Hello from Owasso, Oklahoma! It smells like grass here.
Today my lofty goal was to finally make it to Dwelling Spaces, the newish hipster design store in downtown Tulsa that I’ve been hearing so much about on my past couple of trips here. I had been meaning to visit for some time now, and I’m glad I did! It was even better than I had imagined, nicely stocked with locally made goods, designer toys, kitchen-y things, etc.
I bought up an armful of goodies for New York friends, and a couple things for myself, including this lovely tote by felix & jayne, locally made by Cristi Jayne Martin:
I’m what I call a “loosely organized” knitter, which means that I threw a couple balls of yarn in my suitcase for my trip here. So I’m excited to have a shiny newly-made-from-vintage-fabrics bag to carry around. I love the detailed stitching of it too:
felix & jayne goods appear to be only available in Oklahoma at this time, but Cristi has an Etsy shop set up, so perhaps people outside of the area will be able to nab her handmade bags and other nice things sometime soon. I just emailed her to find out if she has plans for it.
At this time, Dwelling Spaces has an online shop set up with a small selection of “Tulsa”-branded goods. Also hoping they add to it soon!
