Were you ‘lucky’ enough to get to travel to Mackinac Island with us this month? This box was sew charming and packed with some new and exciting products you might have never seen before! We can’t get enough of how stunning the fabric is in this scrappy table runner. A show stopper for sure! Let’s unpack this box together and see what was included.
Named for one of Minick & Simpson’s favorite places, Mackinac Island warms us through winter with hearty red, white and blues. Full of broad strips and bright stars, Laurie Simpson has also sprinkled in some wonderful dots, florals and ginghams for good measure.
