things i loved so much & had to keep for myself

Friday, January 18, 2013
for the most part, when it comes to buying for the shop i tend to pick what i like. about 75% of the time, i'd want to buy it if i saw it for sale somewhere else. all in all, i think this strategy is part of what gives such consistency to the site - that "curated" look. believe it or not (sometimes it surprises even me), somehow i manage to not keep half my inventory for myself. the things above though, i loved them so much i just had to have them. after all, that's the best perk of owning a webshop, right?

1. wool dot throw in navy — this is seriously the softest, coziest throw ever... it sits on the back of my blue couch. i love that the navy color isn't super girly - it's a nice contrast to most of the other stuff i decorate with. (p.s., it's in dwell magazine this month!)

2. sheep print wool scarf — i've worn this almost every day this winter. it goes with everything, it's really warm, and best of all it's a little funny. what's not to love about little sheep on a scarf? i always get compliments when i wear it, too.

3. yellow dipped mug — i collaborated with rachel howe of small spells on this one. i love unglazed pieces, so the bottom being matte and raw with a glossy, sunny top is my dream. this mug is in constant rotation for my morning coffee.

4. spear vase
— i keep this on a reclaimed wooden shelf in my living room. it's nice for keeping florals that don't need water - i have cotton branches in mine at the moment.

5. baggu moon shopper — this one's a no brainer. it's inexpensive, reusable, super compact, and perfect for keeping in your handbag and using for groceries, errands, whatever.

6. gold vermeil twig ring — feminine, effortless, and goes with everything. the perfect piece of jewelry in my book.
7. baggu leather loop keychain — i switched out my kidrobot breakfast keychains for this little leather number the second they came in.

8. mountains ring — square rings might be a little scary to buy online, but they're surprisingly flattering on. i wear a size 6.5/7, and the size medium fits me perfectly (don't be intimidated by the funky german sizing).

These are all so great!! That's what we do with our vintage shop & I try to do with my premade blog designs. I think it's speaks to the quality of the shop & the investment of the shop owner when it's curated like that. It says 'This is a place filled with quality things & not just junk. This is a place I take seriously.' I feel like so many small shop owners lose track of who they are because they start competing with the bigger market. Yes, you want things to sell....that's the goal.. but it's your shop & people will come to you because you are different.

Anyway, love the shop & need to get my hands on some of your awesomely curated things!
