Last Show of the Year: New Work by Henderson Dry Goods

click image to enlarge

'Henderson Dry Goods is the work of Vancouver industrial designer Alex Henderson. Her medium is primarily wood, used in a myriad of ways, from jewelry to home d├ęcor: mirrors and clocks, mobiles and dioramas. For your home or for you, Henderson Dry Goods products are works of art, disguised as objects of design.'

Alex has created a beautiful collection of hand crafted jewellery (for both women and men), art,  and other treasures for you or your loved ones, just for our show.  

Join us as we celebrate the new work of another one of Vancouver's fine talents.  

We hope to see you here,

Caroline and Daniel

Norm Glass Kettle Teapot uniquely embraces the meeting of two traditions - the Asian zen philosophy and modern Scandinavian design.  As a fine design detail the tea egg is placed in the centre of the pot and is easily raised by pulling the attached silicon string when the tea is ready for serving.
Kettle Size: H 21 cm, Dia 13 cm, Capacity: 1.5 litre

Nordic Wool is a thermo cup inspired by the highly fashionable patterns known from Nordic knits.
The cup is a limited edition and has the signature isolating double wall feature that keeps beverages hot, yet prevents that you burn your fingers.
The Thermo Cups keep temperatures steady at both ends of the scale, and so are well-suited to all kinds of refreshing ice-cold or invigorating hot drinks, such as coffee, tea, sake, toddies, punch, smoothies or other fruit drinks. The insulating gap also means that the cups never get too hot to hold.

Menu's patented Decanting Pourer filters, splits, and oxygenates the wine as you pour. Goodbye to decanters and too many bottles opened before dinner, and hello to a grand taste sensation - even when the wine is an everyday table variety. Drip-free and easy to use.

Elegant table mats that can be easily folded together to fit into the cutlery drawer.

The Menu Cool Breather is a patent-pending carafe that does for white wine what has long been considered an absolute must-do for red wine. This revolutionary innovation from Menu aerates and opens up the wine, accelerating the aroma experience and upgrading the taste sensation in one swift process. An integrated re-usable cooling stick in the carafe keeps the aerated white wine fresh and cool. Place the wine bottle on the table and attach the carafe to the bottleneck. The integrated aeration is one of the most effective designs on the market today, handily beating other aerators in a Eurofins aeration test.

it's slipper time! walrus welcomes Padraig and returning fave, Glerups


'Helen made her first pair of slippers for her young son in the winter of 1977, they had a hand cut sheepskin sole and a crocheted upper made with hand spun raw wool.
Though our company has expanded, employing more than thirty local artisans and support staff, we are still independently owned and operated and our premises remain in North Vancouver, ensuring product quality and support of the local community. The slippers too remain largely the same; they are still hand crocheted and hand dyed in small lots, insuring each pair is one of a kind.

Our tagline reads, Return Home, we chose this to remind ourselves of what is important and the core values that are at the heart of Padraig Cottage Ind.'

we adore these adorable handmade slippers and have been waiting a while to get them in...available in store for babes 3 months old, 1 year old and 2 years old.
