Found Goodness: Tea Towels Abounding

I have a gorgeous new selection of tea towels in at the shop……hand picked exclusively for Knack by our friend Aaron while on his last trip to India. I gave him some money and a shopping list, and he was gracious enough to spend a day shopping with Knack in mind…….and I am totally digging his picks! There are some really great batik pillows as well……more on those to come!

So excited about being open tomorrow night for a few hours {6-9 pm} to get my feet wet before the GRAND OPENING on October 19th! Woot!

New Things

Yesterday, was a busy busy day of market in Atlanta. I always have such mixed emotions about heading to the market. In one way I dread it, because of all of the crazy nonsense you have to dig through to hopefully find a gem……but then in another way, when you find that gem…that shining gem… in the midst of all the ribbons, monograms and polka dots……it is completely worth the trip.

I believe I found my two gems this trip, and am very excited about carrying these new lines at Knack this year: Peg and Awl & Sir | Madam.

I love this excerpt from the mission statement of Sir | Madam which states: “The products are designed to be timeless, and to marry well with a range of styles in today’s eclectic and collected interiors.” You see, they speak my language.

Then you have Peg and Awl….a husband and wife team who make beautiful things from found objects that are beautifully crafted and useful in the home: “Our work is made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable, longlasting treasures”. Perfect.

Both of these are spot on, and in line with the Knack way of life.

Coming Soon.
