Tucked inside a red barn in Calgary, you'll find the new Livery Shop. All things Camp Brand Goods, Coutu Kitsch, and lots of other fun local goods. Also, loving how comfy and well cut their tees are. (Yay, Bison + Happy Campers!)
Dog Sledding! Driving a dog sled for the first time was incredible, especially around Spray Lakes, Canmore! See videos of them in action, as well as close ups of the adorably lovable dogs of Snowy Owl Sled Dog Tours.
Ice Climbing! I can't believe I just ice climbed up that frozen icy wall in Johnston Canyon in Banff National Park. See what our first intro climb was like with the legendary Barry Blanchard of Yamnuska Mountain Adventures.
Studio Vit Cone Lights - "It consists of two elementary forms, the cone and the sphere, that are combined in different ways. Spheres in handblown glass and cones in matt white or mirror polished metal"
The Prairie Creek Inn in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta is a luxurious bed & breakfast. Peek inside their Aspen Tree House which feels like the perfect log cabin in the woods! We even curled up by the fire pit while it was snowing!
Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep so dramatically posed in the snow in front of the frozen Abraham Lake in Alberta. How could we not stop when these guys are walking across the highway and hopping the barrier?
Duchess Bake Shop & Provisions in Edmonton have become quite the pastry destination. Provisions offers an impressive selection of hard to find baking ingredients, tools, and cookbooks. Take a peek inside, and at their new cookbook!
Icewalk through Maligne Canyon in Jasper National Park. Over and under the ice shelves (i crawled in there!), squeezing behind walls of ice and more to experience the inspiring ice formations. Bucket list worthy for sure.
Oliver Apt Cutting Board Workshop in Edmonton! We hop in the studio with 3rd generation carpenter/designer, Landon Schedler, and make laminated, faceted, walnut and maple cutting boards. See how it's done.
Elk Island National Park is filled with Bison! (They also have adorable stress bison in their visitor's center) And it is just outside Edmonton! Incredible how many bison you can see even from the highway going through.
#NOTCOTinALBERTA - see part I: exploring fall with bucky! See some of the amazing sites and creatures we saw! Starting today is part II. We'll be in Alberta dog sledding, ice climbing, and more for a week! (Follow on instagram: @NOTlabs)
Pivotte! Why aren't all clothes both beautiful and durable? Pivotte is kickstarting women's work/play basics, out of a signature tailored stretch fabric to be flattering, comfortable and resistant to water and stains!
Adobe's Kickbox - a red box filled with Money ($1000), Instructions, Innovation Tools, and Caffeine/Sugar (Starbucks card + chocolate) that any employee can request. You can also download the materials and kickbox yourself!
Mischer'Traxler's flute for Perrier-Jouët makes the bubbles come from the moth! Such a nice use of the fact that bubbles form from the imperfections of the glass. Incredible that they managed to etch inside it so delicately.
The NOTCOT In Plain Sight Collection of blacked out leather retroflectors! Black on black until you FLASH them (with a camera flash, car lights, etc.) Limited edition and handmade at NOTlabs from vegetable tanned leather.
An Instagram look at what we've been up to (with more context) - peeks at This Is Ground leather organizer, Plumen bulb, IN.SEK concrete, apple ribbons, new stove, Baja research, NOTFZJ electronics and more!
Boot Slippers - "Easy to fit over footwear, these felt overshoes let you step in from the garden for a drink without leaving a trail of wet or muddy footprints. If needed, you can lift the rubber-lined flap to help hold them against your heel."
