This season we have many wonderful new products to share with you! Below are a few of our favorites! We hope you can find your way into the store or our online shop so you can try them out yourself! 

Photographed above is an adorable women's t-shirt from Little Luxuries' very own brand, the Island Girl Collection. This soft and feminine top fits all shapes of bodies comfortably and aims to inspire each customer to embrace their inner-island self. If you ever need a second opinion on this top, feel free to ask any of our retail associates...you may see them choose to rock it at work as a fellow island girl themselves! 

This next product also comes from our brand, the Island Girl Collection, but instead of an item to wear alongside your girlfriends, this water bottle can tag alongside you wherever you may go this summer! From hiking to sunbathing to road trips to biking, the stainless steel and copper plated walls of this bottle promise to keep your hot beverages at a consistent temperature for 12 hours and your cold beverages at a consistent temperature for 24 hours! We love this 17 oz. tag along buddy!!

The beautifully dainty necklace shown above is part of our Juicy Christians jewelry collection, which is Michigan-made. The wide variety of necklaces that are offered all carry the same mission to help the owner see themselves as God sees them. From the encouraging words to the beautiful designs to the ever-inspiring bible verses found on each necklace, you will be sure to change your daily mindset from the moment you purchase one!   

Sweet and salty all in one! You can't ask for a more delicious treat than Kika's treats! These dark chocolate covered caramels are some of our staff's favorite treats to taste test! The added crunchy rice inside, these yummy bites will have you wanting more and more!
