Toronto Kinfolk Dinner // part 2

I am just so grateful to the shops who donated items for us at the dinner.  We were all blown away at the gesture, and completely excited to be on the receiving end of such generosity!  I feel compelled to share these amazing companies – a few of these are shops I frequent, and then there are a few new ones that I’ve fallen instantly in love with!

The first thing I did when I got home (literally, dropped my bags and got to work) was treat all my wooden utensils and boards with the Herriott Grace beeswax salve.  It smells amazing, and wooden things have never been happier in my kitchen.  (Especially my HG rolling pin! <3)

Silverplate Press provided lovely letterpressed recipe cards for us.  Check out the blog – they do amazing work!

Domestic Curator donated some amazing things!  I walked away with a pretty rolling pin!  So thankful for that one!

That pretty l’il olive wooden spoon is from a shop called Kipos!  BEAUTIFUL!

West Elm generously donated cutting boards, knives, cloth napkins, plates, and tea towels!  Whoa!  Completely blown away!

John and Juli, our lovely hosts, own the shop Mjölk, in Toronto.  They have a beautiful book they recently published, and they shared the first issue with all of us.  It’s gorgeous!  Dan and I had the chance to swing by their shop on our way out of town and I bought a beautiful black lacquered wooden spoon by Japanese artist Tomii Takashi.  I’m in love with a spoon!
Once again, I am just beyond thankful to have been a part of such a lovely event!  These shops are amazing, and worth checking out!

p.s. Anabela and Geoff from Fieldguided have a beautiful post about the dinner.  You should head over and check out all their photos!
