Introducing the Handmade Charlotte Collection – Donated to Support Imagination in Schools Everywhere!

We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Handmade Charlotte, the brand that has become a daily source for DIY craft projects for kids, recipes, and inspiring ideas for creative family living.  Their dedication to “finding the magic in everyday life” is why millions of readers visit the well loved indie publication every month. 

rachel-faucettWe met Rachel Faucett, the owner and creator of Handmade Charlotte and quickly became fans of each other!  Rachel started her business with a handmade clothing line on Etsy and quickly grew her brand along with her husband Jonathan into an award winning platform that has earned massive amounts of media attention from the largest and hippest publications in the world.  Their mantle worthy tutorials and gorgeous imagery have earned Handmade Charlotte a spot on numerous Best Of lists. 

Rachel, Jonathan, and their team of super creatives have quite the client roster – Martha Stewart, Bet­ter Homes and Gar­dens, HGTV, Anthropologie, Tea Collection, Target, Ford, HP, Ikea, Levi’s, Fiskars, Home Depot, and now Schoola!   Rachel’s love of Schoola’s mission and desire to financially support creativity in our nations schools was the spark that launched this campaign. 

So without further a do…

We are proud to launch the “Handmade Charlotte” collection on!  The mother of 5 has generously contributed over 500 items that were either handmade by her own hands or straight out of her Outgrown Give Away bin. The collection is a huge treasure chest full of one of a kind vintage, handmade, patched up pieces that are mixed with every day staples that we know you will love! You’ll have a blast digging through Rachel’s donated closet and will find some gems for sure. The handmade pieces and charming embellishments give you a glimpse into the couples colorful life on their horse farm in Georgia.  

Ring The Bell – This is the first time that proceeds from items sold on Schoola are being sent to the shoppers’ school rather than the donors’.  Handmade Charlotte + Schoola love all children everywhere! Simply enter your school name when you buy and YOUR school will receive a portion of the proceeds!

And when you thought the deals in this sale couldn’t get any better we decided to put a little more icing on the cake!  We’re giving away a special treat for the first 150 shoppers. If your lucky enough to be in that rock star  group you will receive –  FolkArt Handmade Charlotte stencil sets  that can be used to personalize your new frocks!


We couldn’t be more excited about introducing this fun collaboration to you. When great minds think alike amazing things happen!  Now what are you waiting for? Jump over to shop the looks before they’re gone!
