Good things update

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of September. I know many people are lamenting the passing of summer, but I have to say these first few days of Fall have been lovely. The seasons will change and time will march on, so go with the flow I say!

Speaking of change, there is much of that at Much&Little! Welcome aboard to the multi-talented Katie, our newest staff member; and sweet farewell to Grant (although somehow I think we’ll still be seeing you in the neighborhood or darkening our doors on occasion).

I’m fighting off a wee cold but carry on I must; holiday orders are to be placed, so sniffles begone! In the coming weeks and months there will be lots of new stuff in the shop, plus replenishment of our favourite items – we are very excited about it all!

It’s always a challenge to stay on top of these blog posts – any attempt at posting once a week has turned out to be more like once a month. But we are on Instagram, which I love – it’s a super quick way share what’s new, or just plain fun. If you have the app, look us up #muchlittleshop and start following! If we’re not blogging, we’re more than likely Instagramming!

Anyway… I did want to share about some wonderful new things in the shop. Below are the details and photos. This week I’ll be getting in a whole bunch of other goodies, so come on in and pay us a visit soon!

 

Local designer Ashley Watson makes the softest wallets from reclaimed leather garments. I personally own one and love it. Don’t expect these wallets to be stiff and structured. Soft and supple is the name of the game here. Each one is sewn one at a time by Ashley herself. We’ve got the larger button wallets for girls who have more stuff to stash, or the smaller tie wallets for simpler needs.

Amazing skincare from local, fair trade and organic Fable Naturals. We have their lipbalms (three flavours in a biodegradable cardboard tube); their body balm which is effective on dry areas as well as taming flyaways; and (my personal favourite) the sugar scrub. Use the scrub in the shower and you will have the smoothest, softest skin you can imagine – think baby’s bottom smooth. The scents are intoxicating – I can’t get enough of it!

From TW Pottery in Los Angeles. I’m in love with these earthy, imperfect vases and planters. They are weighty and quirky and one-of-a-kind. I think the vases would also make great utensil holders in my dream coast modern home!

Love these hanging planters with succulents nestled inside. Hmmmm, which glaze is my favourite?
