New Envirosax

I love envirosax.
I love them so much that I have to stop myself from getting the new ones each time they come out with a new style. The latest, La Boheme, is so stunning that I have to think of people to give my old ones to so I can get new ones without feeling guilty. I love having them in my car, purse, and closet. They are just the best bag for almost every job and completely washable. They are too pretty to have just one, but for now, I'm trying not to have too many!

Bellissima Jewelry Design Trunk Show!!

One of my most popular lines in the past has been this line by Sarah Bridger of Bellissima Jewlery Design. She's sending tons of jewelry for a trunk show, and you're all invited! Her jewelry is exquisite.

All Day, 10-5pm

Come early and get the best selection!

From the Bellisima Jewelry Design website:
Designs combine semi-precious stones, shell, wood, bone, glass, crystal, sterling silver, gold, and some vintage materials to explore the relationships between elements like texture and color. With a great respect for nature, Sarah reinforces those ideas and inspirations in her work. Each piece is hand-crafted in limited quantities to ensure a level of individuality and distinctiveness within the Bellissima Jewelry Design collections.

Jeweled Bib Necklaces

Lucky Magazine

These are the coolest necklaces I've seen in a while, and they're going to be huge this fall! I'm starting to see them everywhere. I can't wait to get some in the store. They are perfect for a plain tank and a pair of jeans, or a dress. This necklace makes the whole outfit. I love a piece of jewelry that can stand alone. If I can't find any cool ones for the store, I might just have to make some!

Envirosax are back at Georgia Rae. Great new colors are so chic while saving the environment! Envirosax roll up and snap into a small lightweight roll that fits easily anywhere. They hold about twice as much as a plastic bag and can be carried on your shoulder so they're great for an all day shopping trip. Strong and easy to wash, perfect for the Farmer's Market or taking toys to Grandma's house. I keep finding great uses for them!
