Fabulous Wedding Gift Ideas

With wedding season ramping up, many of us are looking for lovely wedding gifts. So we wanted to share with you two classically modern merchandise lines we carry that make perfect wedding gifts.

The first line is Beatriz Ball. These beautiful mixed-metal serving pieces are hand-made in Mexico. Not only are they striking, but they never need to be polished, and they can go from freezer to oven to table! These items will add an air of sophistication to any table, without the high maintenance required by some other collections. We carry the items picture below. Stop in the shop or email us for more details!

The second line we recommend is Juliska (and, remember, it's on sale). Juliska's glassware is mouth-blown by artisans outside of Prague. Also handmade, no two pieces are alike. Though the glassware is very thin, it's surprisingly durable -- which means it's dishwasher safe. Inspired by historical European patterns, the artisans at Juliska give those classic designs modern flare and functionality. Below are many of the pieces we carry in the shop (note: some of our glassware is in green; not all is clear).Keep these two product lines in mind next time you need to purchase a wedding gift. They're fabulously beautiful (and reasonably priced) alternatives to the classic nuptial present.

Stay cool!

The end of an era

OK, well not really an era, but still. We've carried Juliska glassware for almost two years now. In large part because Allegra fell in love with it years ago. It's beautiful and looks so delicate (but is actually sturdy enough to go in your dishwasher).

Sadly, though, we've decided to close out our in-stock glassware. Not because we don't love it anymore. Not because we don't sell it. But because we have a slight storage problem. These are all of our Juliska boxes that we keep on hand for the glassware.
Faced with the decision of either keeping all these boxes or bringing in new merchandise for ya'll, we decided to say goodbye to the glassware. To help it move a little more quickly, we're offering it at 20% off! And remember that we ship anywhere in the U.S. (and you needn't worry about breakage since we have all these boxes)!
Please note that we will continue to carry the ceramics, and can also order any item in the Juliska catalog.
Happy weekend!

Out with the old, in with the new

I'm sure you recognize these pieces from our lovely little shop. Well, guess what! As beautiful as these pieces are, we've decided to put them each on sale for 20% off! Yes, that's right. These gorgeous statement pieces are being sold at a pretty nice discount because we have some new furniture pieces we'd like to introduce (including some vintage pieces).

Call, email, or stop in for specific pricing information!

Happy shopping!
