Ministry of Culture
Ministry of Culture has replenished our supply of 5 panel hats and has filled a very big void! These one-of-a-kind accessories are perfect for guys and girls.
We have restocked on all Little Minnow infinity scarves, mini infinity scarves and hair twist scarves in every color imaginable! New designs she has sent us include the season-appropriate flower blossoms. Scarves are made out of rayon and spandex which makes them super soft and light weight, perfectly practical for accessorizing during the hot summer months.
Miso handmade has sent us a SO MUCH CATNIP filled toys! And dog donuts, too! Ice cream cones, crispy bacon, donuts, maui wowie...what more could your cat want?
How We Build Our Collection
Birdfolk Collective sells artwork from over 160 artists!! The artwork we carry comes from a range of locations -- from England to Canada, Portland, OR to Portland, ME; San Francisco, CA to Austin, TX and Matha's Vineyard, MA to Burlington, VT. Basically we cover the entire US, and then some.
How do we choose the art that fills the shop??
The curator behind this wide reaching collection is the business owner, entrepreneur and art contributor Nicole Carey! She has en eye for products that will enhance and appeal to the aesthetics of her vision. She locates artists by scouring Etsy with specific keywords, by discovering artists through her participating in craft shows -- especially the Burlington Farmer's Market & Artist Market -- and, artists reach out to her after discovering the shop.
We hope you've enjoyed perusing our new additions and learning a little bit more about the shop!
See you next week,
