Sometimes I think about opening a brick and mortar shop. A big warehousy-type building with soaring ceilings, worn wood floors and white walls. It would highlight cute home goods that I could arrange and rearrange every day, a coffee shop (because shopping is always better with an extra hot latte), fresh flowers and plants and space to host classes and gatherings. I mean, how dreamy does that sound?!
In the meantime, we’re starting with an online house + home shop we call JDC GOODS.
The shop opened just before Christmas last year and has been such a fun experiment in sourcing products, photographing, playing stylist and watching our wonderful customers enjoy their purchases.
My criteria when ordering inventory is pretty simple: if I want it for my house then it makes the cut. Which basically means, I have one of everything we sell in our house.
We just received a handful of new items that I can’t wait to show you:
You know I’m a bit smitten with pillows and throws. I love the simplicity of this navy cotton throw blanket and the extra detail of the pom tassels. The goat fur pillow is weird and wonderful and super soft. And that new enamel box makes a darling planter, but also great for storing first aid supplies, paperwork in the office, cookies – it will find many uses in our house.It’s likely that you’ve seen this big brass tray in photos on Instagram. It moves from place to place because it’s just so versatile. That pretty blanket is the cream version of the navy one above. My local market had potted ranunculus for sale and I couldn’t resist. I popped three of them into this great tin planter and it’s an instant Spring-pick-me-up. Bonus: the whole thing is less than the price of a cut bouquet and will last much longer. The mister is brand new to the shop. I use mine all the time for in-between waterings. Did you know that misting cut hydrangea petals will keep them fresh longer? It really works! For the office, I love the acrylic stapler and tape dispenser. They are so useful and pretty, too! Ribbon has been a long-time love of mine and I wanted to offer my favorite varieties in generous quantities in the shop. This velvet ribbon is so pretty and comes in three colors. Each of these items are so great for a bathroom. That little Mr + Mrs dish is very inexpensive and makes such a cute gift.
Of course there is so much more great stuff in the shop than shown here. I’m particularly taken with this quirky glass ball display and cement tissue holder (oh my goodness, we go through so much tissue in this house).
Come on over to the shop to take a peek and see what goodies you can add to your house!
