Shopping Gourmand: Linens

Love to discover new gadgets, handcrafted creations or one-in-a-million objects but no time to browse for hours? Shopping Gourmand is for you!

Because of the great response I had with last week’s Shopping Gourmand, I’ve decided to post weekly until the end of the year! I hope this post series will help you find original, inspiring and affordable gifts.

Note: I am not making a dime presenting you these finds. I just think great indie shops and artisans deserve to be talked about. And I love to get an excuse to shop!

LINENS

An entire room can be brightened up by the addition of colorful linens. Here are eye-catching accessories that you will undoubtedly want to add to your wish list.

  1. Linens can be as important as the meal itself. Don't get me wrong: A nice rustic, exposed wood can be more beautiful than the finest, crispest linen…but it's the spirit, not the letter that matters here. It's about contributing something to the experience of the meal itself, which is part of what I also explore on my blog, http://gluttonforreward.blogspot.com.

    Cheers!
