Not Your Grandmother's Jewelry

We are obsessed with these new little trinkets from Grandmother's Buttons, a retro-chic jewelry store based in St. Francisville, Louisiana. Doesn't that sound like such a magical place? I'm sure it's filled with former-plantation B&Bs with low hanging willow trees that catch the glittering sunlight through their leaves (it is, I Google imaged it...HELLA willow trees).

Designer Susan Davis was originally inspired by her own grandmother's button collection, and upon discovering said collection decided to make what would later become her own jewelry line. Years later, Susan is still traveling the world and collecting antique buttons for her bangin' earrings. Here are some gems that are our current faves:

All of these beauties range in price from $22.50-$28.50, aka so affordable you gotta treat yo' self. Or treat yo' honey. Not that you need a reminder, but V Day is only three weeks away!

Cupid is Creepin'

It's never too early to start shopping for the perfect Valentine's Day gift for your main squeeze! It's just over four weeks until either the most romantic evening of your life, or an evening where you have Pizza Hut delivered to your dorm while you hate-watch Love Actually (never happened). 

We're so excited about all of the new, adorable (and affordable) red, romantic jewelery arriving in the store every day. For the next few weeks, we'll be updating on everything we're getting in to give you ideas for your boo. We don't want you sweating it out at the last minute and ending up with a sub-par gift that makes your girlfriend question your entire relationship and call in to a radio show to talk about it (really did happen--don't be that guy).

Here's what we're loving so far:

Aardvark: $18.50 (local) | Gold chains: $38.50 | Hearts with words: $24.50 (local) | Locket: $24.50 Heart Locket: $24.50

Rose earrings: $24.50 | Rose Locket: $24.50 (local)

Magnifying Glass Necklace: $24.50 | Hourglass Necklace: $24.50 | Heart Locket: $32.50

Cast Iron Hearts: $6.50

Cast Iron Hearts: $6.50

More to come! Cupid (or just a regular flying dwarf) will continue to deliver pretty trinkets here at ZimZim.

Winter Warmers

It's really starting to feel like winter here in Portland, and ZimZim has plenty of ideas on how to stay warm whilst sporting outerwear featuring your favorite animals. Be it cats, dogs or woodland creatures, we've got it all.

It really doesn't get any cattier than this: MEOW, indeed! Rock this full set with our cat ear hat and be the crazy cat lady you know you are! Fingerless gloves read "MEOW" on one side and have a heart and cat face on the other! They're purrrfectly cat-tastic.

Other options include squirrel, owl and bird scarves that will keep that neck nice 'n toasty. We love the alpine theme of these guys and think they'd look extra spiffy up at Timberline Lodge with a steaming cup of cocoa. Come get your favorite while they're still here!

P.S. All of our awesome Christmas items are now 50% off! Stock up for next year and get way ahead of the game.
