My Favorite Things Today

When we are at Hawthorne I still love seeing all the new goods that are arriving at the shops while we are away. So I get photos sent to me as things get unpacked and put into displays. We have been finding all sorts of GOODNESS these last few months. Here are a few favorites among the group. Of course I love it all, but these are the dozen that caught my eye and tickled my fancy the most on this stay.



 

 

Another Ten

We shot 10 more goods the other day for the website, so another quick My Favorite Things Today as we head into our Thursday. I always love seeing new things grace our shelves. Hope you do too!



 

 

My Favorite Things Today

January for most shopkeepers can be a quiet time. Shipments trickle in after the busy holidays and customers can be scarce. Longevity and location has helped to alleviate that quietness for us, and most days are humming. New, new, new is my mantra always, as keeping things fresh is well, what keeps things fresh. New displays, new merchandise–the combo keeps it moving and grooving. Here are ten goodies that caught my eye this past week. All now up on our website too.

All sorts of new yumminess arriving at the shops each day. Thursday I snapped away at some new favorites. Always tough to narrow it down, but fun trying! I am often asked during my ‘wrap’ sessions with customers how I came up with the concept for Watson Kennedy. I always say it was easy, as I only buy what I love. My first test is we must be able to love having it in our own home or giving it as a gift ourselves. If goods pass those guidelines, then they go through a bunch of other criteria in my head in the split seconds that I give to making the final decision to buy something that ends up on our shelves.

On this first day of September, Saturday, all sorts of goodies have been coming in that caught my eye as My Favorite Things Today.

Lots of goodies arriving daily. The Summer months are such a busy time at the shops. Fun to meet folks from all over the world who are coming to Seattle for a visit. Above and below some new favorites.

It was an extraordinarily sunny day in Seattle yesterday, the light swirling around pretty perfectly at the First & Spring shop. I clicked away photos of goods and vignettes. The Summer months are quite, quite busy with lots of folks visiting our much loved Seattle, so the shelves remain nice and full. Lots of gifts to give, or keep. A dozen for your viewing pleasure. Have a lovely week-end and Happy Bastille Day!

Small display projects throughout the shops since back from New York is a fun way to see all the new that arrived while we were away. As I like to say, it is all in the mix. Here are some favorites I snapped along the way.



 

 

All About Vintage

We started a several month long project yesterday of cataloging all of the vintage goods in our inventory. Over the years we have amassed quite a collection of things so we thought it wise to have images of all the gems from around the globe. Sterling silver, Baccarat crystal, English hotel silver and brass were the beginning points. Each item getting cleaned, polished, re-numbered and lastly photographed. Look for more & more added to our website in the coming months. Above and below some of My Favorite Things Today.
