Soo whats been going on....
well some of you already know about this exciting news! I am finally opening my own Brick and mortar store! I am so excited and stressed, it's like having another kid! Yikes!
So most of my time as of late has gone to getting the store ready to open in August, and filling ity-bity bag orders. My life has been a little crazy (but crazy kind of good). The shops name will BENTO. Why "BENTO" you say? Well I think the definition is perfect!
(Bento: is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables as a side dish. Containers range from disposable mass produced to hand crafted lacquerware.)
My shop will be a retail boutique (this is the takeout) with an assortment of different clothing, accessories and home goods for Men and Women (rice, meat,and veggie) made by up and coming designers and craftsman ( hand crafted goodness). All of this Will be available in my shop or Bento box for the sake of the name :)

Soon I will be launching a blog with pics and updates on the new shop! So stay tuned my lovelies!

I wish I lived in Pennsylvania to see the new Bento store. Alas, I will have to be content to have a little part of me there. I'm really happy to have a range of my Australian woolen fingerless mittens in store at Bento. :-) Thanks Lisa!
