Vignette: “a small setting”

Our Specialty: Made in America

Vignettes has been researching to find the newest and neatest products made  by local entrepreneurs across this great country. We recently found a woman from Indiana who invented a hand muff, and was able to take her idea all the way to the finals in the show “Shark Tank”!  We recently ordered her muffs in the local school colors for football games, which are great for cheerleaders or mom’s watching in the stands. How about the mom from Michigan, who turns used wool sweaters in the most adorable mittens? We also happened upon some beautiful jewelry from Iowa and Minnesota, and beer glasses and wall signs from Wisconsin. The list goes on, and all you have to do is look for the American Flags they have placed by each product!

Everything You Need

Our store offers a little bit of everything.  We have an extensive collection of Vera Bradley, Troll Beads, and Brighton, just to name a few.  We value high-quality, made-in- America merchandise, usually hand-made from fabulous materials.
