southwestern incense

I thought I would post this again as we have the
smokehouse incense burners on their way...
Incense burning is a tradition in many cultures,
however the fragrance of some incense can often
be too sweet or overpowering. This 100% natural
incense is made from native woods and produced
in New Mexico. The fragrances are distinctly dry
and woodsy, reminiscent of smouldering firewood.
The scents include pinon, juniper, cedar, hickory
and fir balsam. It's like having a campfire in your
house... (but without the flames) !!

there's a new store in town !!

My friends Linh & Stewart just opened a new store
on Main Street called The Soap Dispensary. The
concept behind the store is to promote a less
disposable lifestyle by offering a refill service for
all your household soaps, cleansers and personal
care products. Recycling your containers is one
thing but reusing them is even better. All their
soaps are biodegradable and gentle for people
and the environment. So if you are trying to
reduce your footprint, this store is for you. Check
out their website at
or visit the store at 3623 Main Street. Welcome to
the neighbourhood... we wish you all the best !!

mini wood speakers are back !!

It has been difficult keeping this mini cube wood
speaker in stock... every time we get them in they
fly out the door !! We ordered quite a few this time
so hopefully they will stick around for a while.
This little speaker on a keychain is easily portable
and produces rich sound. It includes a USB cord
for charging and a standard jack to connect it to
audio sources like media players and cell phones
and it has a built-in rechargeable battery.

hands bowl

The design for this versatile bowl mimics
a natural vessel, a pair of cupped hands
which is kind of perfect, don't you think?
Made in Japan of white porcelain.
Dishwasher and microwave safe.
New to the emporium... now in stock !!

coming soon... at long last

Izola has arrived !!

Inspired by old world utilitarian objects that
were built to last comes a whimsical collection
of accessories that combines functional every
day staples with antiquity. The result is a series
of useful items which are made with great care
and attention to detail, including soap dishes,
soaps, bamboo toothbrushes, shoe brushes
and hip flasks.

The soaps are handcrafted in the style of fine
18th century toiletries. The old world triple
milled recipe is an all vegetable base with the
moisturizing benefit of olive oil. Sensitive to
the environment and free of animal testing.
Simple... and simply beautiful !!

lovely shot of the store

this lovely photo taken by pro photographer
charles thompson from london england

it has arrived ! we have 6 copies in the store.

following year ( which is also great ! )
