Where do I even start? Hmm… If you have been following us for awhile, you may have seen us announce our plans on opening up a brick and mortar shop. Well, after viewing the space in summer 2013, signing the lease last Fall and then setting an opening date of November 2013, we seem to have fallen into a black hole of construction delays, contractor woes and trouble shooting permits. It seemed like everybody kept telling us, oh, it will be ready next month and the next month become the Next month and that then became the NEXT month and over a year later, I’m happy to announce that we are closer than we have ever been. The walls have been freshly painted, the floors refinished, the original radiators cleaned, the lighting installed, new tiling has been placed, and shelving is being built. Our new shop and workshop space will open its doors in * fingers crossed * late October where we will feature an eclectic mix of everyday objects hand picked from around the globe. With an emphasis on handmade, I’ll be bringing in my favourite homewares, paper goods and stationery, edibles, prints, vintage, and other gift items – “We don’t buy for the masses”.
As it has taken us this long to get the retail portion of the shop set up, cake and coffee service will be postponed until the new year as that is a whole lightening bolt of paperwork on its own! In the meantime, I’m busy uploading all of our goods into our online shop and stay tuned for announcements on our opening date as well as upcoming workshops!
Looking forward to saying hello in person!
