The Return of our Sidewalk Sale

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Sidewalk Sale, but we think you’ll find it’s been worth the wait. It’s happening right outside our shop, inside the 401 Richmond building. Swing by this week and check out some of the biggest deals we’ve ever had on offer.




Make & Give: A Book Launch


Here at Swipe, we’ve always considered ourselves on the fringe of the craft movement. Steph Hung and Erin Jang are pretty well in the middle of it. Their mutual love of making gifts for friends and family resulted in their brand-new book, Make & Give: Simple and Modern Crafts to Brighten Every Day. Creative, fun, thoughtful, cute but not cutesy, and very nicely designed (which, let’s face it, we always like), it’s a bit of bright and cheery all wrapped up in nice and easy.

On Wednesday 22 October at 6 p.m. we’ll be launching Make & Give in the Urbanspace Gallery right next to Swipe. There’ll be cookies, craft demos with the authors, a Q&A, books to buy and more. (And did we mention cookies?)

Swing by and join us!

Great design books and products. From Advertising to Architecture to Urbanism.
