Have you guys heard of Of a Kind? One of my dearest friends visited me this weekend and gave me the most adorable grab bag as a late birthday/early housewarming gift. I had never heard of this site but when she described it to me, it sounded like something totally up my alley.. and she was right! Of a Kind features products from new and unique designers – jewelry, clothes, stationery, home goods, and more. I love it because you can really get a sense of the designers’ stories and creative processes. It’s awesome to “get to know” the person behind the product and you really do gain a sense of appreciation for everything they do — something we really value here at The Paper Mint Press. It’s also great because the designers create “editions” especially for Of a Kind.. so you know you are truly getting something unique. :)
In my grab bag were the following items:
1. Campfire candle & matches by Catbird (btw – Ive been such a huge fan of pretty much all their jewelry ..check em out!)
2. We’ve Moved postcards by Rifle Paper Co.
3. Guest toothbrush set by Izola (soooo thoughtful, no?)
4. Black & white tea towel by Shapes & Colors Textiles (too cute to actually use!)
…and here is a list of some of the things I’m eyeing:
