The place to buy unique gifts

That's right, we don't just decorate your homes, but we can also decorate YOU!  Not everything is old or reused, these dresses are newly made with vintage fabrics.  So if you need that special gift,  we can help.  Here are just a few idea's...

Wabi Sabi Saturday

Just incase you didn't make it in for the Furoshiki class with Hiromi last Saturday, you can see her work here .  We hope to have her back around Christmas to do another Furoshiki demonstration, but hopefully sooner for more of her artistic talent!  Thank you so much Hiromi!

Feeling Kinda Green

After a week of hiking and gem hunting in the mountains of North Carolina I'm ready to get back to work.  Nature is my biggest inspiration.   The kids were so exciting about finding rubies and garnets in the streams, all I wanted to do is load my car up with moss covered rocks!   Is this not the most lovely shade of green?

A Thank You Note

Every year the senior business students at Notre Dame do an internship with a new local business.  They come in interview, analyze, and ask what  they can help you achieve.  We were one of the lucky chosen ones, and this was our team

Kyle, Maria, Rameez

They present all their findings, and ideas to their professors and peers
and invite the business owners to sit in as well.

Dillon,  The IT /grapic designer
I was so proud of these young professionals, for how they handled all the tasks at hand.  They have inspired us in so many ways.  Thank you all!  Your new life is waiting right around the corner....and you will all do well with it.  Best of luck to you!
