* Margot dropped into Shoppe Object last weekend; her favorite new finds: classic wool blankets from Civil Alchemy; French striped linen tea towels from line Charvet Éditions and French striped wool throws from Moismont; embroidered quilts and patchwork oven mitts from Japanese fashion line 11.11 / Eleven Eleven; jewel-toned glassware from Sir/Madam; and taper candles from British Colour Standard.

* Refresh your favorite stained clothes by dropping them off (or mailing them to) Suay Sew Shop in DTLA, now offering a monthly “community dye bath.”

* Japanese brand Kinto makes its East Coast debut.

* Save the date for “brunch and super tableware deals” at DBO Home’s ceramics sale pop-up at Ilse Coffee in New Canaan, CT, Feb 18.

* Eagerly awaiting the arrival of BLK MKT Vintage: Reclaiming Objects and Curiosities That Tell Black Stories, available for pre-order now. (Meanwhile, follow @blkmktvintage.)

* Ever in search of good house slippers, we like this pair in celebration of The Year of the Dragon.

* Researching our 7 Best Canvas Tote Bags post, we were happy to see that Bag.uettes, makers of fanciful bread bags, offers easy-to-follow, no-waste patterns—including, yes, a tote.

* The ethereal appeal of Chinese lanterns in floral arrangements.

* Building a garden from scratch? Here are six elements that make a winning outdoor space.

* And for the Valentine who has it all: world’s best-looking TP holder, now in pink. | BidBuddy.com
