Third Day of Gift Giving - For the New Mother

Another awesome annoucement…we’ve made swaddle sets!  We know how babies feel wrapped in cozy muslin and the new mother’s in your life will surely appreciate a beautiful grey elephant swaddle set.  It includes 1 swaddle blanket (48” square), 1 double sided burp cloth (13” x 10.5”), 2 small dab cloths (8.5” square) and comes in drawstring cotton pouch (13.5 x 6.5”). 

Comes in an assortment of colors and designs available online and in the shop!

The Goose is Getting Fat!

Hi Foxy friends - it’s that time of year…and over here at F&W we are working up a storm on custom holiday cards, listening to carols and dreaming about what we’ll give our friends and family this holiday season. In the process, we thought, what better way to introduce you to all our new and wonderful things than to put together a GREAT gift guide made up of things to gift give from our shop!  Starting on December 1, we’ll release one item every day for each and every special person in your life.  Also, as an added incentive, the featured item will be discounted 10% in the shop the same day it’s released! Wooo WHOO!

 In the mean time, check out our new holiday cards which can be purchased in box sets or singles…we look forward to seeing you this holiday season!

The Holiday Line-Up

We here at Foxy & Winston hope you had a lovely and cozy Thanksgiving - surrounded by friends and family.  We have so much to be thankful for around here and we are sincerely looking forward to this holiday season.  We’re rolling out LOADS of new items (and please keep checking back in, we’ll be revealing our Foxy & Winston gift guide beginning December 1). 

We wanted to share our whereabouts over the next few week, gearing up to the New Year.    Please stop by and say hello and shop for holiday gifts!

Besides being in the shop in Red Hook, you can find us:

And here’s a sneak peek at some of the lovely new items you’ll find from Foxy & Winston!

Oy Sandy, Enough Already...!

It’s pretty clear that Red Hook won’t be the same for quite a while.  Every day we are saddened by a neighbor’s devastating story and learn of more and more losses due to Sandy. There are a few things people can do to help us recover quicker; one is shop locally, and by local I mean in Red Hook.  Another is donate to the Restore Red Hook fund that will benefit the most damaged businesses in the neighborhood. We will be forever grateful for your patronage and support - especially as we close in on the holidays. 

Here are a list of business that are up and running this week (besides us!):

Papillionaire BicyclesMetal and ThreadTiburonErie BasinWaterfront Kitchens

And if you get hungry after all your shopping:  BakedHope and Anchor Dry Dock

And lastly, our sentiments exactly…                                        

   

Williams-Sonoma Artisan Marketplace

We’ve been very lucky, as of late, to be part of many different markets and fairs.  It’s so great being part of these gatherings as we get to meet many fellow talented artisans and get our brand out .  We are looking forward to this upcoming Saturday - we get to be a part of Williams-Sonoma Artisan Marketplace.  Please come to Columbus Circle’s Williams-Sonoma and visit us this Saturday, November 3rd…we’ll be featured with our new aprons (for kids and adults!), tea towels, napkins and boxed stationery! 

Hurricane Sandy

Just wanted to report that we are here at Foxy & Winston are safe and sound.  We have no power, and cannot anticipate when it will be back, so please be patient with us as we get situated.  The shop and studio were very fortunate to escape relatively unscathed. 

The same cannot be said for some of our neighbors and our hearts and thoughts go out to them.  Red Hook is a very small and close community and when one of neighbors is down, we all are.  Please send all your best wishes to those in Red Hook who were badly affected by this storm.  

In the mean time, here is Jane escaping with Hope on Monday morning!

 

Gilded Edges...

Me oh my, aren’t these lovely?  We are so excited about this suite (for many reasons!). Here are a few: 

  • it’s in Spanish and our first invitation in another language. And it’s Royalty sized! And there is gold ink!

  • there are painted edges!
  • it has a custom postage stamp with matching lined envelopes!

We love it, but we’ll let you be the judge…;)

Map Save the Date

Maps! We love em.  Whether it is to highlight points of interest or if it’s purpose is utilitarian, nothing gets your guests into a celebratory mood like a map save the date…especially for a destination wedding!  

Here’s one we recently did for a Brooklyn bride getting married in the Prospect Park Picnic House. Love the golfer and Coney Island Cyclone!

Highlighting

It’s that time again…time for us to go on about one of our brides with spot-on taste.  Neon is all over the place now and we’re so excited to have used it in an invitation. Check out this neon pink invite for an upcoming winter wedding!

and that fabulous ampersand! 

Stationery Day!

We’ve been super lucky to have designed quite a bit of custom stationery the last few weeks.  We thought we’d share a few of our favorites…

Baby stationery…adorbs.

Wedding stationery for a German couple who now live in NYC…love the international borders ;)

and a simple notecard for one of our favorite restauranteurs! Who doesn’t love Seersucker

Purple Haze

Trend spotting…we’ve printed quite a few invitations lately on ecru with aubergine ink.  There is just something so classy about it! We’re so happy for all our new brides we just wanted to share a few new items hot off the press.

Here’s a look at a fun New Orleans wedding for two of the sweetest people we’ve met yet!

Can you see all the tiny Fleur-de-lys?

Loving the nod to the second line on the RSVP’s.

A jazz brunch for the night before.

and a custom postage stamp to boot…

Also we never shared our Anemone suite, which, we think, came out gorgeous! This bride was so fun to work with, she had great style and great taste! 

New Letterpress Box Sets and Note Cards.

Another fun announcement. This time we’re doing what we do best and are pleased to launch our new line of letterpress box sets and note cards. We’re so proud of this line and can’t wait to launch more designs in the coming months.  Right now we’ve got a few Thank You cards (boxed and single), a Congratulations card, a Greetings card (boxed and single) and a Thinking of You card. Come shop them this weekend at The Flea or in the shop!
