Christmas in California, anyone? This week we’re bound for LA, where we’ll be hosting a Holiday Market at Big Daddy’s Antiques (join us and make a kokedama with Michelle!). We’ll also detour to Marin County for a net-zero ranch, have holiday cocktails in a rooftop greenhouse, and offer tips for a DIY tree skirt (a future family heirloom?).
We’re excited to co-host our first Remodelista Market with Terrain as our partner. (Join us on Saturday from 10 to 5, at Big Daddy’s Antiques. Details here.)
