I had heard about this new home decor shop located on Laurier called Buk & Nola online and in magazines like Style At Home and House & Home as well as many blogs like my fave LakeJane and DamasketDentelle. With each new press that I read, the structure of the shop remained the same but the merchandise changed with each new photo. I've been curious about this shop for many months and I finally had a reason to visit today. I needed a gift for a family friend who we'll be visiting next weekend. I love her dearly, she's like family to us.
Well, upon entering Buk & Nola my expectations were met and thensome! I love how the entire store is geared towards the customers, everything merchandised so you could clearly see the products on hand and most importantly.. it felt welcoming & touchable. I mean, as soon as I saw the Skinny Laminx cushions, I was in heaven! Sadly, this time around I did not walk away with a skinny laminx purchase. Remember? I'm not the one in focus today. I did buy something for my friend but when I brought these items home, I wanted to keep them for myself! But no no.. It will be a big surprise for her. I will post the pics and information of these wonderful items after she gets it. But it is gorgeous, hand made and most importantly.. made in Montreal!
I also had trouble trying to choose a Roddy & Ginger cushion. I could not walk away without it for Keira's playroom.
I am loving buying things that are hand made and having that 'will be handed down through generations' quality. Buk & Nola really surprised me. Not only does it have an incredibly rich and diverse selection but there are also some one-of-a-kind furniture on sale and almost all items are selected because of its individualistic quality. Everything in the store also has a great price point as well. You might have to pounce on an item you like because I have a funny feeling there is a high turnover rate for its products! I am going back to get a few more items for my home..
If you're in Montreal or making a visit here.. then this is one shop on your must-see list! Thank you Laurence for a wonderful shopping experience!
