I often make new lists of fair items to share here in my own quest for replacements. The fair intimates post was no different. I've been on the hunt for replacements in this department for a while. As with most things fair, fair intimates are a bit pricey...no packs of 6 for $10. This need has been on my mind for quite a while now, but I don't want to spend a whole lot all at once...so I finally decided to purchase just one now. Over time I can build my collection.
I love that Pansy makes their pieces in the California out of USA grown, organic cotton. Such a little statement with such a huge impact! I already own one pair of Pansy, so I know the sizing. The shape is just what I'm looking for... + this color, I mean...sunshine!
I know that I love Jenny Pennywood towels. Her prints are my favorites + anything else would (to me) just feel like settling. Towels make a statement in my minimal kitchen, so I like what I like. I love supporting Jen Garrido's creative work as a maker + artist, so adding another one of her towels to my little collection creates no guilt.
Just like supporting local, organic growers when buying our food at the farmer's market... supporting independent makers is a great way to ensure that our dollars are supporting people doing good work + local economies...rather than supporting faceless corporations. Every dollar is a vote...and I vote for organic cotton, fair wages, creativity, and independent thought.
