Buyer's Notes: Complimentary Pairings

This week, I spotted a little sumthin' sumthin' at Jessica's Beetle and Bloom shop...

I love how Jessica packages her goodies in handmade boxes formed out of out of old books & paper. It's great to see how she's able to take her product concept - one of a kind originals made from recycled materials and flowers even further.

What I love most about her shop are the unexpected product pairings - some of her beautiful hairpins are paired with the perfect little ceramic pieces like the dish above and also here. It's an obvious fit considering her designs are floral in nature, but very unique in the way she offers her customers the opportunity to take home her complete vision. You know those moments where you're in a shop and you pick out the one thing that's not actually for sale? Don't you just hate that? Well that's what I love about these pairings. Problem solved.

What's your little sumthin' sumthin'?
