Sarah's Parkette Picks

Dear Parkette Pals, 

December is finally here and with it and the cold weather comes the first of our gift guides dedicated to the kids-at-heart!

If you've shopped in person with us you will have had the pleasure of meeting Sarah, the master architect of our window displays. Aside from being a super talented artist, Sarah loves colour and baking, has a great eye for vintage and is always on the lookout for cute props to decorate her apartment ✨

These are her 5 Parkette picks:

1. Family Dinner Night 1000 Piece Puzzle: This family dinner party has the most intriguing guests—children, adults, and animals—all eating, singing, and enjoying one another’s company. All are welcome! Pull a chair up to the table and celebrate with this colourful and whimsical risograph-style illustration by Asahi Nagata. Observe the bass-playing crocodile on the mezzanine, the mice watching the festivities from the bookshelf, and the little animals lying in wait under the table. It will be a night to remember. Glossy, sturdy pieces and minimal puzzle dust 🧩

2. Ruth Wilde 'I've Always Been A Late Bloomer' Ceramic Mug: Ruth Wilde makes ceramics for sensitive souls from her studio located in Grimsby, United Kingdom. This mug reading ‘I’ve Always Been a Late Bloomer’ has been illustrated with underglaze and underglaze pencil, glazed in a food safe clear glaze and is made from durable stoneware clay for clumsy hands. It’s also dishwasher safe although hand washing is recommended ☕️

3. Vintage Wooden Telephone Toy: A nostalgic retro phone designed in Japan by kiko+ & gg* that’s also a cute interior decorative item. Insert the included coin and turn the dial to talk.  When the call is over and the handset is reset, your change is magically returned. The set includes a coin case and 5 coins. You could call a friend, or would you like to call a store or restaurant? We’d love to hear from you ;) ☎️

4. Set of 2 Scallop Hair Clips / Set of 2 Flower Hair Clips: Cellulose acetate hair clips lovingly made in France for Wunderkin & Co. They measure approximately 3/8 x 2 inches. Sold in a set of 2 clips! If you visit us in person, you’re welcome to mix and match available styles and colours ✿

5. Lunch Lady Magazine: Lunch Lady is a magazine where parenting is not taken too seriously but a balanced approach to family life is. Colourful, thoughtful and full-of-cheek, it reminds parents to keep things in perspective and have fun. It’s a beautifully printed kitchen keepsake full of recipes, inspiring family stories, photography, art + kids cooking ideas and funny, relatable opinion pieces about the ups and downs of raising children 📚
