matt & nat for fall

new matt & nat bags are here for fall! we are loving the new shapes they've introduced for this season. and in case you didn't know, matt & nat is a completely vegan line out of canada. they are constantly experimenting with sustainable and recycled materials -- the lining of each bag is made from recycled plastic bottles! their commitment to being animal and eco-friendly has only ever complemented the functional, aesthetically-pleasing design of their products. who doesn't want a well-made, earth-friendly bag that's also attractive?!

new candles from paddywax!

we just got a huge shipment of candles & soaps from a new line for us, paddywax. this nashville based company has over 15 collections of soy wax candles, and we love the custom blends they've whipped up! here is a small sampling of what we have in the shop:

mint mojito, anyone? 
the classic candles are also available in cucumber grapefruit and limoncello. 

we love that paddywax has these tiny 2 oz. travel tins, available in mint mojito, cucumber grapefruit, limoncello, new mown hay, and gardenia. (is it too early to utter the words "stocking stuffer?")
a perfect summer candle for the patio!

the eco line candles come in upcycled wine bottles, and fragrances include mandarin & lavender, rosemary & citrus, pomegranate & currant, thyme & olive leaf, verbena & lemongrass, basil & cucumber, and grapefruit & coriander. pair them up with a matching soap, and your hostess gift is good to go.
the library collection is hands-down one of our favorite groups! smartly packaged with the authors' signatures and memorable quotations, these candles call to mind the comfort of a good book. come find out what edgar allan poe, jane austen, leo tolstoy, and emily dickinson smell like!
brightly colored rustic mason jars hold scents like ocean tide & sea salt, salted grapefruit, vanilla & oakmoss, and gardenia & tuberose.

 
the happy collection comes in beautiful patterns and a great votive size. also available in orange peel & tamarind, ginger peach, lily & green clover, poppy & coriander, salted grapefruit, and sea salt & the surf.
more tiny travel tins from the apothecary collection! fresh garden blends with rosemary, basil, verbena, and eucalyptus.
