Sidelines Spotlight: Magpie and Jay

Article by Ulrika

Halloween is not technically part of the holiday season but is still one of my favorites. This month, to highlight my love of dark, creepy things, we are featuring vintage-inspired pieces from Magpie and Jay’s New Curios collection.

Last year, when we introduced Magpie and Jay to the Brazos repertoire, we featured their nervous system mugs and journals. The items were cartoonish and had bold colors, but offered something beyond literary merchandise. This year, I wanted to focus on the New Curios line, which has more of a gothic, hand-painted look.

Each mug, including the Green Beetle and Bee, is made from fine porcelain china with decorative handles and is also microwave and dishwasher safe. To me, it’s always important for products to not only be beautiful but functional—this is china that can be used! Each mug also includes a decorative box with full color illustrations.
