Chapters/Indigo Holiday Preview

Last week, I along with a few other bloggers were invited to the Chapters/Indigo Holiday Preview event downtown Vancouver. As a fan of their book collection and now all the fabulous home decor/gifts selection I was curious to see what they had in store for us! 

They did not disappoint.

Would love these salt and pepper shakers on my table.

The items for the upcoming fall and holiday season were beautifully displayed. It got us all excited for the upcoming fall season. Chapters/Indigo is my go-to source for one-of-a-kind gifts - and their newest collections is even more fantastic! What I love is their tasteful selection, you can be sure that your gift will be a hit. Recently I bought two amazing teachers that my eldest had who went above and beyond their call of duty, a Voluspa candle. They adored the tin it came in and the scent was heavenly. 

But what is a great media event without some hilarity thrown in! I laughed when a certain blogger {we won't name any names} sniffed the highball glass to check if there was real liquor in the glasses. And the nuts in the bowl, they were given the sniff test as well! Lets just say we all had fun hanging out! A few enjoyed wearing the fur ear muffs and hats in the summer heat, their on-hand photographer managed to get more than a few entertaining shots from us!

 The icing on the cake? Rob Feenie, Vancouver's celebrity chef whipped up some amazing bites from his newest cookbook for us to nibble on while browsing and socializing. We had a chance to meet him, and have him autograph his latest cookbook that came in our swag bag!

And here is the swag bag we received! We were given two youth books that have yet to be sold on shelves! My son was really excited to read them before anyone else!

So if you ever need a great gift, don't forget to pop into your local Chapters or Indigo store!

PS. For my American friends, Chapters/Indigo is similar to your Barnes and Noble!

  9. I love Indigo/Chapters - and some people have no idea the gems beyond the books. My gifts that have got the best reactions have been for their! Found your blog through Michaela Noelle today - fellow Canadian blogger, I'm fairly new and learning the ropes but definetly will be looking around and following! Cheers

  10. It was really nice to hang with my hodge podge girl. You now know what I want for Christmas? ..... here's a hint, they are furry and cover my ears.... no wait, I think I like the hat better. I won't be able to hear anything with the muffs on. Ewwww muffs, that sounds a bit bad.

  11. It was a fun afternoon! I love seeing what other people are drawn to with their photos. Maybe Santa will bring you the owly s+p shakers. You never did tell what the sniff test revealed...was it real booze in the glass???
