Trends.

How do you feel about this word?

Do you love them, hate them, or just accept them… like inevitable wads of chewing gum on the sidewalk?

Are there any going on right now that excite you?  Are there a few that really annoy you?

Trend #1     Crystals / Crystalline Forms / Facetted things

Love this trend – in fact, it’s been a ‘trend’ for me for like, ever….. so when this started entering the zeitgeist in all the possible forms… from illustration to glass worked boxes, and ceramics to the use of naturally occurring crystals in jewelry… I was thrilled.  What’s not to like about facets?  They serve to reflect light in beautiful and random ways.   Crystals are described by their natural molecular roadmaps…. ergo, their beauty is quite literally manifest from the inside out.

Etsy is still one of our favorite sources for current trends in the design world, despite the many negatives surrounding it’s cross-over into a corporate entity. They have several weekly eblasts that illuminate trends that the powers that be at Etsy Central have seen a lot of.

There are also many many other sources.  A few of our favorite blogs and shops:Jonathan Adler, Houzz.com, NannyInez.com, Bezar.com, Takeheart.com

Happy Fourth of July!

Our shop will be open today from 11:00 till 2:00 and then we’re closing down to

go hang with buddies and enjoy some R & R.

Yesterday was a great day in the store, with so many friends, vendors, and

would-be new vendors stopping by to shop and say hi!  We were feeling the love.

Stayed tuned for a lot of new classes that kick off this week, and some exciting re-developments in that area.  Also, we cannot wait to share photos of the new designers we have in the shop!

Have a wonderful weekend with your friends and families.

See you soon at Makers….
