We have so much love for local artisans, that sometimes people think we carry all local products. Not true, my friends. We support talented craftspeople throughout the country. Some of the small companies we work with (like Petersboro Baskets and Faribault Blankets) have even been making their goods since the 1800s! But this week, we want to spotlight the locals. There are so many inspired makers, after all. Here are five within five miles that are making our week:
Maria Janeff over at Calliope makes such beautiful bags. Love her fabric choices.
These locals make such unique flavors. Early Girl Tomato jam or Strawberry-Pink Peppercorn jam, anyone?
Jenny is really putting her arts degree to good work. The pattern designs on her napkins and zip pouches are always unique and cool.
We can't get enough of his whimsical enamel-work! Such cute pops of color.
They just keep turning out the cute linen aprons. We liked their original orange color, but we might like their new bark color even more.
American Made goods.
