If you have visited our store in Merrickville, you have probably noticed one of the shoreline trees. These are fashioned from the inverted roots of teak trees. The glass vases are blown directly on to the root stems. Spectacular pieces of art.
We have explored ancient ruins all over the world, but nothing we have seen in our travels can compare to Angkor in Cambodia's northern province of Siem Reap. Angkor Archaeological Park contains the remains of successive capitals of the Khmer Empire, dating from the 9th to the 15th centuries. The entire site stretches over 400 square kilometers and was the centre of the Khmer Kingdom for centuries. The complex is home to scores of temples including Angkor Wat, the Bayon, Preah Khan and Ta Prohm. It is still home to several villages; in fact, some of the inhabitants can trace their ancestors to the Angkor period.
We are frequently asked how the shoreline products in our store are made? Scroll through the images below to see for yourself.
We usually try to visit places we have never been before when we are on one of our buying trips. Several years ago we decided to spend a week exploring the The Big Island of Hawaii. At the time of our visit, it was possible to view the lava flow emerging from The Kilauea volcano. To see the visible portion of the lava flow, it was necessary to hike over a very large moonscape of hardened lava to a distant point where you could see smoke rising and a slight glow. It was extremely difficult to see where the visible portion of the flow started during the day. In this clip, you can see a shaky portion where we discovered our shoes were starting to melt because we were actually standing on top of the lava flow and didn't realize it!
Hand woven Silk Buddhist Prayer Flag.
If you have been in our store or the Mainstreet Family Restaurant in Merrickville, you have probably seen some of our beautiful Buddhist Prayer Flags hanging on the walls. This video clip is one of the independent silk weavers we buy some of our silks from while we are traveling in Laos. Almost every home has one of these hand fashioned looms as the locals tend to make a lot of their own clothing.
Tragically, there are still some areas of Laos and Cambodia where unexploded ordnance left over from Vietnam war remains a serious hazard for both people and wildlife. Unfortunately, this elephant lost the lower portion of one of her front legs in a land mine explosion and has been fitted with a prosthetic leg at one of the sanctuaries we visited to allow the animal some degree of normal mobility.
We both have a background in wildlife conservation, so we often visit and support reserves or sanctuaries in the places where we travel. This is just outside an elephant sanctuary for retired working elephants in Laos. It is a well regarded operation that provides a high level of care for these animals.

While traveling around Northern Cambodia on one of our epic buying trips, we were lucky enough to witness the nightly spectacle of millions of bats emerging from the Battambang Bat Cave on their way to feed on insects for the evening.
Often when we are traveling on our buying trips, we will take spontaneous detours. Most of the time, these little diversions end up being our best memories, but occasionally things go off the rails, and so it was with our decision to take a three day kayaking trip in a relatively remote region of northern Laos. Looking back, the experience was amazing, but we honestly spent more time in the river than in the Kayaks!
We have a fantastic selection of outdoor mosquito coil holders, tealight holders and whimsical garden decor to brighten up your outdoor spaces. Each piece is hand painted, so virtually no two pieces are exactly the same. These are only a few examples, stop by for a visit to see the wide selection we have in stock.
This is one of our favorite destinations in Laos, one of the few places left in the world that offers an authentic cultural experience if you have an adventurous spirit. We were fortunate to be in the right place at the right time to witness the full moon festival at one of the Buddest temples in Luang Probang a few years ago. We actually ended up sponsoring the education of one of the young novice monks in this video. He has gone on to become quite successful managing a fair trade organization in Laos and is also a good friend.
