#30IN30 – DAY #14 – TUCK

Hey everyone! #30in30 continues – today with Uptown Saint John’s newest design and decor studio – TUCK! Of course TUCK is not new to Saint John, but in April of this year, the studio moved from level 0 of Judith & Robert’s home on Autumn Street to the tall ceilings and historic architecture of 122 Prince William Street.

Judith Mackin, one of my dearest friends, owns the most amazing studio. She has amazing staff (Sarah, Alex, Heather & Joshua). She has amazing style (seriously she get to ELLA moments before me every time and steals my size). She carries amazing products.

As you’ll see from the gift ideas below, there’s something for everyone at TUCK. Especially me. you can literally buy me anything from here. 🙂


When you walk into TUCK – you’ll see a lovely set up, meant to look like a Christmas Market. This set up features two of my very favourite things at TUCK – Alison Gayton and Darren Emeneau’s pottery.

I bought a hang up from Brothers Dressler when TUCK opened 4 years ago.

Hang Ups are composed of found wood, scrap material, salvaged hardware and upcycled automotive parts. My hangup is still featured on their website (link above). It’s the only thing I have on the wall in my bedroom and I love it.

If I was to go out on a limb and suggest one thing that you pick up this Christmas Season – it would be this:

Chris Lloyd – has designed these delightful metallic silk screen manhole covers (if we’re being specific – they’re actually valve chamber covers but I’ll let him away with it). They’re mounted on wood and can hang on the wall. They’re about 8″ in diameter.

If you’re not interested in something this shape/size, there are also 8 x 10″ screen prints available and they are fantastic. TUCK posted an instagram video about it this week (click here for the video).

It is the perfect gift for someone who loves Saint John – whether they’re here or away. It’s my #1 top pick.
