As part of our journey
into Ellie Fun Day we are always trying to find ways to fund ourselves to further our purpose. As we travel throughout India we get inspired to bring back good things that we think our friends would love. So as a first time experiment we opened up our very first dry goods shoppe. Everything that was purchased here helps get us back to India to do the work that we need to do.
Wembley bear representing. (I've had him since college.)
These handmade wooden combs were sourced through the Kerala State Handicrafts Initiative. They're beautifully crafted with a smooth matte finish.
Pashmina = ultra luxurious and warm scarves! I fell in love with these once I felt them. On a chilly foggy SF day, they're so perfect for keeping my neck warm. I think I have a gazillion scarves, but I really NEEDED these.
These Lumberjack and Lumberjill bibs were such a hit! We totally sold out of these. Probably because every hip baby looks too adorable in one of these organic flannel bibs.
India is world reknown for their black teas. This Nilgiri Black tea
is from the Nilgiri Mountains that border the state of Kerala. This tea is of the Orange Pekoe species and this batch in particular is of the highest quality due to the unbroken leaf structure. It has a dark and intensely aromatic smell.
I'm so smitten by polka-dots. (Has anyone seen the J.Crew catalog??) These 100% silk scarves are sure to bring your outfits to the next sassy level.
I'm a sucker for Paris
...it's one of my favorite cities in the world. The most magical thing one might see is fireworks over the Eiffel Tower and hence my inspiration for these necklaces! Sparkly pom-poms + tiny bell + silver Eiffel = Fireworks Over Paris. My god-daughters
loved them. (note: these were hand-made by me as a "love" project)
My partner in crime, Grace. Again, couldn't have pulled this off without her! If you are interested in any of these goods, please
contact us here and let us know what you want. We're hoping to get an online shop up soon
