From what we’ve gathered, many of our younger shoppers love to clean. They usually bypass the books and toys we have out and go straight to the brushes and cleaning tools we sell, very intent on cleaning our shop! This got us thinking that we should have some good cleaning tools that fit their little hands and stature, making it easier to help around the house.
Introducing beautiful brooms, hand brushes and dust pans from Germany. Just like the adult versions we carry, they are made from sturdy natural materials (wood, metal, rice straw and horse hair) that are meant to last. These could be something they pass down to their own children one day.
The other day, our friend A. stopped by to play with our new tools. You can better see the scale of the products in these shots. We wish we could hire her!
We will be closed for a few days to do some light renovations and installing a new, more efficient POS system in order to better serve our customers in this new year.
Please take stock of what you may need before we close and thanks for your patience.

Shaving doesn’t have to be all about disposable plastic razors and shaving cream out of a can. Made from various fine metals, natural resin, animal hair, plant fibre and wood, these tools can make your shaving ritual easier, faster, more affordable (in the long run), more pleasurable and definitely more sustainable.
