WELLNESS

Shopping Small with Pink Olive

Doug Arnaudin

You all know how much I love the thrill of shopping small & local. Well, imagine my excitement when I stumbled into Pink Olive in the East Village, NYC. It was a snowy and cold day. The biggest blizzard in New York history was on it's way, barreling up the East Coast, promising inches of snow stacked higher than flapjacks at a pancake house. 

And yet, even in the storm, there Pink Olive stood, a warm rose gold glow radiating from the window. I turned the painted ceramic knob and stepped inside. 

Trinkets, baubles, artisanal candles, designer stationary, delicate ceramic dishes, printed tape, stickers & the cutest watermelon onesie you've ever seen surrounded me and I received a joyous welcome from (although I didn't know it at the time) Grace Kang, founder & CEO. 

Pink Olive has been featured in DailyCandy, The Today Show, Oprah.com, Timeout New York, Gotham, Brides, Urbanbaby, People.com’sDecor8blog.com, Cool Mom Kids.

Pink Olive is the type of shop you will get *gloriously* lost in. It makes you feel whimsical & nostalgic. It makes you want to sit down at a real table (a luxury in-and-of-itself when you live in a studio!) and write to a loved one. Not an email. Not a text. No snapchats nor instant messages. A real, tangible, old-fashioned, snail-mail letter. The light-hearted selection of beautiful cards are so artistically curated that you could even frame them to use as art!

With Valentines Day approaching, I urge you to check out the shop with locations in Manhattan & Brooklyn or visit online. Forget big chain retailers. Let's stand together to share the love & support small, women owned & operated businesses this year!

After all, it's much sweeter than sending glitter to your enemies

Plus! Stay tuned for how you can enter to win a card from the Pink Olive shop in the upcoming (first ever!) Axis Artistry giveaway! 

XO,

Jess
