Our buds at @alterecosf will be giving out their damn addicting mint crème truffles at the show this weekend. Not only are they delicious, but the wrappers are compostable! Win win! 💎🌈♻️ #westcoastcraft#alteryoureco
This weekend’s show marks our 5th anniversary here at West Coast Craft and what a 5 years it’s been. Grateful doesn’t begin to describe how we feel to our vendors, our attendees, and our partners. It’s been a wild and inspiring ride and we can’t wait to see what the next 5 years bring (we’re looking at you LA...). 🌈 To celebrate this milestone, we have collaborated with 5 of our vendors on very limited edition anniversary merch. Massive thank you to @katiekimmel, @peopleiveloved, @mooncollective, @gentlethrills, and @culk for creating these rad designs. 🌈 ALL of the proceeds from the sale of these tees will go directly to @northvalleycf’s Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund. We are blessed to call California home and her people our family, and are committed to doing what we can to help. 🌈 A huge thank you to @bellacanvas for donating the blanks to make this project possible, and to our dear friends @mistergarf and @younggoth for their support and modeling skills! 🌈 Head to the link in our bio to purchase now or scoop one up at the show this weekend! 🌈 With nothing but love, WCC.
Our friends @pinterest interviewed some of our Winter ‘18 vendors in anticipation of this weekend’s show @fortmasoncenter. One interviewee is longtime WCC alum and the genius clothing designer behind @firstriteclothing, Nikki Garcia.
On where Garcia gets her inspiration: “Inspiration comes from all aspects of my everyday—walking around my neighborhood, going on hikes, and taking time to step away from work. Every spring I take a longer trip that completely resets me and inspires a palette, mood, and story I want to tell. This past spring I went to Spain and Morocco—the trip inspired the Spring 2019 collection and shoot setting—sandy neutral tones of the Sahara against the bolder blue and greens from the northern Spanish coast.” 🌈
On how @pinterest plays into her creative process: “I go to Pinterest when I’m looking for inspiring imagery and ideas for my work, home, travel and life. It gives me a good idea of what direction to take things. I collect images from all over the internet and save them on secret boards for current or future seasons and photoshoots, and I reference them often during a new collection’s development. It’s great to share a board with a team before a shoot and get everyone on the same page.” #westcoastcraftvendor#westcoastcraft
