Sriracha and Kleenex preview

I get a cold about once a year or so. I have that cold now, and it's a whopper. I will spare you the details, but I will tell you that my only friends right now are Emergen-C, Kleenex (my overusage of Kleenex is so embarrassing; if only that were my only vice), ginger, garlic, and sriracha. So I only had the energy to photograph a few new items this week, which will be coming to the shop shortly.

Oh, the little suitcases in a couple of these photos were mine as a child. I think they were my dad's before that. They are made of a textured brown fiberglass-like material (very similar to that of some Herman Miller shell chairs). Neat, huh?

1950s olive green oxfords by Dr. Hiss.

  1. Sorry to hear you're sick. Get well soon.

  2. hopefully being surrounded by all those pretty vintage dresses will put you on the up and up very soon. feel better!!

  3. Whoa - olive green shoes by "Dr. Hiss"???? Everything was so much cooler way back when.... and those suitcases!!! LOVE! Also hope that you beat your cold soon - have you ever tried Umcka? I swear by it (available at natural food stores), makes the cold run it's course faster.

  4. So many fabulous finds. Feel better soon! :)

  5. Hope you're feeling better soon! I've got your cold too {achoo} & it is no fun at all! Try adding some wasabi to your spicy foods!

  6. Oh, I feel for you! Whenever I get a cold, its never just sniffles, its full out mountains of kleenex, chapped nose, the works. I hope you feel better soon!

    Those suitcases are really cool, btw, I don't think I've seen anything like them.

  7. Just had to pop in a say that I LOVE the new header. What is that font? It's super fabulous. You feelin' better yet? My oddball advice is to take 5,000 IU of Vit D a day along with eating lots of ginger and take hot foot baths with mustard and cinnamon. Feel better!

  8. I am feeling better--thanks everybody. B--I *have* been going crazy on the ginger (but not the Vitamin D--interesting!).

    Thanks for noticing the new header! The font is called Landsdowne, and I got it over at
