May Pop Up Market!

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.

November Pop Up Market!

Recap of our November Pop Up Market!

It was a BIG, bright beautiful day for our November Pop Up Market. Our new friends, Luna Noel, set up our DIY Craft Bar with foraged herbs, sages, + foliage from Tahoe, Santa Barbara, Lavender from her Grandma's backyard locally here in Laguna Beach. It was pretty special. Can't wait for you to see!

We had kids laughing, puppies, champagne, Fleetwood Mac, dream catchers, precious stones, and rainbows. For real.

Vendor friends included the man, the myth, the legend...Robert Brink from The Hundredth Acres with his full candle line. Precious stone jewelry from Mayu Jewelry, modern day talismans from Vibe Catchers, boho inspired glam jewelry from Truly Blessed Jewelry, travel & vintage goods from Hartley Cash, and our favorite "shop within the shop" Kristin Lewis from The Garage Collective brought a curated lot of her favorite holiday gifts and pieces from her shop here in town. 

These blessed days just become brighter and more colorful with the new friends we met along the way. When we transitioned SOURCED. almost two years ago now from part retail shop / part creative office space to all office space, I was fearful we would loose some of the community vibe. That was dumb. We've only grown bigger & with more intention since those days. This was Pop Up number 18 in our books and by the end of 2018 we will have had 20 Pop Up's under our belt. The amount of makers, artisans, and new friends we've gained from these events is truly one of my greatest joys. Thank you for your continued support in us, in them, and this Laguna Beach community as a whole. See you in December!

August Pop Up Market

Recap of our August Pop Up Market!

Such a special day! Our front yard was transformed into a fun DIY Terrarium station where guests were able to make their own FREE terrariums sponsored by Pure Leaf Tea complete with beach inspired adornments like seashells and coral pieces collected from over time at our beach. Our friend Forrest & J and Seventh Bixel created a stellar photo wall that served as the backdrop to our event. Guests took photos with one another, there terrarium creations, and marveled at the floral cubes designed by Penelope Pots Floral Design.

Vendors included greeting cards and paper goods by Desiree B of I Must Draw, Laguna Beach's beloved candle maker Robert Brink of The Hundredth Acre, see the hat maker Debbie Lawrence of Floradora in action, got styled by Ronnie M Jewelry, and enjoyed a curated offering of The Garage Collective with special pieces from Peruvian designer Presentyln

Officemates Freeman's Collective set up shop and transformed their office space into pop up shop highlighting their leather goods, California crafted threads & a new line of handmade rings by Spencer Berkeley.  Ian Bryan of Agave Surf talked shoppers through their sustainable surfboards startup built right here out of SOURCED. Ali Rybczyk, officemate and resident artist set up a custom denim bar taking custom orders for painted vintage Levi jeans. And let's not forget about the empanadas. We had enough delicious empanadas from our neighbors Sergio's Empanadas to feed a small army and that's exactly what we did! 

Needless to say, we pretty much had the best day ever. This video shot by Ali on her phone sums it up & paints the perfect color of nostalgia that we feel after these events. 

Looking forward to our next Pop Up on Saturday, September 16th and the fun it will bring! Hope you'll join us.

March Artisan Pop Up Market

We enjoyed a beautiful, breezy afternoon for our last Pop Up Market! The day was filled with makers and artists sharing their passion, their brand, and what propelled them to the next level within their businesses. The greatest moments for me within these events is really getting to know the people behind the products. I'm fascinated by the process of a spark of an idea and then the story of putting it into action. For some of these vendors it's been years while for others its only been a short few months. From whimsical crystal mobiles and macrame hangings to precious turquoise jewelry and delicate scarves, there was no shortage of inspired goods with the talents hands and masterminds behind them. I know our customers enjoy getting to see the new faces we bring into the space and their stories and I'd say my biggest joy comes from the interactions between the vendors themselves. They are with their kind and they naturally gravitate towards one another; speaking to future collaborations, sharing successful tools or things they've learn along the way, and generously supporting one another. We all sort of some together as strangers and leave as a body of supporters and new friends. 

Thank you to our featured artists and of course, Eddie and Jordan of Neighborhood Creative for capturing the day to photos and video!
