Clay Wood & Cotton wants to be your source for the best handmade items for your home, as they come right out and tell you on their website. Their owners, Kristen and Kristy, are former New Yorkers who met on the New York craft scene and began selling their wares together at the Brooklyn Flea. Soon they had a website selling their work plus work from other handmade artists and designers whom they liked and admired, which eventually turned into their own brick-and-mortar store in upstate New York. Their store and online shop sells a variety of handmade items—from ceramic tabletop pieces to handprinted tea towels, from throw pillows to toys, stationary, and homemade soaps. As they move forward, they're also hoping to add some more paper products, knitting and sewing supplies, and craft kits to their inventory. Check out their website for daily site specials and follow their online notebook for the latest news.
