A few weeks ago, we made a trip out to the King’s Mountain Art Fair in Woodside. It’s a magical event, with arts, crafts, food and drink nestled among a shady redwood grove (mark your calendars for next year!). The highlight of the day was running into Linda Fahey (who is also a friend and fellow Pacifican) and her amazing ceramics. She created an exclusive collection for Anthropologie last year, and is working on another, which will be available for holiday 2014. Watch out for it, and follow her on Instagram to track her progress!
If you’re in the Bay Area, stop by her Yonder Shop at 158 Reina Del Mar in Pacifica (right next to Gorilla BBQ). And congrats are in order: the shop just made the SF Chronicle’s list of the Bay Area’s top 100 shops! It’s not tough to see why—from her big, nautically-themed platters, to her Tiny Love Cups, everything is incredibly unique and beautiful, and it’s all handmade by Linda. I’ve been jonesing for one of her driftwood spoons for a while now, and a tall ship platter is also on my must-buy list.
Also look out for an upcoming collaboration with graphic designer and printmaker Julia Kostreva. More info coming soon! Check out lots more of her work below, plus more shots from the fair.
We also ran into this bell maker.
The guy really didn’t want Frida yanking on that but she was persistent.
Bye bye gong gong (that’s what she calls trucks, long story).
