With Winter of 2018/2019 lasting, what seems like, forever we couldn’t help but be excited for a change of season. One of our favourite times of the year is transforming the store from Winter to Spring, and we wanted to share the feeling with you. After arriving home from 4 trade shows, we have gathered a unique collection of goodies, some expansion on existing lines as well as brand new companies we think you are going to love! The colours, styles, and textures of 2019 have been nothing less than impressive and we couldn’t be more excited to share them with you, because we know you’ll love them too!
Suzanne and Marlene share some of their favourite 2019 Spring trends.

A few candle lines we have recently fallen in love with are making a conscious effort in becoming more environmentally friendly by switching to a soy base, trading in the traditional wick for a wood wick, and using a vessel that can be re-purposed. Along with taking better care of the Earth, it is important to take better care of ourselves. Wellness isn’t just a trendy word in 2019, it should be a ritual you incorporate into your daily routine. Wellness items like essential oils, diffusers, body care products, and apothecary are gaining major popularity.
Lastly, houseplants are becoming more popular with every passing year, as they bring the freshness of the outdoors into your home. Succulents, Fiddle Leaf Ficus and Cacti have remained on top for trending houseplants, but we have seen some new emerging
