Spring is here in Seattle, and we've just received a handful of shipments. It's always nice to freshen up the store with new product, and somehow when the sun is coming through the window everything looks and feels all shiny new. The kids at Savannah College of Art and Design came up with these fantastic melamine plates, perfect for eating outside this summer ("I believe that is called al fresco"). This is a great program where students get real world experience by not just designing in a classroom, but by taking a product all the way to market. The veggies on these salad plates remind us that the farmer's markets will be ramping up soon. We also received a new order from San Francisco hipsters FluffyCo, who make the awesome bottle openers and key hooks that we love. There are new designs of both in our brick and mortar, and we will be expanding the choices in our web store soon. And then there are the new spring bags from Highway. These have consistently been our most popular handbags, probably because they are at once sweetly stylish and super practical. They have lots of pockets and zippers and are beautifully designed in nylon and leather, some with designer Jem Filippi's super-cute embroidery.
