If you're getting together your list of presents to buy for Christmas, check out this year's Holiday Gift Guide. We've compiled a list of our favorite gifts to give this year! From pretty jewelry to handwoven scarves, you’re sure to love them all. Plus, when you give our products as gifts, you also get to tell the fun story that goes with it! Shopping with us means that you’re supporting a locally owned small business and providing meaningful work for people with disabilities. We work all through the year to make sure our artisans have the supports in place to make all of these amazing products with as much independence as possible. All of the proceeds from sales goes back into our program to pay our Artisans and hourly wage, to buy more supplies and to support the program. Shop our Holiday Guide this year to give a gift that gives back!
- Our go-to gift for Teachers or to use in Secret Santa trades, are always a Christmas Ornaments. They’re cute, easy, fun and affordable! Each of our ornaments are made by hand by one of artisans, so they all have a bit of their own personality. From silly eyes and expressions to adorably lopsided hats –you’ll fall in love with their unique features.
- For the person who has everything or just doesn’t know what they want –it’s a scarf! Our scarves are handwoven in our studio in Alexandria on big floor looms. Hours and hours of hard work and dedication is poured into each and every scarf. Regardless of which pattern you choose, you’ll notice that they’re made so well that you’d think they came from a machine! Instead, you get to tell the great story of who made it and how your purchase provides someone with meaningful employment.
- If you’re looking for that perfect gift for that person who loves all things sparkly –don’t skip our jewelry collection this year! This year our artisans have made several pieces using our shimmery dichroic glass. With just a hint of sparkle these pieces will take you right through the holiday season and into the wintery months of the new year.

- For those who like to celebrate the Holiday season in shades of blue, our collection of fused glass tableware won’t let you down. Whether you choose the larger Lily Pad Dish or our Laroche Drape Bowl (which has festive hints of gold!) you’ll be able to snack in style. All of our glass is food and dishwasher safe. So use it every day for snacks or candy through the holiday season!
It’s always good to get your holiday shopping done early, especially this year! USPS is still a bit slow, and many companies are experiencing serious product shortages. Instead, shop with us and support a small business! Our artisans get SO excited when we sell out of the products they’ve made and love packing up and shipping all the sales that come in each day! This year, we recommend placing your order no later than December 16th, to make ensure that you have it in time for Christmas. Now, go ahead start your shopping spree!
