When BBH interviewed crafter Hillery Sproatt last August, we asked her what she hoped to achieve with her work. Her answer was certain: to open a store of found and handmade objects. "It is my favorite dream," she said. Well, guess what? Her dream came true and frankly, so did ours.
Specks & Keepings is Hillery's online shop "filled with handmade and collected objects and design." And oh how it is filled to the brim with whimsy and delight! The beautifully rendered images, eloquently written descriptions, and of course the delicate handmade objects themselves (everything from clothing and handbags to mobiles and napkins) are altogether stunning.
