Behind the Shop
It's been almost 6 months since we moved into this new space, but we finally, finally have new ink swabs up on the shelves! I know some of you were asking what was taking so long, and really, it was finding enough time to do this massive project properly.
I absolutely loved reading the comments from this giveaway - fall really is such a nostalgic time, but also kind of a rejuvenating time, which is a bit interesting considering spring is usually what we'd consider the "fresh start" of the seasons.
Fall is my favourite time of the year. Spring is also nice, it's stretching again after a long winter's hibernation, but there is nothing quite like fall. It's fresh and the air smells clean and crisp and you can feel the wind in your hair.
I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful weather! The long winter seems like a distant dream/nightmare and I hope you're wandering around outside in shorts and a t-shirt, and maybe getting some ice cream.
We're closing the shop on Saturday, May 9th, and we're packing everything up!
You may vaguely recall those beautiful white special edition Rhodia pads that disappeared very quickly from our shop (we tried to get more! we're still trying!).
We had a blast reading some of your pick-up lines! They were funny and cheesy and romantic and ....awful.
Valentine's Day is coming up...that sweet, chocolate-y time of year when kids are scrunching up cards with little confessions of love, everything seems pink and cinnamon flavoured, and you can see men everywhere wandering aimlessly through the city looking for that "just right" gift.
With the new year come new year's resolutions. It's a fresh start! A field of untouched snow! A new teacher in September! A gym membership! All good things yet untarnished by life.
Happy Hallowe'en, and we hope you are all enjoying some tasty candy. Jon is eating the left-over chocolate from the shop.
