Parsimonia Handmade Holiday Market


Hello, my lovelies! It occurred to me today that I never posted any photos of the Handmade Holiday Market we've had set up here at the store since the week before Thanksgiving! It's been going really, really well, and thank you to those of you in and near St. Louis who have been able to snatch up some goodies to support these amazing artisans. We'll have it up through Jan. 5, so be sure to swing by and check it out if you can!

This year's artisans are:


The ReTrailer is the cutest mobile tea and spice shop this side of the Mississippi, and all of Lisa's products are made with organic, fair trade ingredients, as well as a healthy dose of love. She also recently set up shop on Cherokee Street, opening Smalls Tea & Coffee this December!


Lesley of Flora Lorraine creates artisan hypertufa troughs using common disposables for molds and cotton burr compost as a more regional and sustainable alternative to peat moss. These natural containers are planted in exciting combinations for both indoor and outdoor garden enjoyment.


Fable + Lore is whimsical jewelry handcrafted with an eclectic mixture of new, vintage and upcycled materials. Chelsie is a quirky print/pattern/color/texture/craft-aholic, and makes each piece with love and obsessive behavior. Her pieces are perfect for someone who likes modern flair with a vintage soul! 


The Iris and The Bee is a boutique stationery company specializing in modern and elegantly simple custom designs. Designer Britni carefully crafts each piece and uses a variety of printing methods with fine paper and unexpected finishes.


Local photographer Courtney Patch lends her sensitive, unobtrusive presence to family celebrations, businesses and nonprofits through digital and Polaroid photography. This year she's taken some of her favorite (and very vintage-y) Polaroids and gathered them into a beautiful 2014 calendar!


Adrienne and Andy, the duo behind A Tiny Moth, make some really incredible soaps. Scent combinations such as ginger-lemongrass, tea tree-lavender, bay rum and coffee-oatmeal have been deliciously filling the store since they first dropped off their inventory. They've also stocked us with dog shampoo, shave soap, beeswax lotion bars and hair & beard tonic! Truly something for everyone!


Red Anvil is an independent indie jewelry and wearable art company whose owner Kate, a metalsmith by trade, strives to create inspired, well-made pieces that are edgy and imaginative. Her materials include, but are not limited to, upcycled items, toys, beads, buttons, found objects, fibers, pearls, copper, and silver. We are lucky to have some of her terrarium earrings and necklaces in stock, which add the perfect touch of whimsy to any outfit!


Sucre Shop creates the cutest little wooden utensils decked out with the cutest little designs! Owner Brooke loves pretty parties and creating unique things for her customers, and she and her team have been stocking the store with festive designs biodegradable forks, spoons, appetizer picks, cheese knives and really cute round gift tags!

See you all soon for your holiday gift shopping, right? ;-)

Online Store Updates


Hello, my lovelies! Well, I might have missed out on Cyber Monday, but I've been working my no-so-little buns off that past week to get the Parsimonia online vintage store back into shape, and wanted to let you know to start checking it again for regular updates of new merch.

And...AND...as a treat to my non-St. Louis shoppers, I'll be letting the new arrivals get settled online for a couple days before I put them out in the store. That way y'all get a chance to snatch it up first, which is my way of say "thanks" for being a fan even though you're far away! ;-)

The newest items will always be listed at the top, and checkout is through PayPal, so once you get to that point, it'll send you over there to finish your purchase, much like they do over at Etsy!

Right now I have approximately 30 items on there (hee-hee), but loads and loads more will start making an appearance over the next several days. So keep checking back!!

Have a great rest of your week!
