weeks ago, but I got caught up in the December Madness and the ensuing Great January Recovery.  So, a few days late and a few dollars short, but Hello Readiculously Peachy!  *wave*

Click on over there and say hello to Florentine, who runs this YA fiction blog.  She’s currently living in The Hague after quite an international life.  Who knows, her reviews might just point you in the direction of your next favorite read!


We had a milestone last week:  our Simone’s 100th handmade ABC notebook!

Simone's handmade notebook #100


They are available in both stores (in The Hague in the bookcase against the stairs, and in Amsterdam in the White Room).  Of course, you can have a look at her site, too, if you want to see what else she can craft!  Every single item is made by hand, and unique.


And finally, who can resist ABC The Hague’s store dog Koki?  Never mind that he’s as big as a baby elephant and weighs about the same… 😉  Many thanks to our Iris, who snapped this picture of him.
