Update: What's New at Wild Poppy Goods

Oh, hey there! It has been a while, hasn't it!? Here are a few favorites currently on the site. 

1. The Calder Necklace, made by Young Frankk, is hands down my favorite piece of jewelry in the shop right now. We've almost sold out, but there is one left! Better snag it up before I do because I am preeeetty tempted. Seriously. The perils of owning a small business ;) 

2. These matching earrings are pretty rad as well. Pair with just about anything for an instant cool girl look.  

3. This bowl from Forged & Found is perfect for so many things. I just love the soft white color and the organic shape! 

4. Mid Century brass goblets... I mean, come on! How good are these? I love that they have just the right amount of shine to them, and the texture makes them have a more natural and casual vibe. 

5. Lauren (my amazing studio mate and owner of Lauren Winter) modeling an early 1950s bias cut dress. Isn't it so lovely with those art deco inspired details!?  

6. This 1960s wiggle eyelet dress is surly stunner. If it were my size, I'd seriously snatch it up in a hot second. It's the right amount of sexy, comfortable, cute, and.... it is SUPER flattering. 

New Arrivals from Forged & Found

This week we added some beautiful ceramics that are handmade in Athens, Georgia by Forged & Found. What I most admire about her work is the element of uniqueness, in that no items are the exact same. There is a quiet elegance about her work; one that is both playful and beautiful at the same time. Another plus? You don't have to spend an arm and a leg to own a piece with meaning. Prices range from $16 - $40 per product. 

If you are a Palo Santo lover like myself, these incense huts are a must. I love watching the smoke rise from the top! Her ceramic cheese boards are a kitchen essential as they are so beautiful yet durable and easy to clean. And, while we are on the topic of kitchen essentials, aren't these salt cellars so cute? They are great to have out on the table or by the stove for a quick pinch of salt. Or if you aren't much of a home cook, they sure look good with a few rings inside 'em, too.  Shop the entire collection here -------- 

Maker Spotlight: M Grace Jewelry

One of my favorite aspects of my job is being able to work with likeminded, passionate, and creative women. When buying for Wild Poppy Goods, I seek out those who believe in what they create. I truly feel that the objects you fill your life with should be made intentionally, ethically, and be beautiful or functional. That is why I was drawn to the work of Malia Grace Mau. It is evident that every piece that comes out of her studio is made with care and love is poured into it. Malia is the woman behind Los Angeles based jewelry line, M Grace Jewelry. She uses the ancient lost wax technique to make all of her jewelry and carves each by hand. All production is locally sourced and made from recycled metal. The collection draws from images and symbols found in ancient civilizations and nature, combined with a modern rustic aesthetic. Each piece is carefully considered and infused with protective energy. In keeping with mystical cultural traditions, Malia believes jewelry transcends aesthetics and serves as power pieces to invoke the wearers intentions. You can follow her on Instagram and check out her shop for other pieces not being carried by Wild Poppy Goods

Wild Poppy Goods: Just In (and Some Real Talk)

As time goes on, more new (as opposed to vintage) things keep trickling into the shop and I'm loving the path we're on with Wild Poppy Goods. Vintage will always be my first love, and every aspect of it is still very much me. There is no better feeling than scoring a beautiful kilim rug at a flea market, or finding that perfect handmade mug at a random thrift store on the outskirts of town. On top of that joy is giving that old item new life by finding it a new home. I love that; items should be passed on to tell new stories. This love of well-made items crafted with meaning and purpose has led me to discover so many great new makers, designers, and artists whom I love to support. I'm thrilled to be carrying items in my shop made by people (many local) who are driven by the passion of their work. 

So, let's talk about running a small business that is evolving. Is it difficult? Yes. Between trying to balance finances, working from a very small home, and questioning if my customers are even liking the route we're on. So far, I've had a great response to the new look and I thank each and every one of you for making it possible. No, seriously. U rock my world. It's so nice to have support. About once a week I have a meltdown where I hate everything I put out there and I feel like I'm not living up to my standard. I compare myself to huge brands that we're once where Wild Poppy is today. It's silly, but I still do it. I'm then reminded though, by my very patient guy, that it is growing and evolving every day and that's all that matters. Growth. 

So with that being said, here are a few thing things! If you get a chance, give me some feedback. I'd love to hear what you'd like to see more of in the shop. 

          The prettiest pitcher which has an organic, natural feel. I love that it isn't perfect. 

    Right: Turkish Pillow, handmade by Turkish artisans who use old remnants of washed kilim rugs and sew on a cotton back to create these pillows. Left: The cutest pinch pots around. Imagine how cute a little air plant would look in these! 

Diggin' these eyeglass cases made by Fitzy Designs. They are beautiful and yet they still get the job done of protecting your pretty sunnies. 

Collaboration: Garnett Jewelry / Wild Poppy Goods

The name of my blog, A Wild Poppy, was influenced by the wild and untamed nature of California. The state I will always call home. Inspired by the idea behind A Wild Poppy, Garnett Jewelry created a special edition bracelet engraved with the word wild. This brass bracelet is a wardrobe staple and is perfect for daily wear.
