1. Mad Champagne's hand-painted champagne bottles. $$
What we love: these bottles are completely customizable from the type of champs to the beautiful hand-painting by the artist Madeline Flynn! Prices typically from range $65 - $115.
Meet the maker:
Hi there! My name is Madeline Flynn and I live in Lexington, KY! This lil hobby of mine started out after seeing a photo of a painted champagne bottle and how I wanted one of my own. After not being able to find the original artist, I took it into my own hands and did it myself. I’ve always painted things and signs for friends and family, so this is just an extension of that. Insp comes from the customer and the bottle itself and however they plan to use it! As for my favorite champagne?
I love Veuve, but I’m not picky!
