Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Hey guys!

As I was thinking about gift giving this holiday season, it occurred to me that every year, I hear friends and family expressing their frustrations with the daunting task of figuring out what to get their loved ones. For me personally, I'm always on the hunt for a cool creative gift that's unique and special. 

In an effort to provide a set of alternative to my friends here at The Coffey Break, highlight my new selection of decorative pieces and plants for the home over at, and show some love to a few small businesses and brands I love, I've compiled a list to hopefully provide you with some great new places to shop this year!

Know a local brand or small business you'd love to see get some support? Feel free to drop their name and website in the comments below.

Want to shop The Coffey Shop in person? Join me this Saturday at Cafeza from 11am - 4pm to shop my collection of plants, home decor, and gift bags curated just for you by me.

Merry Christmas + Happy New Year you guys!

Wishing you nothing but the best in 2018!

All designs are created and manufactured in house and shipped by the duo to ensure quality and accuracy. Every shirt and accessory is unique to their brand and conceptualized with one sole purpose; to share the Christian faith.

Their motto which also serves as a double entendre: "all you need is pintsizefaith" is a gentle reminder of God's promise as stated in Matthew 17:20.


Create The Culture: 

Krystel collins work explores the direct relation between the observation and interpretation  of love, pain, joy, power, melancholy, anxiety and stimulation. The subjects, often female, are portrayed in a light that embodies strength, with a sense of familiarity that allows the audience to connect.  Using bold lines, shapes and posture to depict her vision, Krystle’s work captures and appreciates the beauty in identifying  the outer expression of our inner nature
