These glossy, 7"x9" white ceramic plaques not only cute-ify their corner of the wall, they make a handy reference when a baby once again forgets his or her name. Proud parents and proud friends of proud parents can choose the shape, font, and text color for the name plaque and the particular polka-dot bow that is used to hang the keepsake on the bedroom wall or the false trapdoor-trigger candlestick. The $36 value of this deal can also be applied toward other items on the site, such as a clay pet paw print ($50), garden stones ($70–$90), and full-on imprinted plaques ($55).
Casablanca Market brings its collection of leather ottomans, hand-painted tables, Berber pillows, intricate mirrors, Moroccan tea glasses and tagines as they arrive stateside straight from the hands of Moroccan artisans, many of whom learned their skills as a family tradition. Hand-painted chairs and hand-woven carpets enliven rooms with vibrant colors and boast unique designs, unlike template rugs sewn by unimaginative robots.

The market follows fair-trade practices to ensure artisans receive good compensation for their work and have their pay in hand before their goods ship overseas.
