If you've been a reader of my blog you know I do weekly features called Etsy Love, where I take an Etsy artist who's work I've come across or been shown and share it with all my readers. Today I'm starting another feature called Small Business Love. For the next few months I'll be pulling small business locally and nationally to share with you, featuring their products and story. If you're a small business or know of one you'd like to see get involved, I'd love for you to shoot me an email.
To start it out, I've found the perfect little local company called Figs and Ginger.
When Evan and I moved to Asheville last winter, one of our first introductions to the local art community was The Big Crafty, a huge get together of indie crafters along with good music, food, and drinks. One of my favorite artists was Figs and Ginger, a husband and wife team that creates eco- friendly sterling jewelry inspired by the simple beauty found in forests, both imaginary and real. They got their start in the indie craft scene back in 2003 while selling their creations through their temporary brick-n-mortar shop, and by December 2006 were officially named and pumping out their creations.
website, sign up to their email list for special deals, and pop over to their blog to say hi! They also travel around to crafter fairs and have stores that carry their products throughout the states, so make sure to check to see if they're coming to a place near you!
P.S. They also have really great mother's day gift ideas.
