December 2017 Newsletter

Hello Friends! 

So thankful this season to be included in many community and holiday events.  It's with gratitude that we debut new collectible artist collaborations, and continue working to support education and the arts.  Very excited to join Fig Earth's Winter Solstice Market (info below) for the first time.  In looking for ways to give back and improve I've found it's the little actions taken on a daily basis that can have the biggest impact.  Please come by one of our December events listed here, or see the online store for what's new.


Ronni Kappos Studio Event:

The highlight of our holiday season is here!  Come enjoy special discounts,  sales for early shoppers, and holiday gift items.  Ronni's beautiful space fills with the rich scent of mulled cider, we enjoy rosè, and delicious snacks.  Come to shop, stay and enjoy friendly company in an intimate setting.

Beer and Hotsauce Justice Laub Art

Beer & Hot Sauce Hand Linen

Give a gift that will bring a smile, and can be used in the kitchen or bathroom. Artist Justice Laub's drawings have a whimsical and playful feel that people love. We're in the second year of this seasonal gift series featuring a collectable illustrated print. Once this limited edition sells out, it's gone for good.

Ermie Collaboration, Harmony Tee

Ermie X Jill Aiko Yee

I've long admired the work of designer and artist Jennifer Parry Dodge/ Ermie.  We just launched a Fabric Dye Collaboration with two top styles online and in studio.  The Harmony Tee pictured is made of silk and cotton, Jennifer dyed yardage with natural cochineal and eucalyptus dyes, and procion dyes.  Stay tuned for an Inspired Profile Q&A delving into her creative process.
