Have You Seen Our Toy Selection? September 09 2014, 0 Comments

Periwinkle loves toys! We have a fabulous selection of Melissa & Doug toys. Melissa & Doug make quality, durable and educational toys and value pricing. They stand behind their product, too -- should something not last as intended, please return it, either here to the store or to the Melissa & Doug customer service team.

Many of the toys feature vintage styling -- crafted from wood to last through years of use. They look like the toys Mom and Dad enjoyed -- or Grandma and Grandpa!

 

Many feature multiple play options, so that the toy may hold up to extended play time! The packaging helpfully suggests alternative ways to play with the same toy.

 

We have a selection offered here in our Toys SHOP, a ever-changing representative sampling of the Melissa & Doug line. Or stop by the store to see all that is available!

Unique Repurposed Vintage Jewelry from Grouse & Badger September 03 2014, 0 Comments

I was so excited to find Grouse & Badger at the World Market Center Las Vegas Gift + Home Show this past winter. This husband and wife teams tears apart old unrepairable watches and typewriters and reimagines the bits as amazing jewelry pieces. At that first show I purchased lovely vintage watch face and typewriter key bracelets.

Aren't they charming? They disappeared quickly-- so, when I saw them at the GALLA show this July, I had to bring in lots! More watch face and typewriter key bracelets, as well as sweet heart shaped charm necklaces filled with gears, dangling x & o typewriter key necklaces, and this Time Flies necklace.

Each piece is handmade, unique, and completely one-of-a-kind. I've listed a selection here in our One-of-a-Kind SHOP, but there are more, too! If you are looking for more, just let me know -- I'd love to send pictures of pieces we have here in stock. Of course, I'd love to have you visit us here in the downtown Glendora Village, too!

We're so lucky here at Periwinkle to be surrounded by such talented artists and craftspeople! In store here at Periwinkle we have a selection of wonderful one of a kind work made in our own neighborhood. We'd love for you to stop by and see-- the selection is always changing.

These darling hats in child and grown-up sizes are by Colins Taxi by Jennifer Baiocchi, a collection of handmade crocheted stuff. Each cheery piece is unique! Her crocheted, flowered coffee cup cozies are fabulous.

A local photographer, Judith Heinrichs-Harmon uses her amazing work to make blank notecards. Mounted on thick embossed card stock, her photographs include sweet romantic still-lifes and lovely landscapes.

New Wrapping Paper from Love and Luck Shop! April 07 2014, 0 Comments

 I was so lucky this past January to meet Alana of Love and Luck Shop at the World Market Center Las Vegas Gift + Home Show! Her booth was lovely! She and her husband are artists and business partners creating and selling their line of charming and whimsical greeting cards, gifts and gift wrap while raising their family.  

 

 Their cards feature touches of glitter and coordinating cheerily colored envelopes. Their wrapping papers are a generous oversize and of heavy stock (great for crafting, too!)

 We're offering a selection of Love and Luck Shop wrapping papers online. For more papers, and for greeting cards, visit Periwinkle in downtown Glendora.
