ink & peat is thrilled to introduce Blackbird's sophisticated new line of incense and perfumes into our own collection of fragrances! The long beloved Seattle-based brand recently launched their own apothecary line and we're loving their array of signature dark notes. Inspired by the tundra, their Hibernus incense carries notes of birch, honey, and amber. The perfumes smell amazing, too! Other scents include tinderbox, marzipan, frankincense, precious resins, spice, and cedar - that's enough to keep us warm all winter!

Last week, ink & peat received a big box of lavender-kissed goodies from organic farm, Los Poblanos, out of Albuquerque, New Mexico. It's no wonder these yummy salves and soaps have been flying off the shelves! Following "farm to table-like" methods, each product is crafted on site where the lavender is harvested, then treated with a "steam distillation process right on the farm to extract the essential oil and ensure absolute purity." Natural, soothing, and reminiscent of the farms and fields of the Southwest, Los Poblanos is our new favorite in body care!
In addition to all the lavender goodness, one of the customer favs is The Man Bar! Rich with sage and sandalwood, it is amazing!
And perfect for the season is the Pinon bar - full of juniper berry and nutmeg, just right.
Products soon to be in our web shop here. All photos found here.
How grand it is to work at ink & peat - a shop that carries exquisite jewelry by Avindy! I was first introduced to Avindy a few years ago as a jewelry buyer at a boutique in Colorado. We sold gobs of it to our customers and it was nearly impossible not to buy a piece for myself whenever there was occassion to! Designed by mother-daughter duo, Avril and Cindy, Avindy jewelry is inspired by "a reverance to years of world travel and a philosophy built on the beauty of handmade craftsmanship." Beautiful indeed! These ladies aren't afraid to string a silver chain with hundreds of shimmering precious stones or pack solid gold into their heirloom-inspired pendants. Check out the pretty photos!
Avindy jewelry is designed and handcrafted in Atlanta, Georgia.
With Christmas just one week away, ink & peat is bright with an array of splendid gift ideas! Whether you're in the neighborhood to shop or just passing through, stop in to enjoy our lovely collection of goods and pick something out for everyone on your list! In the meantime, take a peek at a few of our shop favorites - our holiday gift guide is here!
These sweet and spicy holiday blends from Bellocq Tea are so tasty, we could drink them all year, but a nice warm cup on a winter's night makes the best gift!
This Coral & Tusk embroidered illustration goes beyond cozy (and darling) with their bunny-in-a-sweater framed artwork!
tatine's garden and forest scented candles are seriously good. Not only do they perfectly capture all the fragrant notes of a woodsy forest, but each candle is mixed and poured by hand in small batches. Find it here!
We give three cheers for the Blue Chair Jam cookbook! It makes a lovely gift - especially when paired with a jar of seasonal jam from your local farmer's market! See more about Blue Chair Jam here.
Children (and adults!) love the wonderful details that make this plush bambi snuggle from Danish toy company, Maileg, extra sweet - the faux fur collar, rosy cheeks, and her one-eye-awake, one-eye-asleep ... lovely!
Soap by Saipua is a staple at ink & peat! Made from the finest, most natural ingredients, our collection of Saipua soaps make a beautiful stocking stuffer! Find it here!
These handcrafted, ceramic vessels from Soda by Amy are both lovely and useful. Makes a good tea cup, nook for an airplant, or a handy pencil holder. Check out our collection at the shop or see more here!
Fine art and sophistication go hand and hand in this very giftable book, full of illustrated splendor by iconic artist, Maria Kalman.
We've got jewlery galore ... and we just recieved a new batch of these gorgeous sterling silver and gemstone earrings from the Heirloom collection by Jane Diaz!
Sometimes the best gifts come in small packages! This photo doesn't do justice to how delicious this chocolate bar by Sweeteeth really is, but maybe words can - it's three chambers of dark chocolate filled with sweet liquid caramel, finished with flaked sea salt, and made by chocolate artisans from South Carolina. Absolute yumminess. Stock up here!
Hope you've enjoyed our holiday gift guide! Wishing all of you a happy holiday from everyone here at ink & peat!
All of us gals here at ink & peat have been in a state of dreamy pastille bliss with the arrival of our lovely new assortment of artisan confectioneries!

We love the idea of filling antique candy tins with our tasty treats as festive offerings for the upcoming holidays!
We only get these Provenceal beauties once a year! Check out our lavender honey drops from The French Farm!
