Quirky in a good way. There isn't an item we don't covet from Hazel and Melvin, a Minneapolis-based online shop.
Designer Rebecca Yaker runs Hazel and Melvin. Her items exude handmade charm but don't look homemade. The Abacus Quilt is a real find ($115).
The color and pattern combination truly is unique and works for boys or girls. It's a great way to infuse color into the nursery. Use it as a playmat or impromptu changing area. The quilts are filled with 100% cotton fleece batting.
How about this crib set? Alexander Henry's 2-D Zoo
print in blue is paired with a concentric dots print. Sheets and reversible bumpers are 100% cotton. The crib set is $185, and the pieces can be purchased separately.
We are loving Hazel and Melvin diaper bags (wait for pic to change). This
Balance Natural messenger type bag is made from Japanese fabric designed by Etsuko Fuyura. It's got lots of pockets and comes with a matching changing pad.
If all of these items are a bit too expensive but you don't want to walk away empty-handed, add one of these unique handmade sock monkeys. This one is named Gilda and she's yours for $42.
Hazel and Melvin definitely is worth a bookmark; you'll be glad you did the next time you get a baby shower invitation. Our only suggestion would be that the product photos are better lit in the future.
