  • Spring News + Seasonal Gift Guide

    Spring finally feels like it’s here to stay and with it that familiar buzz of newness and rebirth, the impulse to participate in the growth around you, that you, too, might just bud and bloom.  A sort of inexplicable excitement characterizes this time of year—each time you step out of the house, the world is different. Often this season inspires us to take assessment of what we have, what we need, and what’s on our horizons. Though we don’t instinctually think of this time of year as the gift giving season, when you take a larger look at the calendar...
  • Conversations from Our Couch

    Sitting with us today is Cutter Huston.  Photo credit: Andrea Hubbell Cutter is 16 years old, a junior at Albemarle County High School.  He returned to Charlottesville last year after his father was reassigned as the Commander of the JAG school at UVA. Before living here, his family lived in Tampa, Florida where he was introduced to The Laundry Project by his mom, Michelle. She heard about the project on the local news in Tampa and they volunteered together at the organization’s next event. Cutter was immediately inspired. The Laundry Project is one branch of a non-profit based in Tampa called Current Initiatives.  The founder, Jason Sowell, is...
  • Love is in the air...

    Love is in the air! Coming right up is the annual celebration of all things love related, and as always, we are here to help! We frequently hear from male shoppers that our store is the favorite of one or many of the women in their life – so we feel confident that whoever you are buying for will be excited about any of these gifts: One of the best things you can do for Valentine’s day is pamper your loved one. A silk eye mask from local artist Elizabeth Few, or coffee and breakfast in bed served in a beautiful Farmhouse...
  • The Year 🐾f the Dog

    This February will mark the transition from the year of the Rooster, to the year of the Dog. The Dog in the chinese zodiac represents loyalty, sincerity, and honesty. People born in these years are thought to be communicative, serious, and responsible. You can take it or leave it, but it inspired us to talk dogs (woof woof!) on the blog this month. At Roxie Daisy, we love dogs! We have a shop dog who is often in the store, working hard to greet the customers.  Plus, we always welcome furry visitors in the shop, but this month we wanted...
  • Gift Guide: For Her

    If you’ve ever stopped by the store, you know that we are a small group of women. That being said, we spend a lot of time during the holidays talking about what we are buying as gifts, and what we are hoping to receive as gifts. No other gift guide that we create is as tried and true as this one, which is a list of things that we are all personally obsessed with. 1. Mischa Lampert hats are new to the shop this season, and we couldn’t be more excited! Mischa spins her own wool yarn, then hand knits...
  • Gift Guide: Little Ones

    The magic of Christmas is most apparent when there are little ones around. They are the most fun to spoil and the most fun to watch open gifts. We stocked up on some awesome gifts for them this year so you could do just that! 1. Hand knit alpaca slippers, in dogs or lambs. These make a great option if your family does a PJ exchange on Christmas Eve, but also work great as a stocking stuffer to keep their feet warm while they open the rest of their gifts. 2. Jess Brown dolls are a beautiful alternative to plastic...
  • Gift Guide: Hostess

    The holidays are full of gatherings, dinners, and events. We all strive to do it all and one thing that often falls to last minute panic is the hostess gift (or host gift🙇). We put together this list as a fail-safe go-to so you can avoid all that stress. We recommend stocking up on a few – plus we’ll wrap them for you, so you can grab them and go on your merry way 🎁 1. Farmhouse Pottery makes a beautiful gift for anyone – but these little match strikers are a special treat for someone you really want to thank...
  • Gift Guide: For Him

    Men present a particular difficulty when it comes to buying gifts – they tend to value function over form, and often “don’t want anything” because they don’t need anything. We strive to bring in a curated selection of upgraded essentials for the men in your life, and this year these are among our favorites. 1. A flask funnel! It’s the most useful stocking stuffer you never knew he needed. Simple and efficient, this little baby turns what is usually a messy (& wasteful!) job into a breeze. 2. Men don’t tend to buy candles for themselves, and it can be...
  • Thanksgiving & Beyond

    We often write about ways to make your tabletop stand out, and we’re right at the time of year when most people start taking stock of what they have, and what they really need before the Thanksgiving cooking marathon begins. This year, we wanted to do something a little different, since our decorating tips from last year still hold. One integral component of any holiday table is The Serving Dish. The things foods sit in while hungry hands attack it. This month on the blog, we’re featuring Farmhouse Pottery to help you tackle the question, how many casserole dishes are too many...
  • Inside the Studio with Liz Hanson

    As I walk into Liz Hanson’s Ivy home, a few minutes behind Karen and Andrea, I notice immediately that its just that – a home. The door was left open for me, just enough to say, “come on in.” I can hear laughter from somewhere inside, while a lazy lab greets me at the door. There are no pretenses here. Liz Hanson's Ivy, Charlottesville home. I take a left and find everyone waiting for me in the living room. Liz, who always has an air of “grooviness”, shows us the turtles that used to be her daughter's, but who now live...
