Mark your calendars: the Gardenista and Remodelista editors and their favorite California artisans, craftspeople, and store creators will be at two-day holiday Markets at either end of the state next month. Join us:
- Los Angeles–Saturday and Sunday, December 5-6: The Remodelista Market will be in residence at Big Daddy’s Antiques at 3334 La Cienega Place near Culver City from 10 to 5 each day.
- San Francisco–Saturday and Sunday, December 12-13: The Remodelista Market will be in the factory space at Heath Ceramics at 2900 18th Street in the Mission from 10 to 5 Saturday and from 11 to 3 Sunday.
The assembled talents will include up-and-coming stars as well as long-time favorites who have graced the pages of Gardenista and Remodelista: a one-stop holiday shop. See you there (we’ll be doing our shopping at the Markets, too).
Here are a few of the innovators who will be on hand:
Above: At the LA Market, meet Beth Katz, whose Mt. Washington Pottery is informed by Japanese aesthetics, Scandinavian modernism, and her 1970s childhood in Topanga Canyon (pictured: Peace Bells).
Above: At the LA and SF Markets, get to know Napa-based Heritage Culinary Artifacts, created by Lisa Minucci, whose collection of vintage European cookware and furniture has wowed Remodelista and Gardenista editors for years.
Above: Design innovators Carly Nance and Rachel Bentley, creators of The Citizenry, sell their fair-trade products “with a soul and a story” online–except when the Remodelista Markets are in town. (Pictured: Adia planters, hand-carved in Uganda.)
Above: Michael Paratore discovered the original Mohinder, a hip, comfortable, durable crepe-soled leather sandal, on a trip to Mumbai. And then he quit his job as a corporate lawyer to track down the artisans who made the shoe–he calls it a “city slipper”–and bring it to the US. Meet Michael and your next favorite shoe in LA and SF.
Above: True Nature Botanicals, created by Mill Valley-based Hillary Peterson, believes that great skin begins with what you put on it. In the case of the Pacific Face Oil, that means natural ingredients such as chia, kiwi, and rose hip seed oils. Hillary, a melanoma and thyroid cancer survivor, will be in LA and SF with her complete line.
