Who doesn't love gifts?

For me, a happy morning begins by sipping hot coffee, cranking up good music and searching through my map collection to create unique gifts that will make someone's day! I make everything for Hip Little Squares in my home in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. My shop brings me a lot of joy and I love connecting with people from all over the world.

After a career in education, I'm happy to now have even more time to create and to pursue other things I love...traveling with my really fun husband, hiking, poking around in thrift stores, and singing.

Thanks for stopping by and for your interest in Hip Little Squares. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to message me with any questions or comments. Many thanks also for your ongoing social media support - I truly appreciate every pin, share and post!

Thank you,
