Flat Pet - Rabbit
is this flat pet? For those of your who live in a small space, or even a spacious one for that matter, know that having a pet is a big commitment. So, if your kid is hounding you for one, this could be an ideal temporary substitute. Besides the bunny, flat pet also comes in a wee kitty and an adorable puppy that would make anyone smile. And hey, maybe it’ll buy you some time in avoiding scooping cat litter or walking the dog in nasty weather. These can all be found at UP TO YOU, a concept shop based in Toronto that carries a selection of hard to find goods.

Loyal Loot Log Bowls
anything like these log bowls before, but I think they’re kind of great. Provide, a store in Canada that sells a curated assortment of contemporary goods for the home carries them. They are made by Loyal Loot and are a cool way to use local reclaimed trees in a functional way. Each one is made by hand from actual logs, so no two are alike. They are finished with a water-based, furniture grade finish and come in a ton of sizes and colors. A great way to add a simple statement to any table or shelf.

Charlie Unisex Diaper Bag
somebody gets it. The Charlie canvas diaper bag by SoYoung Mother is a breath of fresh air in the saturated and over designed world of baby gear. I tried for a long time to only carry a tote, but that just left me digging through diapers to get to my keys (which I can NEVER find to begin with). SYM is based out of Canada (run by a mom of course), and not only makes great bags but also unisex coolers and lunch boxes that can be shared between the whole gang.

Cement Pearl Earrings, $35
traditional pearl earrings, but made with cement so they have a bit of an edge. Each concrete ball is cast by hand and set on a silver post. These cement pearls are made and sold at Metsa Design, a shop in Toronto that believes in making items with a lot of care and from quality materials. Totally reasonable and great for everyday wear – especially since the color deepens overtime as the cement is exposed to air and oils. Perfect with jeans & a tee.
