Pictures from the Shop - Spring's Around the Corner!

What a lovely day at Greenjeans!

Spring is peeking around the corner (like the little sparrow here!) and people are feeling good today, despite the hour lost last night to daylight saving. (You remembered to set your clocks ahead, right?)

We've been listening to Charles Trenet all day, music that perfectly fits the sunny mood. Lots of people have been in visiting and shopping. And in spare moments, I took some pictures around the shop to show you some new things we have in store...

Adorable baby hats and booties beautifully designed and lovingly made from upcycled cashmere sweaters and cotton polo shirts by `e-ko logic, aka Kathleen and Charlie Tesnakis, in Troy, New York. I put them out yesterday and we're already thinking we need to order more... ($28-$45 each. Cotton set $65, cashmere set $78.)

Clothing pile problem solved! These Shaker peg boards are made of solid cherry by David Emerson in Canterbury, New Hampshire. We have two- to six-peg lengths (allot 6" per peg), as well as some cute mini pegboards perfect for keys, potholders, necklaces, etc. ($10-$45 each.)

We are very fortunate to be offering fine porcelain by two celebrated master potters. The teabowls, glazed oxblood red, are wheel-thrown by Cliff Lee of Stevens, PA. He only makes 24 a year, and we got six, though we're down to five. ($110 each.)
The little lidded vessels, which potter Barbara Sebastian calls storm fetish jars, are richly glazed red, black, or celadon. The lids are detailed with bundles of sticks or carved wooden and jade animals by artists in China. Inside, the jars are bright robin's egg blue. ($136-$150 each.)

We're off tomorrow, but check your email in the evening for the 3rd issue of the Greenjeans Gazette!
