The Shop: Staff Picks

See what items our GAC staff just can’t pass up in The Shop this month!

I love the patterns for these little planters, they're perfect for a small succulent or air plant - I also just love a little ceramic guy. Baby Planters, $36/ea by Elaine Ware
These towels are not only really cute and absorbent, but they are screen printed on recycled flour sacks at East Street Arts in New Haven. Each purchase supports an individual creator & an organization that shares opportunities with artisans of all abilities. Flour Sack Towels, $12/ea
I love the colors and different sizes of these ceramic vases. Artist Kim McCarthy, CA creates them in a range of juicy colors, that pair with tablewear in the same colors.
It's vase season! Beautiful 7" glass blown vase in blues and golds is gorgeous on its own or with fall foliage.  Artist is Silver Street Glass in Granby CT
I love Nina Donnelly's jewelry, especially her earrings (my Bitmoji is wearing a pair, a style called the "Maureen!") They are gleaming, modern and sophisticated.
This handmade wrap comes in a zillion colors and is a cinch to throw over your head when there's a small chill in the air.
I love using bar soap and appreciate the recycled packaging. This artist creates lots of lovely scents that can be paired with her candles - they make great gifts!
I'll wear any piece created by local jewelry artist Susan Roberts. Her necklaces have gorgeous stones and colors, perfect with t-shirts or more formal outfits.
