Happy year of the Rat everyone! With the Lunar New Year upon us, I’m so happy to find this adorable new Etsy shop, which celebrates all things dumplings. Only, not the edible kind, so if you’re low-carbing right now, you’re in luck.
Christine Jee has filled DumplingMart with adorable handmade wool dumplings to honor her own Korean heritage. (Because of course, Lunar New Year isn’t exclusively a Chinese celebration.) Right now the shop includes a small but nicely curated array of dumplings — a 10-pack perfect for toddler play food, an ornament, a magnet, and surely more to come.
Plus, ooh…I love her Valentine’s Day offerings!
Right in time to celebrate your sweet sugar dumpling you’ll find Dumpling Valentines packaged in mini bamboo steamers, which have stolen my pun-loving heart. So cute for kids — well, depending on the message — or of course, your sweetheart.
They’re emblazoned with messages like: I Have Fillings for You. Soy Into You. You’re the Won(Ton) for Me. Hot & Steamy.
Just be sure to order from DumplingMart by 2/7 for 2020 Valentine’s delivery, or you could be stuck with some last-minute card rack option.
