Nothing beats a day at the beach in the heart of summer. Michel Design Works recreated that relaxed, breezy feeling with their Beach Collection: lovely scents of marine notes and hints of bergamot, amber and watermelon. Fill your home with Beach and relive your favorite season all year long!

The Butter Paddle carries six different Michel Design Works fragrances in bar soaps, hand lotion, candles, foaming soap, room spray, etc. with coordinated paper products. Michel Design Works products are known for their quality and beautiful packaging.



Liquid Metal Collection is a timeless style. The fusion of high fashion and durability form a signature mesh that makes each piece as unique as the person who wears it… handmade one-of-a kind made in USA. Each creation reflects the distinctive ball chain appearance that is the trademark of Sergio Gutierrez’s.


So silky it feels like a cloud, the Swirlz Fur blanket is a great baby gift that everyone finds irresistible. Soft and sweet, just like a baby, the swirl patterned faux fur fabric is beautifully trimmed and lined with matching satin. Made by Maison Chic, Lillie the Lamb has many coordinating baby products, so you could put together a nice collection for your little one or for a baby shower gift.

 // Add to your collection, or give as a thoughtful remembrance. The Butter Paddle has a large selection of Miniature Boxes to choose from.

Bright and flavorful blueberries grown on the Clif Family Farm create a deliciously sweet Blueberry Jam. Use as a topping for waffles, paired with your favorite cheese or served over vanilla ice cream.

Clif Family Farm Peach Preserves is just like eating summer in a jar. It is perfect when spread on a piece of toast or just eaten straight out of the jar! Organically farmed.
