welcome! It’s been a while since our Jolly Winter Issue, but here we are again, just as proud to present our brand new Poppinette Magazine to you. This Bright Issue is all about bright colours, fresh flowers and new life. And about us, enjoying this new way of sharing our creative enthusiasm with you. Poppinette Magazine hopes to inspire you to go a little bit crazy - the creative way, that is - in your own home. Or you can just sit back & have a look at what Poppinette likes & makes.

With this Bright Issue, we are proud to launch our brand new Poppinette App for iPad & iPhone. But of course you can still read the Magazine on your laptop or computer as well. Read & enjoy Poppinette Magazine for free. That’s what we like to do for you. Is there anything you can do for us, you say? Don’t hesitate, it’s easy: share the good news with your creative friends, of course!

With love,

Time is never as attractive as when it seems to stand still. Exactly this is what Time Capsules help you do: create the perfect time-out for someone who’s dear to you. This is how it works: you buy the box & get a ‘goodie bag’ with paper, labels and tape for free. You collect the perfect keepsakes for the person you wish to surprise. You wrap and label everything. You write a perfect little letter or card. You seal the box, only to be opened on the date you mark on the seal. It’s time in a box. Just the kind of personal gift we like.

THE PERFECT GIFT SHOP FOR THOSE WHO HAVE IT ALL Need a gift for a child, friend, sister, husband, wife, father, mother, yes even for the most critical sort of mother-in-law? We’re sure you can find it here among the toys, books, jewels, accessories and other stuff that doesn’t really fit in to any of these categories, but is still nice to look at, give or get. Poppinette bought a first little gift for – back then – yet-to-be-born niece Louisa: milestone baby cards! Results to be seen soon @poppinette.com &Klevering Amsterdam - Haarlemmerstraat 8
