When Avoca was first introduced to me a couple months ago, I thought it was right up my alley! The kitschy line started in the 1700's manufacturing natural fibre rugs, throws & scarves. Avoca has grown significantly and now includes an entire line of housewares including linens, pottery, candles and cookbooks. They also have a gorgeous woman's collection called Avoca Anthology. With several Avoca stores in Ireland (and they have cafe's too), the collection will now be available in boutiques throughout Canada and the US. Think Anthropology meets Free People meets grandma's little teacups!
