Our May Pop Up was all about macarons, coconuts, and so many new friends!
No shortage of thoughtful handmade gifts for Mom (or yourself ;) at our last Pop Up Market this past Saturday, May 12th! Jaclyn of Yellow & Lace lead our free DIY craft bar with these adorable yarn heart cards we found on Pinterest. I loved seeing everyone, of all ages, tap into their inner creative child and exploring play. I couldn't help but feel warm thinking of all the handmade cards and love notes that went out into the world after this special day.
Set up outside was OC Ecodesigns with a variety of metal succulent & floral arrangements of all shapes and sizes! The patina on these pieces are so beautiful and had me thinking they must only get more attractive with age.
Husband & wife team, Maison Esperluette were a total hit with their incredible French macarons with flavors like Chocolate Raspberry Chambord, Piña Colada, and Lavender - they had 12 different flavors in total, absolutely impossible to pick a favorite.
Coco Vinny of Coco Taps set the island vibe with his ukulele serenades & freshly tapped natural coconuts. He demonstrated his coconut opening tool on our vintage tiki bar like he did on Shark Tank & everyone was blown away by this Eco Inventor's mission to change the world, one tapped coco at a time!
Inside was Yuwei from Yuwei Designs who displayed her newest Spring jewelry collection straight from Bali, and Bama from Sixth & Co. debuted her newest custom lined sarape jackets. The perfect added layer for a beach day with one of their killer all-in-one blanket beach bags they're famous for!
It was the first Pop Up for Jess of Ox and Nag and she transformed the space with her newest collection of desert jewel tone macrame pieces; from plant hangers, coasters, to intricate backdrops. It was great to finally put a face to the name with Abbie Naber, of A. Naber Design, known for her instagram swoon worthy interior design projects. She popped up with her handmade pillows & the softest vintage textile and sherpa blankets you've ever felt.
Joining us again was our Laguna neighbor, Andrea from Laguna Herbals, with her full line of beauty & skincare using only the highest quality natural and organic ingredients. All of Laguna Herbals' ingredients are plant or mineral based and ditch any harmful or questionable chemicals found in most commercial beauty products.
Robert Brink of The Hundredth Acre, had his 100% soy wax candles handpoured here in Laguna. It's standard that he's usually the first one here setting up for the day with a pipping hot tea & lights one of his candles within minutes of putting the first box down. We love him and the scent memories his candles are telling here.
Alex of Vibe Catchers was purposely set up right by the window allowing the afternoon sun to dance across her feng shui inspired pieces. We learned more about these impressive crystal & sacred geometry adornments as equal parts healing tools and spiritual art mementos. We all loved hearing each story of all the different pieces.
We met Kristy of Mountain Gypsea for the first time and loved learning more about her eco-friendly jewelry. I was enchanted by her tale of pursuing her desire to downsize, ditching her 9 to 5 gig, and driving out west to California to follow her passion of starting her own jewelry line out of the back of her Subaru. So inspiring. We truly do attract the most incredible people.
We look forward to our next event on Saturday, June 16th! We hope you'll join us, friends!
