It's been more than a year since the world was this open. Many of us are coming out of our hibernation period with new perspectives, priorities, and passions that we want to share with the community around us.

Artisan Stories

 The beautiful and diverse products we offer here at Lucia's would not be possible without the artisans we partner with. These artisans, some even in the face of oppression, are dedicated to preserving their heritage in their handicrafts. Take for example, many of the woven products we carry from Guatemala. These items are woven using a backstrap loom, said to be given to women at creation in Mayan tradition. Read more about weaving and textiles in this artisan story, and share it with your family and friends when you use a fair trade product.

Staff Picks!

We reached out to two of our full time staffers here at Lucia's and asked, "What is your favorite item in the shop for post-pandemic?" Here's what they said:

"As things begin to open up more, I'm excited to go out in my Rajani Jewelry Set. It's simple enough to go with most of my outfits, yet the necklace still makes a great statement piece! We have all been through a lot of changes over the past year, and I love the symbolism of lunar phases as we come out of the pandemic. The full moon in the necklace makes me think of the growth we've accumulated, and the light that we can shine as we step back into social situations with those we love and new acquaintances." - Hannah, Marketing Team

"We just found out the 4th of July Fireworks are back on this year for our town!!   It feels like a fitting celebration as life begins to move toward normal!  I'm looking forward to grabbing my Brushed Cotton Blanket and heading out to watch them. Blankets and sitting outside with people again popped into my head when I saw post-pandemic." - Kathi, Saugatuck Sales Team
