Salt & Honey

Salt & Honey are a pair of local artists who create beautiful custom terrariums.

Here at Blue Elephant we have two examples of their work. The Mr. Solo Dolo is a very sweet little terrarium with spring moss inside a glass bird topped vessel. In comparison, the Sea Lion in a huge affair comprised of purple passion vine, club moss, and assorted ferns within a large apothecary vessel.

Singer Sew Handy (SOLD)


We're back to normal schedule now that I don't feel like I'm being stabbed in the kidney!

This week's featured item is a vintage Singer Sew Handy children's portable sewing machine from the 1960's. It's in working order and in pretty good condition. It does have a small burn mark on the exterior of the bottom, but that's the only major flaw. It's super cute and $37.50 right now and will soon (on 1/26) be only $25.

Blue Elephant Closed Until Next Week

Jessica's kidney stones are really throwing her for a loop. If any of you have ever had any, I'm sure you can relate to the discomfort she's going through. She's been giving it a good try to keep Blue Elephant open, but I think she now needs some time to rest and recuperate. We apologize for any inconvenience, and hope to see you soon. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!
