Ashley Adores’ Favorite Things: Market Colors Polished Medallion Clutch

November 11, 2014

I see your true colors shining through, Market Colors, and that’s why I love what you’re doing. I recently got acquainted with the online store and nonprofit, and am glad to have done so. Market Colors makes a “handmade impact” by collaborating with craftsmen across Africa and selling their amazing products to people around the world.

This is what founder Lizzie Randazzo had to say about how Market Colors came to be: “God called me to this type of ministry over several visits to Africa. I spent days with widows anxious over whether they could give their kids food that day because they hadn’t sold many of their handmade products at the market. I don’t say that to pull at your heartstrings, but because it’s the truth. Together, we can change that — not for everyone in Africa, but for many.”

There were many items that struck my fancy while perusing the website, but none quite like the Polished Medallion Clutch, from Market Colors‘ Winter 2014 Collection.

Thrifted Thursday: (Window Shopping) Antiques from Grandma Darlings Antique Mall, Signal Hill

February 27, 2014

There are a bunch of antique shops in Long Beach and neighboring Signal Hill that I’ve been wanting to check out. I visited Grandma Darlings Antique mall a few weeks ago in search of a reasonably priced ceramic jar, which I ended up personalizing into a Blessings Jar that I ultimately included in my Two-Year Blogiversary Giveaway. These are just a few of the many treats that I saw while there. Seriously, I got lost inside a couple of times.
