Watson Kennedy Named To International Best Shops List

December 7, 2021

Over the moon to report WATSON KENNEDY was chosen one of the best shops in the world for 2021 by ‘the SHOPKEEPERS’ along with a host of others I hold so near & dear from our travels. LABOUR AND WAIT and PETERSHAM NURSERIES in London. MERCI and POILÂNE in Paris. JOHN DERIAN COMPANY, ROMAN AND WILLIAMS GUILD in New York. CREEL AND GOW in Millbrook. TALBOTT & ARDING in Hudson. TAIL OF THE YAK in Berkeley. Being a shopkeeper is a profession of love & passion, when done well. Truly an honor to be chosen among others I hold in such high esteem.

Ted’s Tip No. 332

The massing of one type of item, here brass candlesticks, creates a visual story with impact. Your eye sees it as a collective whole while still offering lots of variety to ponder.

An Amaryllis Awaits

December 3, 2021

Flower Friday about the early stages of an amaryllis when it is still quite a ways from blooming. Ahhhhh, the possibilities. Anticipation. Still quite beautiful in its spiky state, knowing how gorgeous it will be when it starts to unfurl. Hope a lovely first December week-ends awaits you. X, T

December Care Packages

December 2, 2021

Posts this month will be quite ‘gift-centric’ as we are knee deep into the season at the shops. Just yesterday we packaged up 40 parcels for a much cherished customer to be sent to loved ones across the country. Before starting that project, we assembled our latest Care Packages for the month. These are filled with all sorts of goodness. Sure to make the day of the lucky recipient.

25 Holiday Gift Guides

December 1, 2021

Starting yesterday right on up to Christmas Day, I will be posting a ten item Holiday Gift Guide on our Watson Kennedy social media pages each day. It all started a few years ago and I quite like the tradition. It is a fun way to highlight our assortment. Which, as I like to say, are gifts to give, or keep. Happy 1st of December everyone!
