We're settling into a pretty great routine but still pinching ourselves over here. The Win This Space posters all over town are a fun reminder that this time last year we didn't even know each other Watson & Lou wasn't much more than a twinkle in our eyes.
Much like the past year, our second month in business has been a delightful blur. From impossibly gorgeous sold out workshops to our first maker meeting, our entrepreneurial exhaustion has been balanced by a warm & fuzzy sense of community.
Sincere thanks to our customers, workshop facilitators, studio renters, members, and artists for making this experience so magical.
NEW IN STORE
We now carry the bathymetric paper artwork of Cardtography from London Ontario, the playful alphabet prints of Lily Kao Designs from Toronto, a new Peterborough Neighbourhoods graphic design by Rachel Gagnon, plus some spiffy new selections from Swell Made Co. and Stay Home Club.
We're all restocked with Bailiwick animal air planters, and have four one-of-a-kind Burn Island saws to choose from.
We are also very excited to welcome brand new #ptbomakers Nadine of Willow's Bark and Autumn of Petit Lapin to the Watson&Lou family. We're in love with everything about this stuff! The natural scents, consistency, high quality ingredients, and beautiful packaging make these lines a sure bet for well-received holiday gifts.
November will bring us new standees and prints from Lucky Jenny Jackson, card packs from Jackson Creek Press and Brianna Gosselin, delicious soaps, bath bombs, plus plenty more reusable pads from County Cloth Creations to help you manage your Aunt Flo.
