Felted Wool

We are excited to have a new talent, Agnes, to the shop. She is a young artist working in felted merino wool, silk and leather. Come in an see her inspiring designs. Pictured are some examples of her fingerless gloves. Great for the season. Her images are playful and her shawls are painterly.


Keep those ears toasty and look chic this winter!
Fun and fashionable hand made in Canada.

Bronze candle holder

We have this new line of bronze candle holders.
They are beautifully sculpted by hand in California.

Recycle Re-use Re-think

This year, be creative with your wrapping. Buy one of our recycled bags and use that as the wrapping! We have all sorts of colorful patterns for $8.95 each. Then they can re-use the bags at the grocery store, for lugging kids' stuff, or for traveling - they fold up and fit in your wallet.

What to wear...

You'll look fabulous in one of our head bands for all of those holiday parties!

Cool Wire Wreath

You can hang it, or put it on the table...
Come check out all of the fun decorations we have for the holiday!
