Back in Stock

Ever since we sold out over the holidays, many of you have been asking when we would be getting in more Michel Design products and we always had to say we weren't sure when it would arrive.  Now after weeks of waiting, we can finally say "It's here!"  We just received a huge shipment of Michel trays and soaps, including several new styles and fragrances!

Not familiar with Michel?  From their beautifully decoupaged trays to their amazing soaps, this line is full of wonderful gift ideas for any occasion.  The triple-milled soaps from England are always a customer favorite, as is the foaming pump soap.  There are several new fragrances in the line this year and we're having a hard time picking a favorite!  They've also expanded their home offerings with new paper placemats and coasters in a variety of fun patterns.  Pair them together for a great hostess or housewarming gift.

Here's a peek at some of the new arrivals -

Hope you can stop by soon to see them in person!

More Market Finds

More of our market finds have arrived!  It seems like every day we receive some new treasures to unpack and display.  Since we're so excited about all our new arrivals, we thought we'd share some of them with you.

These art blocks from the "Lost & Found" series are all hand crafted using a traditional plastering technique applied in multiple layers over a block of wood.  Every block is individually produced enhancing its uniqueness and creating a vintage look. 

Designed to stand or hang, these four-inch squares can be used in a variety of ways.  Place one on a bookshelf to fill an empty spot, prop a meaningful block on your desk for a little inspiration or hang several as a group on a wall.


All "Lost & Found" blocks are handcrafted in Canada.

Our popular "The Gathering of Friends" cookbook series just got even better.  Volume Five was recently released and has already become a favorite.  Just like the first four volumes, this new book is filled with delicious recipes, thoughtful entertaining ideas and beautiful photography.

Not familiar with the series?  We have all five books in stock right now, so it's a great time to check them out.  It'll be hard to choose a favorite!

Of course we can't forget the kids while we're hunting for new lines!  We're always on the lookout for fun finds to add to our selection of baby and kid products, so we were glad to find these great colorful toys.  Meet the newest additions to our baby department...

The Winkel is made from soft, pliable plastic making it easy for baby to grasp.  Available in two colorways, it can also be refrigerated and used as a teether.

The Skwish appeals to baby's visual and tactile curiosity and is made with sustainable rubberwood.

The Orble, Ringable, Skwinkle and Baby Beads are designed for babies 3 months and up and are easy to carry with you on outings.

These are just a few of the new products that have arrived at the shop and we have many more on the way.  Be sure to stop by soon and check out all our great new arrivals!
