Shop Small Business Saturday! Special message to our customers!

Shop Small Business Saturday! Special message to our customers!
Dear Friends and Loyal Customers,

It’s time to get personal. We want to personally thank you for coming into our store and sharing your lives and your hard earned dollars. You are contributing directly to the livelihoods of dozens of artisans in the Lower East Side and across the globe, specifically in Nepal and India.

Many of us have jumped on the minimalism train, and the purging can be cathartic. Instead of not buying at all, we urge you to buy less and cherish more. Focus on the special, the handcrafted, the rare.
We believe in old-fashioned customer service, the ability to try on, think about, and touch your purchases. If this idea still interests you please come by and see our collection of locally designed jewelry, art and crafts. Our selection is crafted with intention and love and changes almost daily – so come often.
We encourage you to look carefully, to appreciate the small nuances of workmanship and to dream about whom you might gift one of our pieces to. Our small team will work with you to accomplish this from custom orders to rep airs. For the hard to shop for we offer gift certificates.
We can’t wait to see you this holiday season. Continue to look for the unusual, the different - to feel and touch and to support the small business - this Saturday and all the other days of the week. Treat everyday, including this Saturday, as Small Business Day.
Thank you to those of you who make purchases that allow us to do what we love.
We are wishing you and your families a very happy Thanksgiving!
