Mollie and Katie

We have two new designers, Mollie Dash and Katie Muth. Mollie lives in Brooklyn and we have her bracelets made from vintage chain she finds at thrift stores. They are simple but bold compositions. I'll work on getting a photo uploaded soon. I am really picky about bracelets but these resonate - I think they remind me of being little and fishing through the "junk drawer" at home...I would take old metal expandable watchbands and tie the ends together and make bracelets.

Katie is an artist and printer, she lives in Toronto and she makes linocuts for her artwork. We have five designs which reflect different seasons in a calendar year. Her Valentines-esque card is particularly wonderful. I will have a picture for you soon.

That is all - did you know we are having a sale at the shop? Come by as we have many things marked down, including bags and clothing.

I will be in Sacramento for a few days, visiting the family and, like a good foodie, making the pilgrimage to Corti Brothers to stock up on items that basically aren't sold anywhere else in the country. Anyway, the shop is open as always Wednesday through Saturday, 12-7 and Sunday 12-6. Have a great holiday weekend!

P.S. The yellow and the red bags that I blogged earlier this week are already sold out, but I can take preorders for these via email.

New This Week

Just a few pictures for you.

Today we are restocked on Lumen and Kbox as well. And we found a couple more glass teapots while doing inventory, so those are back up in the webshop.

Welcome Back

The shop is open again, and I am drowning in boxes from the past 10 days! It's chilly out there but it is worth a visit. Or, check out the site - we promise to update it tonight, there are many things back in stock:

Bee House teapots
Poketo wallets
Inhabit Structures watch component pendants and rings
Amy Tavern jewelry
Droplet sake/wine glasses
Hlaska wallets
Postcard books from Japan (finally!)
Stop Talking and Poker cards

Plus brand-new Li Xi (at home we call that "lai see") envelopes from Design Night to celebrate Chinese New Years, or any happy occasion. And did we mention that the spring Matt & Nat bags are here? And we have a few of the brass button satchels back in stock (design*sponge has one and it happened to be in a photo; more people asked about that bag than her spanky new sofa!) much going on here.
