Ollie + Squish Handmade Holiday Guide
This week we're sharing a little love with five of our favorite handmade shops. Get a head start on your holiday shopping with these super creative finds. And remember, when you shop small, not only are you receiving a totally unique gift, you're supporting the maker behind it :-)
As a special thank you for shopping small with us, we're offering 25% off the entire shop this weekend with code 25OFF. Sale ends on Sunday 11/17 at midnight EST.
So without further ado...
PULP is a small design studio/workshop in Rhode Island, selling thoughtfully designed, responsibly sourced and ethically made hats, bags and more. We especially love their hats, which are released in small batches printed and sewn by hand. Follow along on their Instagram to know when new batches are released because they sell out quickly!
Secret Holiday is owned by Ashley Brown Durand in Northampton, Mass. She makes awesome banners and flags for the home that serve as great reminders for living. Not to mention, they're designed and handmade by Ashley herself, and they're downright adorable. Here are some of our favorites:
She has a lovely Etsy shop here, too.
Campfire Pottery is a studio/shop based in Portland, Maine. Husband and wife team, Kristen and Joe Camp, create handmade pottery designed with the goal of bringing people together, inside and outdoors. They also offer workshops if you ever find yourself spending a weekend in Portland!
Almost too cute for words, Mirtle creates tiny embroidery humans and creatures which make for adorable gifts or little reminders to keep in your pocket. There are so many to choose from, but as each and every piece is handmade in small batches, they do sell out quickly so you have to be ready! Pop one in your child's pocket when they have a big test they are nervous about, send them to friends who need a little boost or just keep one of these little cuties for yourself.
Follow along on her Instagram for shop updates!
Kristin of Ohweeo Needleworks is based in Brooklyn and is a self-taught embroiderer. She creates a wide range of embroidery gifts from jewelry to wall hangings, but she's probably best known for her amazing ultrasound pieces.
