Of a Kind, the fashion startup that creates limited-edition awesomeness with emerging designers, is expanding to home and kids. Why home and kids? "Because, well, we want prettier things for our apartments from really cool makers and, like everyone else, get all gushy when we see adorable baby clothes!" founder Erica Cerulo told us. "We also think both categories are just so stellar for gifting, which we love."
So now, in addition to shopping for the gold macaroni necklace you never knew you wanted, you can pick up things like the Object + Totem bottle vase above, which launched for $36 earlier this week and is already sold out. The first kids edition is landing later this spring. When we asked Erica what else they had planned, here's what that sassy lass had to say: "Right now, we're just trying out a few editions to see what kind of response we get—so buy stuff, and we'll do more!" You heard the lady.
