Handmade Journals and Pouches

We're excited to announce our first local artist selling wares at the store in O'Bryonville!


Kate Staiger crafts handmade books and pouches from recycled and upcycled materials.

Pieces of old hardcover books and found objects are sewn together to create new art objects. They contain blank, hand-cut paper inside, along with the occasional postcard or vintage bookplate. The books make lovely journals, and are a great gift paired with one of our pens--for around $20.

The pouches are great for keeping keys, cell phone, or lip gloss handy in your purse or bag. They are made of sturdy fabrics, and are embellished with buttons and hand-stitched designs. The pouches come in assorted sizes, and each design is entirely unique.

These items are available in-store only. Come in and check them out before they're gone!
