Don’t leave home without your hand-knitted hat…


We’ve been experiencing the “arctic blast” in Brooklyn, with very cold temperatures. Luckily, we’re stocked with this fabulous Zion Lion knitting kit from Wool and the Gang! This adorable hat is easy to knit and the kit includes everything you need: yarn, knitting needles, sewing needles and instructions. You’ll sit down and have this hat finished in no time. This kit is perfect for those new to knitting and a fun project for the experienced! $55

Tick, Tock, our wall clock is in Every Day with Rachael Ray…


Hooray!! Our adorable Fishbowl Pendulum Wall Clock by Modern Moose is featured in Every Day with Rachael Ray’s Holiday Gift Guide, and we couldn’t be more excited! Pick up your own copy and find us on page 106. Handmade in Massachusetts, this clock will add a pop of color to any room and be loved by kids and adults alike. We have to agree – this is an AWESOME gift! $45

Are you Thanksgiving ready?


Thanksgiving is just nine days away!! We’ve started making our grocery lists and thinking of what would make the BEST hostess gift. We love this “Giving Thanks” guest book. As holiday guests arrive, have each one sign their name and write what they are most thankful for this season. It won’t take long for this book to be filled with memories. The greatest gifts are those you will keep forever.

It’s cocktail time…


Who doesn’t enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine or beer after work on Friday night?! Keep your home bar stocked with the essentials and our amazing 4 – in – 1 bar tool. A small and useful tool, it has a cork screw, beer opener, jigger and ice breaker. It makes a great gift and is the perfect size to stick in your suitcase and take on trips. After all, you should always be “cocktail” prepared. $30

Stitch your Own Gemstone Calendar…


It’s almost time to start thinking about your calendar for 2015! (Scary, we know!) Calendars make great holiday gifts and we have an amazing selection. One of our favorites is this DIY Gemstone Geometry calendar by Heather Lins. Each month has a different gemstone printed on paper that shimmers with gold. Use the embroidery thread and follow the dots around each stone. The result is a fun project and beautiful calendar rolled into one! $25

Get your knitting needles ready…


The cold weather has arrived and that means one thing – it’s time to knit! Whether you are a pro or novice, nothing is as satisfactory as finishing a knitting project that you can show off. Now, before you begin, it’s always good to have a classic knitting book to turn to, in case you get stuck with a tricky pattern. May we suggest, “The Manly Art of Knitting.” Originally published in 1972, this book is filled with amazing black and white photos and “how-to” instructions. It’s the perfect addition to your knitting library. $13.95

It smells like Maple Syrup…


Fall is here! And so are our Fall Candles! We love our Pure Maple Syrup candle. It smells delicious and comes packaged in this adorable can with cozy, snowy decor. We’re so excited to have this candle featured in Food Network’s Online Thanksgiving Day gift guide, too! It makes a wonderful hostess gift. Once you smell it, though, you’ll be purchasing two! $20

Representing ALL the coasts…


We LOVE our East Coast and West Coast Coasters.  And after many requests, we now have ALL the coasts. These make the perfect hostess or wedding shower gift. After all, there are many of us that have spent a little bit of time in each part of the US. $36
