Josh and I are looking to expand our family.  Nope, not that way- we love using our third bedroom as a walk in closet too much to give it up to a nursery.  We are finally at the point with Tigertree where we need full time help.
We are looking for a very special person.  Someone with retail experience, but not someone who is constantly on.  We need someone who is organized enough to run the operations of a bustling shop but flexible enough to change everything when customers and the market demands.  This is an awesome opportunity to be involved with every aspect of owning a boutique- from buying and sourcing to window displays and visuals to accounting and marketing.. to dusting and washing the windows (yes, we DO do that ourselves..).  Everything!
Of course, we will still be around.  A lot.  And working on the shop just as much as ever.  We just cannot do it alone anymore. 
Josh made this flow chart to help you decide if you should send your resume over.  And yes, thinking Zach Braff is funny really is a deal breaker.  We think it points to serious personality flaws. Anyway, you can email your resume to us at

Tigertree (tree) and Toms update

I'm sure I have no idea how these birdcages that happen to be in our logo colors and match the landing page of our website ended up in the tree in front of the shop.

In other news, we have been getting a lot of calls about Toms shoes.  Which is understandable.  Toms are like combining those "This __ was given in your name" gifts with an awesome usable, tangible gift.  You should give Toms, that's what I am getting at.  We have so many styles to choose from:
For women: Grey Wool Fleck Botas, Plum Wool Cordones, Gilded Herringbone, Pomegranate, Ash, Red, Gold, Silver, Natural Burlap, and Saffron.

For men: Grey Wool Fleck Botas, Ash Wax Twill Cordones, Grey Gingham Check, Cinnamon, Grey Flannel, Olive, Black, and Ash

We are well stocked with sizes of each style, but if you want to check to make sure we have what you are looking for, or if you would like to place an order to ship, feel free to give us a call at (614) 299 2660!

We have tons of amazing winter clothes and outerwear in right now, but we should take a short detour to talk about our new gifts!  Below are my top 5.  Of course, you should check out this list to get some ideas for the holidays, but I think a lot of these items are perfect for you.. like for yourself.  Today.

I have been trying to track down these amazing hand soaps since I saw them at Cog & Pearl in Brooklyn.  They finally arrived yesterday!  Each set contains 8 tiny vegetable glycerin soaps, ranging in size from 3/4" to 2" tall.  
International Kids notebooks have 30 lined pages each.  Perfect to keep in your bag or pocket for those on the go thoughts.  (Did you know we also carry Field Notes?)
I was never allowed to buy astronaut ice cream at any museum gift shop.  I have a very practical mother. Well now I have a whole case of it.  And I will share.  
Pet Plants are back in stock!  We have succulents and tiny cacti to hang from your bag, rear-view mirror or wherever you need a little green friend.  Things are about to get pretty brown here in Columbus, so I think its perfect timing!  

I just finished up a big new batch of book belt buckles and added them to the online store yesterday.  As always, each piece is made from a real discarded book cover and is absolutely one of a kind.

Tons of other new gift items are on the gift section of the website!  Also I am here at the store with all of these treasures; stop in and say hello.

Shout out in Out (magazine)

The boys from Out magazine stopped by the store again recently en route to Hocking Hills.  They featured Tigertree and Jeni's back in the August issue of the magazine and apparently still had an itch for book belt buckles and amazing ice cream!  You can see the shout out to both on the Out Traveler website.

Quite Possibly the Best Reusable Shopping Bag Ever.

It takes a lot to impress me when it comes to reusable shopping bags.  For the last couple years, I have used my trusty flip and tumble bags; they are sturdy, compact and come in great colors.  All sorts of new reusable bags have come onto the market and I have not batted an eye; until now.
Meet the amazingly adorable bunny bags!  We just got these in today in 10 colors!  The bag measures a perfect 14" wide by 13" with an external front pocket.   The back of the bunny hides a zipper which allows you to stuff the bag into its belly when it is not in use.  My favorite part is that the bunny keeps its shape even without the bag, so you always have a little friend running errands with you.
Perfect for shoppers with kids or people who just like looking awesome.  As always, more details on
