Spent the better part of yesterday doing small bits of display around the shop. Straightening here & there. Always a fun day to click away some things that caught my eye.
Boxes arrive each day from super friendly delivery folks by way of FedEx & UPS, Bailey barking like crazy the moment they scan the boxes and the little ‘beep’ sounds. Pavlovian response, to say the least. Then it is a bit like the movie ‘Groundhog Day’ as it all happens the next day. These shipments are filled with the glorious goods I have been ordering at the shows. New glassware, tasty nibbles, hot off the press books, an original piece of artwork to make your home sing–are just a few of the goods received. Here are a some things that caught my eye as I walked around the shop yesterday.
The new year brings new delights at the shops–to read, to taste, to hold, to give, to receive. Here are a few of My Favorite Things Today.
We are coming up on the last day to order from the Watson Kennedy website which is this Wednesday, to guarantee delivery by the 24th. We can expedite shipping after that, but it becomes a little more costly. So I thought I would show you this variety of images today of things I have posted on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter this last month. Just a variety of fun foursomes, of things to give, or keep, this festive season.
Today is a big day for small retailers as Shop Small takes center stage in our communities. I do hope you can get out and about in your town or city to shop & eat small today. Of course you know I feel this way and I have said it often before, but small businesses add so much variety/creativity/love to the community in which they grace–they are fueled by the passions of individuals and families. So if shopping is on your agenda today, shop small. I promise you, it will be greatly appreciated and make you happy, happy, happy.
Just a reminder, we have our Holiday Open House today at our shop in the courtyard of the Inn at the Market, in the Pike Place Market. Would love to see you there! As a little blog reader bonus, if you see me and tell me you follow along on the daily posts, I will have a ‘merci’ treat for you. Now on to my latest favorite things…
So much new is arriving at the shops each day, it has been a fun challenge keeping up with it all. I know, tough job. My goal these last few weeks right on through the Holidays is to add a dozen new items to the shop website each week. In between unpacking and wrap, wrap, wrapping I have been click, click, clicking away. Here is the 12 for this week. All are now up on our Watson Kennedy site for those of your from afar and settled in nicely to a display for all of you in the Seattle area.
A happy start of this November to you all! The shops & website are brimming with festive goods, both new & old. The Watson Kennedy elves have been diligently unpacking away for quite some time now to stock our shelves with all sorts of yummy things. Here are a few that caught my eye.
So many things caught my eye at both shops, it was hard to chose. But try I must–insert large smile. Some old, some new, some tried, some true. All soon to be up on our website, or give us a ring if you have any questions or just prefer to hear a friendly voice.
So many things popped out at me as I strolled around the shops to choose some current favorites. Gifts to give, gifts to keep–is always a thought running through my head as I am buying goods for Watson Kennedy. Here are a dozen that topped the list.
Summer has kicked into high gear, the hustle & bustle of guests visiting our fine city makes each day at the shops such a treat. I love hearing foreign languages being spoken while visitors enjoy the shop experience, to folks who are spending the day in Seattle who have come over from Bellevue. Near or far, we always try to offer an assortment of goods to delight. Here is what caught my eye in the past few days.
