Each month, staff from all areas of the AGA will share their “must haves” from Shop AGA with you.
Cookie & the Dude Cloth Barrettes
Cooke and the Dude
Please, tame my wayward fore-lock.
Bangs, meet Bobby Pin.
One Swell Gal Silk Screened Scarf
One Swell Gal, wrapped ‘round
my neck- less morbid than it
seems. New winter scarf!
Ghandi Finger Puppet/Magnet
Ghandi, tiny puppet;
With your cheery cotton face,
Bring peace to my hands.
- Christina, Shop AGA
Topsy Turvy Stacking Blocks
These boxes are topsy and turvy
All colors but not at all curvy
I used each of the blocks
As a vitamin box
and successfully avoided the scurvy.
Mint Vin-Eau Carafe and Cups Set
This porcelain carafe is ideal
For a picnic or any old meal
Two bright scarlet cups
Help you want to drink up
and ‘dishwasher safe’ holds appeal!
- Sarah, Shop AGA
MoMA Modern Playhouse
I love interior design, but unfortunately my budget doesn’t allow for very much experimentation. This kit allows me to have my mid-century modern fun while keeping money in my wallet.
Allison Cole Notebooks
Stuck for inspiration? These notebooks are so pretty and colourful that filling them with ideas is a cinch.
- Alison, Marketing
Aluminum Brillo Savings Box
Have you ever wanted to own cool spy-like technology, but didn’t want to deal with the social repercussions of night vision goggles? Look no further! The aluminum Brillo Savings Box magically locks your spare change in a Warhol-inspired container without a key or combination. No one will be able to break in! What happens when you want to access your money? Ask the Shop AGA staff to give you a demonstration.
While I know it puts me in danger for admitting this, I am originally from Calgary and frequently travel back to see family. Every time I drive down, I am not allowed to visit my mother unless I have the Happeez Clippers with me. These extremely practical clips come in a variety of nifty designs and, because they are not magnetic, can be placed anywhere!
