A few of my favorite things!

I’m going to post every hour today. Each post will be one of my favorite products still remaining in the shop.

First up, these porcelain loose leaf tea strainers! I looked all over the place to find handmade tea strainers made in the US and I didn’t have much luck. Though we typically carry domestic products, on occasion I’ll carry something from an artist from abroad, if it’s a product that really stands out. These human figure tea strainers are made in Latvia by Laima Ceramics and I was enamored the moment I saw them. We have three remaining. If you have a tea drinker in your life who would appreciate a gift like this, come snag one!

A thought: Mab Graves - Her Waifs and Strays Have you ever considered making tea strainers? I would LOVE to see that become a reality!
