Amelia is the shop's eponymous in-house line of clothing inspired by special objects and the memories they evoke. Amelia’s simple, feminine, and classically inspired clothes are the uniform of evenings on front porches sipping sweet tea and cocktails, riding bicycles down quiet roads, snacking on homemade pies, having new adventures, and reveling in favorite stories.
Damn Fine Tea
Charles and Erik started the Damn Fine Tea Company because they love a good cup of tea. They love the romance of tea and its rich history, the way tea looks and smells, and how no two cups are ever the same. They believe that if the tea in your cup is anything less than fantastic, you’re missing out. They stand behind all of their teas, they think they’re damn fine, and they hope you’ll agree.

Her work with shelter pets makes her doubly awesome.

MOSS Handmade was borne out of a love for crafts and traditions passed down. It is a study in contrast, a marriage between hard and soft elements, fabric and metal. It is finding new expressions out of the old. It is rooted in the belief that things are made beautiful by the stories behind them and the love that goes with making them by hand. Diana Schreiber inherited her mad crochet skills from her paternal grandmother and her sense of style from growing up in a house full of women in Oregon.

Made by hand using organic oils, butters, and golden beeswax combined with pure essential oils and botanically infused oils.

2 Midnight Studios
Liane Crigler's design pulls elements from nature, celestial bodies, world cultures, and her own life. Her pieces are less a collection of metals and jewels as they are an anthology of stories, moments, emotions, and experiences expertly crafted in wearable works of art.
Una began with the idea to stitch not-so-basic clothing in oragnic cottons and reclaimed fabrics and focus on small scale, local production. Susan does most of that stitching herself. While the name Una is the female form of the Spanish word for one, as in, one girl, it is also latin for "in one together" a powerful notion that connects Susan to her community in an inspiring and much less lonely way than she could have imagined.
