Those who like to write will love one of our featured fountain pens as a gift this Christmas. We have a variety of colours and designs from Faber-Castell, Lamy & Pilot. Pair up a pen with a quality journal from Leuchtturm, Rhodia or Habana and you’ve got a great present for the writer in your life.
So many great books in-stock right now! Where do we start? How about with these four fantastic books that we’re happy to feature on our shelves: Rookie Yearbook Three, Bust DIY Guide to Life, Women in Clothes and The Worn Archive.
We’re still taking special orders for Christmas delivery. Get in touch if you are looking for a book or gift for that special someone.
We’re getting the gallery room all set up with lots of prints from some of our favourite artists:
2. A new addition to the shop, Ralph Heather‘s woodblock prints feature local landmarks.
3. We’re happy to see new work from Newfoundland printmaker, Graham Blair. His hand-pulled prints are graphic, bold and full of personality.
4. Ryan Berkley is another artist you’ll find regularly in the gallery. His colourful animals morphed into human personalities will leave you with a smile.
5. The art making family known as the Jelly Brothers are making sure our map selection is filled to the brim with local and not-so-local neighbourhood maps this Christmas season.
While the weather outside is frightful we have filled the shop with some warm and fun goods for all the new little people in our lives. Some of our featured items include: Blankets from Klippan (Made in Latvia) and Cate & Levi (Made in Canada), Natural rubber toys from Hevea (Made in Spain) and Bambu kids utensils.
So many lovely items to drink from. We currently have a great selection in-store of Joco Cups, S’well Bottles, Vapur Anti-Bottle and gorgeous mugs from Xenia Taler. If we don’t stock the one you are looking for, we can special order a design or colour of your choice – get in touch soon for Christmas delivery.
Disclaimer: We love mason jars! We know others do too based on the amount of interesting ways developed to adapt these humble glass containers into functional and stylish on-the-go vessels. We’ve stocked up on all our favourite: Cuppows, BNTOs, Mason Taps and Recaps – all made in the USA. They make great stocking stuffers or pair them up with a jar and a cozy and you have an instant and unique gift!
We’ve been selling the curious goods from Copernicus Toys for most of the past year with great feedback from our customers. These science based activity kits are perfect for curious kids and make great gifts and smart stocking stuffers.

Great article in The Spec By Jeff Mahoney about the new Hamilton postcard book published by the Golden Horseshoe Postcard Club. We have been selling it for a couple of weeks now and the book is getting lots of positive comments from customers. It is very amazing to see so many historic views of our city in one beautiful package. Books are $39.95 and will make a great Christmas gift.
We’ve been going through the shop to begin the gigantic task of listing up many of our unique items online for sale. We’ve had many out-of-town inquiries about some of the more hard-to-find products. There has been a steady flow of traffic from the shop to the post office as we ship everything from Chalk Markers to Pastel papers across the country. You can find a sampling of what we offer on Etsy, starting with our fantastic art supplies.
