Read all about it!

Face it. Your eyes have gone to hell. Squinting at the computer screen, the menu in a dimly lit restaurant, the price tag on that sweater you like....is this the shampoo or the conditioner?
Relax. This is not the signal of the beginning of the end. Your vision just needs a little boost to get things crisp and clear again.


And here at Fini we have the Holy Grail. Readers that do not make you look old.
Dozens of colors and styles, strengths starting at 1.25 and going to 3.0., suitable for men or women. $33.00. Your choice.

Dozens of customers have told me they have had their prescription lenses put into these frames. And why not? Go wild, get a pair for every room in the house.
Glasses never made anyone look older, just smarter.

Belt it out.

Pant waistlines are creeping up again to the strangest place- your actual waistline.

So long Muffin top, time to cinch it where it belongs. And why not do it with a belt that says you mean business?

Will belts out of Eugene Oregon fill the bill nicely. A range of colors and textures that will serve dozens of outfits, yet never be boring. The perfect width to fit almost all your loops, and well priced enough to keep your wallet from crying "Uncle"!


A belt cinched snugly around your waist feels like you're getting a hug all day long. When was the last time that happened?

Cold hands, warm heart.

One of our favorite things to give this Holiday season has to be Carolina Amatos' "Cold hands, Warm heart" gloves.

They come in the classic glove style, or the newer, pop-top format. These have a mitten cover that cleverly " pops over" a pair of fingerless gloves. Perfect for when you need to make a call or text a pal.

Made of pure lambswool and available in black with red embroidery, or gray with pink.

The perfect, unique "little something" for almost any female in your life. And coming in at $30.00 for the gloves and $35.00 for the pop-tops, these may be just the winners you have been looking for. Hands down.

I'll tumble for ya.

There is a lot of texture going around this season. Nubby knits, over sized herringbones, chunky wovens. It seems only natural that this would be the year leather got in on the action.

Heavy duty texture. Knobby, irregular, folded, pleated, creased leather.




We like to call it Elephant hide, but it is actually tumbled cowhide.



Thoughtful design and an" easy does it" approach on the hardware keeps these bags from feeling overwrought.
Slick finishes and shiny patents always have their place. But consider adding a gnarled, character driven bag to your collection. The time feels right, right now.

Fall 2010 Jeanine payer now in.

Words on jewelery. You think you have seen it. Think again. Most of the time what you see are pale comparisons to the original. And Jeanine Payer my friends, is the original.


Hand made pieces that are then hand engraved with choice pieces of poetry. Not stamped, not cast, but hand engraved. The result is something so finely crafted, so precise, so tiny, they literally take your breath away.

Custom work is available, so you can have a piece created with some poetry that is significant to you alone, making it truly one of a kind.
Sort of like you.

Japanese knit hats

It is officially cold enough for hats. Warm, thickly knit hats. We have a particular fondness for the one's designed by Toshi at River Up

Fine woven cashmere, chunky knit wools, all done with a funky twist.



These beauties always sell out before the deep chill of winter sets in.
Don't get left out in the cold.
