We strive to share beauty three ways

  • • Handmade Leather Bags

    Every leather bag is handmade in our upstairs studio at Turtle Ridge. Some bags have embossed and handpainted designs, others are finished with more contemporary elements like hair-on cowhide, textured or patent leather.

  • • Multi Media Art

    Our gallery is a very magical space, filled with Mary Ellen Sisulak's art work in rich mixed media, textural encaustics and whimsical etchings. One gets lost for hours exploring nature elements becoming alive.

  • • Natural Fiber Clothing

    We curate very carefully every designer we bring in to the boutique. Love for natural fibers is very strong throughout the store. We look for quality, timeless clothing, but artistic and outstanding design.

Feels like Fall

Art by Mary Ellen Sisulak

Once A Pond A Time

When the water lilies are just blooming, you and your dearest friend are kayaking, drifting into a
quiet pond. The paddles dip into the water, breaking the mirror-like calm surface. The strokes
disturb the small fishes playing at the bottom of the pond awakening the turtles lying on the
fallen tree basking in then sun.
“What happened?”
The bravest turtle general finally couldn’t hold back his curiosity. He sneaked into the water and
followed your kayak. He stuck his head out of the water.
“Oh, it’s just a visiting tourist”....
But you. The world of dreams opens it’s door for you. You become a dragonfly lilting through
the air. You are immersed in this beautiful world, indulged in this melodious habitat. You are
lost in this peaceful dream...
