Around the Shop: November
Posted on 27 November 2014
It's the end of the month and we're back again with a peek inside our Philly storefront, where all the magic happens. There aren't even any elves working here. We have sooo many new arrivals, restocks of customer favorites, and fresh displays––it's definitely that time of year again. So we say to our neighbors, do and come visit. And if any of our online neighbors like what they see and it isn't available in our online shop just yet, we can take orders over the phone for just about anything pictured below. Enjoy!
New additions to our barware selection, the Animal Head Shot Glasses have an updated faceted design we think is awesome.
Sparkly chocolate bark by the Bang Candy Co matches its packaging and is sooo good! A great little treat for anyone.
Our pick of Japanese ceramics and glass ware regularly makes us stop and sigh in admiration.
Customer favorite Takenaka Bento Boxes are durable, microwave and dishwasher safe, BPA free, Japanese made, and look sleek and chic just sitting there (like there's not even anything to eat in these yet)!
Ryo Takagi kirie prints have been a constant in our shop since our earliest days and remain an in-store exclusive. Keep your eyes peeled for his 2015 calendar!
Stocking hard to find stationery goods from Korea and Japan is one of our personal pleasures, and we just got tons of new and restock shipments in for the holidays. We're talking 0.3mm tip pens here!
We've always had trouble keeping Delfonics Craig vegan leather cases in stock for more than a few days, but we ordered big this time for the holidays! This is Japanese design attention to detail.
Our new winter accessories nook and card wall. =)
Have you checked out our Holiday Greeting Card Shop yet?
We stocked up on German-made Kaweco pens for these long indoor months. If there is a pen enthusiast in your life, come see about these! We have several styles, in ballpoint, rollerball, and fountain pen tip, as well as ink cartridges, converter cartridges for bottle ink, and more. There's even one that has a stylus at the end for using with your smartphone or tablet (feels amazing to use if you have sore fingers).
Captivating gemstone jewelry by our local fave, StitchPrism. Crystals are timeless and magical and make a great gift for a variety of people in your life.
For city cyclists, we always make sure to keep these petite Japanese bike bells in stock, along with an assortment of Swedish-designed bike lights and reflectors. Check them out along with other on-the-move gear in our Bike & Tech department.
Small batch handmade MCMC fragrances smell as good as their names are evocative. Read more about them and our other fragrance and skincare picks here.
This just has stocking stuffer written all over it. Or a nice last minute gift, or just something to have in your wash room for holiday entertaining. I know my mom always busts out the pine forest scented stuff...
Midori's Traveler's Note series is known across the globe! This leather journal system has a huge range of inserts to pick from so that you can assemble a daily planner that really works for you. We just restocked everything, so check it out here.
Yes that's right, we ship to you! Or if you live in Philly, you can shop online and pick up your order in store. Need something wrapped? We can do that too. Check out all of our holiday services and gift guides here, and make sure to visit us if you're in town.
