suggest a retailer for the cozy/cuff


Is there a retailer in your area that would be a good fit for the cozy/cuff?  I'm looking for coffee shops, design stores, indie boutiques, or any other store that might carry the cozy/cuff.

If you've got a suggestion, please leave a comment with:
-the name of the store
-store address (at least city and state)
-web site (if they've got one)
-any other info about the store

If you don't want to leave the info in the comments, you can always email me at meauman(at)yahoo(dot)com.



And in case you really need a reason to suggest a retailer, I'll choose one lucky commenter (or emailer) on April 24 to receive a cozy/cuff of their very own!

There's a store in Portland, Maine near where I live called Ferdinand that sells a lot of awesome stuff by independent designers... it might be worth a shot.

Daytrip Society (in Kennebunkport, Maine) also may be a good spot (they actually talk on their website about how they're always looking for new designers)

Yep. PopDeluxe on State Street in Madison, Wisconsin. Aesthetic is perfect for their niche. http://www.popdeluxe.net/

Try Brumley Gardens in Dallas, TX. They are always looking for new botanical inspired jewelry and art. The owner, Chris Brumley has an eye for the unique and will appreciate your style. Currently his website is getting revamped, but you can check it out at http://www.BrumleyGardens.com. The address is 10540 Church Rd, Dallas, TX‎ - (214) 343-4900‎. I currently design for him. I hope this helps!

I don't know if you're into this idea, but there's a couple high-end kitchen stores here in brooklyn that I could imagine carrying your cozy/cuffs:

Whisk: http://www.whisknyc.com/
Brooklyn Kitchen: http://www.thebrooklynkitchen.com/home/

Might be another niche for them?

Alterra Coffee is a hugely popular chain here in Milwaukee, WI: http://alterracoffeepro.com/
They're into unique and interesting things.

You could also try the Milwaukee Art Museum - I'm constantly finding cool stuff in their gift shop:

Then again, I suppose any art museum could possibly be a good lead in that respect.

Also Toy Joy in Austin, TX is a funky shop with all sorts of clever or funny items and jewelry.

I suggest Design Torget in Sweden.

http://www.designtorget.se/designtorget/en/

It's the biggest independent designer/artist selling place in Sweden. It has a number of shops in all the major cities. And it's the fist place to shop for quirky cool different presents for the under 40 crowds.

I love it, eventhought I'm not often able to go as I live in London.

They only sell independent designer/maker/artist things, but a large range of things, jewellery, homeware, decorations, books and some furtniture.
I think the cuff would work real well, as would your jewellery
