It’s all about the mix.

 

Part treasure box, part art gallery, the Bobbie Medlin shop is a delight. French flea market finds, unique jewelry, sculpture, paintings, and even that “perfect gift” are waiting for you. We are also proud to be the Northwest retailer for the French ceramics company, Astier de Villatte.

If you, too, believe it’s all about the mix, come and visit. No matter your budget, we’ve got something for you. You’ll be glad to have us on your list of favorite shops.

Astier de villatte

Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli founded Astier de Villatte in 1996. Following the tradition of the great 18th century Parisian ceramic studios, they employ Tibetan artisans to create their charming, one-of-a-kind ceramics in black terracotta with a milky white glaze.

Lightweight and fragile-looking, the pieces are both strong and durable and wholly unique. They are now one of the last major studios in Paris keeping this tradition alive.

Alongside their ceramics, Astier de Villatte make scented hand care products, incense and candles. 

Our inventory is constantly refreshed. 

Special orders are encouraged.

SOUND UP! Judging by the gentle tink-tink-tink on the metal roof below my window, I think the rain will let up today.

I forgot to tell you…a new shipment of Mifuko totes arrived from Finland.

These totes are such a good value, and you look so smart carrying one.

I’ve had mine for three years and have used and abused it, and it still is as good as new. 

Upcycled, sustainable materials, and fair trade. Doesn’t get any better. Buy smart and you’ll thank yourself later.😉

Look what just arrived!! There has never been a more perfect time for this. My absolute favorite pendant of white onyx, ruby, and 18k gold. It is presented with a long cotton cord, but the bail is generous enough to accept nearly any chain you already have. It is 2 inches, top to bottom, not including bail. It is perfect.

White onyx is thought to bring about clarity and focus, a stone of potential.
 
Ruby is thought to be a stone of protection and fortune.

Gold metal represents abundance.

And, finally, the shape is the yoni, which is a symbol of feminine strength. 

Jewelry designer Lucine Almas works very closely with the best artisans in her beloved India and carefully, joyfully selects each stone. The excellence in workmanship is extraordinary.

Hurry! I only have two.
