Zodax “Marquesa” bowls have a shiny white interior, and matte white exterior decorated with black vertical lines for a tribal-inspired look.

The Zodax “Portofino” pedestal bowl, with its eye catching smooth glaze interior, is a stunning black accessory with a white vertical line design that is a must have.

The versatile platter can be used as part of a centerpiece, decor above a fireplace or on a mantle, or special entertaining serving piece.

The beautiful finishes in either contemporary color combination will complement any decor style. 


The award-winning MOVA® Globe is expertly crafted with a sophisticated motion mechanism, powered by ambient light, which drives the continuous rotation without any batteries or power cords.

In addition to the Antique Globe and the Blue Map Globe, see the new Earth with Clouds Globe at The Butter Paddle. This globe uses images taken from NASA for a direct look at our planet from space. Swirls of white clouds punctuate soothing green and blue colors. As the globe gently rotates, it creates an immersive visual experience.

Place them in light. Sit back. Watch them spin. Be impressed.



New pieces from Whitney in Sarasota at The Butter Paddle

Since the early 1970's John and Linda have been using the traditional methods of metalsmithing to present their own interpretations of objects of adornment. Whether it is a bold forged link necklace or an intricate pair of earrings, their work carries an integrity to the elements of design that the metals demand. Each piece made by hand in the USA.

New cookies at The Butter Paddle in two flavors: Little Belgium Original Speculoos, and Vanilla Speculoos. The Original are buttery, thin, crunchy, not too sweet and flavored with dark brown sugar and nine spices. The Vanilla are just as crunchy and buttery, but combines light brown sugar with hints of vanilla. Great with tea, dipped in a glass of milk, or just on their own. Packaged in grab and go packs of four cookies.
