February at the Farm

Welcome to Springridge Farm's new retail blog! Even though we are closed to the public over the winter, our staff is busy preparing for the 2010 season.

Springridge staff recently scouted out new merchandise at the By Hand Show in Toronto. The show featured artisans from all over Canada, who specialized in handmade glass, jewelry, woodwork, pottery and home decor items. We have an increased interest in finding merchandise produced locally and the show provided us with lots of fresh ideas for our customers.

Last week, our buyers also attended the Canadian Gift & Tableware Association Gift Show. The show was host to over 1,000 exhibitors and we are excited to bring some innovative products into our store this year.

Springing ahead to what you can look forward to when we re-open on April 1:

We are celebrating 50 years on the farm and we would like you to join us in embracing classic items that will have longevity in your household.

We are expanding our popular Canadian-made collection. In addition to carved maple bowls, rock inukshuks and pottery, look for our new wine barrel platters and fused glass serving pieces.

Enjoy new items in our nautical section. If you can't make the trip to Cape Cod this summer, you can still get inspired by our seafaring merchandise.

You will find a pop of colour in our home decor displays. This season is all about incorporating bold colours and we are featuring accent pieces in turquoise and green.

Looking forward to sharing retail tidbits, tips and trends. Check back soon!
