Thumbnail Thursday -- A Little Late

We have had SO many people who we want to feature here on The Downtown Boutique, and we can't fit them all in on Fridays...at least not before Christmas, so I wanted to throw in a few extra features and giveaways here and there. We're going to be featuring a "thumbnail sketch", as well as a mini-view (a shortened interview) with each artist.

Today we are featuring That Funky Boutique, and its owner, Angie.




That Funky Boutique's owner and designer, Angie Eisman is pleased to offer an eclectic array of products including unique children's wear and soft toys as well as accessories for the whole family. "I've recently launched a new line of winter hats that I'm thrilled about. Inspired by my kids' mismatching of their clothes, I've made these hats with a whimsical mismatched style. And blended in my green, eco-friendly sensibilities by making them with 100% recycled wool and cashmere!" Each hat is one of a kind and hand made with care in the western mountains of North Carolina.
Available at http://www.thatfunkyboutique.etsy.com
Wholesale inquiries welcome!

3 random facts about Angie.

1. I'm a homeschooling mom. A brand spankin' new one. I'll be honest—some days are a complete blur! Others a complete joy. During both types of days I'm constantly reminded just why I'm doing what I'm doing...more precious time together that I know I'll never regret.

2. My favorite artistic endeavors: illustration and wheel thrown pottery. Sadly I haven't found time for much of either lately. Soon. I hope. Very soon.

3. I love Greek food! olives, seafood, feta, bread. yum!

The Criss/Cross Applesauce top is so adorable - My grandaugher is going to turn 3 New Year's Eve. This would be so cute on her. Her "big" 4 year old sister is the pink, lacy "princess" She is the cute, bouncy "earthy" one.

Gotta be the DIY Sock Monkey Decoupage Jeans Kit. I may have to purchase this and make a pair for my sock-monkey-obsessed daughter. All her hats are great and I like that they are made of recycled materials.
