Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 12.11.17

OUR BEAUTIFUL NEIGHBOURHOOD has officially (and sadly) become gentrified. It began with a mom & pop card shop that shut down about two years ago, run by literally a mom & pop, she who squeezed my shoulder affectionally while telling me that “card” is “tarjeta” in Spanish once. Soon after, an upscale French cookware boutique opened, followed by a well-known British home décor shop. But, the most telling event occurred when a quirky mom & pop home store that had been operating for 75 years moved out of the neighbourhood, and in its place, a fold up city bicycle shop has now sprung up. These are bittersweet times indeed, but who can stand in the way of progress? This weekend we watched the Swedish film Force Majeure, directed by Ruben Östlund; it was a rather poignant look at what happens when one reacts to a situation in a manner that is less than what one would have expected, and the implications of these actions in the aftermath …

This week’s links include faux fur coats and chic metallic trousers, Maison Krug, Brutalist- and Bauhaus-Inspired Housewares, and much, much more.

P.S. our TIG email has not been functioning since last week (November 8); we’re working on fixing the issue, but know that we may have not received your message.
