Sneak Peek

I've been trying to decide what to call my line of bags, that I designed for the shop. What do you think? Erin Austen Abbott for Amelia? Or simply just Amelia? I'm open to suggestions. 

There are five in the collection, but here is a sneak peek at the one bag in the line for kids. I love how classic it is and Tom Otis loves that he has a new place to stash toys. 

So mint

I'm so inspired by mint and white together. When I opened the shop five years, I knew that I wanted mint and white stripes in both my logo and on the walls of the shop. I haven't felt the need to change it since. Here are a few items found around the shop and an amazing vintage jeep that pulled up in front of the shop today. 

For the business cards, I had them printed through and the striped bags that I use are vintage candy shop bags. Old dead stock.

Shop Scenes

This sweet little vintage light makes the perfect shop fixture. I also love the texture of the imperfect wall behind the counter. Amelia is only 187 square feet but I certainly love it.
