the return of Autumn


August draws to a close and the old familiar feeling of  ‘back to school’ excitement returns.

Whatever your age – you feel it. I don’t believe there is any of us immune.

As the weather cools and the days get shorter we search out the comforting – cozy sweaters in warm colours, layers to bundle ourselves and protective coverings.

As much as I love the Summer – I relish this change of the season. My knitting basket is returned to it’s rightful spot, the area rugs come back out of the linen closet and the house is prepared for the reflective season ahead.

The anticipation of the turning of  leaves, the crispness in the air – I love the Autumn Holidays. Having family and friends in for cozy dinners and celebrations. The traditions, old and new.

Professionally, I look forward to all the warm Fall clothing, the shoes, the accessories. I’m sure you do too.

What are your favourite Fall traditions?

As Vancouver weather turns grey and rainy, and the days get shorter, the calendar reminds us that the Holidays are just around the corner. Personally, my favourite time of year. There is something magical and special about the Holiday Season and I tend to begin preparations in earnest once Remembrance Day has been observed.

This time of year also signals large shipments of pretty party dresses and gift items to make their way to the shops. Each day bringing new surprises and excitement as we open boxes and get things ready for our lovely customers. We really enjoy finding wonderful items and bringing them into the store. The added sprinkle of twinkle lights make our displays glitter and our passion for Christmas music is indulged. Hot chocolate becomes an afternoon staple and a secret wish for snow (just enough to make it white) is on our minds.

We look forward to seeing you, and helping you find just the right item for that someone special.

As the countdown to Christmas begins, please remember to take time for family and friends and share the true spirit of the Holiday – with acts of kindness, gestures of love and friendship and making time for those you care for most.
