My Favorite Things Today

October 2, 2013

For a shopkeeper the month of October is the time quite a bit of unpacking of goods occurs. Actually, it feels like we are unpacking boxes from the moment we open until the second we lock the door at 6. A spin around the floor yesterday had me grinning from ear to ear as it is so fun to see the pieces of the puzzle come together. Here are a dozen things to excite & delight.

20131002-065600.jpg Little horn bowls that would look great holding just about anything. Jewelry or salt are the 2 things that first come to mind.

20131002-065819.jpg Fatwood has been a go-to gift for us to give for many years. Just 2 of these little sticks need to be used as kindling to start a fire. We always have a bucket of these around.

20131002-070721.jpg Don’t ask me why we have not carried this classic sooner. I think every kitchen could benefit from this beyond amazing cookbook.

20131002-070909.jpg We carry very few mugs, as they have to be just right. This one is.
