Shopping the World

We love our little hamlet, but once in a while we get inspired by new products from around the world. We bring our favourite finds to you this season at Granny Taught Us How & Heidi’s Room.

Genuine Hide Area Rugs

Genuine Hide Area RugsMake a centre-stage statement with these exotic hide area rugs, available in assorted sizes, shapes and colours, with natural variations in texture and pattern, making each rug one-of-a-kind. Besides the luxury of genuine hide, these rugs have the added bonus of easy care.

They will not stain: if you spill coffee on them, it just beads off. They do not hang on to dust either – a light vacuum once in a while is all they need – making them a great alternative to pile carpets.


Look Good Feel Good Cork Handbags!

Cork handbags We love the recent trend in the use of attractive natural cork by high-end accessory designers – we’ve offered a popular jewellery line and now these gorgeous luxury handbags. Hand-made in Europe with 100% premium cork from Portugal, where 70% of the world’s cork supply is grown, these handbags offer beauty in form and function. You also get to feel good about your choice: cork is a renewable resource, so no trees were harmed in the making of these fashions! In harvesting, the remarkable Cork Oak tree is not cut down – only the bark is removed, allowing the trees to live on for over 200 years, contributing to their rich ecosystems and absorbing carbon dioxide. The bark grows back naturally and can be harvested again every nine years.

Come in today to see our cork handbags – environmentally friendly, water resistant, hand-made and beautiful – the ultimate “eco-chic” accessory!

Cool Comfort

If the recent cool snap of fall has you thinking of wrapping up, you’ll love our new line of one-sized soft knit sweaters and capes from Canadian fashion label Charlie Paige. Choose from a variety of styles in black, charcoal and chocolate brown. Pair with leggings and boots for a slouchy chic ensemble that delivers both comfort and style.
