Hidden Message Cups $39/set

Lucky Strike Cookie Jar (my favourite thing ever) $74
Tea cup set $87, s+p (and sugar) set $35

There is so much more new BEAUTIFUL merchandise in the shop right now, but instead of blogging about it, I need to get it out on the floor like a good shop owner...

On a side note, how is everyone doing in the holiday survival spectrum? How many parties have you been invited to this weekend? Things a getting a bit 'cray' (as jay-z and kanye would say) up in the Junction on the party front, and we are hosting our annual Fancy Party this weekend at home, so when you see me Sunday just smile and act like we don't both know that I am wearing last night's make-up ok? If you are in the same boat as me, which I'm sure many of you will be, give me a signal for solidarity! XOXO R&E

We are open 'till 8 tonight!

This Friday night, Russet & Empire and our neighbours in the Junction  Mrs Huizenga  will be open until 8 for all of your holiday shopping needs.  We also just got a record player, so we will be spinning tunes and probably having a few sneaky cocktails to add to the festive atmosphere.  Also, if you can tell us where to get new vinyl in the hood that would be great too!

 Faberge Egg x Caribou Antlers $34
Faberge Egg x Horse Hooves $34

Dollars to donuts- if you actually fill these with some jewellery, you will 100% get some hot holiday action. You're welcome. XO

All the drilling and cursing you hear coming from the back of the shop, it's these guys. Sorry for the iPhone photo...


After what was supposed to be a two hour project, turned into a week-long affair, our noel sign is installed and ready to draw crowds!
