Quail by Mail ... Fair Trade, Eco Friendly

Quail By Mail ClothingTop Row: Tulip Skirt, 3/4 Sleeve Shirt, Lucy Dress
Bottom Row: 1940s Shirt, Panel Skirt, Emily Dress

I am intrigued by this lovely clothing line from Britain, called Quail. Founded in late 2006 by husband and wife team Jason Clark and Shauna Chapman, they produce ethical, fair trade and eco friendly clothing for women and men. Their pieces are beautifully constructed, in gorgeous colors and prints - with amazingly reasonable prices and low, low shipping prices ... free shipping on orders over £49. (Current conversion is approximately 1 British pound = 1.48 U.S. dollars)

Quail by Mail Plushies They even have some adorable, eco friendly plushies!!

By the way, Shauna has an absolutely delicious looking recipe for Lemon Poppyseed Cake on her blog. It looks sooo yummy... or as they say in Britain, scrummy!

Profane Hilarity ... P.S. Don't play this at work or in front of children

If you ask anyone who knows me, they will tell you that I do, on occasion, use bad language. That said, I don't think I'm quite on the same level as these two guys.

(This is a hilarious YouTube mix by TheSexyPatriot, that aired on Countdown with Keith Olbermann this evening. You know me...I just had to post about it.)
