Vintage Cashmere in Atlanta

A shout out to our dear friend and fellow Willows, Jen Sertl of Angelina Accoutrements, who has a trunk show at Mark Shale in Atlanta this weekend. Jen designs the most beautiful, sensual women's clothing and accessories, all repurposed from vintage cashmere.

To make her goods even more enticing, 10-20% of each purchase
from the current offerings page of her web site is donated to Amani ya Juu, a ministry that teaches sewing skills to refugee women in Nairobi, Kenya so that they can provide for themselves and their families.

Good luck in Atlanta Jen!

Winslow's Home & Farm

I have been meaning to do a post on Winslow's Home & Farm, a wonderful new St. Louis store, for a long time. Now that our products are being sold there, all the more reason!

Winslow's is a true general store. You can walk in and purchase items as diverse as a ticking striped market bag, all-natural suntan lotion or a Swedish salad spinner (all of which I purchased on my first visit). In addition to carrying merchandise of the magnificent as well as the mundane type, Winslow's is a restaurant, with a rotating dinner menu, yummy breakfast and lunch entrees (and great coffee, of course) and the most mouth-watering, gorgeous and delectable baked goods I have had in St. Louis.

If you are in the area, drop by if you can. It really is a wonderful experience and unique in St. Louis.
