Are you prepared to fall in deep, deep, love with some of our newest product?? I am 110% IN LOVE with Meri Meri. Everything is bright, happy, and oh so full of life! Part of what makes me love them so much is the story of how they started. Since they tell it so much better than I could, here it is in their words:
“In 1985, Meredithe (whose childhood nickname was Meri Meri) was sitting at her kitchen table with some scissors and pens, and a BIG pot of glitter. Our first cards were made that way. The magic began, local stationery stores in Los Angeles loved those cards and asked for more. One kitchen table and one pair of scissors wasn’t enough. We needed lots of kitchen tables and an ENORMOUS pot of glitter. We don’t design on kitchen tables anymore. We now work in studios in a 400-year-old building, overlooking an ancient churchyard in a little town called Cheltenham, 1 hour west of London, England. These days Meredithe heads a studio of twenty designers and artworkers and Meri Meri products are sold all over the world. Life is a little busier than it used to be. We’re working on lots of new projects, from our traditional cards and invitations, bakeware, gifts, party-ware and so much more!”
Isn’t that so enchanting? I definitely think so! I won’t bore you with more words; let’s get to the goods. Say HELLOOOO to our new Meri Meri stock!
These days, life really is not complete without a good bunting and tassel garland in your life. Whether it is permanently hung in your child’s room as part of their bedroom style, or something you pull out just for parties and events! Meri Meri has done it right with these two styles; tassels for a bit more playful flair, and the straight-edged bunting to clean up the edges!
Every room needs finishing touches, rrrright?! RIGHT! Those hangers are killing me. Imagine a cute little girls tutu on the unicorn, or a little dude’s blessing or baptism outfit on the giraffe! OHH MYYY!! Annnd moving on, simple frames are my jam. A little bit of pretty wood with something in between, yes please! Think of all the adorable child art you can hang in one of those! Oh wait, remember that corner in the room that just looks empty? Neon tassel baskets to the rescue! Fill it with swaddles, toys, books, etc. I want them all!
Knit dolls are ALL. THE. RAGE. Meri Meri knew you would want one for your kiddo so…just go ahead and fall in love with these and then try to pick just one!
Okay mamas, you know you need one of these things either sitting in the crib or on the rocking chair! VELVET is so, so soft, so your kiddo will love to snuggle with them as they grow! Wouldn’t they be a sweet little gift for someone you know needing a finishing touch for their nursery? I know I would love it!
Jewelry?! Yeah, that is right! Use it for you or your kiddos. Meri Meri hits bright and fun on the nose with these pieces. Glitz and glam with a bit of sophistication. It doesn’t get sweeter! My little gal is obsessed with anything that has fish involved, so looks like I will be snagging a sea creatures necklace ASAP!
I know what you’re thinking. What on earth would I do with pins? Really, the sky is the limit here my friends! Need to spruce up a bag? Give that neutral-colored blouse or sweater a little extra va-va-voom?Your pre-teens juuuust might be pleased with you for a few minutes if you show up with emoji pins right? Add them to the bill of a hat perhaps! Truly, you will find more than plenty of places to pop these little diddys onto!
Are you a fan yet?? Of course I am. But we are talking about you right now! If you need even a teensy bit of convincing (all the sparkle and shine pretty much convinced me), you better come in to the store and see for yourself! Meredithe definitely started something beautiful with her scissors and glitter all those years ago. WE LOVE YOU MERI MERI!
