Folks, we’ve officially crossed the sixty maker mark… that’s right: Threefold Gifts now carries handmade goods from over sixty American makers. We’re wildly excited to share news that we’re always growing the Threefold Gifts family of makers, and this month is no different. We’ve had three new makers join the shop recently, and we can't wait for you to meet them. Before you shop their wares, learn a bit about the people behind the goods.
These Things aims to bring cute, humorous, and kitschy items into your life. It's run by Amy K Nalley out of her home studio in Houston, TX. Started in Denton, TX in 2010, it didn’t really get going until 2014 when Amy was laid off from her part-time office job. With encouragement and support from her partner she threw everything she had into These Things and has been creating full-time ever since. These Things is now in brick & mortar shops around the US and can be found popping up at various markets and conventions around Texas.
Kerie was an artistically driven kid growing up in a suburb of Cleveland. The moment she took her first ceramic class she was in love and couldn't put down the stuff. After receiving a BFA in ceramics and a minor in textiles from Kent State University in 2015, Kerie participated in a year long residency in Cincinnati, Ohio where she explored why she makes pottery and who she makes it for. After moving back to Cleveland she jumped right back into a studio practice by doing a work trade with a local potter, where she still works today.
Unibrow Society is a collaboration between Sara Bicknell and Kathleen Marcotte. They’ve united under one brow to create thoughtful, empowering, cute, fun, illustrated goods to brighten your day. They believe in laughter, in play, and embracing all the awkward, weird parts of ourselves that make us human. Unibrow Society follows one code: be kind, be cool, embrace imperfection, and support one another. We’re all on this spinning rock flying through space together!
