A gift giving staple for me has always been a mug – (giving or receiving, for the record). I use a mug for everything – coffee, tea, wine, beer (I know) – so getting a new one to add to the collection is a welcome addition.
Butcher’s Daughter, located at the top of the City Market, has a wonderful collection of local, regional, maritime and Canadian artists. Mugs, yes, but also jewelry, cards, soaps, pottery, paintings, sketches and much more.
When I dropped by earlier this week I fell in LOVE with quite a few items. I have some gift giving ideas for you below – but feel free to drop by today (or any day)!
I was TAKEN with these mugs by artist Therese Bombardier. I kept going back and looking at them over and over again. There’s something about straight lines and gold leaf on black and white mugs. This is where I’d insert the emoji with hearts for eyes.
I love these tight top mugs from Monique Duclos Pottery. She also has pottery travel mugs that (1) fit in your cars cup holders and (2) have cork tops!
The SJ cityscape series from Maru Pottery is fantastic. I love the bright colours and carved scenes around the tops. Look closely – you’ll see something you recognize! #3Sisters

And now for everyone’s favourite part!
I know you saw something above that you did a double take at – I also know that when you visit them week to get your extra 5 entries, you’ll see something else you like.
The Butcher’s Daughter has offered a $50 gift certificate to help you with your local Holiday Shopping! Fantastic!
