Announcement    Welcome to Quirky to the Core, the home of a selection of quirky gift ideas including Mansacks, the gift sacks for men, Tyne for a Drink range and my Once, twice, three wines a lady range, more items will soon be uploaded to the shop.

This shop was all about the Mansacks and a few other gifts until September 27th 2019, I realised that I have much more than just the Mansacks and it makes more sense to link both of my Etsy shops together and make one Etsy shop.


Where did the business begin?

I came up with the idea for Mansacks in late 2013, I had organised a small event and found that I didn't have many stalls with gifts for Men, so the Mansack was born.

I used to iron transfers onto potato sacks to make the Mansack, I went through so many sacks as sometimes the transfers were a success and sometime they weren't!

I now print each label individually and then hand sew them onto the sacks, my Home Economics teacher would be proud!

These sacks make a great way to present gifts to the Men in your life, whether it be for a Birthday, Anniversary or wedding. There are endless possibilities. They can be for women too.

They can be personalised at no extra cost.

All designs are my own or they are my ideas which have been turned into designs by talented folks, for my Tyne for a Drink range, a talented man called Doug Dawson turned my pencil sketch of the Bridges and the words into a beautiful design, which I use on quite a few different products now
Thank you and if you have any questions please do message me.

Take care
Louise
