I always laugh a little when I land on the website buyolympia.com. It’s a lovely little site filled with small handcrafted goodies and lots of wonderful art from Nikki McClure. It’s just a little strange for me because Olympia is my hometown. I never liked it there and I even feel embrassed revealing my origins to you. A lot of people regard it as a mecca of indie art and music (the band Sleater-Kinney is from there and named after a highway I frequented as a youth, Kurt Cobain lived in a nearby town, etc..) I’ve always thought of Olympia as rainy and dull and I couldn’t wait to graduate from high school so I could leave. Anyways, once I get over the connection, I love the website!:) These French colored pencils and this little wooded post card are two of my favorites.
