Made by hand in a small workshop in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Our handmade goods are constructed from materials with a light carbon footprint, and we source from companies that are ethically grounded. We donate 5% of every sale to support environmental protection groups. 

December-April we will be donating 10% of all profits to Minnesota’s Environmental Initiative, a non-profit that builds partnerships to develop collaborative solutions to Minnesota’s environmental problems. For more information please visit:

Holiday Bazaar - December 7th

We're thrilled to participate in a Holiday Bazaar this Sunday in South Minneapolis! In addition to live music, coffee, free bike tune-ups and lots more, the Purity Bakery building will be full of local makers of fine handmade goods. Below are some of our favorites! 

The Gold Thread Collective makes fine knit hats, scarves and other treasure in Minneapolis. Everything they create looks super cozy! Check out their Etsy to get a peek and follow along on Instagram

Yellow Sea Cribbage is Marlo and Kati, who create and paint amazingly cool cribbage boards. Each one features a custom arrow, making every board unique. Check out this beautiful photoshoot by L&E Photography to whet your gaming appetite.

Casey Deming is a visual and sound artist, responsible for countless record sleeves, show posters, and experimental art in general.  His website is filled with outstanding examples of his distinctive style.

Nick Lundeen makes fine jewelry, sews, woodworks, and stonecarves. Tour his studio and read an interview from the Handful Of Salt blog. 

Create Laser Arts provides custom laser cutting and engraving services. They also design and make their own goods and wares, often repurposing materials to create something new and one of a kind. 

Urban Bean Coffee serves up some of the best brew in the Twin Cities. Stop by their top-notch website and follow them on Instagram - or just stop in and grab a cup!

And of course, we'll be there, with a whole bunch of backpacks for you to try on. Our table is probably going to have a little bowl of chocolate too, just saying.  

All these and more will be down at the Purity Bakery building on Sunday! Three dollars gets you inside with a hot cup of cider, popcorn and a raffle ticket. Hope to see you there!
