Sadly The Owl.

Monday, January 12, 2015


Linnie von Sky, who is an incredibly beautiful soul - is spreading her voice about Depression through the most wonderful medium; children's literature. We would love to help Linnie share her heartfelt tale and spread the word about her new book Sadly The Owl.  Depression is an illness that hits close to home and whatever we can do to help end it's stigma, we will.  Read more about Sadly The Owl and their Indigogo campaign here.

New Year. New Arrivals.

Monday, January 05, 2015



January calls for a renew of essentials - jeans and easy basics.
So we did that. We brought in the simplest of necessities.  Boyfriend jeans, cargos, cotton pullover and tee's. Dressing made easy. 

Shoppe Chit Chat: Pancakes



Stop everything you are doing right now and jot this recipe down. 
I've made it about a zillion times since I saw it on Jessica Seinfelds Instagram page (which is one of my faves, btw). I served these Christmas morning to my family and pretty much felt like a superhero. Now go, try, enjoy! 

The stripe thing.

Friday, January 02, 2015


I'm thinking a new stripe tee and some comfy loungers on this blustery 2nd day of the New Year.
Chic comforts - a good way to set the tone for the year.

The Merriest of Christmas'

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Wishing you and your family a beautiful Christmas. 
It's been a wonderful holiday season at the shoppe. Thank you again for all your support and for wrapping local under the tree. It means more than you'll ever know.  We hope Santa slides through your chimney with a sparkle in his eye and a rum in his hand (as my dad would say).
Merry Christmas dear friends. Lot's of love…. Leighann, Darren, Gillian and Rosalie. 

The perfect pair.

Shoppe Chit Chat: Traditions and Simplicities

Wanted to write and say hello.  It's almost Christmas if you can believe. I hope you all are keeping well.  Our family has arrived from Alberta and we're excited to have everyone in town.  D & I are hosting Christmas Eve this year. Keeping it super simple with one big charcuterie board, champagne and a couple Swedish traditional touches.  I'm not into hustling and fussing over the holidays.  I think it's much more special keeping it easy and simple.  How about you - any traditions or favourites you're looking forward to?  Amidst the holiday hum in the air I hope you find some moments throughout the season to soak in all it's goodness. It's a beautiful time.
