things to do :: forest and waves pop-up

Forest-and-Waves-Pop-UpGot Craft? vendor, Edward Juan from Forest and Waves will be taking over the Chinatown Experiment this week with his very first pop-up retail store! Ed first contacted me last year when he was relocating from the US to Vancouver and I remember instantly falling in love with his work. As an avid surfer, and with him completing the NYC marathon last Sunday, it is no surprise that the store will be specializing in outdoor inspired goods – hence the name, Forest and Waves.

Along with his locally designed line of paper goods and tea towels, he will also carry a selection of clothing, home decor from Pigeon Toe Ceramics and LandonDix, skate boards from local designer Would Boards, and fabric pouches from Roxypop. I’ll be behind the counter giving Edward a helping hand, so stop by and say hello!

I have been fluttering here and there trying to decide where this blog was headed or even to keep it going. Last Tuesday, marked my 2 month “summer leave” and although, I thought about the blog often, it has been an amazing feeling to just shut down the computer and walk away. I feel that my priorities have shifted in the best of ways. I am savouring this time… going on adventures… experiencing life. I needed some time to clear my head and find my inspiration and I’m happy to announce that I’m back and kicking things off with a field trip over to the Delish General Store!

Delish General Store is a mom and pop (online-until-now) shop that celebrates the revival of the handmade and home grown, extol the virtues of getting your hands dirty, and the pioneering spirit. They carry hard-to-find, “didn’t-know-I-needed-this-until-I-found-it”, hip, handy and heritage-inspired products. Always a HUGE hit at Got Craft?, Delish General Store has taken over the Chinatown Experiment store front this weekend to host their first pop-up!
