Something Special for Him

We just got this small and cute Dad's Day Display up at WALRUS. Its the first holiday display we've ever managed to do! I hope we do more like it because it was fun to think of which of our items would be good for the man or dad in your life, such as:
  • reclaimed wood wine stoppers
  • handmade wood sanding blocks and other wood tools
  • reclaimed wood handturned bowls, boxes and candleholders
  • vintage shaving sets
  • handmade reclaimed wood frame with nail image
  • vintage bottle candle holder       

One of our most special items that is totally unique and would make an amazing present for a dad is sitting on top of the display. Can you spot it? Its the upcycled vintage golf woodie coat or hat rack. Its made from old teak futon frames!

Here is a link to learn more about Tricia Wright from Re-wind Lab who makes these really special items for us. 

Hope to see you soon!
