On the Fifth Day of Christmas ...

Thursday, 18 December 2014
My true love gave to me, a Quills magnetic bookmark.

I've included magnetic bookmarks by Quills, a Hamilton stationary company, in my #HamOnt gift round-up in the past. I don’t want to be repetitive, but these beauties are still my favourite thing to put in a stocking, gift alongside a book, or to slide into a Christmas card. They’re beautiful, but they’re also so practical, making it nearly impossible to lose your page. (Keep in mind, this post is by someone who often uses credit cards and train tickets as a bookmark, which is NEVER a good idea).

Jordan and I went our separate ways at Hamilton’s Maker’s Market a few weeks ago, but I made sure to call him back to the Quills’ booth because pretty much everything is on my wishlist. I already have a few Quills’ Scrabble necklaces, but this year they’ve made letterpress block necklaces, and they’re stunning.

Quills is currently located in the Rock Castle (95 Arkledun Avenue). (It’s the probably haunted but beautiful building you see while driving up the escarpment.) You can visit by appointment only, but the magnetic bookmarks are available throughout the city, including at Epic Books.

  1. You must be a kind people because you share your knowledge through articles. You like to read them. They are really good for everyone. Can you upload more articles? I believe that many people like me wait for your next posts.

  2. Without knowing the backstory of Clapton's son's death inspiring such a beautiful lyric of loss, one would underestimate the depth of grief packed into the poetry. As romantic lyric-- which it is entirely possible to be interpreted-- it is quite ordinary, indeed, bordering on the sentimental, but as a grieving father's vision of a dead child it is exquisitely, and most achingly sublime. And this is also a grown man's psychological response to loss that is irreparable.
