Store Review: Appetite

Talk about gems!  This local boutique, Appetite, was a perfect find on a Saturday afternoon. As soon as I walked in I noticed the hand selected vintage pieces and handprinted + handcrafted beautifully designed interior goods. Appetite was founded by two sisters, Erin and Megan. They cut, sew and print each individual piece in their studio which is conveniently located in the back of their shop. Erin and Megan were so nice to talk to and I was able to take pictures of Erin actually screen printing on the fabric. It was amazing! Take a look.

Appetite’s goods are displayed in the front half of the store. The other half is where all the design, sewing, production and screen printing happens. Check out their cute studio!

I was so happy I got to snap some shots of the artist, Erin, doing what she loves most. Look at these awesome patterns she’s creating. I love the two contrasting colors of the dark and light blues.

I loved all the handcrafted fabrics. It was great seeing the original textiles before they were sewn into beautiful pillow cases, table clothes, duvet covers and napkins (to name a few).
