Anatomy Lessons, Lyndie Dourthe

Once again Lyndie Dourthe amazes us with a new batch of her Boîtes à Trésors inspired by French cabinets of curiosities and 17th & 18th century encyclopedia illustrations.

Whether you wear it as a brooch or just keep it as a little treasure, these handmade pieces are attention getters. Choose from heart, brain, lungs, or hand. Each has a silver plated stick-pin on the back and comes in its own painted box. Made in France.

Stiksel Passport Cases

Leather, canvas, handmade locally. We got our first batch of "Never a Dull Passport" cases. Made and designed by Karin Röling of Rotterdam, these cases are made from leather and canvas remnants and hand stamped leather patches.

These "Never a Dull Passport Cases" will be sure to put a smile on customs officials and passport control officers faces.
