NEVA CO, Artisan Boutique

NEVA CO Artisan Boutique recently opened its doors on Broad Street in downtown Nevada City.  The locally made gifts range from jewelry, household items, greeting cards and more.  Owner Cythnia Leseque has an artist friendly arrangement to help support the growing artist community.  Monthly craft workshops, keep tabs on her facebook page for updates, please tell her the Outside Inn sent you.  And since the Innside Nevada City blog has been having so much fun with giveaways NEVA Co has offered a beautiful handmade necklace (see below) to one lucky reader.  Please post a comment on this blog post about your favorite hand crafted item and I’ll pick a winner next Wednesday, June 13th.  While the shop is all local items, non-locals welcome to post a comment and I’ll mail the necklace to the winner, but please feel free to post an extra comment if you are local and do stop in to visit NEVA Co in the next week.  And the lucky winner of the two tickets to see Gamelan Sekar Jaya at the North Columbia School House is Maria Ryan.

    Outside Inn sent me via facebook. I do not live near your wonderful Boutique.
    But, I would like to win your necklace to give to me my mom, whose name is “Neva.”

    I love to jewelry that is hand made with everyday items, like buttons! This store seems like they that the odds and ends of items and turn them into beautiful art work. What a unique necklace, i love the buttons and the white flower that looks like it might of been part of a hair clip at some point. Can not wait to check out the store when we visit!!!

    my favourite hand crafted item – is the beatiful cards I receive from my friend Erin – always lovely to open the letterbox and find a card all the way from the USA. The time that goes into a hand made and posted letter are appreciated 🙂

    I’m coming to Nevada City this week–I subscribe to the blog because I love it and watch it from afar. I LOVE that necklace and will be sure to stop in and see Neva Co when I come–I’ll be there a week and Erin’s blog always gives me ideas of what’s new and what to see. Would love to win the necklace and wear it myself.

    Can’t wait to check out this shop in person! The necklace is lovely!
    My favorite handmade item I have is a pair of Christmas angel ornaments that were handmade by one of my aunts many, many years ago. My Mom gifted me with them because she knew how special they were to me.

    Most often the handmade crafts that catch my eye are the ones that mix mediums and old and new together. But, I have to say the ones I currently love the most are the ones my mom makes for my daughter Ciara. recently she returned home form their long stay in Mexico. She had spent hours knitting this vibrant fuzzy pink bear with a multi color scarf. Her name is Rosa and Ciara sleeps with her every night. Every time I see Rosa she makes me smile!
