Shawl for Fall Y’all
It’s always nice to have something extra pretty to have on hand for a cool evening. Isn’t it gorgeous?
It can be worn as a shawl or a scarf. This shawl was crocheted by Birute, a lovely lady who loves to knit and crochet.
The two-piece wooden shawl pin by Bob Wessel adds an interesting and functional accent. Bob has made several different styles of shawl pins for Angie’s Originals.
The glass necklace and earrings were made by Calypso Chile artisan group. I am pleased that my little boutique in tiny little Metropolis, Illinois is a place where works by local artists and fair trade artists from around the world can be displayed together.
Calypso Chile is a family owned business that operates from the family home. Marcela Cofre and her husband supported their family by making women’s shoes until 1994. When the market for shoes dropped dramatically, Marcela found a particular talent for glass making, building a sustainable business to support her family and others she has trained.
