this weeks must haves

Hope you are having a lovely Thanksgiving weekend! Velouria will be closed for the big thanksgiving eat fest tomorrow, but we will reopen Friday all stocked up for those of you eager to get a head start on your holiday shopping and avoiding the dreaded mall. This weeks must have gift items start off with Violet Magpie feather clips. Her lovely combination of peacock feathers, neutral super soft feathers topped off with elegant beading spruces up any daytime outfit and makes it ready for night. We love love love the steel and gold series by Amy Tavern and sadly once the end of January hits her line will be retired, so if you have been coveting her jewelry line, treat yourself, or make sure it gets on your wish list this year! The wreath earrings are to die for. Want to give a practical gift? How about a warm and cozy tweed hat with fuzzy lining and ear flaps? Squasht by Les has us all stocked up with fashionable yet cozy winter hats. All these suggestions are handmade from scratch by the designers!

Eat well, and hope to see you soon!

Hi again!
So are you feeling the holidays looming? Don't fret! We have a trunk show this Saturday November 14th from 6-9pm for local designer duo RANDL. They will be on hand with their line of embellished zip up jackets, hoodies, wallets and fabric covered notebooks, these all make perfect gifts! And better yet they even have unisex items perfect for the guys and gals on your list.

Also, artwork by local artist/graphic designer extraordinaire, Frida Clements. Her series of paintings on wood showcases woodland creatures, and nature popping up in daily life.

new stuff, sale, and artwalk, oh my
