  2. Happy Labour Day and NEW items!

    August 31, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    Hope everyone’s having a lovely and relaxing long Labour Day Weekend!

    We’ve just spent a wonderful few hours down by the lake as a family and it was great.  Follow that up with some ice-cream and I’m a happy guy.  You should see Violet every time she takes a bit of ice cream – she clutches herself and says, “Brrrrr!”  It’s just about the cutest thing ever.

    After this long weekend is up and we’re all back in the swing of things, be sure to carve out some time to head to Downtown Whitby where we’ve got lots of beautiful and unique goodies for you at Pineapple Street and Sweet Violet.

    Like these for example…

    thanks to Josie for the lovely photos!

  5. BIG NEWS! Pineapple Street To Carry New Furniture Paint Soon!

    August 19, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    After being asked, urged and begged to carry a line of oh-so-trendy furniture paint, I am happy to say Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  

    Our new shop, Pineapple Street in Downtown Whitby will be carrying a special new paint line called Fusion Mineral Based Furniture Paint!



    This paint is a dream come true because…

    1.  You can get straight to painting – no sanding or priming required!

    2.  The paint is thicker than normal paint and goes on like a dream with a foam roller – no brush marks!

    3.  It dries to a durable matte finish and no top coat or wax is required!  There are lots of finishing options available but they are an added bonus, not a must.

    4.  There is a whole range of gorgeous colours to choose from!  There’s soft and romantic to cheerful and punchy to dark and moody!  These are classic and designer-approved colours that will make your furniture sing!

    Check out some of the colours and inspiration here!  Introducing Fusion Mineral Based Furniture Paint!

  6. Justin Trudeau Visits Sweet Violet!

    August 14, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    Tuesday was an exciting day at Sweet Violet – we had a surprise visit from Justin Trudeau!

    I was just as shocked as you are!  

    He stopped by to congratulate on the three fledgling stores and to have a peek around!  Unfortunately I was in Toronto at a trade show but Kathy from Sweet Violet was happy to give the tour and take a few snaps!

    And here he is!  (Good choice of top colour Kathy!)

  7. Soak Up Summer…

    August 14, 2014 by michaelpenneystyle

    I’m really starting to hear back to school ads on the radio and I just spent the last 3 days in Toronto shopping from wholesalers for Christmas items for the shop!  All this makes me want to hold on to these last drops of summer.  In a few months time we’ll be wishing for the glorious sun and balmy breeze.

    Whether you’re at a cottage or just go for a walk in the park, be sure to soak up summer now!
