Ten Days


Ten days to go and then we can breathe a sigh of relief and eat some pie and pudding! It has been very interesting to observe shopper behavior. Some people are scrupulously good about buying for others, some seem mad that they can't shop for themselves...some are buying for themselves anyway :)

We were pleased to see Karin Eriksson's ceramics as we were flipping through the magazine Living Etc. We anxiously await her wonderful, delicate pieces to arrive. Congrats Karin!

New today - more Fire First bags, the first batch flew out of here, and we have new shapes and sizes to offer. These bags are heavy woven nylon, unisex, with more pockets, straps and buckles than you'll know what to do with.

Also I got some canvas zippered pouches from Twelve, it seems like a lot of people just need little organizational pouches and these are the ticket. I use mine all the time so I don't lose things in the depths of my bigger bag.

I have just a little bit of jewelry from Fernworks and Kriya Davis. Fernworks embeds grass, leaves, seeds, vertabrae (!) in resin, or floats stark imagery of winter trees and crows on top of resin. The pendants are strung on very fine jewelry wire so they appear to float on your skin. They are very poetic and unique. Kriya has ultraminimalist brushed silver jewelry - discs and crescents that are pierced to create very timeless patterns.

Don't forget - holiday sale and trunk show this Saturday! We're going to warm up some cider for you to sip as you browse. Should be fun!! Also, holiday hours start Saturday - we'll be open 12-8 (at least) every night through the 24th. We are debating closing from the 28th through the New Year and back on our normal Weds-Sun schedule starting Jan 4. This gives us time to relax with family and also do inventory at the store...in preparation for the post-holiday sale! Stay tuned.
