Fun. Sassy. A little risqué. Shari Jenkins is delighted to have her work described this way. This Montana-raised cowgirl is a self-taught digital collage artist, and her work speaks to vibrant, fun-loving women with attitude–sound familiar? Women LOVE her wit and cheeky response to the roller-coaster of life. Shari’s designs layer antique photos with flowers, vintage buttons, jewelry, door knobs–the ephemera of daily life. There is so much to discover in every design. By incorporating these into popular ‘girlfriend’ gifts like make-up bags, trays, plaques, pill boxes and the like, we encourage impulse sales, and multiple purchase… because each Shari Jenkins creation is perfect for a different friend!
No matter how a family shifts, grows and changes, we know that it is still the glue that keeps our feet on the ground and lifts up our spirits. Extended families, single parent families, nurses, friends who are like siblings: despite (or maybe because of) the challenges and re-thinks in modern society, families still want to say, “This is what we think a family is. Let’s celebrate us!”
We’ve created gifts that let your customers do just that, in themes that are as diverse as a family. Some shoppers love to laugh at their own craziness. Some want to honor their roots. Some want to look forward with hope. Some are just starting out; some are shrinking.
There’s no one time or season to celebrate family; these are popular right through the year. We incorporate current trends and themes into our collections, because these pieces are designed to be on display, in homes, offices and dorms.
Our definition of family may change; our love of it never does.
Dream catchers have always captured our imagination, and in today’s hectic world, the peace and calm invoked by them is truly appealing. We have taken this concept across several categories, so more people can bring this tranquil beauty with them in their daily life.
Traditional dream catchers were crafted to filter out bad dreams in the center web, and only allow good dreams to enter your mind while sleeping. Today, we use dream catchers to remind us to always focus on the positive and let go of the negative in our lives. As well as our classic hangings, the dream catcher motif is captured in folkloric bracelets, whimsical baby wear, charms, bags and ornaments. We see that the designs appeal to a wide range of customers, and will continue to be popular going forward.
