1 Year today

December 15th, 2010

It was 1 year today that we opened our doors for the first time.

To mark the 1 year anniversary we had our friend Lindsey —Lindsey Bakes— to bake us a collection of Moomin cookies, she did an amazing job, and they are just as tasty as they look. We’ll be giving them out for free all day (while we have them) so please stop by if you’re in the neighborhood.

They last a while and a customer has already mentioned she’s going to be hanging her cookie on her Christmas tree.

If you’re wondering where we got the beautiful wooden plate to display the cookies, it’s a new product line we have in the store by Rina Ono, a series of soft egg shaped serving pieces.

A year after opening, the symbolism of milk is just as strong. Our focus for our future is about nurturing. Providing a gallery space for new limited production design by emerging designers from Scandinavia and Japan, nurturing their creativity as they grow together with our store. We have some exciting new products that we can’t wait to share!

We started Kitka before we had the store, and it’s been the continued support from you guys that really pushed us to open the store. We can’t thank you enough, but we thought we’d give away a whole family of Kristian Vedel birds as a token of our appreciation.

To enter, just leave a comment! We’ll have a draw Tuesday to announce the winner.

NOTE: Sorry if your comments are not showing up – wait a few days and if it doesn’t appear, try again.
