The mercury is finally starting to dip, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to scurry inside. Late autumn is the best time of year for outdoor activities, from tree-hunting and tailgates to settling in for stories (and wine) by a roaring outdoor fire.
All of these require the proper gear, of course, and The Little Shoebox in Ruxton carries cold weather accessories, all perfect to wrap around yourself – or to wrap as gifts. Furry knitted earmuffs,
cozy head wraps and scarves, rabbit fur infinity scarves with fun, vibrant stripes of blue, pink and purple,
and warm hats topped with fur pom poms keep you warm and stylish in the cold.
One of the cutest – and feel-good – finds this season are knitted hand warmers by Nirvanna Designs. Handmade by craftspeople in Nepal, the chunky fingerless mittens are as warm as they are stylish. They’ll keep you warm and keep your fingers free for drinks, snacks – and Instagram.
Nirvanna Designs, a company founded in 1996 by Nir Gurel and Anna Fischer, partners with local communities in Nepal, Indonesia, India and Thailand, who knit warm, woolen mittens using products from their regions. The purchase of Nirvanna’s products helps boost the communities’ economies – and keep you toasty warm in the best way.
This week, we’re thrilled to offer one pair of hand warmers as a giveaway. To enter to win the giveaway, leave a comment with your name and your favorite by-the-fire drink. A winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday, November 18 at 10 a.m. Stay cozy!
To shop these cold weather finds, visit The Little Shoebox at 7625 Bellona Avenue in Ruxton. For more information call 410-825-3191 or visit the Little Shoebox Facebook page. Don’t forget to like them on Facebook!
