Late August Closure

floor composite

Our old floor squeaks and groans, and gets compliments despite its patches and splits. It is more than 100 year old fir, and can be sanded down to a red raw wood. It is dry, and drinks up the white stain. Two coats go from bright white to dusty pink. It has taken many hours to sand and re-treat the floor, more hours than budgeted for, so we are closed for one extra day.

Thanks for understanding!

Fog Linen – new arrivals

Fog Linen composite

We have now received the second instalment of the Spring/Summer collection from Fog Linen. Fog Linen is a Japanese brand, made in Lithuania from linen grown and woven in Lithuania. Fog linen is a staple in Urbanity! We carry Fog Linen clothing, and occasionally some products from their other collections. The clothing comes in one size — sometimes small, sometimes larger. We usually have only one of each colour and style and we re-order. We receive shipments on a regular basis.
