Boy oh boy, was I excited when I spotted these in New York in August and I was even more thrilled once we started unpacking them a few weeks ago at the shop. Mistletoe green and Vreeland red Louis Sherry iconic tins filled with super yummy truffles, what is not to like? For years I have spotted vintage tins at flea markets when out & about looking for goods for the stores–they make such a great keepsake. The company has been revived and once again these luscious tins can be enjoyed by all. Each box is filled with a mixture of a dozen milk and dark chocolate truffles, so they make just the swellest host/hostess gift this festive season or will be much loved as a stocking stuffer, gift under the tree or thoughtful treat given.
A lovely Sunday to you all! Hope your day is filled with all you want it to be… T

Please join us, this Saturday the 19th, at our Fine Home shop at First & Spring, for our Holiday Open House. Music will fill the air, sparkling cider and mimosas will be served, along with our yummy coffee made for us by Pollard Coffee on Vashon Island. Robin, the owner and roaster extraordinaire will be joining us from 10 to noon. Louis Sherry truffles from New York will also be enjoyed. Then at 1 o’clock artist Jeanne McKay Hartmann will once again join us for an afternoon of painting. She has created another special piece (above image) that she will personalize on the spot to make a truly special gift. For those of you who bought one last year, you can start a collection. The shop shelves are brimming with oodles of gift options. We will be wrapping away. I so hope you can join us. The following Saturday, the 26th, we will be celebrating the Market shop 18th anniversary & Holiday Open House, so if you can’t make this week-end, maybe we will see you then. Or come to both! I love that idea. If you can’t make either, please know we are adding more and more to www.WatsonKennedy.com each week so there are tons of new options for all of your gift giving needs. Hope to see you there!
These were one of my favorite finds from my buying trip in August. The Louis Sherry chocolate tins arrived yesterday afternoon and we opened up those boxes lickety split. Not only are their truffles divine, but the tins are incredibly cool. I see vintage ones here & there when out and about antique shopping, so they make a great keepsake after the chocolates have been devoured.
A bit about the company from their literature:
In 1881, Louis Sherry introduced the French chocolate-making tradition to New York and quickly established a reputation for excellence. Sherry’s dedication to quality is present today in every truffle we craft. Only the highest quality ingredients, ethically sourced from Ecuador to Madagascar to the Caribbean coast of Venezuela, are used by our master chocolatier. In celebration of our heritage, each array of chocolates is packaged in the traditional Sherry’s tin, a recast of the original, now more than 100 years old. “When it’s a matter of good taste–Sherry’s.” Such was our founder’s promise 130 years ago. We strive to live up to it today.
Mister Sherry worked for the very same thing we strive for each and every day at Watson Kennedy.
