striped tote $19.99  $10

Carries a lot of stuff.  A LOT!  At $10 you can’t go wrong. It has a real bohemian feel to this everyday tote.

t-shirts $28 $10

We have a variety of styles and limited sizes left. This is probably my favourite from our friends over at Good & Fair.  It’s seriously a great great deal at $10 for a fair trade organic t-shirt.  Super super soft and a lighter weight cotton for those hot summer days.

Goody Bags pic c/o People Tree

Y’all know I love People Tree in the UK.  They have a great summer sale as well and I always love their goody bags.  I’m super tempted to get their kids goody bags because it looks like once it’s gone, it’s gone!  Goody bags will have like over £100 worth of clothing but for a fraction of the price.  I have gotten one in the past and scored!  You choose your size and then the put together a few lovelies for you.  A great great deal.  Also for US and Canada — they are offering £5 shipping for shipments over £50!

Happy Friday! Happy Shopping! We’re offering free shipping for a limited time on all our products so great time to take advantage.  Follow us on facebook, G+ or twitter to get the latest and greatest from us.  We also instagram as well so you can find us where we are!

 

 

Friday Finds: Shorts!

Friday finds, on a Saturday. I’m in vacation mode and I don’t have my computer with me so it’s bloggins on the fly — and I’m also taking care of 3 kiddos too. We are still having some great warm weather here in Seattle (actually I’m in Vancouver but it’s relatively the same!) and I found some cute shorts from One Mango Tree:

Cute eh?  They are on sale from 36 to 21.60.  Act now! They’re a cool fair trade fashion line and have great colour and patterns to their dresses and tops.

I also came across some usa made men’s shorts which are great for the outdoor dude:

$79

From a Colorado based company called Topo Designs. Nice clean simple lines. This one is a cotton/nylon blend so it probably dries quickly. Good length for men. All their stuff is made in the USA.  That’s vey cool indeed.  This kind of wear and look should be made in Colorado, right? I love all their backpacks and bags. It had me thinking about a backpack that I used to carry in my elementary and high school years. It was the same brand over the years because it was such high quality and at the time made in Japan.  When I saw their stuff, it reminded me of my school back pack I carried.

For the kiddos, I would check out Winter Water Factory for short pants.  I love their stuff. Meira has a couple of dresses from them.  Fun colours and clothes that are hip but they still look like a kid, you know?  I love clothes that are comfortable for play for a kid, stylish but not overly grown up. They are having a Fourth of July sale so hurry, it ends tomorrow!

Friday Finds: What We Wore

I’m going to try to post a Friday finds, things we find on the internet that are locally made or made with a fair wage.  I know that it can be quite a task to search for stylish fun fashion fun food, home accessories and so forth.  Since I’m doing this with our family, I thought I would share some of the things we have found on the interweb.

American Apparel red hoodie and hand-me down second hand pants. I like getting their kids stuff for basics.  They do get a lot of controversy for their racy ads but I like the fact that it’s American made clothing.

ibex-1Ibex jacket.  They specialize in Merino wool wear.  This jacket uses New Zealand wool and it’s made in the USA.  I spoke to the nice shop folks at the store here in Seattle and they are aiming to have most of their clothing made in the USA by 2015. T’s new favourite jacket. Super lightweight but also very warm.  Great for this Pacific Northwest weather. This jacket is available for sale in the wintertime.  It does have a hefty price tag at $325 because it is using fine merino wool material.

1. Birks – I live in these all summer long. Made in Germany. A pair lasts at least 5 years. I still have a pair of clogs from my Toronto days which is now 13 years ago.  I love them!

2. Hudson jeans – I looked through all the labels of jeans for T at Nordstrom rack and I found these cool jeans that are made in the USA with imported European fabric. I love the name of this style which is called “Dandy Slouchy Straight”.  Great relaxed fit for men but not overly loose.  It looks awesome on my 5 ft 11 ish guy.

Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy your weekend!
