Little Blue Dish shop (formerly the Product Gallery) is an e-commerce store specializing in tabletop and home furnishings. Lynn personally edits and selects her favorite pieces based on her 17 years experience in prop styling for national magazines and brings them all together in one shop. Most items are minimal in design, especially dishes. Lynn believes when you allow the food to be the main focus and your serving piece be the background, your recipe shines. Our team sources globally, from Japan to Italy to Columbia as well as the United States, so that we may bring you the finest quality products from around the world. We invite you to browse, discover and trust in our craftsmen’s design. We are committed to providing excellent service to each of our clients and welcome your comments or suggestions.
Little Blue Dish blog focuses on Color Palettes. Sharing stylist tips, new products, table setting and entertaining ideas, interviews with industry professionals, real weddings and vendor resources, Lynn transports her love and experience of working within a color palette, editing and styling into an accessible lifestyle resource.
