Old Faithful Shop. Vancouver, Canada.
Last week I decided it was time to visit the beautiful city of Vancouver in Canada. The city was just as I remembered it, filled with the nicest people, fantastic food and the greatest shops. I biked my way through the city to get an idea of the place before I walked it and as soon as I biked by Gastown I knew I had to go back to take a better look at some of the shops in the area. This is one my most favorite shop in Vancouver, the Old Faithful Shop had a great selection of products, an inspirational industrial decor and best of all the most welcoming staff. I could have stayed in the shop for another hour looking at all their product. I wished we had something like this right in Orange County, California.

These mugs always bring a smile to my face, they are fun and very simple. There is one for every one's style, they've got bow ties or different mustaches on each side. These are not only very useful for the much needed morning coffee or tea at the office but a great way to reduce the use of paper cups, so get a new mug and save the paper cups! These cups are designed by Peter Ibruegger who is based in the UK. If you want to see more of Peter's work click here.

Analog Clock By Anthony Dickens
The "Around The Clock" design by Anthony Dickens is an out of the box way of telling time. The cylinder rotates while the red line stays in place showing the time in intervals of 15 minutes.
