If you’re in San Francisco, perhaps you’ve heard of Makers Market. If not, allow me to me introduce you. Makers Market started out as an online shop in 2014 and then as a pop-up shop during this past holiday season in the Westfield San Francisco Centre. They sell all-American goods from independent makers with the goal of preserving American craftsmanship. A few of my favorite makers are Jessica Wertz Ceramics, Etta + Billie and Scout & Whistle.
There’s so much mass-produced “Made in China” stuff out there it’s nice to see a shop entirely devoted to handcrafted items.
Over the past few years I’ve dealt with a lot of dietary issues that helped me bring awareness to not only what I eat, but also what beauty products and clothing I put on my body. It makes me so happy to see people advocating a holistic and mindful lifestyle. And what better than an entire STORE devoted to supporting American makers?!
I’m really excited for Makers Market because they just recently moved to a permanent location in the Westfield San Francisco Centre AND they’re having a grand opening party tomorrow to celebrate! They’ll still maintain the online shop, but all the deets on their new STOREFRONT are below:
The party is tomorrow, August 27th, from 5:30-7:30pm and I’ll be there if you want to stop by and say “hi!”–just make sure you RSVP here. (I stopped by the shop last week and it’s quite a gorgeous little space. ;)) See you there!
