Get to know our Fall sponsor: Sava

As our Fall show approaches, we’d like to give a special shout out to our awesome sponsor, Sava!

SAVA is the premier cannabis delivery service for the Bay Area. They make it easy to find quality cannabis for your needs through a curated collection of artisan products delivered right to your door. Their staff of experts provides guidance via phone, email & chat and offers the support you need to maximize your experience. They truly are the go-to, one-stop shop for all things cannabis! Read more about them here.

Another thing we love about SAVA is that they support many small artisan/craft cannabis brands, many of which are female-owned! Here’s a quick intro to some local brands:

 

 

  • Juna Juna Drops are full-spectrum infusions of non-psychoactive CBD or psychoactive THC in a light, silken formula with a subtle herbal-floral flavor crafted by a local chocolatier.
  • HoneyPot A premium brand of cannabis-infused honey that promotes happiness & health. Made from honey and cannabis crafted by two best friends who live, cultivate, and bee-keep in Hayward.
  • Cosmic View Formulated with science and traditional herbal wisdom, these cannabis products are made with award-winning Sonoma County Tuscan blend cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. They are formulated by a mother/daughter team inspired to enter the cannabis space after using cannabis to get through cancer.
  • Mellows Low-dose gourmet marshmallows handcrafted right here in San Francisco by a local confectioner and foodie.

We are thrilled to have them as a partner for this show and excited to have them share their work with the Hayes Valley community. Come out this Sunday for a great shopping day!

Where to Shop in Berkeley

Look out festival goers and sun bathers, summer is unofficially upon us! While city dwellers are still experiencing nippy mornings and spontaneously windy afternoons, the East Bay is definitely feeling the heat.

For those who recently made the move across the bridge realizing they don’t own any “airy” clothing (let alone a pair of shorts), you’re probably looking to add some key elements to your wardrobe (like shorts). Instead of clicking “add to cart”, step away from the computer and explore local, sustainable and community enriching fashions from your local boutiques. And hello… you’ll get the added benefit of being able to try things on!

This month we’re all about Berkeley. I mean, they started the whole “Shop Local” movement anyway, right? Here are some local gems currently on our radar, plus some pro summer styling tips to keep in mind for all the fun adventures that await you this season:

Convert

Randy Brewer Convert BerkeleyOwner Randy Brewer opened Convert back in 2009 with the goal of making quality, sustainable fashion — for men and women– easier to come by. Find anything from organic cotton tees by PACT and upcycled leather backpacks and belts by Will Leather Goods to eco cult classics like Prairie Underground and the Pendleton Portland Collection.

Summer Style Tip: Mix it upConvert Berkeley

Instead of that simple white dress, pair a mismatched pattern skirt and top. I’m a big fan of mixing patterns. Yes, that floral tank looks great with that polka dot skirt! Throw in some metallic sandals as well. Versatile and fun.

Men, don’t be afraid to tuck a nice button up shirt into those shorts, with a belt of course. Also, oxfords without socks (or no see ums) with those shorts is a great alternative to sneakers. Lots of comfortable options that just take the ensemble to the next level.

 

 

Empress Vintage

Janina Angel Bath Empress Vintage
Empress Vintage is a newbie to Berkeley! This vintage oasis doubles as a community space and garden and is host to monthly workshops, trunk shows and other events. And did we mention the amazing finds? Bonus: Make an appointment with the owner Janina Angel Bath for a tarot reading after you shop.

Summer Style Tip: Rock a crop topempress vintage Berkeley

Who doesn’t love a cute crop top? They’re easy to dress up or down, and pair perfectly with pretty much anything high-waisted: long breezy skirts, classy trousers, tight jeans, cut offs. They also look amazing paired with things that have no waist at all- crop tops and overalls are an easy outfit for playing in the sun. And they come in so many styles! Casual t-shirts and tanks, flirty tie-ups, lacy nothings, more modest button ups, all made a little more saucy and a lot more steezy when cropped.

In the heat of the summer crop tops let the breeze in. So come now, before it gets too hot, and find some cropped cuties of your own at Empress!

UrbanityAngela Cadogan UrbanityAt Urbanity you’re sure to score something unique from their highly edited selection of designer clothing. Done with your Spring cleaning? Urbanity does consignment so you can rest assured that your old threads get a loving new home and don’t head for the dreaded landfill.

Urbanista Summer Style Tips:Urbanity Berkeley

  1. Always rock a little block | Sunblock that is! Our foggy, gray weather can often be deceptive. UV rays are ever present in our atmosphere and high on the list of causes for premature aging of the skin. As a lifelong fashionista I first recommend protecting your individually natural look with SPF 30+ and don’t forget to top your block with this summer’s hottest fashion accessory: a wide brimmed hat!
  2. Layer, Layer, Layer – and then add a Layer | We often find ourselves leaving the house in the morning bundled in a jacket and scarf, but as soon as noon rolls around, the temps are climbing to the high 70’s. Layers are the sure fire way to fashionably face whatever your days bring your way. Think summer dress, crop cardi, denim jacket, clogs (tights or crop leggings optional!), and a light weight scarf. The key is keeping these layers light so that as they are shed they can fit into your tote or day bag so you won’t get stuck carrying a heavy layer over your arm come midday.

 

 

FoxgloveRachel Kinney FoxGloveFoxglove is a great place to shop for men, women and kids — plus they have a superbly curated home goods selection (gifts!). They are big on supporting local and showcase a number of local designers as well as those that manufacture fair trade and organic. Their mantra: every purchase makes an impact.

Summer Style Tip: Shop “Thoughtful”foxglove Berkeley

What do you look for when curating/buying for your boutique?

I ask questions like: Does this have a unique perspective? Is it well-made? I prefer natural materials because they’re comfortable, easy to wash and maintain, and have a lower environmental impact than synthetics. The majority of our clothing is cotton!

One of my favorite (clothing and jewelry) brands that we carry is Mata Traders, which is a fair trade company based in Chicago. Fair Trade companies are devoted to ensuring that artisans are paid fair wages and empowered by their handiwork rather than exploited for it. Beyond the politics of fair trade, they produce a really cool range of clothing that suits many body types. So many fair trade clothing companies fall into the trap of producing “ethnic” products that don’t really appeal to a broad audience. Mata Traders, on the other hand creates modern and classic silhouettes, but with hand block-printed fabric which gives them a look that is less traditional. Their jewelry collection is chunky and vibrant, full of statement pieces.

 

 

Urban Air MarketDanielle Cohen Urban Air MarketIf you haven’t heard, Urban Air Market is popping-up in Berkeley on Saturday, June 20th from 11am – 6pm (rsvp here). The sustainable design festival will feature 100+ innovative designers of fashion accessories, home goods, jewelry, beauty and more. A great one-stop local shopping experience– plus it’s free to attend! Bonus: a live music showcase, a nearby farmer’s market, and art installations!

Summer Style Tip: Buy Reclaimed

UAM-map

Even though we’re a pop-up Berkeley destination for one day only, we’re helping to bring great shopping from local designers to the heart of downtown Berkeley, where there currently isn’t a lot of this kind of retail. My summer fashion tip: help divert waste from the landfill by shopping from our participating vendors who make jewelry, shoes, and handbags with reclaimed materials. Talk directly with the vendors and I bet they will give more advice about how to style your specific outfit.

About Urban Air Market

Not only does Urban Air Market provide a well curated marketplace for small businesses to showcase their products, it directly connects shoppers and taste makers to emerging designers, local art and sustainable products.

Spring Wellness Pop-up

Spring is a time for renewal. Just as the nature around us, it’s a season that makes us feel like blooming and starting anew. While many of us are making the time to organize and clean our spaces, we also need to remember our most important space: our bodies.

In addition to shopping for sustainable locally made goods, refresh your body and mind at Urban Air Market next weekend with a Wellness pop-up in Patricia’s Green that includes:

  • Aromatherapy with Organic Devotion
  • Massage with KneadNetwork
  • Yoga with Yoga Tree
  • Chiropractic with Life Chiropractic
    wellness-blog-image

    (from left to right: Ishwari Jay, Marissa Nasca, Aromatherapy, Founders of KneadNetwork table massage)

    Here are some great Yogic tips from Yoga Tree to keep you feeling refreshed this Spring: 

    1. Always listen to your body and breath. Only you know how the poses feel. The breath can give you clues about when to go deeper into a pose and when to modify.

    2. Don’t over do it. Rest and modify when you need to.  When in doubt ask your teacher if you are unsure about doing a pose.

    3. Every day is a new day on the mat. Don’t expect things to go the same way they did last time.

    4. Alignment is important but so is your own rhythm. Try to strike a good balance between doing the poses and experiencing the flow within them. This gets easier with practice.

    5. Have fun! Yoga is about being present and exploring your body and mind. Enjoy the ride and notice the things that show up on your mat. Be patient with yourself and remain open to learning.

     

    Yoga Tree will be offering two FREE yoga classes in the park. Join Marissa Nasca at 12:30pm or Ishwari Jay at 2pm. Bring your own mat. All levels welcome!

 

MarrisaNascaMarissa Nasca has a background in dance and has been practicing yoga for many years. She has studied several styles of yoga including Vinyasa and Anusara yoga. She completed her 200 hour teacher training in 2008 and has continued her studies with several notable teachers including Sianna Sherman and Katchie Ananda. Marissa also works closely with the Art of Yoga Project and deeply believes in seva.

Marissa has found much healing through her own yoga practice and enjoys helping others connect with their body and mind. Anatomy, philosophy, and heart felt enthusiasm are at the core of her classes. Marissa’s light spirit provides a playful atmosphere for her students to build confidence and expand.

 

 

IshwariBalance Ishwari Jay is a yogini, entrepreneur, “lightworker” and healthy lifestyle advocate. She began her meditation journey at six, and began teaching yoga amd meditation in 1998. Ishwari’s classes and workshops playfully invite her students to discover their fullest potential and expand their awareness of reality. Her deep knowledge of the yogic scriptures and biomechanical physical principles of alignment blended with her heart centered themes and great humor are weaved throughout the sessions, taking the students to a powerful transformational journey.

 Ishwari is the author of her self published book, The Power of Breath, the co-author of the national bestselling book, Initiative and the creator of the Amazon best-selling yoga DVD “Heart Flow Yoga.”
