Back to School with Hop of Hackney!

Back to School with Hop of Hackney!


The leaves are turning Golden and beginning to fall, the days are slowly getting shorter. It can only mean one thing... Time to stock up on back to school supplies!! Oh and of course a beautiful new season is almost upon us. As a child the only saving grace to going back to school after six weeks off was being allowed to walk into a stationary store and stock up on all my favourite back to school supplies.

   "... I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address..."

- Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail.

As an adult who has no real need for school supplies, this is still a September tradition that is very much part of my life... The smell of freshly sharpened pencils has a similar affect on me as freshly cut grass for some. So a whole bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils would just be divine. Hmmm... one day.


We now have a back to school display in store!!!! With stationary, satchels, lunch boxes, planners and more. Ideal for school supplies as school starts this week or adults who like myself feel it would be criminal to NOT have a selection of quirky new stationary in September. 

Over the next 18 months, writers in school years 5-10 will have the opportunity to win the Hackney Young Writers award. Where Hop of Hackney will aim to find the best YOUNG WRITER within the Kings Park + Lea Bridge Wards...because its our manor!   So if you're in school years 5-10 and need to get the writing juices flowing pop in store to stock up on some new writing supplies.
