A collection of scarves from Toronto based
company, Tilo, is now here... The emphasis
is on natural fibres, textures, and a modern
color palette. Some of the scarves are woven
on looms over 100 years old, which create
fine and unique textures. 100% wool and
oh so soft... the perfect fashion accessory.

Locally made, custom blended and hand-poured in
micro batches, these 6oz all-natural candles are made
from 100% massage grade soy wax and pure essential
oils. Each uses a wick made of 100% lead-free cotton

can be easily washed and reused after you've finished
enjoying your candle. Each candle burns for roughly
50-60 hours under normal conditions.
Choose from three delicious scents...
Energizing: lemon, rosemary, eucalyptus & basil
Soothing: vanilla, bergamot & japanese peppermint
Balancing: oak moss, cypress, spruce & rosemary
We love these candles and hope to see more products
from this recently discovered local company soon !!

What could go better with our new incense than
a beautiful solid wood smokehouse? Made by a
German design company that works under the
roof of a 230 year old black forest house...
They work with local wood according to old craft
tradition while incorporating modern techniques.
The results are high quality products with pleasing
aesthetics emphasizing the natural beauty of wood.
We just love these little "rauchhaus" and had to get
them for the shop !! Available in either beech or
walnut with a steel base. (Shown in beech, top)

Large scale wall charts were fundamental tools
of classroom instruction throughout Europe in
the mid-nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Collected here for the first time in one deluxe
volume are over 100 of these vintage educational
posters. From the anatomy of a tulip to that of a
hedgehog, the botanical and zoological images in
this collection are captivating with their curious
visuals and intricate details. With a compelling
introduction about the history of the charts and
their production, The Art of Instruction provides
a glimpse into a rich, significant heritage and will
enlighten those with an interest in art, design,
science, or natural history.

Graphic Designer Paula Scher's new book Maps
covers her cartographic artwork from the late
1990's to present. She calls her large paintings
"distortions of reality" as they comment on the
world of information overload in a deeply personal
way. When Scher started painting her maps she
created them through her own altered lens,
understanding that inconsistencies were a part
of everyday life. Scher's colourful, multilayered
paintings present familiar geography in vibrant,
thoughtful new ways. As well as being visually
stunning, each map is also filled with information.
One titled "International Air Routes" includes airline
hubs, flight routes, airline names and time zones,
while another called "World Trade" outlines ports,
trade routes and currencies. Scher takes the reader
on a virtual world tour with a twist and her paintings
compel us to take a look at the idea of truth within
our own reality in the process.
