Vendor Profiles: Artist Robby Herbst & OneEleven

Standard

Today let’s take a look at two vendors whose wares help make CFR the fun little shop that it is.

First up is OneEleven, the fabulously hip collection of bow ties we have here in the shop. We love the patterns and luxe fabrics. Raise your hand if you’re happy that bow ties have come back into fashion in a big way? It’s easy to imagine every tie in this collection dressed up for all those summer time weddings quickly approaching or dressed down for an evening out.

Next up is the collection of prints we have from local artist Robby Herbst. It’s feeling appropriate to feature Robby’s witty arboreal works a few days after Earth Day. These are incredibly reasonably priced and would look great framed. My personal favorite is the tree growing out of the TV set. Get outside and play, folks!

And while you’re outside walk yourself down to CFR to pick up a snazzy OneEleven tie or a Herbst print. We’ll see you soon!

Vendor Profile: Tastefully Dirty Lotions

Standard

Do you know what has saved my hands this winter? Working in a store that sells these lovely lotions. Tester bottles! Yeah!

Tastefully Dirty is another great local business that we’re pleased to have in our store as a vendor partnership. The company is based in Grandview and makes all natural, plant based skin and hair care products. Here, I’ll let their site tell you about it:

Tastefully Dirty is a plant-based hair and skin care company that uses essential oils for therapeutic benefits. Our products are completely plant based, vegan, never tested on animals and do not contain any sodium laurel sulfates, paraben, or petroleum. Every product is created with a specific purpose in mind. Essential oils are chosen for their unique properties, whether it be anti-aging, skin discoloration, rosacea, to give your skin that “glow” or the many other amazing benefits that essential oils can provide.

I love the scents but my personal go-to is the Lavender & Spearmint. And just look at how cute that travel size bottle is! Perfect for any bag.

Since it looks like we may have a few more weeks of harsh weather please stop by the shop and check out these lovely lotions. Your skin will thank you immensely.

Its almost here!!! Those days when it stays light longer, less clothes are worn, you don’t slip on your butt walking to your car, and COLOR!!! As life thaws out, more and more spring colors are popping up everywhere. Most of you who know me, are fully aware with my obsession with chartreuse. I know you can imagine how excited I was to get that tub of color and get to work.

This is what came of my spring preparation. This incredible stools that I so badly want to take home, but of course I have no room. So they are here in the shop waiting for a good home to love them like I do.
