While supporting local, you can feel proud of what you buy. Freshen up your home and wardrobe with some of our favorite items!
The prettiest pink store to bring color to your purse collection. Honeymouth's leather goods are handmade by owner Georgia Vogel and some take about 45 hours to stitch. These beautiful items are made to last, so you can feel good about your purchase!

Keep those spirits high in the sky with these adorable (and really, aren't they the cutest?) marshmallow rainbow earrings made by ACF Jewelry's creative owner Caroline Farris. The light-weight earrings might bring you a little luck, but no, you can't eat them! They are coated and preserved in resin, then adorned with a handmade, nickel free ear hook. A little bit nostalgic, a lot of whimsy, and most definitely trend-setting.
