Finding the right Goods for you is just part of the fun of our jobs at Eclectic Box Goods. In the past few months, we have been personally meeting with Makers in California, Arizona, Oregon, Kansas, Oklahoma, Utah and Hawaii.
We have found Makers and their Goods in flea markets, small shops, artisan fairs, pop-up shops, holiday boutiques, speciality shops as well as in the Maker’s living rooms and basements turned into studios and workshops and have even bought goods out of the trunk of a Makers car trunk.
One of our upcoming featured makers works and lives out of a 4,000 square foot warehouse in Wichita–he calls this space his “WareHome”.
Over the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend, we attended a swap meet in the Palm Springs, CA area and found “organic” jewelry artist, Lilla Artesanal. Lilla is from Mexico, and creates her earring from beans, seed pods and pits and hand-ties these items into one-of-a-kind earrings which are sure to be a topic of conversation the next time you wear them.
Here is also a quick video of Lilla explaining the “ingredients” of her unique earring designs. We have added some of her goods in our Makers Marketplace. Lilla can be found on Facebook at Lilla Artesanal.
We are continually on the search for eclectic and unique designs and hand crafted goods to add to our monthly boxes or to feature their goods in our Makers Marketplace. Are you a Maker? Know a Maker? We’d love to talk!
We are excited for our very first box to be shipping later this month, we are calling it our “There’s No Place Like Home” box featuring artists and makers from the great state of Kansas. We hope our hand selected goods will Brighten your Life and Home.
