A Place to Stash your Cash

We just got in more of those adorable little coin purses from Blue Q! They're big enough to hold your ID and credit cards, too--perfect for a small bag or no bag day or night. Waterproof recycled plastic is perfect for the beach or pool, too! They'd also be a cute Easter gift--you'd probably want to put a little money in it, though. These are just the new ones, we've got plenty more to choose from, so come in and pick one up!

Some Green Things

With Saint Patrick's Day nearly here, I stocked the window with lots of green things. Today I realized that Easter will be here in less than three weeks, so I took out the green stuff and am working on an Easter/Spring theme. Here are some of the green-hued things I traded for bunnies, chickens, baskets and eggs.

This purse is made from recycled candy wrappers. It's also available in a multi-colored version where the wrapperiness is more obvious.

Locally handknit mittens and child's hat. Sold separately, and created by two different artists with the same eye for cuteness.

This is a recycled glass vase so it's green in more ways than one!

This goofy little turtle is crocheted over post-consumer bottle caps. I am the consumer. The lady who crochets them lives here in town and walks them over--her carbon footprint is really small, as are her feet.

Another fabulous locally-made thing: this green koi tshirt for kids from Mosh Baby. It's even organic cotton!

More green stuff from Galison Green. . .

And some green frogs from Melissa and Doug--the pull toy frog bounces when you pull him and the Funny Frog Games come with lily pads, frogs, and directions for 10 different games to play with them.
