August is Black Business Month
August is Black Business month, so we wanted to take a moment to shine a spotlight on the amazing Black-owned brands we carry in our brick & mortar and online store! Shop all of our Black-owned brands here. Keep scrolling to learn more of what they offer and why we love 'em!
Delaware-based artist, Kara Hinson, is known for her ethereal illustrations of women immersed in dreamy landscapes. Her art is both soothing and empowering all at once. Choose your favorite print (or two, or three!). The perfect jump off point to that new gallery wall you've always wanted. To learn more about the artist, check out our recent interview with her, here!
Malcom McDowell is a local ceramicist who is kind and humble, so we'll do the bragging for him. His work does not disappoint. These handmade beauts are well-priced and well made. Not to mention cute as all get out. You're gonna wanna fill your cupboards with these precious, soft-hued ceramic mugs (that allow for copious amounts of coffee mind you). ;-) And we love that his candles can be repurposed post-burn. Consider it your new favorite catch-all or the perfect vessel for a succulent. Shop all the goodies from Now Open Sunday right here!
Philly-based artist & in-house designer, Joslyn Moore, works primarily in the medium of digital drawing, collage, and photo manipulation. Thanks to her, we have new Ritual MERCH you can rep! We adore this gentle horsey, the glimmer in its eye, and its kick-ass message. Not only does her work rock, but she herself is a delight and always exudes inspiration. When you stop by our Brick & Mortar, Joslyn’s energy will put a smile on your face, and you can bet your bottom dollar her playlists will have your fingers snappin’. Shop her new merch and her Summer Camp-inspired keychains. And don’t forget to tread lightly!
Michelle B. candles are made by one of our very own in-house designers, Brandi Jones. Flavors like Pineapple Mojito scream summer bliss, while her other scents like ‘Breathe’ ask for a moment of reflection and peace. We also love that these candles have wooden wicks to create that fire crackle we crave in our city apartments! Shop her entire candle selection here. P.S. She's also an expert when it comes to all things jewelry and gems. When you stop in at Hjalmar Bottengårds vei 10, feel free to pick her brain on custom work, bridal & engagement ideas, and beyond!
