Hogs on Design*Sponge

Modish, a website that features handmade goods, wrote a feature article for Design Sponge showcasing affordable art under $50 and selected our very beloved Hedgehogs as one of their favorite items! See them here on Design*Sponge. "Design*Sponge is a daily website dedicated to home and product design run by Brooklyn-based writer, Grace Bonney. Launched in August of 2004, Design*Sponge features store and product reviews, sale and contest announcements, new designer profiles, trend forecasting and store/studio tours. In addition, Design*Sponge features a unique section dedicated to covering student design, national and international design shows. The site is updated constantly throughout the day (with an average of 6-10 posts a day), and attracts a core group of devoted readers. Design*Sponge currently has over 30,000 daily readers."
Be sure to visit the Jena Coray's Modish site as well (link above). "Modish is a daily blog celebrating handmade goods, the people who create them and the shoppers that buy them, run by Jena Coray. Modish (pronounced: mō'dĭsh) means stylish, and was created in April 2006 to present handmade goods as stylish, practical and unique alternatives to the hum-drum and homogeneous mass-produced goods that we are inundated with on a daily basis. Featuring handmade product reviews and guides, a huge monthly giveaway and a variety of columns that let us peek into the lives of the people behind the handmade movement, Modish seeks to inspire its readers with independent art and design and encourage them to buy handmade, whenever they can."

They have a really great online shop specializing in handmade goods as well, located here. Be sure to visit! Thanks Jena:)
