While on a recent trip to Austin I stumbled upon Spartan, a gift shop owned by Currie Person, who worked in film production before opening her shop. Spartan is stocked with a well edited selection of home decor, jewelry, gifts for kids, gifts for him, all focusing on handmade. A few things that caught my eye: Jesse Kamm Organic Cotton Onsies, Wool Felted Balls and Bird Mobiles from Nepal, Raw Wood Clock by Stanley Ruiz. From Japan Postalco Pocket Notebooks, Colorful Lockets from Trois Petits Points in Paris, Glass Vases from Spain and a great selection of Handmade Wood Utensils.
Spartan has a great website but if you are in Austin make it a point to visit. But give yourself some time to browse the amazing selection and chat a bit with Currie about her new finds.
