At Nod, we love collaborating with artists of all kinds. Many of the artists we partner with sell their goods on Etsy. So it made perfect sense for us to participate in the first Etsy Open Call in July. Thirty Etsy Wholesale designers showcased their lines to a number of retailers, including us. We met all the sellers, learned about their products and gave feedback. Ultimately, we picked a handful of retailers to sell their products in our stores and online.

Lovelane’s Lane Huerta began dreaming big as a child. She imagined great adventures in the woods behind her house. During her adult years she discovered her imagination and skill of screen-printing gave her a penchant for a bright, blocky aesthetic. She set up shop as Lovelane Designs in Savannah, Georgia and began designing and screen-printing tea towels, pillows and other home décor.
