A special treat! Some of our tastings next Friday night will be from the beautiful Teresita's Panadería y Bistro in Álamos, Sonora, México.  We have never been there in person (REALLY hoping to get there one day soon!!), but we know the proprietress, Teri Arnold Shannon, is a fabulous cook… not to mention she is one of the most stylish women we know. Teresita's will be using Sal Del Mar to create some wonderful things for us to try next Friday. To see more about this lovely bistro, please go here. Pictures from here.

fall party and sal del mar tasting

Many of you have seen Sal Del Mar in our store- we love this gourmet sea salt and have had it available at bon for quite a while now. Our friend Claudia Karafotos started this sweet, small company after she discovered the way sea salt was harvested from the Sea of Cortez using ancestral methods. She then met a group of women in the village of Sabinito who were interested in embroidering the bags Claudia envisioned for the salt. It all came together like it was meant to be. We think it is a wonderful salt, and we adore the packaging…. it makes the perfect gift! Please join us on Friday, October 24, 6 to 8 pm for tastes and drinks- it's going to be a fun evening!! Keep an eye on our blog for more details. To see more about Sal Del Mar, please go here.

Wonderful new pieces by Christy Long now in the shop. These are made of semiprecious stone combinations crocheted on silk… chrysoprase and turquoise, labradorite and turquoise, and green cats eye and moss aquamarine. These look beautiful on with the stones going around the back of the neck.
