This year we've got lots of goodies in store for all your gift-giving needs! I've spent the past few months searching high and low for an extensive collection of giftware's, for everyone on your list! Grab one of gift guides, in store, for some gifting inspiration! Last year's popular Out of Print sweatshirts are back and there are some great new designs like "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Le Petit Prince". Also, another favourite from last year, the soaps and teas by Honey Pie Hives and Herbals have already been flying off the shelf! On top of those we've got some great new lines, including vintage-inspired Canadiana bags by Red Canoe, locally made body scrubs by Perk Naturals and some amazing new jewelry lines!
My personal favourite for this year is the vintage-inspired onesie pyjama- they're hand-dyed in the US, then we've sewn some vintage ski patches on them to give a real apres ski look! We'll be sharing some of our favourite items over the coming weeks, organized by theme. To begin, we've got "Cozy Cabin". Think nights by the fire with a mug of hot cocoa, snuggling up with your favourite book- or favourite cuddle partner ;)
Onesie ($64), Vintage Plaid Blanket ($52), Stay Home Club Pennants ($14 each), Moonrise Kingdom Patch ($12), Red Cap Cards ($5 each), Twin Peaks Patch ($12), CBC Backpack ($64), Smash Poster Prints ($40), Lightfoot's Shave Soap ($8)
In honour of Valentines Day we teamed up with our pal, Oliver, from O's Clothes to bring you a couple's fashion story. The photos were shot on location at the James Street Bookseller, a beautiful bookstore located at 134 James St South, that sells new and gently used books and has an impressive collection of rare and special editions. Our beautiful couple was "Hamilton lovers", Ciara McCann and Andrew Baulcomb. Ciara recently started working at Joseph Brant Hospital as their Web and New Media Coordinator. Andrew is a talented writer that has worked for many local publications and is currently putting the finishing touches on his own book all about the Hamilton music scene from 2006-2011. The two lovebirds were married this past May and their adorable connection is apparent in the photos.
Finally, our talented photographer was George Qua-Enoo, a portrait and lifestyle photographer based in Hamilton. George was originally born in Ghana, and often travels around the world shooting photos for various NGO's. He did a great job capturing Ciara and Andrew's natural chemistry and was a delight to work with.
