We now carry Falafel chips – quickly becoming a favourite item in the shop. Gluten and dairy free, these organic chips come in two varieties, regular and spicy. Great with hummus, they are high in fiber and with only 80gm of sodium in a serving, not overly salty. We are sampling on most Saturdays through November and December, so be sure to try them when you are in the store.
The New York International Gift Fair was amazing! Besides being a good excuse to visit NYC, the show introduced us to new sources we don’t see at the regular shows in Toronto. What is more exciting is finding ones that are actually from Canada! Stinson Studio is a great example.
Located in Tamworth Ontario, Stinson Studio is family owned and operated since 1982. They create extremely interesting salad bowls and art pieces using woods from eastern Canada. The woods they choose show fantastic character in their grain and the shapes they create are quite artistic making great attention grabbing salad bowls, both for personal use and for gift giving. They also create pieces from burled wood that make a statement in any decor. An important aspect of their operating principle is the sustainability of the woods they acquire, ensuring that they use as much of the raw material as possible for multiple bowls and boards.
We have just received our first shipment, and we are very impressed with the quality of the work the Stinson family performs. Be sure to see the pieces in the shop next time you drop in.
Woodstock Chimes was started in 1979 by Gary Kvistad using his background as a highly regarded percussionist. His goal was to tune each tube of the chime to a different note from a scale based on the theme that inspires the particular chime’s design. This creates a chime that not only looks great, but creates music as the wind passes through and around. All of Woodstock’s chimes are of top quality and have a very artistic presence. Sizes range from the tiny pocket chimes to the very impressive windsinger line that culminates with the grandeur of the 88″ King David.
Thier products are separated into several lines. Asli Arts consists of capiz and bamboo chimes and includes many traditional and whimsical designs. The Encore line is a wide range of chimes, with various colours, sizes and materials with affordable pricing. The Signature line uses heavier gauge tubes to create longer lasting notes. Every chime is of high quality and compliments any environment that it is hung.
Inspiration for the designs comes from many sources. Eastern themes include several chimes based on Feng Shui. As well chakra chimes have been very popular. Songs from various cultures inspire several of the chimes, including European, Asian, and Tropical themes and scales. Garden chimes add artistic touches to any garden with interesting shapes and subtle sounds and designs.
We have a large selection of Woodstock chimes in the shop, representing all of the design aspects incorporated in the product line. Feel free to browse through our Windchime room and listen to the various chimes on display.
There are many great ‘made in Canada’ collections that you have asked us to expand in the Shop. One of these is CedarMountain’s “Lost & Found” art blocks made on Saltspring Island,British Columbia. This picturesque 183 square kilometre island with a population of 10,500 is filled with artists of all kinds.
We met with Suzanne, one of the co-owners, who introduced us to the new art blocks. They have added so many fabulous designs, it was difficult to choose – and at such a great price!
By expanding our selection, we needed to dedicate a whole wall to feature the large art blocks and a secondary space for the smaller sized ones.
Ask us about how to create interesting arrays for your home. We have some great ideas on ways to combine groups of various blocks!
