I tried to plan in advance for Christmas but as a first time Christmas buyer, and only 3 months in to a new business, I had no idea what to expect. Luckily I’ve had lots of speedy suppliers and designers madly making and dropping off lots of last minute orders to keep the store stocked. It’s awesome to see so many people are out shopping on Roncesvalles supporting all the new and old businesses. I’ve said it before and will say it again, I’m so grateful to be a part of such a supportive community.
Now let’s get you up to speed with some of the new things in the shop that could be that perfect gift you’ve been searching for.
How awesome are these?! Retro inspired Iphone cases!
Hand knit booties by local and lovely Baby Vintage Revival. Available in 0-6 months and 6-12 months.
Everyone has a Moleskine junky in their lives. Scout now stocks their notebooks as well as 2012 Agendas!
Lovely scented bubble baths, shea butter lip balms, and these great little gifts sets are all made in France! Ooh La La!
Kristen from Knotted Nest just dropped off a great new selection of her re-purposed fabric coasters, wallets and passport covers. Good gift ideas for travelers, hostesses and the wallets even come in great neutral/manly fabrics.
The Matroyshka we all love also comes in this pretty drinking carafe, perfect for your nightstand. Also fully stocked with Matroyshka measuring cups again!
So excited to have local Touch the Dutch in the shop! She has a seriously innovative way of designing Canadiana jewelery that doesn’t have the cheese factor. Here’s one of my favourite coat pins, yes it’s a lumberjack, and yes it’s awesome. Good for the ladies and the lads.
Perfect book for the crafty/artsy/creative type. Tons of awesome stencils designed by Ed Roth.
Beautiful Ash and Maple cutting boards, as well as coasters and pate servers from Stinson Studios. A small fanily run company that uses wood from sustainable wood lots, farmer wood piles, and harvested from their own family farm.
And I’ve got more fantastic moose, bear and whale pillows from Sparrow Ave! She’s been sewing up a storm for me. Who doesn’t want to cuddle up with this great Canadian beast.
5 more days of shopping to go! Hope this helps give you some ideas to help take the stress off. It is really great when you find that perfect gift for someone that isn’t just going to go and collect dust or end up in their storage closet. I’ve put a lot of thought into what I bring into the shop and I want you to feel good about your gift buying
Happy Holidays!! xo
