Today I (finally!) made it in to Mjölk (pron. Mi-Yelk) and met the owners Juli and John. They're a lovely couple, and their shop is in-credible. I want to live in it. I'd like every piece of housewares they carry. And furniture. Oh, and lighting...
Here are a couple of my favorite things from the shop; the Kaico Milk Pan, designed by Makoto Koizumi, and the Kami Mug, by Oji Masanori. I seem to gravitate toward the Japanese Scandinavian-inspired design. I really couldn't pick what my favorite objects were, but these are just a couple.
I wish I'd brought my camera! But there are some very pretty photos and a great write-up on Anabela's blog!
I love a good reason to visit the Junction. It's such a nice neighbourhood, and changing so quickly, there'ssomething new each time I visit. It's always fun to bike along the new Rail Trail, (and it was actually nice and cool in the shade!). We also found a couple of great, newer vintage/antique places, and, (on Juli's advice), checked out new cafe The Good Neighbour. It was such a pretty space, and had great coffee and treats. I had an iced coffee and savoury white cheddar and chive scone, and nikki had an iced chai latte, (which was AMAZING), and lemon and ginger scone. I recommend all of them very highly.
PS - Thanks to everyone for your support and sweet comments regarding my last post about Chris' stolen bike. Still no sign of it, but he's looking for a new one, and a very good lock. xo
