Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!


As you probably know, I love to support local artisans. Their passion for their craft is so inspirational. One of the best ways to discover new makers, is to attend craft shows that have been popping up all over the place. This weekend was one of my favorites, the Renegade Craft Fair. I found so many new, wonderful companies and visited some of my old favorites.

Don't worry if you didn't go, I found the best makers at the festival for you below. Also, don't miss the West Coast Craft Festival on December 5th and 6th and pick up some wonderful holiday presents.

Good Company - Portland, OR

I love these cute little succulent buckets. They also have larger buckets to store things around the house. I am a big fan of their minimal yet colorful designs.

Home Sweet Flowers - San Francisco, CA

I just loved these wreaths. The combination of succulents, cuttings and feathers was very inspirational. I  think that these would make a wonderful holiday present. 

Pickle Pottery - Sierra Nevada Foothills, CA

I have had my eye on this pottery studio for a few craft fairs now. The gritty texture of the glaze paired with shiny gold drawings is pure perfection. I didn't buy this time but that plate is on my wish list!

Unurth Home - Los Angeles, CA

In the chaos of the fair, we came upon this booth and were instantly soothed. The ocean-inspired pottery pieces have a San Diego feel. I loved the organic shapes and textures. Jenn, the ceramist, was there and was equally as lovely.

P.F. Candle Co. - Oakland, CA

I am such a sucker for a good candle. It seems like every local shop I visit these days has these candles in stock. I picked up a Campfire candle that smells woodsy and smokey and is the closest substitute for the real thing.

Post Studio - CA

Looking for a great gift? These high gloss trays and coasters have been featured in Real Simple, Elle Decor and Dwell magazine. I think the geometric design would fit perfectly into my home ;-)
