We love Granville Island during the holiday season. Festive lights and warm beverages, and for us, a full stock of freshly made broom to see us through December! People are asking us what brooms they should buy as gifts and here are some of our top choices:
1. Turkey Wing Style Whisk – Always a favorite and always useful. In addition to cleaning up the crumbs of Christmas pudding, it can be used year round as a fantastic dustpan broom. We personally use this whisk everywhere from the kitchen to the workshop.
2. Manzanita Fireplace– If there’s no place to hang a broom, these ones can stand on their own (just not too close to the fire!) The round trimmed style is best for flicking dust and ash out of rough brick or stone. These standers have been popular mail order items this season.
3. Manzanita Whisk– we’ve been making these for a year now and we still can’t get over how cute they are. Small enough to be packed in luggage, but full of character. These brooms are great for use as a dustpan whisk or a smaller fireplace broom.
4. Natural Branch Floor Broom – This is the ultimate wish list broom. Fully practical and yet beautiful to look at. They really do make sweeping more fun. We have sanded and prepared an amazing selection of new handles just in time for the holidays.
