Back to College Essentials

College will be here soon! It can be hard to leave Up North friends and family, memories and the lake. But we’ve rounded up 10 College Essentials that we think will help remind you of your Up North experiences all semester long:

  1. Flannel: These flannels are fashionable all year-round and are perfect to throw on with a pair of jeans when you don’t know what else to wear.

  2. Back Pack: We have a variety of sling backs and back packs that can fit everything that you need for class. Just decide which style suits you best and you’re all set.

  3. Up North Coffee: Take Michigan coffee with you, regardless of where you are headed off to for college.

  4. CP Throw: This cozy Canvas and Paddle throw is so soft and will keep you warm at the fire, in your dorm room or when you’re on a road trip!

  5. Roo Kee Roo: Take a piece of Up North memories with you to decorate your bare walls.

  6. HOMES Sweatshirt: Never forget where you came from and where the fresh coast is the best coast in this HOMES Sweatshirt.

  7. Stormy Kromer Cap: Winter at college is cold when you have to walk to class. Bundle up with your favorite Stormy Kromer cap!

  8. Michigan Mittens: If you have friends who aren’t from Michigan, use your Michigan mittens to tell them exactly where you’re from.

  9. Soup Mix: Cooking in a dorm can be hard, but these pre-made soup mixes make it so easy. You’ll feel like you’re back home, eating Mom’s cooking!

  10. Noteworthy Notebook: Jot down all your favorite memories in this cute and outdoorsy journal!

No matter where you find yourself going to college this year, Up North will always be here for more memories when you return. Until then, grab a few of these items and count down the days until you’re back in the best place, Up North!

Canvas and Paddle Instagram Takeover: Stormy Kromer

Did you follow Canvas and Paddle’s Instagram Takeover from Stormy Kromer, @stormykromerofficial? If you missed it, head on over to @canvasandpaddle on Instagram to see what’s been posted lately. 

Stormy Kromer is iconic for their winter caps, but they also make so much more! Stormy Kromer was started in 1903, when George (aka Stormy!) kept on losing his baseball caps in the wind. His wife, Ida, created a design that would help keep his hat firmly in place, officially creating Stormy Kromer!

Stormy Kromer now has a men’s and women’s line, a doggie line and so many fun accessories! Stormy Kromer is known for being tough, warm and good looking! If you’re brave enough to withstand Michigan’s weather, don’t do it without first stopping into Canvas and Paddle and shopping our Stormy Kromer line! 

Thanks again to the folks at Stormy Kromer for the awesome takeover!
