Hey, it's one of those flat necklaces!

You've seen them in all the editorial press. From the front they look like they weigh sixty pounds.
From the side, they are as slim as a sheet of paper.

We believe we have found the perfect version of this season's necklace. Impressive without overpowering. Stopping just this side of gaudy. And a price that says " Ha! I can afford to love you for only a season if I so choose."
But trust us. You'll choose otherwise.

As the temperature drops, everyone starts eyeing the knits. Big, chunky scarves that seemed outrageous in September seem just right in December. That fur lined ear flap hat tried on for laughs a month ago is haunting your dreams as you shiver in your bed.
Cable knit arm warmers and cashmere pop-top gloves. Elbow length fingerless gloves and fleece lined velvet embroidered mittens.
What was pure fancy before is now beautiful function.
Time to indulge your needs. And those of others, too.
(It is the holidays, after all.)

The Fini/Shine holiday party was a smash!

Everyone had a great time at the first annual Fini/Shine in the market salon party.

There were lots of yummy holiday beverages served that night.Yummy. Lots.

Questions were posed.Some were answered .Some were not.

Heads were rested on shoulders while eyebrows were raised.
But mostly, a wonderful time was had by all!

Pop surrealist boxes

Big eyed girls with large heads and tiny bodies. Cats wearing crowns. Birds wearing flap eared caps. Lambs peeking lazily into frame wearing big blue bows around their necks.

Welcome to the world of Classic Hardware Surrealist pop enamel boxes.

Tiny ones for your meds. Medium for your vitamins. One for your cards. A large one to use as a wallet.
Kooky enough for your cat loving Aunt. Creepy enough for your sullen Goth Niece.
Just peculiar enough to appeal to almost everyone on your list.
