We Made It!

December 19, 2015 1 min read

What a fantastic close to the season. Of course, I know that Christmas is still nearly a week away, but in online retail, by this point it is the equivalent of an empty sidewalk.

{If you are late to the game, don’t worry! Today is the last day for standard shipping across the continental US and Western Canada. We also have emailed gift certificates available throughout next week!}

I never quite remember what I share online vs. what I am feeling personally or sharing with friends. I also never know what the perception is, or how any messages are being received. Running a small, family business is challenging, flexible, exciting, and emotionally taxing. It is a great gift, and I never would have dreamed of it! But, I’m also ready for a true break.

I am excited to be taking the holidays “off”; a break from facebook advertising, instagram posting, blogging, and strategizing. A mental break, to devote attention to my family, my personal sanity, and the peace of the season.

Have a very, very Merry Christmas! Thank you all so very much for joining us in this journey to shop good, make meaningful purchases, and connect with other people in the world.

I wish you peace & joy this season, and I will see you in the new year!

Conversely, one of my great delights is enjoying clothes that are made well, fit nicely, and hold up because of good workmanship and materials.

But, here's the rub... good quality clothes, made from solid materials, constructed to last: they cost money!

Memorable Memoirs

December 17, 2021 6 min read 2 Comments


I love to read, and I love to read memoirs. There are loads of lists out there of great memoirs, and, well… this is another one.

Some titles will be familiar & common, though I’ve left out some faves that I’ve already mentioned (many times) before — Born A Crime, The Glass Castle, Bossypants — in favor of other titles [though, truth to tell, I have also mentioned some of these before.]

I hope that you can find something to read over the holidays! Happy Reading!

How to Give a Great Gift

December 04, 2021 8 min read

I've said before that while I advocate for shopping thoughtfully & being slow... I love gifts! Actual, tangible, pull-the-wrapping-off gifts.

We want to make the gifts that we give worth it. Worth the money, the materials, the effort... So, how to choose a thoughtful gift that will be meaningful to the recipient?
