Little D at Community Beer Co. is back on Saturday, May 21 from noon to 6 p.m. and we have rounded up four of our favorite must-see shops. With over 50 local Texas-based vendors selling housewares, clothing, jewelry, paper goods, artwork, food and drink, and more, the pop-up market is free to attend and all ages are welcome. Live music by local musicians such as Colin Boyd, People Watching, and Ronda Ray will be performed and tickets will be available to purchase Community Beer’s newest batch of brew. We’re hoping they’ll let us taste their brand new Texas Helles, a German lager the co. launched today.
Mesa Blue (Dallas, TX)
Established in 2009, Mesa Blue is a collection of bohemian handmade jewelry handcrafted right her in the Big D. Using metal, geodes, textiles, and leather, each piece is created for “the gypsy soul” and is often one-of-a-kind or available in limited quantity. The rhinestone and pyrite bangles pictured above will match perfectly with any festival outfit.
Monorail Studio (Austin, TX)
Daniella and Sandrine, the creative minds behind Austin’s Monorail Studio, met as graphic design students at the University of Texas in Austin where the two were studying lithography and printmaking. They’re more than just a studio, they bring their love for outdoors to their products and source materials from like-minded companies. We heart this “Work Like A Sailor, Play Like A Pirate” print above – who doesn’t work hard to play hard?
Dixie Goods Company (Dallas, TX)
Dixie Goods Company was created after a Halloween Costume epic fail with the designer’s pup Dixie (pictured above). She ordered her furry friend a costume online that was much too large, inspiring her to create a fall-themed collar instead so Dixie could still feel festive. Shortly after, Dixie had a collar for every holiday and soon after other dog owners caught onto the festive puppy accessories, the company was born.
Bella & Chloe (Dallas, TX)
Handmade in Dallas, Bella & Chloe have created an impressive collection of thoughtfully sourced, hand-picked heirloom quality jewelry made with precious metals and stones from across the world. Effortlessly cool, these bohemian pieces are made for a woman who is unapologetically authentic and timeless. We’re pretty obsessed with their dreamy imagery too.
