I opened the Finely Crafted boutique in October 2012 inside midtown Atlanta’s Paris on Ponce design market. I saw it as an opportunity to leap from the sidelines as “handmade cheerleader” and join the game as a “handmade curator.” I round up home décor, personal accessories, and gifts that salute modernism and midcentury kitsch. I hope that my combination of today’s artists and artisans with vintage finds transports visitors to a California ranch filled with laughter and lounge music!
Naturally, I favor small companies and individuals who pour their hearts into their creations, many of which are made by hand. Some brands I carry are IMM Living, Xenia Taler Ceramics, Ferm, Leah Giberson, Yellow Owl Workshop, Nell & Mary, Red Stitch, Jeanette Zeis Ceramics, Day of the Thread, Happy Owl Glassworks, Knit Pray Love, Perch, Clue Town Books, and Leah Duncan. Contact me if you’re a maker whose products would fit right in.
Finely Crafted is open Monday-Saturday 11-6 and Sunday 12-6. Visit my retail playground and more than 30 other unique shops inside Paris on Ponce, 716 Ponce de Leon Place NE, Atlanta, GA 30306 • (404) 249-9965
