NEW! Beautiful handcrafted books & albums by Rag & Bone.

In our quest to find products of exceptional quality and design, Rag & Bone Bindery’s offerings of books and albums truly stand out from the rest.

From Rag & Bone:
“Each book is created solely by hand: the fabrics and papers are cut by hand, the boards (covers) are glued and wrapped by skilled bookbinders. Rag & Bone albums are each drilled and sewn by hand one-at-a-time, and our journals and other bindings are assembled using traditional bookbinding tools and techniques. We use acid-free papers for all of our books. And just as important, our skilled bookbinders create books which are well-bound, and made to last.” Why are we crazy about these products? Rag & Bone has perfected the bookbinding process - from sourcing the textiles from designers and fashion houses worldwide, to the bookbinding assembly process, and a final inspection to ensure that each item is perfectly bound - the quality of craftsmanship is evident in the end product.

From scrapbooks to store your mementos and photos, baby’s 1st year books to document your little one's firsts, recipe journals for the chef/baker in your life, and wedding/bridal shower books to record those special details, we are sure you'll find something to love! We hope you enjoy these darling Rag & Bone products as much as we enjoyed hand-choosing each item for our shop.

Coming Soon: Beehive Kitchenware

While we were in New York earlier this year doing purchasing for our shop, we stumbled upon Beehive Kitchenware at the Javits Convention Center and met one of the two owners, Sandra Bonazoli. The handmade-with-love products were absolutely darling, and once she explained their production process and the quality of the materials used, we were just smitten and could not resist adding their products to the Modest Peach collection!

Beehive Kitchenware is a boutique company based out of Massachusetts. Each and every one of their products are designed and produced by the husband+wife team with superb quality materials. They were inspired by “the industrious little creatures that work hard to build their own homes,” and their products “are intended to be the finishing touches that make a house a special nest.” Don’t you just love that philosophy? We sure do!

It’s hard to choose a favorite among this collection of distinct and stylish pieces, but the baby spoons require mentioning. The Beehive Kitchenware baby spoons are created with lead-free materials and are meant to be treasured and passed down through generations. With proper care, these spoons can last more than a lifetime of use – this is the purpose that Beehive had in mind when creating this product.

If baby spoons are not in your foreseeable future, we also carry other items that will positively add charm to your kitchen. Beehive’s measuring spoons are their most coveted items and loved by all; the cheese markers will add that special touch to your buffet table; and the solid maple cheese board engraved with two wrens is perfect for entertaining. Check out our shop for other kitchen, tabletop and baby products! We’re sure you will find an item or two that you would love to have as part of your home.

NEW! Japanese washi tape in pretty colors & patterns!

We are excited to announce that Modest Peach now offers a collection of Washi Tape or Japanese Masking Tape in many shades of pretty!  Check it out in the Stationery department : )

What is Washi Tape?

It is a high-quality masking tape made of rice paper, a material that is naturally beautiful and functional at the same time. You can tear it, stick it, write on it, reposition it, repeat. The low-tack adhesive makes it extremely easy to use (and re-use). The most popular uses are for scrapbooking, art journaling, card-making, embellishing gift packaging, and home decor, though you can pretty much use it for anything your heart desires.

What is your favorite way to use Washi Tape?  Let us know in the comments!

NEW! Letterpress Stationery from Austin Press & Smock.

Hello all you lovely people! We just added some letterpress stationery items from two of our favorite companies - Austin Press & Smock.

Austin Press designs are inspired by old books, vintage ephemera, Victorian typefaces, and all sorts of whimsy! Creative genius and artisan, Kimberly Austin creates beautifully hand-crafted stationery that can be cherished forever. Each exquisite piece of work has been printed and assembled by Kimberly herself using a 19th century old-style letterpress in her San Francisco studio. We are proud to offer the works of this talented artisan in our shop!

We at Modest Peach are in love with all things pretty, and the Smock stationery line has completely won us over with prints of some of our favorite items: cupcakes, bicyclettes, champagne, and even hippos! With so many fun and quirky designs to choose from in oh-so-pretty colors, you're definitely in for a whole lot of paper eye candy. One other thing that we love about Smock is their commitment to being a truly green letterpress print shop, being the first and only print shop in the U.S. to offer printing on sustainable and 100% renewable luxuriously thick bamboo paper.

In a world of e-mail and texts, we can't think of anything that shows gratitude and appreciation more than a beautiful hand written note on an elegantly textured letterpress card printed on the finest quality paper.

Keep checking our website periodically, as we will be adding more home decor and stationery items in the very near future. Have you been swooning over one or more of our products? Is there anything you would like to see from us in the future? Let us know! We are open to any and all of your suggestions!
