Five Shopping Days/Five Great Shopping Ideas

How’s that shopping coming?  If you are anything like me, there’s plenty left to do and not alot of time left to do it in.  Every season we try to guess what the “must-have”  items will  be and do our best to keep them available.  Here our some of our favorites.  As of today (Monday), both our stores have plenty in stock.  Worth checking out!

eco-friendly handbags:  surplus marine vinyl, aircraft cables, and plumbers’ tubing transformed into show-stopping handbags?  who knew these would be such a big hit?  We’ve had trouble keeping these bags in stock all season but we just received a new shipment in updated colors and styles.  Hurry in; these will go fast!   $50 – $90 (bag shown in $67)

wire-wrapped jewelry:  sterling silver wire encases freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones in these unusual artisan pieces by local artist laura lawrance.  bright colors or subdued tones, long or short lengths, simple or intricate designs, these beautiful pieces are hard to resist.  $35 to $75.

mismatched socks:  multipatterned and mismatched, these colorful socks are crafted in Vermont from recycled cotton yarns.  a unique gift that is certain to bring a smile to wearers of all ages.  ($19 )

sculptable jewelry: combining jewelry and sculpture, this unique flexible metal loop allows you to bend, twist, and style it into any shape.  a necklace, a bracelet, a headband….you name it. ($19)

felted soap: chamomile and lavender olive oil soap is artfully wrapped with soft merino wool and handfelted.  the gently exfoliating wool wrapping allows the soap to last longer.  unique gift idea perfect for the shower, a guest bathroom, or as a daily facial cleanser.  ($14)
