Our newest wallet is designed to neatly hold your stuff in a compact space. Mini wallet owners have long asked us for a wallet that can hold more, while staying small enough to fit in a a back pocket or small bag.
I put a couple of cards, folded cash, and receipt inside one of our inventory wallets to show you how the interior pockets function. Of course you can load each pocket with much more than is shown here. The wallet closes securely with two snaps.
Quad pocket wallet, $24. Available ready made and custom.
PS - This is a great design for minimalist dudes too.

We just got these sweet rings in stock and they fit perfectly into this walnut Mancala game board that I thrifted awhile back. Priced at only $3 apiece, they are designed to stack in endless combinations on your finger.
I took this picture using Instagram, the popular iPhone app that just debuted for Android. I like the fact that the quirky contrast elevates the shot into something a bit more interesting.
I'm not sure how much I'll use the upload function. I'm still loyal to Filckr. If you're on either, follow me! My handle is LauraBeeSeattle.

The gray and brown version of this ribbon has been so popular that I decided to add this spring green version to our repertoire. Today I made three wristlets and three wallets using the ribbon. I just couldn't resist seeing in on a Laura Bee product.
As I made these items, I couldn't help but think how lucky and happy I am to get to make stuff for a living.

There's a magical, fairytale quality to this ornate locket.
To me, it looks like it belonged to an eccentric character in a Victorian novel. Perhaps its wearer possessed magical powers.
Hummingbird locket by Sweet Romance. Crafted in California with enamel and glass pearl details. $64.
