If you live in the Bay Area, stop by this Saturday for our mega-awesome garage sale! Ben and I are liquidating our entire house (and a good chunk of my studio) before moving to Austin next week! Yes, you heard that right. We're moving to Texas! We have lots of big plans ahead and I'll be keeping you all posted shortly, just as soon as I can empty our house and get this show on the road. Here are the details:

THIS Saturday!
10AM - 4PM
no early birds, please, we're not that organized
456 Rich St. (off 42nd/Telegraph)
Oakland, CA 94609

Some items of interest: Craftsman furniture, loads of linens, design books, cookbooks, fiction and non-fiction, nautical items, office supplies, design magazines, loads of sweet fabrics, craft notions, kitchen supplies, tons of glassware, stoneware, art prints, vintage paper, records, clothing, and hot purses!

Swing on by, check out our goods, and then grab yourself a fried chicken sandwich and lemon chill from Bakesale Betty's, just down the street. Hope to see you there!

Renegade SF Recap

Renegade SF was beyond words--such a wonderful mix of new and old friends, and some fabulously talented vendors. It was, by far, the best group of vendors I've ever shown with. We had a killer corner booth in the center aisle, which we flanked with bunches of red balloons. Whenever I got a chance to sneak away from the booth, I would overhear folks saying, "Yes, meet me over by the red balloons," b/c they were one of the few landmarks in the huge hall. Totally worth the splurge. I'll definitely be using red balloons at future shows in similar spaces.

Thanks to all my wonderful customers who came out to show their support--it means the world to me to meet you all and hear how excited you are about Miss Natalie. We wouldn't be doing what we're doing without you. Also, big thanks to my dear friends who helped me pull off a solo show--Clarissa, Scott, Margaret, Nichole, Jocelyn, and Ben. You all are life savers.

In all the chaos, I forgot to bring my camera, so didn't get many pictures of the other wonderful vendors. During the last day, I was trading goods like a mad woman, and came back with a great set of loot. Will share that in another post--stay tuned!

Come on by this Saturday and Sunday, between 11am-7pm @ the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion. Our corner booth will be in the center aisle, just past the first row of vendors. We'll have lots of goodies, plus some great vintage items for sale as well. Just look for the red balloons and you should be able to find us. See you there!!

Treatzone Portraits + L.A., I'm Yours

Gorgeous new portraits by Treatzone! Available at Renegade San Francisco, July 18th-19th. I love Sandy and Matthew's work. I can't decide which one I want to scoop up, but I know I need to swing by their booth early for these beauties.

Don't forget! This weekend we'll be down in LA for the 1st annual Renegade LA show, July 11-12th, from 11am-7pm at the California Market Center Penthouse. We'll be around the corner from the Reform School booth, so swing by and see us! Can't wait.

Target's Red Hot Shop + Miss Natalie!

We've been sitting on this great news for a while now, and I'm so excited to share it! Miss Natalie is part of July's Red Hot Shop at Target! You can pick up our growth charts there for a limited time. It's been growth chart mania of late, as we gear up for Renegade LA and SF this month as well. Big thanks to my two Bens for production help getting this order out the door.

Living in a Sea of Linens

I stumbled upon a new favorite blog, Nothing is New, by Kelly Rakowski. Hello, Belarusian textiles! You just made my morning. I want to cover my walls with these and sleep in a bed piled high with the extras. They remind me of the Palestinian textiles I studied at school, and grew up with all over my house. One day I hope to own a loom so I can make my own. That will happen on the same day that I finally grow my hair long.
