If hockey is our national sport, then cabining is our national leisure.
And if ever there were an official supplier of cool cabin décor, The Souvenir Shop could stake claim. The site, which features all kinds of clever Canadiana from young red-and-white-blooded designers, is brimming with mod little masterpieces and tongue-in-cheek collectibles to spruce up your abode outside city limits.
Brighten up your bunk: vintage scarf bedspread ($525).
Animalize the mantle: bad beaver vase ($100).
A surreal lifesaver: fur lifejacket ($500).
A real lifesaver: tent peg bottle opener ($30).
Most pieces are limited run or one-of-kind, so chop chop! Canoes, you lose!
