Design*sponge was very gracious to ask Lena Corwin and I to do a joint podcast for her website, and the results are here. We really had fun, though maybe you can’t tell by the picture!
Back in the shop – we have restocked on the Fernworks necklaces and the new pieces are so great! We have even more botanical and painted pendants so come by and take a look.
What else – Kristen McCloud’s lariats are hot and we have sold most of them already but should have a new batch in today or tomorrow. Also, we’ve been hard at work on the photography and will have more Rare Picks available soon, including more jewelry.
Today’s spins: Hey Mercedes and Palace Music.
Don’t forget we are CLOSED this weekend!
Rare Device will be CLOSED this weekend – July 1 & 2 – we just need a little break and everyone seems to be heading out of town (or watching fireworks). Sorry for any inconvenience! We’ll be open on Friday until 7pm as usual.
New in the shop: gorgeous handprinted cards by Etui, all new designs, and more supersoft fun tees from Heavy Rotation.
Also – the Polli succulent earrings are back in stock! More Polli jewelry to come in another week or so.
We’ve received an extraordinary batch of cards and prints from Old School Stationers of Portland, OR. Large, bold images in three colors are pressed onto extremely textured and thick handmade paper, resulting in a very deep “bite”. The five inch blank cards are great but the eight inch versions, mounted on wood frames and ready to hang on your wall, are incredible. I promise to get these onto Rare Picks ASAP.
We are also restocked on mi-spa’s yummy lip balms and we are trying out the dry perfume roll-ons as well. They are light and clear scents in a no-mess glass tube, very refreshing for summer…we have green tea, yuzu, lychee and sake scents.
Happy weekend to all, stay cool.
A quick shout of hurrah to my friend Laura, who runs Ruby Gallery in San Francisco. Her store turned 10 years old yesterday by launching their e-commerce site! 10 years is *amazing* for any store but especially so for a shop filled with great work by small designers. Ruby was the first store to carry my jewelry and Laura has provided invaluable advice to me and many other designers as well! Here’s to Laura and the store’s namesake, a sweet little black pug who greets everyone at the door.
