little luxuries

Hi there!

This week, we have a special edition to share with you: our summer employees' favorite products! If you have wanted to get to know some of our hard workers this year or learn more about select products, keep reading (this is the blog for you)!

To start us off, Emily (I'm sure a familiar face to many of you), our wonderful store manager from St. Ignace, MI., chose to feature our perfume line, Lollia. Here's what she had to say: 

"The reason I love this line of perfumes is because you can wear your favorite scent all day and it lasts without needing to reapply often. 'In Love' is the scent that I chose. The reason I think it's an overall good fit for Little Luxuries is because it aims towards every age group, not only with the packaging, but also with each scent-they both represent each individual who is buying it. Plus the packaging is so pretty and I love that the line is made right in the USA!"  

Lexy, our retail associate from Harbor Springs, MI., chose to feature our Shower Therapy bombs-yes, shower bombs do exist! Here's what she had to say: 

"These bombs definitely fill up your whole shower with its aroma! Each bomb lasts about four showers, but make sure to set it on a ledge or shelf-too much exposure to water makes the bomb disintegrate quickly. I have used both the Eucalyptus and Lemongrass bombs. The Eucalyptus one is very strong but by the end of the shower, I felt like I could breathe better-it was definitely a stress reliever. The Lemongrass one also smelled so good and fresh! I'm excited to try more scents!"

Annie, our retail associate from Rochester, MI., chose to feature 'The Home T' mug that reads "I Woke Up Happy". Here's what she had to say:

"I love my Home T mug because of its sweet and comforting quote on the front. It reminds me each morning to start the day off with a positive attitude while sipping on my warm coffee. These mugs are also great because they are an affordable price, can be easily washed in the dishwasher, and is a modest size, making sure your coffee doesn't get too cold before you can drink it! Also, 10% of The Home T's profits are donated to multiple sclerosis research." 

 

Kimmy, our retail associate from Clarkston, MI., chose to feature the Island Girl of Mackinac T-Shirt from our Island Girl collection. Here's what she had to say: 

"I would highly recommend this t-shirt because of its cozy feel and I love the cut of it-I think it flatters all body types of women. I also love the logo that is on it because it really encompasses the idea of being on the island. As an island girl, this is my first time here, and I have learned to truly embrace living on the island in a carefree way, just like the logo suggests!"

Leigh (left) and Kathleen (right), retail associates and cousins from Nashville, TN., chose to feature our bags of Mackinac Granola (Organic) from our food collection. Here's what they had to say:  

Leigh- "This organic granola is deliciously sweet with the dried fruit that it includes. It's good to pair with a bowl of yogurt or just to eat by the handful. Coming up with my family from Nashville every summer, this granola always reminds me of big family breakfasts on the island!" 

Kathleen- "I love the mix of sweet and salty-the sweet oat flavor and the salty pistachio and pumpkin seeds. The pecans in the granola definitely bring me back to my Southern roots. Also my mom and aunts love to make homemade granola, so trying this Mackinac Granola is great to bring home to my family!"

Bryanna, our retail associate from Imlay, MI., chose to feature our vintage silverware rings from our sister store, The Artists Market. Here's what she had to say: 

"I own a couple different pieces of jewelry from The Artists Market, but I love my two Vintage Silverware Rings because they add a vintage flare to any kind of outfit. It's such a timeless piece of jewelry, especially since it is authentic silverware from the 1900's. These rings are triple-plated with silver, and so far, I have had no problems with wear and tear or water exposure. Also, these are such a perfect, unique gift to give someone!"

As for me, Nicole, I chose to feature my Meanwhile Back on the Farm bag, also from our sister store, The Artists Market. It is made very well. The straps are real leather and get softer the more I use it. The interior of the bag has the cutest fabric! The bag doesn't show dirt. It's a great every day tote to carry a little bit of everything. I highly recommend Meanwhile Back on the Farm for any type of tote! 

Thanks for reading this week! I hope you learned a little bit more about our staff this summer and were able to add a few more items to your wish list. Our summer hours are 9:30am-10:00pm seven days a week, so be sure to stop in soon! Also, our online store can be found here if you're ready to get shopping!

 

Nicole,
