by victoria comment


kindred is coming to san francisco and to makeshift society specifically for a 2-day holiday pop-up shop! please join us for two days of holiday shopping on december 15th from 11-7 and december 16th from 11-5. A project by Lynn Russell of Satsuma Press and Teresa Robinson of Stone & Honey, kindred will offer the work of over a dozen makers from across the US and Canada. After many years of navigating overwhelmingly big holiday markets, both as shoppers and as vendors, Lynn and Teresa wanted to create a well-edited, small-scale event that would bring together a select group of makers and those who appreciate their work.

and, to celebrate their arrival at makeshift, the team at kindred are hosting one pretty fabulous giveaway for sfgirlbybay readers. one lucky reader will win a package of gifts that include all the pieces you see above:

Special edition navy + leather letter clutch from Moop • Yellow + Mint Wallet Pouch from Falconwright • Weck jar soy candle from Luminology • Scribble tea towel from Leah Duncan • One bottle of Toji, The newest scent from Olo • Pair of Arcos Earrings from Stone & Honey • 2013 letterpress calendar from Satsuma Press.

• as always, be sure to leave a way to reach you via twitter, facebook, email or your website.

• enter by monday, december 17th, midnight PST.

• we’ll announce a winner on my twitter account by friday the 21st, so be sure and follow along on twitter.

• sorry, but this time the giveaway applies to U.S. and Canadian residents, only. However, if you are able to pay for shipping, international entries are welcome.

  1. Love the bookhou large tote. The neutral color palette makes it perfect for mixing and matching prints in an outfit, plus it’s the perfect size! Now following both of you on Twitter, too.

  2. If only I lived in a city where pop-ups like this happened…. I would really love to visit Luminology’s workspace. There is something so soothing about flickering candlelight on a cloudy winter day…

  3. All of the pieces are beautiful, especially the Satsuma Press calendar, but I came across Stone & Honey over the weekend and fell head over heels for their earrings.

  4. A tiny little corner of Northern California where she lives with her family and makes the most lovely clothes – would visit modaspia’s workspace in a heartbeat!

  5. I’d want to visit Lynn’s studio at Satsuma Press because I adore her simple and delightful letterpress pieces and because she can drive a stick shift (love a gal like that) and because her son Liam is an inspiration for all. Yvonne :)

  6. oh my goodness this is full of awesome! the olo space would be so interesting, and i’ve admired satsuma press for ages, bokhu would be a close runner up! followed on twitter as well…THANKS for including canadians! :)

  7. I am in love with Stone&Honey. I’ll be there Saturday afternoon to see it all in person, and I can’t wait! I also followed Kindred on Twitter. xo

  8. WOWSA, what a giveaway! I have to say Leah Duncan – big fan of her work and she was an Austinite! All of these artists are extremely talented – great round up for sure! Definitely following @kindred_holiday on Twitter.

  9. oh i wish i could be in sf for this. on the top of my holiday wish list is a necklace from stone & honey. i love all of the items that i have from satsuma press, scarf shop, shanna murray, and bookhou.

  10. Love it all! It’s my great luck to be friends with Teresa from Stone & Honey and can honestly say her work space is one of the most inspiring I’ve ever seen. Just beautiful. I’d love to visit Leah Duncan’s studio too–her prints are some of my faves! Satsuma Press’s calendar knocks me out as well. I love the color palette.

    Followed kindred_holiday on Twitter as well :)

  11. I want one of everything! Love Satsuma Press’s cards and have been a fan of Moop forever. Also, followed Kindred on Twitter for an extra entry :)

  12. loving the tea towel and everything by stone & honey! super bummed not to make it to SF for this but forcing friends to go.
    pretty sure it is time for a new iPad case from byrd & belle.

  13. All these makers are divine. The pop up shop is on my list for this Saturday. I’m most looking forward to checking out what bookhou has to offer up – their designs are beautiful. I follow you already, and now I’m following @kindred_holiday for that extra entry.
    Looking forward to a well-curated show

  14. I would love to see the Satsuma Press studio. As a hobby printer myself with a teeny C + P press, I so admire the elegance and organic simplicity Satsuma Press brings to their letterpress work. Lovely giveaway- my fingers are doubly crossed!

  15. I would love to see Bookhou space! Love there geometric patterned bags – make you feel so lovely even in jeans and a messy tee. I can only image how fun that studio is.

  16. I’ve got to give a shout out to Natalie Davis from Austin, TX — but because I’ve seen her studio, I’ve got to say the studio of Shanna Murray would be a fabulous visit. Thanks for the opp – I followed Kindred on Twitter, too!

  17. I’d love to visit Olo’s work space. I imagine it’s a dreamy place–wonderfully aromatic, with lots of little apothecary jars all around!

  18. i would love to see leah duncan’s space…and so many others…i can’t decide if it’s a bad or good thing that i am on the other side of the country!

  19. I love so many of the vendors!! I’ve been dying to see more pieces from Falconwright in person, though, so I’d probably make a beeline for their merch.

  20. i would love to visit bookhou’s workshop in toronto! a city i’ve never been to is always a draw, plus it’s in another country, and finally, you don’t understand what a bag-freak i am. not purses, just big bags. and i need more. always.

  21. it’s a tough choice to decide between all of the great designers, but i’ve had a major crush on stone & honey’s jewelry for quite some time! the new line, arcos, is killing me with awesome! i get to see small images of her work space on instagram, but i’d love to see a full studio tour!

    this giveaway is a dream! finger’s crossed…


  22. If I went by my pinterest board I would have to say i am tossed between bookhou and falconwright for bags, love the patterns, Also in love with Stone & Honey’s jewelry.

  23. I never enter giveaways, even on my favourite blogs, because I am sure I will never win (can you hear the strains of “Blue Christmas” in the background?), but there is just too much goodness here. I’d love to visit Heather Sielaff or Andrea Sands. And that moop clutch is pretty lovely. And I would happily wing my way from Toronto to San Fran just to visit this sweet pop-up! xo

  24. Would I have to pick just one?! OLO would draw me in an instant because I can’t resist a wonderful scent and bookhou’s designs are simply sublime. I can feel a huge pinterest binge starting… :)

    Lovely all round – another reason I’d love to be in San Francisco right now!

    PS. I’m following kindred on twitter – (at)KateMetcalf

  25. Love the totes & patterns at Bookhou. I’m always looking for a great tote that can carry my life in a bag – you know necessities like camera, sunglasses, wallet, moleskin, celly, scarf, etc.

    I also followed them on twitter!

    Great contest – and read your blog daily ;)

  26. I would love to visit Shanna Murray’s studio. Her work is so understated, calm and beautiful–I’m a bit loud and bright by comparison, so I’d love to take the chance to be inspired by her grace. Plus, upstate New York! What a great opportunity to get out of the city :)

  27. Oooh, hard choice — My family and I have and enjoy products from seven sellers! I guess I would start with Leah’s work space … but I really would love to get to them all!

  28. love, love Moop and now in love with modaspia…all so very lovely, clean designs and simplicity all in one. I want to win a treat, all so lovely.

  29. Shanna Murray’s workspace looks like a place I would feel perfectly cozy and at home in. I love her simplicity and graceful art… inspiring without being overwhelming or intrusive. Simply beautiful. Also followed on twitter for the extra vote! ;D (@mmmbolt)

  31. What an awesome giveaway! I love their designer Canoe. With such clean lines and geometrics shapes I bet their work shop is as gorgeous as their accessories!

  32. Honestly, all of them. But if I have to choose, byrd & belle. I’ve been wanting one of their laptop sleeves for quite a while now,

  33. wow- stone & honey, for a long time i’v been searching the universe for jewerly that i can fall inlove with and now i did. stone & honey, modern but antique, antique yet modern, pagan poetry.
