Bacon and Cupcakes and Pickles, Oh My!

Bacon and cupcakes and pickles...and maybe more bacon!

Bacon is no longer just a salty treat, it's a lifestyle! Bacon floss, toothpicks and toothpaste will give you your post bacon-eating fix if you can't resist just a little more bacon! Bacon balm will keep your lips bacon-y soft, and bacon soap will wash leave you bacon-y clean! If you happen to need a band-aid, sterile bacon and eggs bandages ensure fast healing in true bacon-y fashion! (All available at Whyte Avenue, bacon toothpaste and bandages are also available at High Street). 

Perhaps you're more of a cupcake fancier, in which case these cupcake bandages, dental floss, and toothpaste are certain to satisfy your sweet tooth! (Available at Whyte Avenue, toothpaste also available at High Street.)

And, no fear if bacon and cupcakes don't quite do the trick for you, because pickles are here! Pucker up with pickle flavored toothpaste and lip balm! (Both products are available at Whyte Avenue.)

Entertain in Style with the Tin Box!

Perhaps you are planning to catch up with friends over a tea party this summer. Or maybe wine and tapas is more your style. Either way, we have the exact things you will need to make the most of your summer entertaining!
Throw a royal tea party with William and Katea, a set of two themed tea bags available at Whyte Ave. We think these would add some fun to sipping tea with any Royal fan as well as making any girl who is newlywed or soon to be wed smile like a princess! 
And why not turn your tea party into a family affair with this royal family-themed tea bag set? And if the royal family isn't quite your (excuse the pun!) cup of tea, drop by and check out our other themed tea bag sets, tea infusers, tea pots, mugs and travel mugs!
In the olden days, tea storage chests were often a highly coveted item in one's home. Today they make a thoughtful hostess gift and are a great way to keep your cupboards organized. And with clear lids we think that as well as being wonderful for organizing tea, they could also be used to organize other items in the home. This storage box is made of eco-friendly bamboo.

For evenings of tasty snacks shared over laughs and a glass or two of wine, we recommend these classy serving sets to keep snacking simple!
Perfect for specialty dips and mustards, samplings of different cheeses, pickles, olives, and nuts, these serving sets are available in various styles and sizes.
Sleek and modern with bamboo bases, these sets are easy to clean and care for, and their bowls are oven safe at lower temperatures in the event that you need to warm a dip in the oven prior to serving.
When serving wine, we love the Vinturi aerator, which will maximize your wine's bouquet. Available for white and red wine, these high quality aerators make great gifts and Vinturi aerator stands are also available in store.
