New Linens

We are starting to see springy new linens in the store! There are fresh new stripes:



And a few fun patterns!


This linen piece has a subtle, organic print.


Dark indigo chambray takes advantage of linen's great visual texture.


This kelly green damask has a beautiful, subtle pattern woven in.


And of course, there are always plenty of solid colors, too, like this new soft lavender!

Treadlette Tuesday: Rebecca's Pick

Today, Rebecca is telling us all about her number one favorite tool that everyone needs: a great pair of scissors.


"I love Ginghers, I always have. I have probably 6 to 8 different pairs of scissors. Every one does a different thing!"

Rebecca recommends buying "the best pair of scissors you can afford, and as many as you need." Including a nice pinking shear!

Even the best scissors need occasional maintenance. "The nice thing about Gingher is that you can send them to the factory, where they take them apart, sharpen them the correct way, and put them back together." You can read more about this on Gingher's service page.

Faux Leather

We have a few gorgeous new faux leathers in the store: two in shimmery metallic and one in jet black.


This faux leather is perfect for jackets and skirts! You could use it alone, or just a bit for accents.


Accessories like purses, bags, and gloves would also be gorgeous!
