Pretty paper is our love language. That’s why we’re swooning over these three local labels we recently added to our store mix.
Two of the small businesses have an extra special place in our heart as the founders are on our Flea Style staff! From boho greeting cards to luxe life-like faux florals, check out these amazing makers and come shop them in store.
Pssst… They all make beautiful Valentine’s Day — and Galentine’s — gifts!
Maddon and Co.
Founder: Grace Dille (aka our amazing graphic designer!)
Instagram handle: @maddonandco
Describe your business in 100 words or less: Maddon and Co. is a stationery company with graphics entirely hand-drawn and hand-lettered by me. The designs are mostly a little bit vintage, a little bit modern and a little bit just things that make me smile.
Beach or mountains? I love to hike, but there’s nothing like laying on a beach with a margarita in hand!
Currently listening to: Currently navigating the wonderful world of Spotify Premium (where have I been?!) so a little bit of everything!
Favorite quote? “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all.” by Ayn Rand.
Founder: Cari Abaunza (aka our amazing sales associate!)
Instagram handle: @wellmadeheart
Describe your business in 100 words or less: Well-Made Heart is a budding paper goods company currently selling handpainted holiday cards meant to inspire a happy heart in everyone.
Hopes for your business in the next three years? I would love to see my tiny business expand into a full-fledged paper goods company that sells journals, stationery, calendars and the works!
Favorite quote? “What is done in love is done well,” by Vincent Van Gogh.
Founder: Heather Woodworth Goff
Instagram handle: @lesmoulages
Describe your biz in 100 words or less! We hand-craft beautiful botanical-inspired artwork and objects for your home, event or as a gift for someone you love or appreciate.
Fun fact about your company? We send part of our proceeds to the restoration efforts of Musée des Moulages in Paris, France!
Favorite part about owning a small business? It offers a creative outlet and an opportunity for me to make things that will bring joy to others!
Dream dinner guest? Maria Sybella Marian because many of my botanical designs are inspired by her drawings from two centuries ago. She was a pioneer naturalist when women weren’t really doing those things.
Favorite quote? “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts,” by Winston Churchill.
