Ladies and gentlemen, Valentine’s Day is upon us. This holiday conjures up love and romance, and understandably so. Yet, we think a modern interpretation of this holiday includes love in its numerous forms. A gift of jewellery is thoughtful and personal in nature. It’s an ideal gift for a loved one. It’s also a great gift for yourself and a beautiful act of self-love.
This bring us to Gabriela Artigas Jewellery; an essential line here at the Whitebeam Shop.
Hello and happiest New Year! Did you have a wonderful holiday season? We do hope so.
Our first commitment for the new year is to treat our bodies better. This starts with eating well and detoxifying from the decadence of the holidays. We begin by grabbing a Filt bag and heading to the local farmer’s market. Having all sorts of lovely produce on hand encourages us to make nourishing homemade meals at home. Our elegant line of Uzenyaki ceramics inspires us to stick with this practice. These beautiful bowls are ideal for all things healthy: soups, salads, grain bowls. And the mugs are perfect for turmeric, green, and herbal teas.
Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come. Are you ready to select gifts for those nearest and dearest to you? Your better half, your parents, your goofy sister and her family—the most important, therefore, most difficult people to shop for.
We understand the pressure. You care so much about selecting something just right. It feels really good to see one’s eyes light up as they’re opening your gift. That’s how you know you nailed it. This is what we strive for here at the Whitebeam Shop.
Are we really here? It appears so, everyone. It’s that time of year again and the holidays are upon us. The good news is we’ve made it easier for you.
We recommend getting the small gifts out of the way. You know, the ones for friends or coworkers. Perhaps for a neighbor who drops by with a gift. You may also need a little something to bring to a party.
We’ve put together a selection of gifts to suit each situation. Don’t worry we know the rules. These are all inexpensive, stylish, and useful. (Useful being key, because crap gifts are truly the worst!) Here are some goodies we’d personally be thrilled to receive:
Hello there and welcome to Autumn. It is, arguably, the best of the seasons. The weather is mild with just a bit of crispness. We feel motivated and inspired. Perhaps we’re conditioned from the school schedules of our youth, but we’re itching to be productive.
Appropriately enough, we turn to a university student to share his essentials for the coming season. Julien Bergeron is a 21 year-old student at the University of Limoges and the writer behind French fashion and lifestyle blog, Hensenberge. He works on Heisenberge with his girlfriend, Melissa, who is the force behind the photos on the site.
What can we expect from your stay at BOXPARK?
This pop-up allows us to meet and interact with shoppers. As an online shop, we have the advantage of reaching a broad customer base. That said, this event provides the opportunity of being amongst the community. In addition, we will highlight some of our more tactile and sensory products: hand-made ceramics, rain jackets, soaps, candles, and so forth. It will be great to talk to shoppers as they touch, smell, and try on.
Today we introduce you to Unzenyaki Studio, an artisan and new Whitebeam vendor from Unzen, Japan. We fell in love with studio’s pieces and are proud to be the first stockist to carry their items outside of Nagasaki, Japan.
Hiroki Ishikawa stems from a long line of ceramicists and is presently the eighth generation of his family to practice this craft. In fact, both of his parents have their own line of goods as well.
We checked in with Matt Porter for a tête-à-tête. You may be familiar with his well-curated Instagram account, where we, amongst his many followers, appreciate his eye for good design and appetite for travel. If not, let us introduce you.
Dear readers, what goodness have you planned for the months ahead? Will you be gallivanting to adventures near and far? Perhaps you’re laying low and taking it easy at home? We hear you. Its wonderful when everyone leaves on holiday and things quiet down around here.
Market season ushers in much excitement here at the Whitebeam Shop. It introduces what’s to come and helps us map the rest of the year.
