Happy Holidays!

Since the holidays are always a great time for appreciation and thanks (well, anytime is a great time, but at Christmas relatives and friends tend to be on hand), we wanted to thank all our customers, friends and family for your support of us and our business.

When Christina and I opened Workshop – almost 7 years ago, yikes! – we had hoped that there would be enough like-minded people around to support a business like ours. Both our Dads and some of our friends were quite sure that we were nuts, yet they wielded a hammer/paintbrush/glue stick to support us anyway.

Now our business has grown to 3 lovely full time staff ladies and a whole slew of others who are in and out, always smiling. Our dream has come true.

So, today is a thank you day: thank you from each one of us and from each one of our designers: thank you to our customers for supporting handmade and buying local. You are all proof that personal decisions have an effect in our community.

Happy and safe holidays,

Bridget & Christina

Better than a Convertible

Sometimes our designers make convertible pieces that are so creative and fun that I just can’t imagine not buying them and this is really one of those times!

What is it? A scarf, a wrap, a cardi? The most perfect Christmas gift ever?

Yes, yes, yes…and yes!  (I’ve already put one on hold for myself and one for my mom!)

We have carried this button wrap for a few months now and we loved it a lot.  Recently, however, the designer sent us a video of the many ways you can wear it and when I popped into flock yesterday afternoon I found a bunch of girls – with Laura and Emily right in the middle – staring mesmerized at the mini digital frame she sent, trying the wraps on, laughing and messing around (there were guffaws)!

p.s. the scarves are bamboo and wool…yummmmy!
