Over the last few months the Lake Ella family has had the pleasure of adding Julie Guyot’s pottery studio and Yarn Therapy into the community. Both shops offer handmade goods and demonsrates the specialty of crafting objects.
Julie Guyot Studio has been open since Febuary and has graced the area with nostalgic pottery ever since. Guyot displays and sells her hand crafted items while also using the cottage as her studio. The shop holds all of your dishware needs such as mugs, bowls, plates, cake stands, cutting boards, and more. All of us at Quarter Moon and at Lake Ella are very excited to have this local talented artist in our midst!
Yarn Therapy serves as a second home to many. Located in the brick house across from the cottages, Yarn Therapy sells yarn of only natural fibers and offers a variety of knitting classes. The owner, Marianne Graves, welcomes every customer or knitter with open arms into her family of knitters as if she is welcoming them into her home. Many of us can’t wait to get out our knitting needles and head over to Yarn Therapy to start on a scarf or some socks!
Contrary to popular belief, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate every “special someone” in your life. Whether it’s your best friend, mother, sibling, or cat everyone deserves to be shown how much they mean in a person’s life. At Quarter Moon we have tailored our selection of products to fit these specific Valentine gift giving needs. In the store we have everything from sentimental jewelry to sarcastic retro flasks that would definitely show the love!
In Tallahassee the color garnet may hold a sacred meaning to many, but for those born during January it is more than just a color to show some school spirit. Garnet, January’s birthstone, holds many healing properties that benefit health problems relating to the heart, blood, lungs, and infections. The birthstone also enhances sensuality and sexuality, and is associated with truth, friendship, purity, and faithfulness.
We could not be more thrilled and proud of our intern Loren, who put together a beautiful Lookbook about our fair trade merchandise. She collected and photographed products from companies such as Tesoros, Firefly, Tiger Mountain, and Culture Shop into a unique compilation that showcases jewelry, clothing, accessories, and much more.

The Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is upon us!
