shop updates

we are all working from home today, watching the predicted five inches of snow and sleet pile up outside our windows.  yesterday we priced and packed five big boxes of beautiful handmade porcelain and paper items for the bucktown holiday art show this weekend. there will be new porcelain holiday cups, ornaments, gift tags, paper goods and versatile porcelain tray sets.  if you are in chicago, please stop by to say hello!  

between production and packing we have been updating the etsy shop with some beautiful one of a kind pieces fresh from amy's studio.  you will find an abundance of unique handmade holiday gift ideas for under $20.  seriously, this is good stuff :)  in these times, it is so good to make your shopping dollars stretch while giving lovely handmade gifts to those you love.

happy shopping!
