MADE IN USA Gift Guide
Thank you very much for considering THIS NIGHT socks as gifts for your friends and family! If you are looking for other gifts made in America by small businesses, here are some that I really like:
WALLETS & PURSES by OFFCHUTES
I have a wallet and a purse by Barbara of OffChutes (based in Oregon), and I love them! They are beautiful, lightweight, and made of old paragliders and parachutes.
BONSAI by DANDY FARMER
I have a little tree from Dandy Farmer (based in Brooklyn), which really brings me joy each day. Matt and Paul have created these for people who are not bonsai experts –– the pot, made by a local artist, is designed to hold water well yet drain (so your tree doesn't need to be watered all the time but won't rot), for example. It's been about two years, and my tree is still alive!
The folks at Kerf Case (based in Pittsburgh) make really lovely wooden cases for phones (and they do protect them when dropped, as I have found), and Kerf also offers really great customer service!
Cody and Ali of Untitled_Co. (based in Philadelphia), make beautiful and useful wooden products. I have an air plant holder, but they make cutting boards and much more.
Andrea of Savannah Hope Studio (based in NYC) makes beautiful, wonderful-smelling soaps and more with natural ingredients.
Tiffany of The Raspberry Room (based in Brooklyn) makes beautiful, lavender-filled eye masks (and also cute zippered pouches and pillows)!
I love the paintings and drawings of Susan Homer (based in Brooklyn) so much! They feature things I love ––patterns, colors, birds, and flowers –– and bring me joy!
Breehan lives in Maine now, but much of her beautiful work is focused on the wilderness of Wisconsin, where she grew up.
The quilts below are by Sarah Nishiura and Patricia Belyea. Patricia runs Okan Arts (based in WA) with her daughter, Victoria –– they sell vintage Japanese yukata cotton, and their gallery has incredibly beautiful quilts. The Okan Arts newsletter is also very interesting (and one that I read as soon as it arrives!).
