First Customer

Friends and family have been coming by to visit the shop. It’s great to be located in such a welcoming neighbourhood.

She really liked the rubber duckies

Opening Day!

much&little opens for business today! It’s a momentous occasion for us after weeks of very long days! So who, you may ask, is the lovely lady in the photo? Her name was Ruby and she was beautiful, vibrant, and lived life to the fullest. Seventeen years ago today, she passed on – and so we open our doors in her honour. Thank you for everything you gave me, Mom. I carry you in my heart and I hope you would be proud. xo

New shipment of Bauer Pottery

The store is almost ready! Just got a new shipment of classic white dishware from Bauer Pottery. This line is from the Russel Wright American Modern collection, originally manufactured in the 1930’s and 40’s – the largest selling dinnerware pattern of that period.

CBC Interview

As many of you know, I’m in the midst of opening a store. Yep, it’s actually happening! I’ll be selling functional items for the home, accessories and women’s clothing. The last few months have been off-the-charts busy with renovations and all the myriad details that go into starting your own business. Shelves are being built, inventory is arriving, and I’m aiming to open the doors in a few short weeks. My friend and neighbour, Shiral Tobin, who is Director for CBC’s The Early Edition interviewed me and Mark for a segment on September 27th.
