my shopping philosophy: anything I need already exists and somewhere, someone has no longer found use for it. 

but...some things are better bought unused. these are those things. my favorite things, as well as some brands i love & trust. 

I challenge you to purchase these items from small, local shops, bookstores & co-ops when possible.  enjoy! 

I get my herbs in bulk from mountain rose herbs (based down the street from me, but available online) 
my favorites are:




hara the label
- ethical production, bamboo fabric, & natural dyes

thinx   (yes, really. and i love them)
