Rocks and Salt - I absolutely NEED a hip pouch from this designer!! I also really enjoy waxed canvas since it lasts forever.


Sprout Head - I am a sucker for an oracle deck. I love the clean design aesthetic of this artist.


Kakinbow Fashion This is a new designer that I am not familiar with, but I am drawn to and am completely excited by the starkness of her designs and patterns. I can imagine owning a few pieces to help spice up my wardrobe.


Good Company Wares - Beautiful vibrant designs for home. Love the aesthetic.


Kellie Cox: Artist Kellie's floral paintings are beautiful and truly capture the personality and essence of the plants and flowers that inspire them. Her expertise, knowledge and love for gardening comes through in her artwork. I also love that she works in all sizes and has both small and super large prints.
