YOUR Wrecked Journal in OUR ABC window?

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

Dear Keri Smith fans,

Want to show Amsterdam (and the world) your proudly destroyed Wreck This Journal in our special I WRECKED MY JOURNAL window this October? Have you shared your wrecking online? Want to win a copy of the new Wreck This Journal Everywhere?

We need 12 of you to be gutsy enough to show your creative wrecked journals! Email social@abc.nl your name and age, and send us a picture of your diary and favorite wrecked page.

We made a We Love Keri Smith window a few years ago with her help. We are trying to have her feature your work on her blog – fingers crossed!

ABC’s Gift Ideas: Cooking, Crafts, Fashion

Monday, November 4th, 2013

The gift-giving season is upon us – hooray!

The ABC Staff has rummaged through their sections and order lists, and come up with another year’s worth of wonderful gift ideas for you: from fiction to history to cookbooks to children’s books to travel to non-books and onwards.

In a series of blog posts and recommendation lists throughout the coming month, you will find what we think will make great gifts, whether you celebrate Sinterklaas, Christmas or just like giving books to people. And since we’re a bookstore, these posts will be alphabetical by subject. :-)

Today you’ll find gift ideas for Cooking, Crafts and Fashion as picked out by section buyers Pleun, Simone, Sophie, Nyjolene and Jesse. Bear in mind that this is just the tip of the iceberg – come to either one of our stores to browse many, many more titles in any of these subjects.

We are ready as ever to be your personal shoppers again this year, and hope you will find our selections useful and inspiring!

You can find our gift ideas from previous years here (scroll down a bit pas 2013), and be sure to have a look at our ABC Favorites, too.
