Time to get festive and shake things up! If you want to do it in style, visit Atkinson’s, which has some of the finest home decor, flatware, glassware and bar essentials.
John and Diane Atkinson have always loved travel, family, and quality craftsmanship. In 1982, when John worked in real estate and Diane was a nurse, they began to discuss ways to combine their passions with a new career. In 1984, they opened their first store, and after a decade of growth, built their current location at the corner of Granville and West 6th Avenue – just across the Granville Street Bridge.
Their success is driven by a passion for sharing beauty, finding the unique, and presenting the exceptional – passions they have passed on to their children. Eldest son J.J. began the online division, which has acquired a clientele requiring everything from dinnerware for celebrity private jets, to a complete dining table for twelve for the private dining room in the presidential suite of the famous Terelj Hotel in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
Daughter Becky has a passion for detail that translates to very happy bridal registry clients while second son Danny explores the blending of his love of food and drink with the latest contemporary tableware and barware collections.
An Atkinson’s Bartender Kit ($295 value), including all the essential tools for crafting delicious cocktails at home. From a crisp shaken cocktail to a beautifully stirred Manhattan.
