Canoe Pop-Up Tonight + This Humble Abode
Tonight is THE night, friends! Our Canoe Pop-Up shop is happening later today from 5:30-10pm at Public School. We woke up to some lovely snow this morning here in Austin, which canceled my morning class (woo-hoo!) and gives us a bit more time to spit and polish everything. If you're looking for some cold weather clothes, Canoe has you covered. We have flannels galore, puffer vests, heavy wool jackets, sturdy boots, and lots of warm layers for you.

In addition to warm layers, we also have beautiful hand-sewn ties from This Humble Abode to spruce up that stylish outfit. Jenny hand-sews her ties on the bias, and will also have an array of hand-sewn handkerchiefs, available with or without some witty embroidery.


I am a HUGE handkerchief fan and have been collecting them since my high school days. They remind me of my father and also my grandfather, whose hankie I am using right now. They are durable, soft on your nose, and a personal item that carries both personal meaning and practical value, especially during cold days like we're seeing now. My grandfather is a big influence on the ideas behind Canoe, as he valued quality goods and was a superb craftsman who paid attention to the details.

The sun is out shining now, and it feels like a good day ahead. I can't wait to share what we've been working on with everyone, meet new/old friends, and have some laughs. Tonight we'll have some good whiskey to warm you up, salami to keep you going, and some great products to share. Be sure to come up and say hello-- I'll be the girl in the flannel with a big grin, probably hammering at a leather tag and sipping a hot toddie. See you there!
