Collection: NIAD Holiday Gift Guide #4: "SISTER SISTER" selected by Amanda and Sarah Eicher

About the collection

SISTER SISTER: a gift guide from one coast to the other

Some people think we look alike; others think our voices sound the same, and still others mistake us for each other - but do we have the same taste?

We definitely swapped clothes, jewelry, sneakers, and a few items we argued over as tiny pups in the world.

In this selection, I tried to choose for my sister a few of the things I think she might have borrowed from my childhood bedroom - or that I’d want to borrow from hers. (Unsurprisingly, we chose a few of the same items the first time around!)

As the younger sibling, I have always been influenced by my sister (positively for the most part - although she did once convince me to help "clean" our mother's VW seats with Vaseline when we were wee kids...) so I am sure that at least 50% of my great taste comes from Amanda. 

That said, the items below fall into the category of "I Love Them So Much I Want Them For Myself, But Would Also Happily Gift Them To My Sister (and Then Borrow From Her...)"

About the collectors

Sarah Eicher became a NIAD lover in 2015, when she visited NIAD on a family trip and fell in love with Heather Copus’s Kiss-inspired soft sculptures and silkscreens. 

Currently, Sarah Eicher is the Director of Human Resources for the Pennsylvania State Senate Democrats, and she lives in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania - although she’s always got one eye open to what’s happening in NIAD’s studios.

Amanda Eicher is NIAD’s Executive Director, and has been a fan of NIAD since joining the staff as a facilitator in 2015. 

They have been sisters since 1977, when Sarah joined Amanda as a partner-in-crime, roller-skating buddy, and all-around confidante.
