Academy of Handmade + West Elm + Married & Bright

Last week, I had the pleasure of taking part of a Small Business Saturday event at West Elm here in Los Angeles. Small Biz Sat is the answer to Black Friday. It give the chance for local businesses, handmade product makers, and independent shops to offer their goods and services for the upcoming holiday season. It's also a wonderful time for customers eager to support those small businesses to connect with them, rather than busting down doors right after eating a meal with their families.

West Elm has a history of interacting, buying from, and supporting makers, and I was so pleased to be a part of this tradition. Thanks to Sharon from Academy of Handmade for arranging this fun day out of my studio, and to West Elm for hosting. Happy holidays!

Thank you to Sabrina Hill for these lovely photos!
