These pillows are amazing! My mom has the Canada one and I have been coveting it for a while now!

Catherine said...

I'm starting to see these all over, but it doesn't stop me from loving them... I want a bunch!

Julie said...

I love these pillows - especially the keys one! Where can I find???

Jeannine @ Small and Chic said...

A store in my town has had them for months...maybe over a year at this point. They aren't moving. :(

OMG, I adore them... I have to have the England & Paris ones for sure!

the city and state pillows are $150. how does that make you feel? good price point? they take 1 week to make and are sewn by hand. does that sell it?
(they really are super fun in person, esp. the miami one. i sort of want it although i have no conection whatsoever to miami!)

my mom gave me one of these pillows when i moved to massachusetts as a goodbye gift. i get so many compliments on it and so many people ask where they can get one. i also was given the same thing but in drinking glasses with martha's vineyard. love them! anyway, love your blog and i wish i lived nearby to come see your store (awesome that it's online now). in fact i have just started a blog myself but it's still a little rough :) thanks for the inspiration!

I blogged about these recently....and am now the proud owner of "Louisiana" and "Indiana!" They are true showstopper in our casual TV den. Super fun!

Julie said...

I'm going to need the Paris pillow...

I love unique craftsmanship and handmade items that can't be bought just anywhere... I'd totally make the purchase for $150.00, especially since they'd be in the middle of my living room! Then again, maybe I'm just an easy sell! :-)

I love them, but I'm not of the financial station that I can drop $150 on a single pillow, despite the hand-made factor! Maybe one day.

Kate said...

These are so cute -- but I agree with some of the other comments, I've seen them at gift shops before and they're always too expensive!

Which is too bad because I love them!

they are great but i see them everywhere and i mean EVERYWHERE. i think of your pillows as very different from everyone else

Caitlin said...

i love them but not sure I would pay $150 for a pillow that wasn't versatile enough to make it worth it. though they are certainly cute and I'm sure there are many people willing to pay that much!

Maybe you could carry the other less expensive products...the tea towels are also very cute!

The vintage ones you find on eBay, with a little wear and a little patina, are so wonderful. (I think of these as meant to be old, somehow.)

LOVE these! I've always wanted one.

Siiri said...

Love these! Our family has two of the Seattle ones and when guests come to town they always want to go buy one! Certainly a great souveneir (sp?), but also great if you're a hometown kinda gal!

Yes, I have NC and SC!

these sell like hotcakes. i live near greenbrier and gift shop there constantly running out of them.

Sarah Smile said...

they are so great! stinks about the price but if they are hand-stitched its makes sense.

Sarah said...

These are great! You used to be able to get them from the Sundance catalogue. I would love for you to get them so I could see them in person before buying.

Kristen said...

I have the England one! I found it at a thrift store for $5!! I didnt know they were expensive, I just thought it was a fun pillow..

Beth said...

I have the NY one. Love it. The price was a bit much but they are beautiful in person. The hand embroidery is amazing.
