April, what's good?
Posted on April 13, 2016
These are the large size "Fireplace" matches. Hand for scale.Another new line alert! Flume Leather Co. is based right here in Oregon (Troutdale, to be exact) and we welcome their wallets, coin purses, and keychains to the shop. Luke, founder of Flume, describes his company's place in the leather goods industry saying "Many companies are more interested in mass producing goods at the cheapest rate in order to make a profit. Flume Leather Co. however goes out of its way to get locally sourced and ethically responsible materials in order to make its hand made goods." Yeah, we dig that. Color me crazy about these bangles! Betsy & Suzy sourced these Burkina Faso bangles during their buying trip to Tucson for the betsy & iya Bazaar. Lucky for you, there are a handful (literally ^) left in the shop and they're only $9 each. Stack for maximum color therapy. Oh hello, family o' baskets. Also from the betsy & iya Bazaar, the various sizes of handwoven baskets you see here can be used to hold everything from dirty laundry to laundry quarters and everything in between. Prices range from $18-$178. Never underestimate the power of a manicure to improve your day. Think I'm over exaggerating? Try one of these bright colored polishes from Portland-based Palate Polish and you'll see. Robin Egg and Sous-Vide Carrot (above), plus several other colors are available in-store, and click here to shop online. And last, but never least, some spring studs: all betsy & iya styles seen above - Lappland studs, Piedmont studs, and Vous et Moi studs - are available in-store and online. Wishing you all a happy day and hope to see you in the shop soon - rain or shine! xo Anna
