Announcement    🎶👯‍♀️🎶Welcome to the Roaring Twenties🎶👯‍♂️🎶
The theme for the shop this year is the Roaring Twenties, an era full of renewal and celebration. The 1920s were a time of freedom and growth sandwiched between the World Wars; when being alive and at peace gave over to a celebratory atmosphere. Women especially found a newfound liberty. Women’s suffrage had just won them the right to vote. They were gaining more independence than ever before, and this was reflected in the ditched corsets, the rising hemlines of the flappers, and the head wraps and wide leg trousers of the Bohemians.

Not everything was quite so rosy, of course. This era is known for it’s mafias and speak-easies, after all. There was crime, excess, hardship, and oppression. Many nationalities, religions, and skin colors continued to be unjustly persecuted. There is no romanticizing that.

But my focus for the year is the enormous creative growth that took place in the 20’s. The Jazz Age, the Harlem Renaissance, the Art Deco movement, the lingering influences of Art Nouveau, the Bright Young Things of London, all are my inspiration. So much writing, music, art, architecture, design and fashion is instantly recognizable from this decade. I barely know where to begin!

What can you expect to see in the shop? Headbands, fascinators, and hats, of course. But there will also be a jewelry line appearing in late spring celebrating Egyptomania and Art Deco. There will be fur stoles, wraps, and a cocoon coat or two. Silk and feather fans are coming, as are beaded handbags. And I am returning to my crafting roots and bringing the monsters back. Look for themed Wibbly Woos celebrating the glitz and glam of the era very soon.

It is my hope that we are entering our own Roaring Twenties. A time of celebrating being alive after some very hard years. What better way to celebrate?

So take a slant around the joint to know your onions and get you something spiffy. Whether it be a lid for your noodle, some ice and marbles for your pipes, or some glad rags to ankle around in, you’ll find something to make you feel like the cat’s pajamas. You’ll be a right choice bit of calico, ya follow?

*****************************************************************************************************************************

Custom orders of all sorts are always welcome, whether they be in this year's shop theme or not. Need a monster? I'm your girl. Have a crazy idea for a piece of jewelry or headwear? Bring it on. I love a good challenge, and I love the inspiration my customers bring me even more. Message me with that idea that been percolating and I'll get straight to work.

Attention fellow Cincinnatians! My studio, located in Walnut Hills at Essex Art Studios, is always open to you by appointment. Please message me to schedule your visit for trying on hats and perusing materials and blocks for custom orders.

On Etsy since 2008

"I Dwell in Possibility" - Emily Dickenson

Abby Langdon is a textile artist who resides in the West side of Cincinnati with her husband, two kids, two dogs, and three cats. Langdon studied photography and fine art, among other things, at Northern Kentucky University. Her textile art, photographs and sculptures have been exhibited in both solo and group shows throughout the region. She is perhaps best known for her work in the indie craft world under the name “abbydid” for her plush creatures. Langdon's plush has appeared in magazines, group exhibits, a myriad of craft shows across the country and is owned by collectors around the world.

Always eager to learn something new in the textile world, Abby Langdon has recently discovered the art of millinery. Hat making, as it turns out, is simply yet another form of soft sculpture. While her monsters, gallery work, and headwear may seem disparate, they actually have much in common in construction and methodology.

Langdon works out of Essex Art Studios, #108, in a divine space that is meant for nothing but creativity. Swing by for a visit, especially during the quarterly art walks.
