Note to self

Go back to Carbonstok and buy all my Christmas presents.

This cool new store can be found at 1235 Barrington Street in Halifax

Mr. Happy and I wandered in there today on our way home from the market and the grocery store. Awesome place.

Very, very cool stuff.

Here's their goal (taken from the Halifax Locals post about their opening):

"Many of our products come from forward thinking designers and manufacturers that consider our collective impact on the environnment. Other products have such timeless relevance that ensures they will be around for a very long time and never go out of style. Finally, some of our products are simply there to entertain you. Because life doesn't always have to be serious. Our goal is to continually bring you new and interesting products for your home, for your body, and for your friends."

I meant to take a photo of the outside of the store, but my camera was buried in my bag under produce and such from the market.

Next time. Because there will be a next time.

  1. I saw the mention of Carbonstok in The Coast this week. The writer made it sound like it was the 1st store of this kind around here. My reaction to the article, not having been to Carbonstok as yet, was what about P'lovers?

    Carbonstok is down near Cargo & James Tea?
    I miss living in the Southend...

  3. I am glad you like the store and your time there was a pleasant one. I work there and have just started a facebook group to keep people informed about new stock. Look forward to seeing you in store again soon.
