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.
A few things around the shop: our favorite jacket for Fall from Levi's Vintage Collection, Cuba Repettos and talisman necklaces handmade in Los Angeles.
We love John Derian's animal plates… they look great together in a grouping!
We've been putting together some textiles that we think look great together…. a mix of European and American made pieces with a bit of ethnic- Bolivian frazadas, Indian kanthas and wool blankets, and Turkish rugs. Some of these special pieces are available in our online shop- have a look here.
