November has arrived with a bang. Lots of things in the works here at Tum Tum Tree Designs, now located in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia. Fall is in full swing and the colours of nature are out in all their glory.
Check out the November issue of Shared Vision Magazine where the coffee cozy strikes again. Thanks to the great little write-up in the EnVision section titled “Take it or Sleeve it”,more of the coffee cozies will be flying off the shelves. Have we mentioned that these make great little gifts, especially with a coffee card to a certain someone’s favourite java venue?
You can find these babies at HT Naturals, the retail store at Clark and Venables in Vancouver as well as in a newer shop here in Kelowna called Shop the Valley.
Shop the Valley (the Shop) is the brainchild of Tommi Hanley of Shop the Valley Destination Management Company. The new retail store is located at the premises of another local wine & dine destination, Summerhill Pyramid Winery. While Shop the Valley, (the Shop) is run independently of Summerhill, they share some of the same core values. Namely, the ideal to support local sources and help keep the area economy thriving. All of the beautiful items at Shop the Valley are made by local artisans here in where else but, the Okanagan Valley.
Tum Tum Tree Designs has some of the first of the housewares line available at Shop the Valley. Some lovely hemp napkins as well as the coffee cozies can be found there as of today.
Tomorrow is the open-house and meet and greet event at Shop the Valley from 10 AM until 6 PM. If you are in the area, drop in and check it out. There will be sampling and special promotions going on all day as well as artist presentations. There are all kinds of artisans represented here; from painters, stained glass artists and quilters to name a few. Come by the Summerhill Winery and see what it’s all about at 4870 Chute Lake Road, Kelowna BC. See you there!
