Sonse Home Design is a store that offers so much tucked into a small space. It’s lovely having a shop open in uptown New Westminster that offers what she offers – from small gifts to furniture to art and accessories. Proprietor Joanne also has everything beautifully displayed and has an incredible eye for emerging trends. We’ve written about Sonse Home Design before, back when it had just opened. I stopped by yesterday to finish off my Christmas shopping, and Joanne had just what I needed. I picked up three amazing Skeem candles (Peach Velvet – oh my!) that will burn for 50 hours (oh my again!) to add to some stockings, and I found a number of gifts that Santa could put under my tree. This beautiful stand up clock, for example:

My shopping partner fell for a beautiful hot pink picture frame and a corkscrew with a vintage faucet handle. My son was pretty in love with blue cushions with a great zig zag pattern. It was busy (yay for shopping local) or I would have stayed to chat with Joanne some more. Sonse offers the frosting every home needs. Make plans to stop in at Sonse – they probably have what you are looking for! Right now almost everything is on sale for the holidays.

They are online and also on Twitter and Facebook, or call at 604-522-3377.
