Meet our new members! Fall edition

As the seasons change, we welcome new members to our lovely team.  I hope you enjoy their work and stop by their shops to say hello!  Maybe even start a bit of holiday shopping. Every local purchase really counts!

Planet Love Card - As long as I'm on this planet, I will love you by Cynla 

Cindy LaColla of Cynla hails from Beacon, NY.  Her shop is full of lovely and whimsical cards with the illustrations being made from a combination of hand drawing, traditional painting, and digital work.  She also pulls inspiration from her partial Japanese heritage.  Just gorgeous!  Welcome to the team.

Handmade Sterling Silver and Amazonite Dangle Earrings by apogeejewelry

Heather Sorrell artist of apogeejewelry works in the delicious town of Sugar Loaf, NY.  This shop is full of silver and gold jewelry with some gorgeous stones thrown in.  I adore all the textures she uses and wish I could buy them all for myself!  Thanks for joining.

Avocado Oil Soap with Lemon by HudsonNaturals

Christina Silvestris of Gardiner, NY runs HudsonNaturals, a shop full of soaps!  All of her soaps and other body products are made with natural materials and avocado oil.  All of her creations sound like they would taste delicious, and I'm sure they smell that way. She even has beer soap!  Nice to meet you.

HAMAKO - Mobile or Garland- Soft Green Yellow Blue Neutral by GINandRUMMYstudio

Shannon Anastasia, the artist behind GINandRUMMYstudio, folds in Highland Falls, NY.  Her shop is full of sweet and colorful paper crane mobiles and other paper goods.  Although they seem to be marketed for kids, I'd certainly hang one in my room!  Hope you like it here.

Yellow Star Pillow - Plush Felt Toy / Childrens Pillow by QuarterLifeLuck

Kim L. runs QuarterLifeLuck while based in Windham, NY.  This shop is full of super cute fabric goodies ranging from cup cozies and banners to the sweetest stuffed pillows.  I'm a huge fan off all the colors she uses, but how can I decide between all the wonderful fall cup cozies! - I'll just have to get them all.  Good to see you here.

Vegan Clutch Purse from John Met Betty

Last we have John Met Betty from Croton-on-Hudson featuring fun retro style accessories designed with unique vintage fabrics and buttons dating from the 1950's to 1970's.

That's all I have for you this season, I hope you'll check out some of these new members and their shops to give them some love, And remember, when you shop local, you're helping your neighbors follow their dreams!
