new item :: vintage finds

LFSCollageLFSPaperOrnamentsHere’s a quick sneak peek on some of the vintage finds that we brought into the shop this week! Two of my biggest weaknesses are vintage Christmas ornaments and vintage children’s illustrations, so I’m surprised that these are even making it to the shop – HA!

clockwise:

A complete set of The Wonderful Worlds of Walt Disney hardcover books – Stories From Other Lands, America, Worlds of Nature, and FantasyLand. Printed by Golden Press in 1965 and in good condition with very minor wear and tear.

Vintage Animal Fun Letter and Object Matching Game and Vintage ABC Push-Out Toy Cards – Two complete children’s games from 1954 / 1955 that are in great condition with almost no visible wear and tear. Would make a fantastic decor piece in a children’s room or as a gift for somebody fond of vintage illustrations!

Paper Vintage Christmas Ornaments! These are probably one of my most favourite items in the shop right now! From an estate of a past window dresser of Eaton’s, these ornaments are absolutely amazing. Sold as a set of 6 (in its original box).

Additional images available upon request. Contact us here for more details or stop by the shop! (Ornaments are available at the shop, but won’t be on display until closer to the holiday season!)

Elliot’s First Birthday

Elliot-bday-inviteAre you surviving the heat wave that has hit Vancouver the past few weeks? We have definitely blown our budget for iced beverages and have been pretty much spending our days from one air conditioned shop to another. It’s hot as Hades out there!

Last weekend, we celebrated Elliot’s first birthday with a picnic in the park. I know we used to plan events for a living, but man, oh man, personal events are always stressful. It was so good though! Robert’s family was all here including his sister from the BVI and his aunt, who just met Elliot for the first time last week! As part of our take away gifts, we had Lisa from Draw Me A Lion create a postcard that the kids (and adults) could colour and keep. She illustrated the image above of Elliot’s favourite things – ice cream and cats! Feel free to save the image on your desktop, print it, and then colour.

Stay cool, my friends!
