To overcompensate for the fact that I am not crafty, I try to support local artists the best I can by purchasing their goods. This is reason #745 why it’s great to live in the Bay Area: lots and lots of artists. If money were no object, I’d buy up entire inventories from these people. (Sadly, though, this is not my reality. If it is yours, I encourage you to buy me any of these things. ☺)
Here are some of my favorites:
Petit Collage offers modern, stylish pieces that work well in any child’s room.
Recently, the artist Lorena Siminovich added this bird mobile to her collection.
Artist Jenny Rinzler has an amazing eye for color, fabrics, and clean lines. Through her company, Ciuccio, which means binky/pacifier in Italian, she makes and sells quilts. Her loveys are also adorable.
Speesees clothes are some of the softest around. Each item is made of 100% organic and dye free cotton. I’ve been eyeing this dress for sometime now. You really can’t go wrong with one of their jumpers either.
You many send any or all of these items to my home address.
