Weddings! Save the dates! Birth Announcements! We at Foxy & WInston have been working with our wonderful clients lately to create letterpress stationery that marks special moments in their lives and we're excited to show you what we've come up with:
This past week we got a new, huge delivery of Sweater Toys by one of our favorite local makers Caitlin Wicker. Each critter is lovingly handmade from re-purposed, soft as can be sweaters and has its own sweet name tag. The Whale, Hammerhead (did you know it's Shark week?!) and Squid Rattles are her latest adorable product - made of the softest organic cotton and completely machine washable!
Things here at Foxy & Winston are winding down for the Summer and we are now on hiatus from the Brooklyn Flea until September 7th - taking some time..
All sorts has been been happening here at Foxy HQ. Firstly, after a year as Studio Director, our pal Jessica has moved onto pastures new and I wish her all the luck in the world with her new post in the Stationery Dept. at Tiffany & Co. Hope and I will miss her madly!
Meanwhile, apart from working on new textile and stationery designs, I have been painting and fixing up the shop after almost four years in business here in Red Hook. Simon and I have also taken time out to go away with pals. Highlights so far have been this Motel in Phoenicia, NY and camping at Wildwood State Park on the Long Island Sound, which we do EVERY year!
This week saw the arrival of a new line at Foxy & Winston: Decomposition Books by Michael Roger. These guys are local to Red Hook and have been in business making their sweet notebooks and journals (now 100% PC Recycled) since 1949! They are a great deal at just $6-9 and come in a variety of styles.
In other news we are having a Foxy Textile SECONDS CLEARANCE SALE at the shop over the next few weeks with prices ranging from $8 to $25. Napkins, Towels, Totes, Aprons and Cushions. All must go!!
Recently, I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon in Dumbo with a group of extremely crafty girls, Janet and Katie from For the Makers , jewelry designer Deborah Rice and Jen and Kena; the founders of BRIKA. We learned how to make silk floral accessories, using supplies from one of New York's oldest and largest institution's called M&S Schmalberg. This sweet film was created by documentary filmmaker Alex Budman. Thanks ladies for a fun afternoon!
As usual, we have some great clients. That means new wedding invitations to share with you! A note: click on the image to scroll through our new pictures. Enjoy!
Come and grab that special dude in your life a card. Celebrate what he means to you with a sweet hedgehog pair or an ant heart!
This year marks the 4th year for Total Red Hook Immersion day. Please come down and enjoy the neighborhood while taking advantage of a few perks at the shop. Everything will be 15% off for the day! Stop on by!
Oh boy, this is a good one. Just arrived, the most beautiful smelling salves a girl could ask for…and a few things for the boys as well! Los Poblanos comes to us from a New Mexican lavender farm. Stop in and enjoy!

We’ve been busy working on lots of new custom work…take a peek! Do you love them as much as we do?
We just finished one of our favorite invitations for a lovely bride and groom getting married in Prospect Park in May. We just loved how she used vintage postage stamps for her envelopes. Look how beautifully it turned out! Wouldn’t you love to get that in the mail?
Tomorrow we start-up at the Brooklyn Flea (which means Spring!) at the Fort Greene location. We can’t wait to see you there!
Also, we’ve done a bit of a shop re-do so you can always stop by if you are in Red Hook this weekend too.
We love this product so much and we are so happy to have it back in the shop! We are now carrying soaps and candles in the following fragrances:
Crushed Lavender & Violet
Persimmon & White Tea
Black Pepper & Amber
We have been waiting for these little vials to arrive for some time! We’re now stocking Olo Fragrances from Portland, Oregon. Olo creates some of the most unique, earthy and sophisticated scents we’ve experienced.
Come in and check out:
Lightening Paw (Bergamot, Jasmine, Patchouli and Vanilla).
National 6/7 (Jasmine, Lemon, Rose and Sandelwood) *our personal favorite.
Victory Wolf (birch tar, cedar and tobacco)

This announcement has been a long time coming for us. We recently announced our yardage, we have for sale. Now, we are happy to tell you about our newest collaboration with Chairloom, who recently made our amazing new Co-Lab storage ottoman with mid century feet (which are made of walnut - stop by the shop to see it in person - it’s gorgeous!)
Wouldn’t this storage bench look so great with matching curtains for a nursery? Or paired with a matching headboard in a master suite? Please contact us for fabric samples or if you are interested in a custom ottoman of your own!
