"X" ....


           marks the spot!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I love a good pirate - think Johnny Depp - so today I thought I'd share with you some particularly stylish pirate products from the awesome people at 826 Valencia.

From fantastic -

posters -

for your walls -

to all sorts of other -

interesting paraphernalia -

all your swashbuckling needs are covered at this one stop pirate shop!

My favourite piece though is this amazing print -

I love it! Surely I can find a spare wall for it?

I am a big fan of the 826 National. I have both  the "Advancement of Time" and "Vintage Time Travel" series of posters from 826LA at my place and they look fantastic. 826 National are a not for profit organisation which is dedicated to helping children in America improve their writing skills. They have eight locations across the states, each of which features a different retail experience. Profits from all sales are put back into the organisation - nice!  

Happy Wednesday - maybe I have tempted you into releasing your inner buccaneer?

  1. Hello Stephie:
    And where does one go from here? Straight to Long John Silver of 'Treasure Island' perhaps, or even 'Peter Pan' with the dastardly Captain Hook, but never, as far as we are aware, with the looks of Johnny Depp.

    Have a fun day on the high seas!

  2. You are right Jane and Lance - I don't think anyone makes as good looking a pirate as Mr Depp. Pirates all around the world should be thanking him for transforming their image!

    I will! Talk soon, Stephie x

  6. Right?! There is something dangerously sexy about a pirate. Love your collection of items. Hope you find that spare wall (I am always saying the same thing).


  7. We've got the Missing Limbs poster - we bought it in San Fran, it's such a cool store! I liked the beards are the new black as well,
