There can be no more denying it, Christmas is upon us. Here at the Carnaby St store we are stocking the Surfers Against Sewage Chrsitmas Cards, illustrated by Kate Sutton (www.katesutton.co.uk).

SAS also campaign to protect surf spots from environmental damage, negative impacts on wave quality and to safeguard recreational water users right of access." - www.sas.org.uk

The cards help raise money for SAS's cause, and on the back of each card there is some information on marine pollution and how to support SAS further.

Wee Do Recap – Wil Gritten

On Tuesday night Wil Gritten came in to give a talk on his new book, Letting Go, about his travels through South America. He spoke about about facing fear, hard work and happiness, as well as reading some bits of the book (complete with convincing Venezuelan accents).

It turned out Wil was facing one of his fears in doing the talk, but it ended up being a relaxed, funny and enlightening evening. Even the dogs loved it.

Thanks go out to Wil, Parthian Publishing and everyone who came down to the shop to see it. Hope to see you at the next one!

Carnaby supports OK Go

If you are a howies blog regular, you’ll already know that the Carnaby section of our company has a slightly obsessive appreciation for anything dog related. We’ve got books, puzzles, PDSA cuddly toys and several animal rescue sites bookmarked for easy access. I thought we were approaching any dog lover’s limit.

Then OK Go stepped it up with their new video.

We have some catching up to do.


Wil Gritten Wee Do - This Tuesday!

One of Wales’ sexiest men, Wil Gritten, has flown back from his Bondi Beach pad for a whirlwind UK tour. Wil, who has modelled all over the world for some of the biggest fashion houses, was once voted Wales’ 13th sexiest man by the Western Mail. But all that posing is behind him. Now he grows organic vegetables, surfs and makes weird music. He also writes books, in which he talks about his travels and confesses his secrets. Letting Go is one of the first four titles in an exciting new series...

Wil says goodbye to his family and friends in North Wales, and hello to adventure in South America, heading into the unknown, away from comfort and predictability in a bid to ‘let go’. From the beach he lives on with only a stray dog for company, to his final destination with its tearful goodbyes, Wil shares the joys and the trials of his search for freedom of the soul. He talks candidly of friendships, drugs, sex, politics, of the fear and elation he experiences along the way, of how dangerously close ‘letting go’ can come to ‘losing it’ when the boundary between exploration and hedonism becomes blurred. 

This is no ordinary series of books. To start with, all four authors are pretty damn young (and also, possibly, pretty, young, and damned). Before they’d turned thirty, they had each approached Parthian with their manuscripts, which varied in style and genre, but were all examples of exceptional literary talent. The Bright Young Things series was born.

7.30 pm Tuesday 21st of September, howies Carnaby Street.. pop down to hear Wil talk of his travels and adventures, we have organic beer and juices, and plenty of chairs to perch on. Tickets are free as usual but give us a ring on 0207 287 2345 or drop us an email [email protected] to reserve your place.
