Drawn by hand, to give or keep.

Girls Can Tell gift co. is a line of useful gifts featuring the original, hand drawn illustrations of Sara Selepouchin.

Every tea towel that we print (we have over 100 designs now!) is hand-drawn by Sara, sourced responsibly, and then printed with pride at our queer-owned print shop in Camden, New Jersey.

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Sara's years of mechanical drawing experience and degree in architecture, along with her love of fun, useful gifts, are the primary inspirations behind the Girls Can Tell collection. She began making annotated drawings of everyday objects we love and fun then printing them onto useful things in 2005, and hasn't stopped since. The belief that surrounding yourself with things that make you smile is important is what it's all about.

Shop members

  • Sara Selepouchin

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    Girls Can Tell gift co. is the brainchild of Sara Selepouchin. When she's not busy in the studio, Sara loves running, craft beer, finding great products for her South Philly boutique (Occasionette) and making funny faces at her husband, Erik.

  • Adam Woods


    Adam gets Sara's illustrations printed onto the tea towels that end up in your hands. Adam has been printing for over 20 years. When he's not at the shop, he's probably kayaking with his daughter. Adam is queer AF.

  • Emily


    Emily keeps things running smoothly at our shop and handles our shipping and receiving like the pro she is.

  • Janie Dog

    Chief Cute Officer

    Janie's primary function is to make Sara smile when towels are somehow stressing her out.
