florspace is about everything adorable, quirky, unique, indie, classic & most of all, functional.
We believe in sharing the love for quality handmade goods like it always should have been. We don’t sell stuff we won’t already love so you get the good stuff everytime! We often take our sample designs to the streets, use them to bits to see if we love them enough to share them! No basement sweatshops and mass production here…
For anyone who wants to know, florspace is never my hobby, its my full time job. I live and breathe what I do and absolutely love it. ;+) Woo-hoo!
Do you have travels planned this summer? Then take along one of these adorable pieces of luggage from Another Jamie Davis. These upcycled suitcases, bags and purses are plucked from relative obscurity from flea markets, thrift stores and yard sales and renewed by artist Jamie Davis. Each piece is lovingly repaired, often re-lined and then hand embroidered with a tree theme.
I’ve made things all my life, bunk beds for my dolls when i was 8, dresses for my little sister when I was old enough to use the sewing machine. I dabbled in selling my jewelry and hand made purses at holiday bazaars in college but it wasn’t until after graduate school that I found etsy and fell in love with idea of selling my things online.
Jamie’s shop has been open since October of 2008, but she found her focus on upcycled embroidered handbags in April of 2009.
I’m really enamored with the luggage in my etsy shop right right now (could it be that I’m longing for a vacation?). I absolutely love this little yellow tree suitcase because it’s bright and fun. And I love the Black Wood Grain Hip Bag overnight bag because it’s perfectly practical, and big enough to carry everything you could need for a weekend away.
Jamie was born and raised in the Akron Ohio area — made things — went to art school at the University of Akron, studied Metalsmithing and sculpture — made things, moved to Massachusetts to go to graduate school — made things — got an M.F.A. in sculpture — made things. Are you catching a trend here?
