So, I’ve been speaking to Hillery, the owner of Specks & Keepings, for almost a month now. And I am so excited to be sharing her shop with you today. It is SO COOL! Check out the goods…
Eek. I am kind of jumping up and down right now because those Anschtecka Backpacks are insane! I’d honestly go back to school just to have an excuse to buy one (or both).
So what exactly is Specks & Keepings? And why is it so awesome?
Well, Hillery actually gave me the perfect answer to this question. Here’s what she said…
“Specks & Keepings is a small shop filled with handmade and collected objects and design. It is a showcase of thoughtfully made goods that aim to inspire a simple lifestyle that is carefully shaped and chosen… The shop currently features handmade clothing, artwork and items for the home by Anschtecka, Adam Wolpa, Eric Stiner, Hillery Sproatt, Karen Thurman, Kotoa & Rebe.
When browsing, I hope people will be overwhelmed with a sense of wonder at the beauty of a handmade life. I aimed to create a shopping environment that encourages people to think about what it is they are bringing into their homes and into their lives. I believe on some level, our possessions are an extension of ourselves and they should speak to who we are as individuals. Things are always more beautiful when they mean something to us.”
How sweet is that? I just want to give Hillery a big hug, and then go buy everything in her shop.
You can visit Specks & Keepings now and be sure to send Hillery a virtual hug for being so awesome, while you’re there. There’s no place to really do this on the site, but I’d like to think she will know in spirit if you do.
