If you’ve stopped by the new Big Spoon Creamery storefront in Avondale, you might have noticed Winslet & Rhys. This beautiful home goods and gift shop offers Birmingham a fresh perspective on the traditional mercantile store. Stop by this weekend to see their beautifully curated goods!
Sharing a building with MAKE BHM, Winslet & Rhys offers carefully curated goods, made by local and nonlocal artists, to Birmingham. Cofounded by creatives and designers, Brittany Baker and Mallory Collier merged their gifts, abilities, and middle names to bring Winslet and Rhys to life.
Inspired by the informal, neighborly atmosphere of traditional, small-town mercantile stores, Baker and Collier created their modern mercantile with that same feel, but specializing in home goods and easily accessible custom design services.
Their goods range from adorable baby clothes and gifts to artisan chocolate to ethically made scarves and timeless, classic clothes.
Oliver Tell studio, Winslet & Rhys’ letterpress studio, makes all of their awesome stationery in house.
They also offer their design services to the community by hosting and leading workshops! In the past, they have taught calligraphy and letterpress workshops. Join them on June 29th from 7-9 pm for their floral workshop and learn how to beautifully arrange summer flowers.
