Liza, sister of Hickoree’s boys Sandy and Emil Corsillo, is an incredible artist and illustrator. If you follow her work like I do, you’ll be thrilled to find that you can now purchase the cards she illustrated for her brothers’ shop. The card set includes an assortment of five cards, illustrated and hand-colored on Italian mouldmade paper. Subjects of the cards are memorable wares from the store. At only $20 a set, it’s a no brainer gift for yourself or a deserving friend.
If you’re smart, you’ll be staying away from the mainstream hustle and bustle that is Black Friday. But there’s no reason you can’t still treat yourself to a good buy. Head over to a couple of my favorite independent designers who are offering equally enticing discounts on their well made products for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.
Forestbound: Alice creates a custom tote bag every year at a seriously reasonable price of $50. This year’s tote features her new branding which I love.
Structure Design & Build: Peter and Katrine hand-make all of their beautiful home goods. We have become a collector of their glass works. Head over to their online shop to enjoy an extra 20% off this saturday with the code SMALLBIZSALE.
WHARF: Rob has some sweet doorbusters at 40% off planned for friday. Only available during in store and online business hours so hop to it! If you miss it, don’t fret, they’ll also be hosting equally enticing deals on saturday.
Hickoree’s: Sandy and Emil are offering an extra 20% off all wares in their shop this friday through sunday. Use code BLACKFRIDAY online or, “Hey, gimme 20% off” in the shop.
Joinery: Not only has this shop just opened the “doors” to its online shop, they are also offering 15% off clothing friday through monday (online and in store).
The Corsillo brothers have outdone themselves with another impeccable collection of bow ties, pocket squares, bandanas, scarfs, and ties for their The Hill-Side Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. Featuring striped flannel twill, chenille stripe knit, gauze stripe, herringbone gingham, printed duck cloth, printed chambray, and canvas (just to name some) this collection is a botomless goodie-bag. And the lookbook isn’t so bad either (note understatement). Their idea of sending samples and disposable cameras to shops around the world that carry the brand was ingenious and produced a collection of images that not only do the product justice, but embody the community of this ever-growing brand. Now let’s talk about that blue woodland camo.
Head over to Hickorees for a mega sale with an additional 20% off if you use code DOUBLESALE.
