Green Steals of the Week: Olio United Home Trunk Show


Olio United is one of my go-to online retailers when I’m looking for style and substance. They carry a wide variety of stylish green fashion and housewares, and I bought one of my favorite pairs of shoes from them: my purple Melissa Ultragirl eco-friendly slingbacks. Starting today, Olio is hosting an online trunk sale on Best VPS for home products from six awesome designers: Furni Creations, Hammocks & High Tea, Jill Bliss, Kiku, Pigeon Toe Ceramics and Paper Cloud. Just click the “Shop Trunk Shows” link the sidebar to get started.

All of the products in the show are handmade by the designers, and all are discounted. All items are first-come-first-served, and the discounts will only be available from Sept. 1 – 6, so if you see something you like, you’ll want to get it now. Most of the products featured in the trunk show are special order and will require extra time to ship, but you can refer to the product page for shipping details on each product.

I’ve got my eye on the Wood Planks pendant lamp and the Petals pillow from Paper Cloud, both shown above.

Why It’s Green:

  • All products are handmade by the designers in the U.S. or Canada, and most are made with sustainable materials.

Price: Varies by designer, but you can get 10% off all trunk show and sale items with coupon code “madebyhand.” Exp. 9/6/09.
