Alpaca



Alpaca fibre was once reserved for the Incan kings
of ancient Peru. Today this wonderfully light, soft
alpaca throw is woven in Pendleton's owned and
operated mill, using the fibres of American raised
alpacas. Alpaca's hollow core fibre is even stronger
and warmer than sheep wool. It retains heat, repels
moisture and wears beautifully. It is hypoallergenic
and no dyes or chemicals are used to deliver the
gorgeous natural colours. 52 x 70" with 5" fringe.
made from 100% Alpaca and made in the USA.
Coming soon to the emporium !

Arbutus spoons & servers




Handcrafted on the ruggedly beautiful Cortes
Island comes a selection of arbutus wood spoons,
salad servers and cooking utensils. The Arbutus
tree grows on exposed rocky bluffs overlooking
the sea and is native to the Pacific Northwest.
These pieces are made from the salvaged wood
of fallen trees and are eco-friendly. Finished with 
food-safe walnut oil. Makes a wonderful gift or
souvenir from the coast of BC.

brass pendant lamp



we just received some beautiful brass lighting
fixtures with brown cloth cords. the cord is 15'
long so it can be suspended from most ceilings.
add an edison bulb to complete the simple yet
elegant look (bulbs sold separately).
