Happy Birthday, The Storied Table!
We’re turning one, and I couldn't be more excited. This year has been a true adventure, and The Storied Table couldn't have been born without the support of a bevy of savvy and curious customers, product photographers, interns, assistants, shipping experts, marketing gurus, and, most importantly, fabulously creative artisans that long to tell stories through art!
Who would have thought that a passion for throwing parties, setting the table, mixing inherited and new pieces, gathering friends, and accumulating stacks of home files labeled “future purchases”, would end up morphing into a digital business. Makes me believe in magic!
I’ve spent this past year traveling, sourcing unique tabletop products and meeting new maker friends. In this past year I’ve been on buying trips stretching from Delhi, to San Miguel Allende, to Reykavik, to Frankfurt. I’ve met creative women textile entrepreneurs just now launching in Brooklyn incubators and potters who have spent a career in making functional art. Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve met people excited by the power of enhancing everyday beauty through functional handmade objects
To celebrate our first birthday, I’m donating 10% of all sales during October to Envision. I fell in love with the hands-on Envision Arts Studio Program where special needs artists are creating textiles, quilts, painting and ceramics.
“Empowering People and Creating Possibilities” is Envision’s mission and it’s one that we at The Storied Table are pleased to support.
I sincerely hope you will join us as we spread the love and inspiration. Thank you for the best year EVER!
