Shop Indie: What We Got
Around here, finding cool independent brands is one of the perks of the job. We asked our coworkers about some of their latest finds that actually got them to add to cart. Here’s a handful of purchases that Big Cartel employees made recently from our community of designers, makers, and more.
Wiry Name Necklace, Lane Walkup
Vanessa says: I bought a custom necklace from Lane Walkup - this has become a new year tradition of sorts for me. I’d snag more from her shop, but it sells out very quickly!
Flower Boy Print, Pavlov Visuals
Lauren says: I bought a bunch of prints from Ryan Sprague of Pavlov Visuals. Been obsessed with his aesthetic for some time now.
On Vintage China Still Life Oil Painting, Sheri Gee
Max says: We wanted to invest in some beautiful art that we would enjoy for a lifetime and she has some lovely stuff for sale. (Max selected a different one-of-a-kind painting than the one featured, but there are many options in stock.)
Medium Dotted Planter, Earthtones Pottery
Sarah says: I’ve been propagating plants like crazy and need to get them in soil.
35mm Point+Shoot Film Camera with Flash, Revolog
Andrew says: I’ve started playing around with film photography in the last year and bought a point-and-shoot camera and whole bunch of film from Revolog to keep exploring and experimenting.
Toast Tongs, Tree Works Idaho
Hilary says: This description really resonated with my experience of watching him get toast out of the toaster, so I bought these toast tongs for my dad.
Lysergic Emotions Module from Mastro Valvola, Little Box Effects
Andrew says: When I’m feeling a little stuck in a musical rut, getting new music gear always gets me inspired again.
Daffodil Print, Fickle Hill Press
Hilary says: A few of [Hilary’s kid’s] nicknames are variations on “daffodil” and I thought it was sweet.
Salad Set, Tree Works Idaho
Lauren says: Tree Works Idaho created 5 sets of hand-carved salad tongs for my close friends!
Hexagon Mug, Lollipots
Vanessa says: I bought a mug from Lollipots for my sister, I love her colors and style.
Bat Pride Flag Pin, Sofftpunk
Sarah says: These pins are sweet and cute, and come with a variety of flag options. They’re just a tiny bit goth, like my nephew, who received one from me for Christmas.
