Holiday Traditions: Bauble Stockings
Have you heard of Bauble Stockings? The tradition began with Bauble Stocking’s owner, Kate. Her mom received the last gift of Christmas from her husband and kids and it symbolized a “thank you” for the work she did through the holiday season. You can read more about the tradition here.
Our PK Padlock is the perfect gift to include in your Bauble Stocking this year. It symbolizes the gift of a PK trunk to store all the memories and crafts from that holiday season. How fun it would be to open up your Holiday trunk and remember the good times from past holiday seasons?
This handmade, heirloom-quality ornament will be a special keepsake every year. Bauble Stocking ornaments are 100% hand-stitched in Haiti with cotton threads and oh-so-soft velvet backing. From start to finish, the attention to precise detail makes this a very special gift. Stockings come with a custom linen keepsake bag & information card.

As a reminder, we are on preorder for Pink and Navy Grands and Pink Petites. If you'd like to still gift one of these for Christmas, we can send you a Petite Peek to gift - a small gift box with a fabric sample, trunk image, and your personalization details that you can gift your gift recipient to let them know their trunk is en route!! (Perfect to include in your Bauble Stocking!)
Giving Back: Each stocking is 100% hand-stitched and finished. In 2018, production was moved to a community of single moms in Haiti. This organization, Good Threads Needlepoint, has since become a registered BCorp. The women are paid the equivalent of school teachers and nurses. They originally began stitching needlepoint belts to provide stability in their homes so their children could attend school. Since most jobs available were manual labor, these women were unable to find work so their boys kept having to drop out to make money for the family. Since beginning in 2013, not one child has had to drop out, and the community has grown to over 100 women stitchers. The community has built a school for over 120 children, many of whom will be the first person in their family to be able to complete high school. It is an honor to be able to provide good jobs in a country where jobs are hard to come by.
