The shops are a flurry of activity as Holiday begins to unfold. I was able to click away a bunch of images yesterday of things that really caught my eye. Many have a very vintage bent, as I really love to mix in as many vintage goods as I can find to the overall WK assortment. It is what gives things that final layer of depth in the layering process I strive for. The above bone dominoes being a shop constant. The display got a new assortment and a little refresh.
We have stacks & stacks of books at the ready. They really do just make the best gifts. True Prep, written by Watson Kennedy customer, Lisa Birnbach, is her latest spin on all things preppy, and is a follow-up to the hugely successful The Official Preppy Handbook. Lisa was so kind to sign all of our copies. She also gave a quote for the inside cover of my upcoming book.
Vintage red stripped French dishtowels are always a winner this time of year. I like to use one in place of wrapping paper and make it part of a gift. The red stripe adding a jolly twist on the packaging.
We just put these out yesterday. The perfect under $20 gift. A glass votive candle by Aquiesse housed in a lovely box. Heavenly scented, we add our signature Watson Kennedy matches to the wrapping, and for 15 bucks it is just one seriously spiffy gift.
Happy Thursday all!
From rainy Seattle, Ted
