Okay, so while I fully understand that the below items may not get those-who-really-love-Christmas-stockings (i.e. people under the age of 10) all in a tizzy, I’m guessing those-who-really-love-sustainable-handmade design will feel differently.
Rogues Gallery, Portland, Maine-based purveyor of vintage-inspired T-shirts and clothing that can best be described as “salty collegiate chic” has branched out into holiday décor with a home goods line that includes handmade stockings, stocking ornaments, sachets and pillows.
The stockings — choose from Black Suede and Patchwork, Red Houndstooth, and Red & Green Patchwork — are handcrafted from quilted vintage wool and salvaged flannel. Each one-of-a-kind stocking comes complete with a jingle bell cluster. They cost $85 each. Yes, this is spendy for a piece of seasonal décor but for a handmade, heirloom quality item, I think it’s worth it especially for those who are scared of (sewing) needles but are on the prowl for something unique and handmade.
Also included in the special Rogues Gallery holiday home goods line are super cozy-looking vintage wool flannel pillows ($96) stuffed with down and feathers and balsam fir filled vintage wool flannel sachets ($18 for small and $23 for large). I really like them sachets (hint, hint).
