Made in Michigan, Shop for the Holidays: Word Mug
Traverse City artist Kelly Nogoski finds plain white mugs at reuse shops then decorates them with words that seem to sweeten the coffee—or as Nogoski explains them: “Not too sticky, something that gets right to the heart of the matter, but with a surprising turn of phrase or openness about it. Certain things just hit me. Those things are on the mugs.” $9. Etsy.com/kngo.
