9th & Elm: Handmade and Independent Designs

I was recently introduced to 9th & Elm - a flash site made up of handmade designs by independent artists. Featuring everything from tees, to jewelry, to decor, there are so many great products available in a wide range of prices.

Being a lover of monograms and personalized gifts, I picked up the following items:

Personalized Classic Jar Glass Set - four monogrammed mugs

I got this as a housewarming gift for a friend, and selected her and her husband's last name initial. I'm really impressed with the quality. They're very country chic, look great, and my friend loved them! I'm tempted to buy more as Christmas presents for friends and family.

Personalized Large Mouth Cooler Bag - monogrammed insulated cooler

For summer, I also picked up a small cooler to use for day trips. When I got my bag, it had a leak. I contacted customer service and received a replacement within the week. Really great service! Unfortunately the replacement had the same issue. Too bad because the cooler is cute with the monogram and the perfect size (I took the first one to a baseball game and the second to the beach).

With so many products on the site, you're sure to find the right item for you. While I can't recommend the cooler, I cant say enough about the mugs. If you are a fan of handmade and independent designs, be sure to check out 9th & Elm. Shipping is always free in the US!
