Editors’ Picks: 5 Spring Favorites from the May 9 Remodelista Market

BY Meredith Swinehart

We’re holding our first Remodelista & Gardenista Market of the year on May 9 at the Marin Country Mart in Larkspur, California, a 30-minute drive from San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge. (Or take the Golden Gate Ferry for a scenic trip past Alcatraz Island.)

More than 40 of our favorite local designers and creators will be there, and in anticipation, we’ve started making our shopping lists. Here’s what each of us hopes to come away with.

Go to our Markets page for more details, and find the full list of vendors below. Hope to see you on May 9!  

Above: Dalilah is set on an Adrien Shirt from children’s wear line Les Petits Carreaux for her nephew’s fourth birthday; $50. See the apartment of the company’s co-founder in A Grand but Understated Flat in Paris

For her daughter’s birthday, Michelle has her eye on Pink Light Botanicals’ skin-care range from Homestead Apothecary of Oakland. Above L: Crystal Rose Toner combines rosewater and aloe vera to freshen the skin; $24. Above R: Floral Facial Scrub gently exfoliates with oatmeal and the dried petals of four kinds of flowers; $32.
