I look forward to seeing what they have in the future as the companies grow! They also have a lot of cool, indie products by domestic designers.
Beautiful serving bowls from Mexico. The salsa bowls at the top were also featured in Domino.
Sweet little tea light holders
African baskets are always stunning
Pretty little tea towels.
Art for baby
I *LOVE* this bracelet. My sisters' pet name for me has always been Heart, so it's fitting. :)
A gorgeous cuff bracelet.
They also carry a lot of really pretty stationary
I always use handmade soaps - they are much nicer for your skin and last a really long time. Nest has a huge selection.
