We’re hosting our first Remodelista & Gardenista Market of the year this Saturday, May 9–the day before Mother’s Day–at the Marin Country Mart in Larkspur Landing, California, just 30 minutes from San Francisco.
More than 40 local designers and creators will be selling their wares, and we’ve been doing some advance shopping. Here are our picks for Father’s Day (June 21) and graduation gifts. Spouses and children: For Mother’s Day present ideas from the market, see our Gift Guide.
Go to our Markets page for more details, and scroll below for a list of vendors. We hope to see you on Saturday!
Father’s Day Gifts
Above: For the philosopher, reader, or aesthete, consider Wabi-Sabi: Further Thoughts by Leonard Koren from Imperfect Publishing out of Point Reyes, California. (Learn about Koren’s cult-status books in Required Reading.)
Above: For the dad who deserves something big this year, The Guideboat is an exact replica of a rare 1892 design. Not a canoe, the guideboat is rowed rather than paddled; it seats up to three; $4,850 from Guideboat Co. in Mill Valley, California.
Above: From LA’s Scout Regalia, the SR Birdhouse Kit is a ready-to-assemble California craftsman-style birdhouse, a perfect project for kids and dads to do together. The Birdhouse is being offered at a market-only special of $40 (down from $55).
Above: Bar Au Chocolat makes single-origin bars in Manhattan Beach, California (from beans sourced in Madagascar, Brazil, Mexico, and beyond). The company’s eight varieties of Tasting Bars are $12 each.
Above: Little Apple Granola, a venture with a mission to preserve apple orchards in Sonoma County, will be selling bags of Apple Cider Toffee–organic toasted almonds, dried pink apples, TCHO chocolate, and apple cider syrup–for $18.95.
Here’s a list of the vendors who will be at the Remodelista & Gardenista Market this Saturday, May 9.
