RECAP: MOJAVE FLEA + PALM SPRINGS

2019 started off with our first ever out-of-state market event, Mojave Flea in Palm Springs. We couldn't pass up this little weekend journey to one of our favorite desert cities and the opportunity to be a part of the makers & merchants featured at The Ace Hotel & Swim Club for the day.  The Ace Hotel was a total dream to stay at for the weekend. The clouds & rain were all the more reason to enjoy little lounges by the fireplace, delicious cocktails at The Amigo Room, music by the pool and heated spa, and a must-stop meal at the King's Highway Diner. Our favorites are the chilaquiles at brunch and Oaxacan Sunrise as a must-have nightcap. Some of our...

Artist Series: Beau Brown

For our 2018-2019 product line, we decided to introduce something new, something we had been wanting to do ever since the opening of the store.

Caitlin & Sean - Los Alamos Wedding

This wedding suite was one of our all-time favorites, from the ultra-stylish couple to the 70s era design details, we fell in love with Caitlin & Sean's vintage-inspired wedding and their western saloon venue, The 1880 Union Hotel located in Los Alamos, California. Caitlin & Sean wanted a neon-sign themed wedding suite inspired by The Alamo Motel, where there wedding party would be staying to celebrate the festivities. It was a dreamy day filled with neutral florals and lovely pops of orange, amber, and green to accent the warm, historic property in California wine country. We also designed custom bar & dinner menus with matching place cards to compliment their wedding invitations and add a personalized touch to the reception.  For more information...
