About Ellen

“After teaching in Japan for the past three years, I felt I needed a change of pace. My husband and I decided that we wanted to be around our family in the Maritimes. With Saint John’s beautiful architecture, eclectic food scene, and strong sense of community, we knew that this was where we wanted to hang our hats. I am thrilled to be a part of the Tuck team and I look forward to serving the community through my love of art and design!”

1 | Red Ticking Apron, $29 

I don’t know what it is about this apron, but the second I put it on, I feel like I’m ready to cook up a storm! Great for holiday baking or as a gift for an avid chef, this apron appeals to all.

These classic aprons are 100% cotton and feature a handy front pouch for quick access to frequently used tools such as scissors, a timer, a pen, a thermometer, or your phone. When dirty, simply throw them in the wash!

A beautiful set of candlesticks is the perfect final touch to any dinner party. And during the holidays, there sure are a lot of those! Pair them with EQ3 Array Dinner Candles and some garland and you’re golden!

The heights are 16″, 12″, and 9″ (not including your choice of candlesticks). The base of each is 5″ diameter at the widest point.

3 | Fluted Vase Large, $59

My kind of vase is one that looks good with or without flowers! The Fluted vase is simple, elegant, and reminds me of origami. I suggest gifting it with flowers already in it!

4 | Christiana Myers New Brunswick Coat of Arms. Large, $110/ Small, $90

As someone who has deep roots to New Brunswick, I want to be reminded of it! This simple silkscreen of the New Brunswick Coat of Arms by Christiana Myers is a great choice for any fellow New Brunswicker, regardless of if they live in the province or not! Put it in one of our EQ3 Frames and it’s all set to go.

5 | Brothers Dressler Hang Ups, $225

Living Uptown sure has its perks but one of the work arounds is the small apartments! That’s why I love the Brothers Dressler Hang Ups since they act as hooks and as art! With each one being made of found wood, scrap material, salvaged hardware and up-cycled automotive parts, they sure are a great conversation piece.
