Back To School with TIX on the Square

Posted on: August 25 2021

TIX on the Square is a great place for souvenirs and gifts, but it is also the place where you can find functional pieces for day-to-day activities. When shopping for back to school this year, think about supporting your local artists and small businesses first. 



Looking for something to carry your textbooks, binders, notebooks and other school supplies? Check out this locally designed tote from @agpoondesign that will fit all your studying needs. Notebooks and sketchbooks from local artists like @thecollectivescribble, @cyanotypepaper, and @wilfredwk, will make writing notes and studying something to look forward to. Add some flair with pins, like these from @archive_boutique and @albertapinco.



Personalizing your school supplies is always the best part of getting ready to go back to school. TIX has a variety of fun stickers to brighten up your binders! From cat stickers illustrated by @gloriaho_draws and a food and drink sticker pack from @bareitdesigns, your laptop and binders will be fashionably covered.



This year, why not make your locker stand out amongst the others with these bright, colourful and fun magnets of your favourite Edmonton landmarks and Alberta flora and fauna. Local artists @crystaldriedger, @snow_alligator and @stephanie.illustrates are featured here.



Shopping for back-to-school isn’t complete without some new clothes for the fall/winter season. Support one of our local university student organizations @dsoyeg by purchasing one of their sweatshirts at our shop or keep your ears warm with a toque from @flannelfoxes.



Located on the southwest corner of Churchill Square, TIX on the Square is a not-for-profit box office and gift shop owned and operated by the Edmonton Arts Council.

TIX staff will help you navigate the city's thriving entertainment scene to discover local events such as concerts, plays, festivals, lectures and fundraisers. In-store, you can find unique gifts that reflect Edmonton's story and landscape with locally made photography, clothing, books, music, art, and fine craft, including jewellery and pottery.
