vin·tage: of old, recognized, and enduring interest, importance, or quality (Merriam-Webster)
Vintage items evoke feelings of nostalgia…they are reminiscent of the past. However, they appeal to people of all ages. They don’t just have a look about them, they have a feel about them. This is precisely what we see in our new line of vintage greeting cards.
Buy wholesale in a 12 pack or 24 pack. For individual retail sale.
Nothing says luxury quite like silk. Not only does it impart visual beauty, it is tactile. Beautiful, luscious, extraordinary. Our new line of handmade, hand-dyed silk infinity and classic straight scarves are a treasure to behold. Julia’s hand-dyed silk textiles are inspired by a love of nature and a focus on environmental awareness. Each piece is dyed or eco-printed using recycled materials or dyes found in nature. These include: eucalyptus, berries, onion skins, metal, and fall leaves. Julia says “my art and vision spring from the forest, but began in darkroom photography. My textiles are often like photographs. I see them as a snapshot of a leaf, tree, or season recorded in silk.” There is a subtle poetry to her pieces that makes them timeless.

You love pictures, right? Well, we have a bunch. Below are the wonderfully handmade products that have been added to our online wholesale ordering portal this week. We are consistently amazed at the quality work we discover when artisans contact us. The extreme talent, dedication, and passion knows no bounds. From a beautifully packaged, complete soap line; to a thoughtfully crafted line of anti-tarnish jewelry pouches (perfect for travel!); to a colorful assortment of candles created with the inspiration of nature. When you buy from a maker, a designer, and in all likelihood an individual working his tail off to not only devise and create a beautiful product, but maintain a small business, you are doing something GOOD. You are helping that entrepreneur not only feed his business, but feed his family. There has been news lately about the # of billionaires being created in China. Well, no offense to China (my child takes Mandarin lessons after all); however, there is no need to contribute to the economic success overseas. Bring it home and contribute to the well-being of local makers, local families, and hard-working, talented people. That’s enough to make you go to bed at night feeling you did the right thing (and got an amazing product to sell in your shop at the same time!). We’ll shine a light on all the handmade products we offer for wholesale. You can shine your light on the talented makers we bring to you…after all, light is love and one can never have too much, right?
