Harrington and Squires

February 24, 2010

The new Notonthehighstreet catalogue has just arrived in the office and it’s packed full of lovely home accessories crafted by clever people. One of my favourite new buys is this fabulous set of shopping list magnets from letterpress lovelies, Harrington and Squires.

If you put them on the fridge, you can grab a reminder magnet as soon as you run out of something and start making a list. Love it. But yes, from these pics it looks as though these magnets are just for food, so if you run out of toilet paper, foil or anything else inedible, you’re going to have to make a note. Then again, unless you have a magnetic handbag/dog or a removable fridge door, you’re going to have to jot the whole lot down on paper anyway before you hit Tesco. I’d still like a set though. Surely this idea could be adapted for all sorts of lists. How about Nag Magnets? These don’t exist. Yet. I just made them up at lunchtime.

These would save me a small fortune in post-it notes! – Ellie
