Since all the stores have started decking the halls for Christmas, I thought it only fitting that we start sharing some great giveaways and deals to help you think about unique and fun presents.  So many of you are home based entrepreneurs and have great talents!!  I’m excited to spend this week sharing some great hand made products that not only make for fun presents, but also directly help out sweet families across the US.

To start off our week of giveaways and products, how about  fun shabby-chic gifts from Tattered Goods.   They are a mother/daughter team from California, that started a business from the desire to find the vintage charm look that would compliment their cottage style homes.  I don’t have a cottage style home, but I still love putting cute vintage items in my home to make it feel more warm and cozy.

Tattered Goods has a passion for all things vintage and time-worn and they like to mix in some new things as well!  I love that their designs are not too fussy, they have a very simple beauty and charm that works in a number of settings.

Tattered Goods sent me a few things to try out, and I love all of it!  First is a tattered ruffled towel with a hot pad that matches!  The towel is a lot bigger than I expected.  It goes great either tossed over the handle of my oven, or around some warm bread in a basket.  The hot pad is great and well made, too!  They both make me smile when I look at them.  It’s not often that you walk into a kitchen and see such beautifully made kitchen linens with such a funny bull printed on them, staring back at you.

My favorite thing from Tattered Goods was a set of four encouraging coasters.  Each of them is beautiful with a thoughtful reminder printed on it.  They’re going to look great on any coffee table, and I’m glad to have them for the holiday season when we have guests coming over.

They have a number of other products, that you’ll want to check out.  I’m actually pondering ordering two different towels to give to folks…

Shipping starts at $2.50.
