Peg and Awl Book Necklaces

I’ve had my eye on Peg and Awl book necklaces and beautiful handmade goods for years.  I am so excited to now carry a gorgeous selection of their ever-popular book necklaces and small Chalk Tablets.

I first came across their artistry on the Anthropologie website – selling an incredible multi-strand book necklace.  I was smitten.  However, my budget did not allow for such a sweet treat.  Fortunately, I found, they have perfect little single book necklaces.  Even better – their goods are handmade in Philly.  (Local Love!)

For this holiday season, I wanted to stock the shop with some of my favorite gift items.  Their necklaces were unquestionably a good match.  The books come in small, medium, and large and are made with recycled materials – from old leather sofas and deer hide to the more secretive “a mysterious arrival.”

I am so pleased to stock these incredible pieces from the well-respected Philadelphia duo – Peg and Awl.  Now in the shop – just in time for the holiday season.  (We ship too!)
