The time is upon us again! West Coast Craft swings through San Francisco this Saturday June 10, and Sunday, June 11, 10am-6pm. The showcase of independent makers consistently marks one of our favorite weekends in the city, and you can bet we’ll be there in full force.
For West Coast readers coming to the show, we want to see you! Mother will be on the scene snapping the best mama-and-kiddo street style (on Saturday, June 10, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., come find photographer Sarah Hebenstreit outside, near the back) and we’ll also be hosting our upstairs lounge space once again, this time with our friends over at Lonny.
This year’s set-up will have a modernist, family-friendly living room vibe, decked out by our partners Room & Board (we’ll be giving away the brand’s amazing Loki kids’ playhouse!), Land of Nod, Monroe Workshop Toys, IKEA, Bitte, Little Sapling Toys, West Elm, Leon & George, Lulu & Georgia, and the Paloma Co.
While parents take a load off on comfy Campaign couches, the littles will be entertained with necklace-making, a Tattly tattoo station, getting artsy with watercolors, and so much more.
At the actual show itself, be on the lookout for 20 “Mother-approved” vendors, designated by a little sticker on each both and detailed below:
Ace & Jig: Run by two “Mother mothers”—Cary Vaughn and Jenna Wilson—we can’t get enough of these signature prints in mommy and mini-me sizes.
Atelier Dion: Always one of the most photographed booths at West Coast Craft, this beautiful ceramics brand comes in the most intriguing rainbow of hues and is run by two new parents.
Baby Cats of CA: A newcomer kidswear brand filled with made-ya-look, cat-themed prints.
Bitte: One of our partners up in the Mother x Lonny lounge, e-tailer Bitte is run by a mother-daughter team and filled with the most beautiful modern toys, decor, and clothes for kiddies.
Ceri Hoover: Modern leather accessories (bags, shoes) and jewelry, straight from Nashville.
EllieFunDay: Maker of the prettiest, delicately embroidered swaddles and our favorite animal-themed baby hats.
Freda Salvador: We really can’t figure out what we love more—the two mamas behind this footwear brand or the cult-followed shoes that fill their drool-worthy collections.
Gravel & Gold: Come see why this brand is about so much more than that storied, fabulous boob-print.
Happy French Gang: Supremely unique blankets, pillows, and other textiles, made by a French expat mother.
Hygge: A new, mama-run brand filled with minimal pieces that easily go from drop-off to desk to dinner.
Kira Kids: Organic baby and kids’ clothes in the quirkiest of prints.
Les Petits Carreaux: Fine kids’ clothes with a chic, Euro feel.
Lindsay Robinson: Get one—or three—of these jumpsuits now, ladies!
Lisa Says Gah: The expertly curated shop and longtime Mother fave.
Little Paper Planes: Need a gift for a loved one or yourself? Good luck picking just one from this mama-run retailer.
Lotfi: Meet “Mother mother” Sharareh Lotfi in the flesh, and scoop up one of her perfect bags while you’re at it.
Mabo: Organic cotton basics for the kids that are really anything but #basic.
Meghan Shimek: The most beautiful and unexpected wall weavings by the most wonderful single mama of one (be on the lookout for Meghan’s Mother profile super soon!).
Noble Carriage: All of your organic baby needs in one stop.
Spark + Pepper: The most beautiful, delicate jewelry for everyday wearing.
Tosan: Why should moms get all the matchy-matchy fun? This brand is all about the cutest papa-and-kiddo wares (oh, and there’s a MA shirt we’re pretty obsessed with, too).
Wolfechild: Beautiful textiles and prints, direct from Chicago.
