EVE Team Review: Best Shops of the Week

In the big picture, laughter and fun play an important role. I love it when I find shops that have quality items and a sense of humor.

Vintage Shop of the Week: Tipple + Snack

Though it sounds like a British breakfast snack, the inspiration for this shop's name comes from the title of a 1931 cocktail guide, which totally sums up the feel of this vintage shop. There's something quirky about the collection of retro finds that draws you into each page... maybe it's those fabulous French swim trunks?

Handmade Shop of the Week: Frighten

I admit that I've been a huge fan of the slightly odd and surreal all my life. That's why I love Mari's shop - not only is her sense of style is so unique but because almost every image makes me chuckle. Take it from someone who knows odd - these fanciful collages will be the perfect conversation starters hanging above your mantle. Things that make you go, "Hmmm..."

Mixed media collages

Newbie Shop of the Week: Aluma

Aluma opened in January of 2013 with a spectacularly fun vibe right out of the gate. The marvelous construction of each piece of clothing is captured perfectly, and the color choices are just plain fun! This shop makes me wish I still had small children. Hmm... there must be someone I can buy those cool pants for.
