For this month's edition of Gift Card, I'm excited to introduce SOUVENIR Studios. I love SOUVENIR's mix of contemporary craft, vintage treasures, under the radar cosmetics, and cozy apparel, all displayed in a beautiful, minimal environment. After visiting several of their charming pop up shops around the city during the past year (and discovering my new favourite candle there), I was so thrilled when SOUVENIR announced that they would be opening a brick and mortar shop in Fall 2015.
More from SOUVENIR's co-owners, Danielle Suppa and Trisha Lepper: "To keep the pop up spirit alive, the current space was designed as a multi purpose and ever changing home to showcase and collaborate with the creative community at large. The main focus of SOUVENIR is to create a collaborative and dynamic space to offer a new and evolving vision of contemporary design. Beyond simply selling goods, our true purpose is to foster meaningful connections between our designers, our customers, our space and our products. We believe in and support a range of design that is modern, innovative, accessible, beautifully executed, and above all - purposefully and lovingly made."
Danielle and Trisha put together two unique gifts using an array of items from SOUVENIR's shelves (and walls.)
The Honeymooners Pack - $255 + tax
Plaj Turkish towel, Artifact Skin Co. cinnamon sage lip balm, SOUVENIR copper book darts, Appointed linen journal
Aunt Rae leather travel bag, Harlow Rain Waves hair tonic, Harlow body whip, Ville Marie candle
Snap + Tumble x SOUVENIR Love Love Love Letterpress card
"This gift was created with the travelling couple in mind and includes products that appeal to him and her. They are luxurious, practical (and packable!) items to take to a multitude of destinations and allow the couple to relax and enjoy their trip throughout as well as remember it for years afterwards."
Limited Edition Art Prints from Sagan Editions
Two sizes available
12" x 16" - $150 ($300 framed)
16" x 20" - $200 ($400 framed)
"Buying someone a piece of art is an incredibly special and personal gift. Sagan Editions are extra special because you are not only supporting the artists themselves but also the thoughtful work and approach of curator/owner Sagan MacIsaac. The 3 prints we currently have available are very diverse but appeal to a wide audience of art appreciators, besides being of exceptional quality as well."
Thanks for the visit ladies! It's safe to say that I want everything in this shop!
