We build. We collect. We love.

April 30, 2014

We are builders. We are collectors. We love to collaborate with other builders, artisans, collectors. Throughout the month of May, we are opening up our stash in shop and we will be revealing new goods from artisan and collector friends. That means that while we build 80% of everything we sell in shop, we now have about 20% built by others.

Here are a few...

Canoe | minimalist hand-tooled leather goods such as coasters, key rings, and an eagle feather
Lite + Cycle | essential oil candles unlike anything I have ever burned
Dr J | All-Purpose Scrubs and Sprays made exclusively in Marfa
Marfa Brands | Soaps and Upcycled Bottle Glassware
Gail Chovan Atelier | Unique linen and leather apparel handcrafted in Austin 
Sam Roberts LA | best selection of their hats, necklaces, and clothing on the web
Collective Quarterly | a brand new magazine that celebrates collaboration and makers
Paul Wiggins | exclusive stock of this artisan silversmith from Terlingua 
Michael Swearngin| new art from this San Antonio native who has his finger on the pulse of Contemporary Cowboy (in store May 6)
Stash Found | we mined our stash of collected goods for this one


This is a perfect time to do such an introduction because as I sit and write this, a clock is ticking and I am less than two weeks away from Baby Stash. All of which gets a little more complicated when you build your own goods. And is why everyone keeps fussing me. I'm in a flat out last ditch panic to get everything built and organized before I really can't for a few weeks.

Naturally we have too many events scheduled around all of this time so a traditional "maternity leave" isn't exactly happening. To kick off May, we are having a party this Thursday, May 1 to celebrate all of these things. Then at the end of May, we'll be hosting our friends from Cobra Rock Boot Company at the shop. Get your boots on. There will be a limited stock of ready-to-wear available and custom order taking. A very rare opportunity indeed. And naturally, I have a plan to reveal a new line of bags just in time for the summer that week. 

So come see me Thursday from 6 - 9 pm. Let me pour you a glass of wine and show you some of the treasures we've added. And of course, there will be a little special discount on Stash Built items for the evening. Save 10% on anything we build.
