Koide Studio

A little goes a long way with this talented ceramic artist Koide Studio. Her pieces are flawless, japanese style, with balance and simplicity. Who doesn't want more of that in their life. The best things about her items is that they're functional. She is always coming out with another delightful glaze and we now have fresh work of hers in our shop. Take a look at these babies! They look like candy now don't they? Have your house guest eat cereal out of these bowls and they'll love you forever. Heck, everyone needs to have a little bit of color in their life, why not start with the morning.
Anyways, Koide Studio makes whimsical, clean, perfected items. There's no love missing from any of her pieces. She doesn't like huge bulky handles on her cups, so she's been making darling knobs, that might be an innovation to the future.

Applesauce Gals

These adorable clothes are handmade by two pretty sisters. They are adorable! The sweetest ladies you’ll ever meet! One is a mommy that tries all she can to not take the clothes and put them on her own children. She has a beautiful smile and is so in tuned with everything. The other sister falls in love with fashion, stores like Anthropologie and sports a black coat in the winter time, to flatter her beautiful complexion.
The material of these children clothes: Are handpicked vintage finds, washed, loved and carefully and aesthetically reworked, into beautiful handmade kids outfits! Almost everything they have is reversible. The style is very whimsical. Some of the jackets conceal hidden treasure pockets. The only thing I wish is they made clothes in women size.

MaeBee you'll find one truly for you!

Are you a busy working woman? You just want to have goregous simple jewelry to accompany and stay with you throughout day. You don't have time for the chunky and funky jewelery? Make way for this beautiful mama to make you these durable charm on the wrists, they won't get in the way of you typing something. Almost everyone I know, wants one and her prices are afforable. It amazes me that she has time to make these gentle pretty pieces and still has time to take care of her kids.

Marci Delight!

Look at this golden nugget of goodness. Plenty more of graceful colors at our store, this vibrant adventurous woman came in with a ziest for life and it shows in her work. Her aunt passed and gave her tons of valuable porcelain, that are expensive to buy today. She decided to make more than one use of these delicate one of kind dishes and transform these pieces into natural art. Put a little spice in your home, or in someones life by getting one of these babies. It doesn't matter if you're known as a plant killer, these plants sing for days. Even long time from now, if they ever past, you'll have a beautiful cup to drink from.

If one talent was all you thought she had, think again. This luminous capable Marci Hayden rocks little and big houses, made with bottle wine corks, from all local wineries if I might add. She gets the corks from her dinner parties. Also all the gals at her local community gym, donate corks to her too. Then she plays love match maker with the rocks, finding rocks that perfectly fit with eachother and transforms the two mediums into charming casas.

That is so KOOOL-WALD.

Actually it's Caitlin Kuhwald. This is a staff and customer favorite out of her collection. She's an instructor at CCAC in Oakland, teaching illustration. Miss popular throughout the bay with both students and buyers. There's a certain spazz and class about her nifty art. These prints she makes are affordable now and would be fabulous for the house or a gift. We also got some rad buttons from her, if you feel like wearing art all day with a cause. She has a line of self portraits, inspiring friends and makes things anyone can relate to. Come to our store and fall in love with Caitlin. Well not literally though, because she's getting married very soon and we're so excited!

Yay for Mandy!

One of our artists is getting ready for the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco! July 18th-19th 11am-7pm. She has been sewing for sixteen hours a day, while training for a triathlon and taking care of her two kids. Just like us, she is overwhelmed. I hope she sells everything in her booth. In the mean time, come to our store to check out some of her new creations. Everything is hand dyed and stitched with warmth and imagination. Lots of love and luck her way!

Wooden Treasures.

Real silver. Dwellling and wonder about what happened to the wood with silver details is over. The moment is now, the moment is here. Quality unique wood for your home or kitchen is available and is being caressed by authentic silver. Each of the wooden pieces have their own different personalities. Some of the wood has a happy golden sheen while others are warm with intricate details. The darker wood seems to go with everything and has a beautiful yet humble prestigous quality. All of it is bought from Venezuela in fair trade. Looks so good, I'm sure your father would approve.
