New Item Alert: Potholders!

With just a few days left until our last public craft show before the Holidays, we thought it would be a great time to officially announce our newest Pretty in Gingham item: potholders!



These potholders feature fun fabrics and adorable designs on both sides and are filled with a special protective layer that will protect your hands when grabbing hot items out of the oven.  They can even be used as trivets or heatpads to protect surfaces like a table top from a hot dish.



IMG_1300Pair our brand new potholders with one of our signature aprons or dishtowels to create the perfect holiday gift!


Stop by and visit us this weekend!  We would love to see you there!

Keep cool with KoolNeck!

Because it’s been so stinking hot this year in Southern California and because sometimes it’s utterly unbearable and because we figured it would be better to do something about it than to sit here and complain, we decided to keep create our brand new KoolNeck product!


KoolNeck is a fun, fashionable way to stay cool no matter what it is you are up to!  All you have to do is soak the band in water to activate the safe, nontoxic polymer crystals then wear them around your head or neck.  As the moisture from the crystals evaporates, the KoolNeck band will reduce your body temperature leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.  Keep a second KoolNeck in the fridge or an ice chest to swap out with the one you are wearing after it reaches body temperature.


KoolNeck uses:
– Reduces risk of heat or sunstroke
– Relief for headaches, migraines, fever, insect bites, sprains, swelling, minor sports injuries
– Great for yard work, gardening, hiking, fishing, concerts, camping, jogging, cycling, construction, exercise
– Can also be used on pets

Even Allie loves her KoolNeck!

We’ll be featuring our brand new KoolNeck at our upcoming craft fair in on Sunday November 2.  Get all the details here.  We would love to see you there!

We’ve got that Halloween feeling

Whether the Southern California weather agrees or not, Halloween and the rest of the holidays are just around the corner.  What better way to add some spooktacular fun to your home than with our festive Halloween dish towels.


Our Pretty in Gingham towels are perfect for the kitchen, bathroom or a guest room and are a great way to add a functional little pop of color to your home.  Wrap them up with a bottle of wine or sweet treats and they can easily double as a hostess gift for any of the Halloween shindigs you’ll be attending this year.


And in case you were wondering how Allie will be celebrating Halloween….

Craft Fair weekend recap

It was HOT this weekend.  Southern California was having another ridiculously warm weekend.  It was the kind of weekend where the only thing that brought any kind of relief was envisioning yourself jumping into a bucket of ice water and sitting there for awhile with a cold drink in hand.

Needless to say, the show had to go on and we are so thankful for those of you who put on your sunblock and braved the heat to visit us at the Gedatsu craft fair this weekend.  There were vendors both indoors and outdoors and the heat was relentless no matter where you were since there was no air conditioning and no breeze.  But we made the best of it and had a great time sharing our Pretty in Gingham products and getting to chat with friends both new and old.



Our next craft fair will be coming up on Saturday November 2 at the East San Gabriel Valley Japanese Community Center in West Covina, CA from 10am-3pm.  The Annual Kiku Crafts and Food Fair will feature handmade crafts from local vendors along with a raffle, food and beverages.  Mark your calendars for a great day of shopping and fun!  Get all the details here!  We hope to see you there.
