One of the things we miss the most about our old Hayes Valley home is Urban Air Market (UAM). We opened our doors for the first time back in 2014 the day of their Spring Hayes Valley market. Every since then we always got excited every time the market came to the neighborhood. We loved having so many of our makers selling their wares outside our doors for the day and then discovering new artists to feature in the shop. The wonderful thing about our new location in Oakland is that UAM pops up at the Hive not too far away. Their next market is Sunday July 21st and we can’t wait to do a little summer shopping. We’ve stalked the vendor list and compiled our favorite finds perfect for enjoying this summer. All the items are from makers new to us that we can’t wait to meet. Will we see you there?

We can’t wait to try on the Knot Everyday Shirt by Amy Kuschel. We love that this collection is manufactured locally and features flattering lines and high quality fabrics. We especially like the playful Liberty London print use for this button down and could see ourselves reaching for it all summer long.
We’ve got sandals on the mind with our new Sandal Making Workshop coming up in September. These Ridge Slides by AFTERNOON look buttery soft and like they would go with everything from jean cut offs to a flowy floral dress. All their shoes are inspired by the California landscape, with a minimalist silhouette and a commitment to sustainable materials and ethical production. What could be better?
We’re always on the lookout for non-toxic products that are safe and effective so to keep our skin vibrant and hydrated we’re excited to try Korina’s body oils. We’re especially interested in their summer sent, Neroli and Bergamont which has botanical ingredients like jojoba, sweet almond and fractionated coconut oil to moisturize dry skin without leaving a greasy feeling.
The Abeline Dress by Atelier Prelude seems like the perfect summer staple. Wear it to work, on a picnic, or even spice it up with statement shoes and jewels for an outdoor wedding. We love the retro inspired cut and ease of this dress. Their commitment to sustainability wants to make us invest in their romantic pieces.
