Our dog section continues to grow. I am just finding so much fun stuff to add to it. We found some apropos vintage flashcards that made a whimsical piece of art, staying with our ‘art’ theme of the last few days.
Giving a piece of artwork can be an incredibly special and meaningful gift. We started the tradition of giving each other a piece of art for our anniversary. In January, it will be 24 years of exchanging artwork–the wall in our living room helps to tell the story.
Some of the artwork on the wall was a gift from friends and artists whose work I sell at Watson Kennedy. The column was a gift from Hugo Guinness, and could not be more perfect in the spot next to the column in the hall.
A well stocked bar can mean much more than having a variety of alcohol & mixer choices. It is also a chance to bring a little style into the area. With more and more people entertaining at home, a gift to jazz up one’s bar set-up can be a winner heading into this Holiday season. Below are a few things we sell that top the list of fun bar gifts.
We have a new supplier for these pump decanters, and they now work better than ever. Put your hand over the top of the pump, push down, and it pours a perfect shot. The bottle is etched with a variety of liquors, such as gin, vodka and scotch.
All of the above are goods we sell at Watson Kennedy. If anything catches your eye or interests you, please feel free to e-mail me directly with questions or call one of the shops.
Denise Fiedler, artist extraordinaire from San Francisco, sent me the sweetest gift the other day. We have been carrying her work for some time now, and I have struck up a lovely long distance friendship with her. That is the fun thing about the retail world, you end up working with fabulous folks from around the globe. She sent me one of her hand cut & pasted, one of a kind works–taken from a photo that appeared in Country Living magazine, of me with pooch Bailey at my side. Baseball cap and all, Denise captured a moment in time.
If you are wanting a personalized piece by Denise, all I need is a photo in PDF form, and off we go. The custom work starts at $350. I will be adding this service onto the Watson Kennedy web site soon, but if you are wanting something sooner, always feel free to contact me directly by e-mail, or call one of the shops.
