Elsie's Library | Kelsey's Fall Reading list

The shop girls of Elsie Green love getting lost in the pages of a good book.

We keep a small library of books at the shop and regularly discuss what we're reading and loving right now.

I think bookshops in foreign cities are often overlooked as windows into the city's culture. It's a great way to meet locals and spend a quiet day slowing down the pace of your travels.

Directly from JP's lips, behold the best organic roasted turkey recipe we know.  JP would like you to know that this turkey will be delicious, but kind of ugly because of his unique roasting technique.

collection of silver spoons

Collectors at Heart | Vintage Silver

We think the secret to creating a good collection is in not just amassing something in volume, but in collecting individual pieces you appreciate for their unique qualities.   Often we'll find one of the shop girls going through each christening cup in a large bin, admiring back stamps and monograms.

Cheese boards, butter boards and bagel boards have all had their moment in the zeitgeist.  But we like to think we were out ahead of the trend.
