Wexler & Sons Games

Since creating the iconic game Connect Four in the
1970s, Howard Wexler and his son, David, have
developed and played hundreds of games in their
spare time. Their latest releases feature the same
winning combination of simple design, strategy
and calculated risk that made Connect 4 a favorite
for more than 40 years...

3-UP: Outwit your opponents by anticipating their
future moves. Move aggressively so you won't be
forced into a defensive position. Win by stacking
your pieces three high. For 2 to 4 players.

SWITCH: The objective is simple: Be the first player
to arrange four of your game pieces in a two-by-two
square.... but winning this clever two-person game
requires both a keen memory and cunning strategy.

Olive & Sinclair

I'm a sucker for great packaging and these guys
do it best... and when I tasted their small-batch 
bean-to-bar chocolate I was hooked ! This is my 
favourite time of year as we welcome back the
Olive & Sinclair chocolate to the emporium...
Mexican style cinnamon chili, coffee crunch
chocolate bars and Bourbon Nib Brittle. If you 
haven't tried it yet you owe it to yourself. (Also
makes a wonderful gift or stocking stuffer!)


We have carried the beloved Blackwing pencils,
sharpeners, and notebooks for a while and we now
have a pencil case to add to the collection. Durable
black waxed canvas pouch with heavy duty zipper
that will hold up to 24 unsharpened pencils.

Hammerpress Holiday Cards

Hammerpress is a letterpress print shop located in
Kansas City, Missouri. They have been designing
and printing letterpress cards by hand in their studio
for over 20 years. It's a process that evokes a sense
of nostalgia and fine craftsmanship. We have carried
their cards at the emporium for many years and just
received a shipment of their beautiful holiday cards.
What better way to start off the season !
