Without online shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane-wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of beeswax candles, organic fabric care, and sleepwear from Periwinkle Rose.
Periwinkle Rose, an online boutique founded by a former costume designer, is filled with quality handmade garments and eco-friendly home goods from Big Dipper Wax Works and Forever New. Change up nighttime clothing routines with a pair of print pajama pants ($30–$45) or impress fellow insomniacs in your clinical sleep study with psychedelic pajama pants ($30–$45). Customers wishing to keep their new sleepwear in tiptop condition can peruse a variety of all-natural fabric-care products, from La Bouquetiere fabric softener ($18.50) to Forever New granular wash ($3.50–$15), a nontoxic, organic, and biodegradable formula designed to safely clean and prolong the life of clothing.
The hand-dipped Big Dipper Wax Works candles that Periwinkle Rose carries are mostly derived from the wax of Pacific Northwest bees, which are raised in a low-pesticide-use region. Candles from its Herb Garden Collection ($6–$14.50) are packaged in a biodegradable planting pot made from bamboo husks and rice hulls, and come with herb seeds that can be used to grow a fragrant herb garden that will mask the scent of almost any pet wolverine.
