Shop Local 4.0

Today's instalment of Shop Local is one I'm really excited about, because it is the shop of my dear dear friend Jenna! Jenna is the design guru and tastemaker behind Plum Home & Design, one of my absolute favourite stops in town!

Plum has everything from one of a kind antiques to modern accessories to baby toys to handmade jewellery. But it all comes together in an effortless, cohesive way in the perfect eclectic mix, which is why I find it such an inspiring place.

One of my other favourite things about Plum is that Jenna is extremely passionate about supporting small, local vendors as well as small suppliers across the country. It is a great place to find the next up and coming brand or trend.

If you are looking for gifts or decor that you won't find in anywhere else, you are guaranteed to find what you're looking for. Some of my favourite things around the house were found in the odd corner at Plum (like my Banquet Workshop heart).

Seriously though, this pink Juju hat is probably my favourite thing ever!

Copper toned ornaments? yes please!

I can't ever leave without restocking my stationary drawer. There is a handmade card and wrapping supplies for any event imaginable, usually for the same price or less than you will pay at any grocery store or book store.

These matte, handmade tumblers have me OBSESSED!!! 

If you are in the Edmonton area, definitely stop by and take in the eye candy for yourself! And if not, you can always find Jenna and Plum online right here. Thanks to the ladies of Plum for letting me poke around!!

Shop Local. 3.0

Today I am super excited to share one of our cities hippest underground (literally) children's clothing stores! The Skinny is the creative outlet and brainchild of my lovely, funny, lively and amazing friend Erinn. She started out with an online boutique, and has recently taken up residence in the basement of the Mercer Building downtown in the incredibly hip and unique Vacancy Hall.

Erinn is a mom to 3 boys (including a set of twins!) and she understands kids clothes need to be durable, wearable and yet cool! And the clothes at The Skinny are pretty much the coolest. 

Erinn is teaming up with Berg & Betts for the holidays to do a collaboration of reclaimed leather bow ties and hair bows. They are on her site already, and incredibly precious.

The clothing is all coordinated beautifully, and Erinn has a great eye for pulling together combinations that look effortlessly chic. I only wished some of the pieces came in my size!

The Beauty behind the brand!

Please stop by and say Hi! on The Skinny site ( you can save shipping if you pick up!) or make your way down to the Mercer and check it out in person. You will be oohhh-ing and ahhh-ing left and right! And definitely stay tuned to check out Erinn's first line of Spring/Summer clothes she designed herself coming late Winter/early Spring!!
