Summer Travels

Coin Purses

Before my story takes a further pace,

It seems a reasonable thing to say

What their condition was, the full array

Of each of them, as it appeared to me,

According to profession and degree,

And what apparel they were riding in. (The Canterbury Tales, 36-41)

Summer travels! Our Canterbury Collection leather coin purses are a perfect way to store your treasures collected on your journey. These colors were inspired from some of Chaucer’s characters. Choose from the Knight (Black), the Pardoner (White), the Merchant (Brown), the Shipman (Teal), and the Scholar (Green). Customize the drawstring from an assortment of leather or tan suede.

Sawdust Art & Craft Festival


The annual Sawdust Art & Craft Festival in Laguna Beach, California is a highly anticipated summer experience. It ends on August 30th, so don’t miss an opportunity to meet over 200 local artisans and buy their designs in person. You will want to go back multiple times. This artist village in Laguna has a refreshing environment between the canyon and beach breeze. Sawdust is spread throughout the grounds and it reminds you that woodworking has been done for this year’s creations. We wore our favorite Chisme Chick leather and handcrafted bracelets. This year, we met new artists and saw some incredible glass blowing demonstrations.


We participated in a pastel workshop and took this photo of our still life arrangement. There was a small bug (featured in this photo) hiding in the vase and watched us add each stroke on the piece of paper.

Be sure to try the on grounds café where they have delicious coffee and desserts. You’ll enjoy the sounds of live music throughout the festival. They also host the Winter Fantasy starting on November 21st-December 20th with many of the same artisans. Be sure to stop by and purchase unique gifts.


Rainy Day


It’s a beautiful, rainy day in Southern California. Our handcrafted leather tassel necklace is the perfect piece to pair with Oxford-inspired brown leather shoes. We hope you have a wonderful Friday!
