I absolutely love these hand-embroidered necklaces by MOSS. They are so intricate and lovely…it’s like wearing a tiny piece of art around your neck. And you can’t beat the price either. The bee necklace (above) is only $25! She also does gorgeous crocheted jewelry too, like the adorable little acorn and stylish assymetrical necklaces shown below. Be sure to check out her etsy shop. If you live around Portland, try to catch her at a craft fair – she’s got more beautiful things that aren’t yet online!
These full of character plush creatures from Noelle Doodle make the best gift for babies and kids! They’re super soft and cuddly (and many of them don’t have any choking hazards like buttons or small attached parts). Matilda has a couple and just loves them. And she freaks out every time we see the Noelle Doodle booth at craft fairs. She’s a big fan! She was pining hardcore for the alligator shown below. Click here to visit her etsy shop.
p.s. Plus, Noelle is super sweet and it’s always great to support such a nice crafter.
Ahhh, Fall. The crisp, clean air. The crunchy colored leaves blanketing the ground. Mulled cider. New outerwear. Nothing makes me more excited for Fall than getting a new jacket! I think it calls up memories of heading back to school and chilly Friday evenings spent at high school football games. And just in time to make my little heart swoon, La Merde has released a line of jackets for women – each one perfect in it’s own way. I think The Librarian in brown (shown above) is my first love, followed closely by Cadence, the lovely romantic pea coat (below). See the full collection and shop here.
Monsieur T. has just launched his new summer line of shirts! Get some while you can – quantities are very limited and they sell out quickly!

Not into the Super Bowl? Yeah, me neither. Although I do enjoy some of the commercials, it’s painful to have to sit through an entire football game on tv just to see them. Guess what I’m doing instead! Shopping! It’s time for another Bargain Hunting 101 – a gathering of my favorite local shops and designers selling their goods at discount prices. Almost makes me want to yell, “Touchdown!”…but I won’t. And did I mention there is free parking and a full bar? Check out the full vendor list here. Highlights (for me) include Mabel & Zora, Mink, Frock, Knot Ugly, Queen Bee and, of course, Monsieur T.!
Bargain Hunting 101
