zuzus: late summer into fall

The last of the summer kikoys are still available; perfect for that early autumn chill when all you need is something pretty and light around your neck or shoulders.
100% cotton, out of Kenya.
The zuzus use these as a beach towel/coverup,table runner, or even a seasonal throw to cheer up that corner chair in the living room.

These puffy satin and velevet traveling jewelry boxes fairly flew out of both The Big and Little Zu last season. They are back and still $40.
In the spirit of shopping local, we have ordered our favorite pottery from our old friends in New Jersey. Coffee mugs, milk jugs, and dipping bowls.
The colors are delicious, reminiscent of collectible McCoys....from Butter, Cream, Vanilla, to Grass Green, Kiwi, Florida Blue and Eggplant.
$15-$28 .

Grapefruit Red Currant hits you with its clean bite and soft finish.
Victorian Pineapple, a surprise to us all, is perfect for an outdoor shower.
South Seas, Provence, Canteloupe Cucumber, Mandarin, Fresh Cut Mint...every soap has its own unique appeal . Imported from France
