Winter Time

Christmas and New Years have past and we are all settling into Winter. For us at Shake it is a time for Spring prep – we are off to lots of design trade shows to meet with makers, planning out our Spring look.

Aesthetics include everything from minimalist, and neutrals to neons and brights! Look for new letterpress greeting cards, small batch jams, larger plants, woven baskets, colorful mixed media jewelry, floral dresses, wide legged pants, and lots of new candles! Excited for color palettes in the coral, peachy, golden, and ivory range! (Thinking about repainting our back wall in Living Coral, the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year!)

We’ll see what we find and get back to you!
