New Item!

We've got so many great new items in the store, it was hard to choose one to feature on the blog (eventually we narrowed it down.)

We are proud to present some great items from Fondue Art and Design! It's a husband and wife team of artists that create decorative pieces with vintage wallpaper. The wallpaper ranges from the 1920's to the 1970's. In the boutique we've got some very whimsical lightswitch plates, magnets and tissue boxes.

So stop by and take a look at our Fondue Art and Design products as well as our other new items!
