We’re two weeks into Makevember, and we’ve featured an assortment of makers from all different backgrounds and locales. Here’s a short recap of the folks we’ve featured this week:
Monday, November 9 | Klepac & Co.
Makers come in all different styles. Today’s Makevember feature is of Klepac and Co. (AKA Your Modern Couple). We’re huge fans of this husband-wife duo, Catharine and Derek blend their love of interior design and architecture to create some one-of-a-kind pieces, including an awesome blog that goes inside the renovation of their bungalow. Not only do they masterfully execute the art of renovating, they also “design livable spaces and thoughtful events.”
Tuesday, November 10 | Bexar Goods Co.
Today’s Makevember feature is Bexar Goods Co. BEXAR Goods Co. is the creative collaboration of a small team of craftsmen based in Bexar County, Texas, the heart of the Texas Hill Country, an area with a rich heritage in leather use for outdoor travel. While their roots are based in Central Texas, their vision and inspiration are drawn from cultures around the world.
Wednesday, November 11 | VeryThat
Today’s Makevember features VeryThat, the labor of love of Cristina M. Martinez. From tiles to mini loteria sets, VeryThat has you covered with all your necia needs including wares capturing spanish sayings as well as goods paying homage to Frida Kahlo and Selena. Her traveling tiendita is always on the go. Follow her at VeryThat, and see where you can find her next.
Thursday, November 12 | Pretty Kiku
Our Makevember featured maker is Manue Reynolds of PrettyKiku. We’ve already shared our love of Manue Reynolds japan-inspired goods. Her washi earrings won us over, but her shop, PrettyKiku, offers so much more. From funky bangles to cherry blossom ornaments, Pretty Kiku offers a sweet and simple style.
Friday, November 13 | SoFlo Market & Goliad Market Days & Boerne Market Days
The holidays are fast approaching, and our local craft markets have you covered. Monthly markets such as SoFlo Market and Goliad Market Days are great examples of what we have going on around the holidays. Starting with SoFlo Market, where you can find over 40 local artists and artisans selling their wares. Venture to Boerne Market Days located in the heart of the historical district on Main Plaza, where you’ll find a variety of bargains to be found such as jewelry, plants, art, handcrafts, collectibles, antiques, and more. Head of to Goliad Market Days for an open air market experience that combines an arts and crafts fair, farmers market and community festival.
