Oh We Do Like to be Beside the Quayside..

...Or anywhere located in the mighty north east to be honest with you. And to celebrate the launch of two - yes two! - new North East inspired posters, we're taking a look at what makes this wonderful place where BALTIC Shop is located so darn irresistible. Or, if we may be so bold, so blumming mint! Read More...

Thanks, Teach!

Thanks Teach, Blog Header

Hot days, hundreds of school activities, ridiculously tired children and increasingly
frazzled parents. It can only mean one thing - school is nearly out for the summer!
And if you are a parent - between rustling up costumes for the school play, taking
more hours off work then you're actually putting in, arranging childcare for SIX
weeks and working out which child is where at what time for whatever - you'll
suddenly have a realisation. You need a gift for the teacher! Read More >>

A Great Northern Catch Up with Andy Tuohy (and Romney the Cat!)

With the Great Exhibition of the North now entering its 5th wonderful week, we decided we'd given designer Andy Tuohy enough time to recuperate from designing his epic Great Northern Alphabet and it was time to bother him again for a quick catch up and pick his brains on his design process, what inspired him about this commission and his plans for the summer (because we're nosy...!)  Read more...

Don't forget your Toothbrush!

Holidays are coming! Oh, wrong season.. And we know we don't actually sell toothbrushes... But, when the usual holiday purchases have been sorted, there's always time to add something a bit more special into your case that's just for you. And, as our lovely BALTIC Shop team are looking ahead to their jollies over the next few weeks, we thought we'd have a sneaky peak in their suitcases, back packs and handbags to see what holiday treats they are packing from the Shop this year to add some added va va voom to their vacation.

House P-Arty!

House P-Arty Blog

When it comes to humour and art, the two names that always spring to mind at BALTIC Shop are the devillish David Shrigley and the Mighty Martin Parr. As famous as both this artist and photographer are globally, their work still retains something essentially, unmistakably British; including sarcasm, being self deprecating and getting away with being gloriously silly. And along with clever, subversive art comes clever and quirky gifts and, fortunately for us, both artists have collaborated with respected galleries and designers to create cool homewares which can be nostalgic, insanely dark, full of pathos and laugh out loud funny all at the same time. We've put together a few of our favourite arty things to cheer you up, help you to reminisce or shock you a little bit - enjoy! And as Shrigley would say, These are not for idiots! Read More..

To Dave's the Day!

There is nothing like a Dave! While putting our awesome new t-towel of Dave Grohl on the online shop the other day, we all got talking about Dave's. Everyone, it seems, knows a Dave (or David if it's Sunday or they're at the Dentist's) and, by and large, the Dave's that people know are pretty cool and decent blokes. So, for no particular reason at all apart from the title made us laugh, we're having a Dave Day. Read More..
