d*s shop: open for business!

this little sponge is so happy she could burst. i never thought this day would come, but it has! the d*s shop is open and ready for business! after many months of hard work, the d*s shop is loaded up with six brand new, exclusive, limited-edition designs. each one is $100 or less, available for shipment worldwide and 100% of the profits will go directly to the designers themselves. at the beginning of every month we'll launch six new designs so when these pieces are sold out, tune in nov 1 for the next batch! in addition, 10% of the site's ad revenue will go to charity- this month i'm donating to the humane society of the united states. so click here to meet this month's designers: karin eriksson, lena corwin, maria of port2port, paula of henry road, jenny sauer of threesheets2thewind and amy adams of perch design!

[thanks so much to kate klapfish for building the site from the ground up, alice stevenson for designing the banner and to all the designers for their hard work and beautiful designs.]

wow. affordable limited-edition pieces from awesome indie artists? i LOVE it. and i'm so impressed that you've been able to get the shop up and running while still doing all of your usual d*s work.

based on the fabulous artists/products you launched with, i have a feeling the d*s shop is going to further feed my online shopping problem!

Great work and ideas, Grace and team! The shop is awesome!!

That 100% of the product profit goes directly back to the designer is *really* great -- but it doesn't say that anywhere on the shop's website (just in your d*s post). I think it should be put somewhere obvious as it's an idea central to your shop's identity.

Wow, the shop is a great idea. It's really amazing that 100% of the profits go to the designers/artists. What a sweet, noble endeavor. And with your great taste to boot!

Hi Grace,

I was wondering if you're interested in selling a d*s franchise to me?
