Where I Shop: Chapters/Indigo (Holiday Edition)

Can you believe there are only 8 days left until Christmas?!! Where did the time go?? I still have a couple of people on my list to buy gifts for, but I'm not stressed about it, I already know what I want to get them, it's just a matter of getting out there and buying it. I'll be spending this last weekend before Christmas doing my last minute shopping and present-wrapping. If you'll be doing the same then I suggest you spend some time checking out Chapters/Indigo. If you think that this is only a bookstore, you need to reacquint yourself because they have so much more than that - they have a wide selection of home decor items, tabletop and entertaining, tech products, toys, fashion accessories, and so much more. There will be something for everyone on your list whether you are shopping for a parent, a friend, or a child. Or for yourself! Just check out the amazingness of the holiday products this year:

The red and black buffalo check and faux fur mixed with natural woods gives this scene a very Canadiana cabin vibe.

Black and white is my favourite combo, I'm loving this tabletop setting!

Glassware of all types to stock your bar. There is a glass for every type of drink you can think of.

I love all of the marble and wood items. Marble is timeless and never goes out of style but can sometimes be a bit cold; the mix of wood on these pieces warms up the look.


Here are some of my favourite items from Chapters/Indigo:

Moose Snow Globe / Round Wood & Marble Board / Woodland Animal Lowball Glasses /
Gold Cursive Mug / Snow Covered Pine Candle / Gold Rim Vintage Coupe Glasses /
Cabin Check Throw / Cloch with Base / Luxe Cozy Throw

I purchased this moose snow globe for myself, it's a stunning piece that I know I will be bringing out of storage at Christmas each year for many years to come.

This snow covered pine-scented candle smells so real, it is the perfect item for anyone who has an artificial tree but wants the smell of a real tree. It burns very slowly, I'm amazed and impressed by how long it lasts.

This glass cloche with wooden base is so versatile - fill it with pinecones and battery operated twinkle lights, a colourful mix of ornaments, or cover the bottom with fake snow and set up a craft-store mini tree under the dome. You don't have to put this away when the holidays are over - it's a great piece for displaying any of your treasures year-round.

If you'll be out shopping this weekend, make sure to pop into a Chapters or an Indigo store to see the beautiful holiday items. The photos shown here are pictures I took at the holiday media preview last July, but the store set-up looks just a great. If you're doing your shopping from home, it's not too late to order online and still receive your purchase in time for Christmas (check the site though for shipping deadlines to be sure). 

Indigo/Chapters Holiday Products - Sneak Peak!

Last week, Indigo/Chapters held a media preview to showcase the products that will be in stores this holiday season.  My lucky readers - I have a sneak peak just for you!  

The dining table display mixed neutral ceramics with richly coloured napkins and glasses, and was under a canopy of twinkling garlands.  

The bar cart area featured glittering gold and silver bar accessories like trays, goblets and cocktail shakers.  

Monograms are making a comeback.  I've seen a resurgence of monogrammed bedding, towels, throw pillows, and other home decor items.  Now, you can get monogrammed wall art in the letter(s) of your choice.  Also available in silver.  
There's also a selection of pillow covers and throws in a wide variety of textures and fabrics. 

Scented candles: my faves were Mulled Wine and Cedar & Balsam.  What does mulled wine smell like, you ask?  Like Christmas.  It smells like Christmas.  

Don't let the grey days of winter get you down - accessorize with bright colours! From scarves to jewellery to handbags, the fashion accessories available at Indigo/Chapters this holiday are gorgeous.  

This was one of my favourite items from the media preview - this luxuriously soft and silky multi-toned blue scarf (middle of photo).  

Another of my favourite items - the leopard-print pouch (at right).  Though I must say, the black and gold foldover pouches are nice too (top right and bottom left).  

Original prints by Stephanie Sterjovski of SS Print Shop are growing in popularity and now they can be purchased in store or online at indigo.ca.  

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak of holiday products coming to Indigo/Chapters this holiday season! These lovely items will be starting to appear in stores for November, so you can get your hands on your favourite items soon!
