Large Owl Cushion

What is it about owls that's so compelling? I mean
let's face it, owls are really pretty creepy. Check out
the Transformer Owl on youtube if you don't believe
me. I love this owl pillow because it doesn't try to make owls look cute. This pillow is awesome in a creepy owl
sort of way. If you like owls and can appreciate
their weirdness then you will love this pillow.

Bottle Opener

A magnetized bottle opener that you will find
indispensible. Sophisticated in its rustic
simplicity. Designed by Brendan Ravenhill
Dimensions: 4.5 x 1.5 x .75 inches
Made of walnut.

really nice collection of records just in

sun city girls / the fall / sir lord baltimore /
hawkwind / sun ra / holy modal rounders /
liquid liquid / damned / new york dolls /

Mexican Style Cinn-Chili 67% cacao

chocolate so good that we had to do another post !!
explosive with floral spices, this bar introduces a
granular melt and a steady progression from bright
organic Ceylon cinnamon to deep, salt-driven
chocolate with a subtle smoky warmth. definitely the
best interpretation of cinnamon chocolate we have
ever tried !! or try the salt & pepper bar for a truly
original chocolate experience...

Olive and Sinclair Chocolate

amazing new chocolate from nashville tennessee !!
bean to bar stone ground with very delicate flavours
of cinnamon + chili, sea salt, salt & pepper and more.
we are very happy to be the first store in vancouver
to offer these for sale (in fact one of the first stores
in canada) this is some of the best chocolate we've
ever tasted !! quantities are limited so come in soon
before it's all gone !!
