#MakerCrushMonday: 38 of Our Fave West Coast Makers
Around here we’re giving #MCM a new meaning — MAKER Crush Monday. Re:Make may only come but once a year, but we love attending maker markets (when we’re not chilling virtually in the B+C Shop) close to the holidays to score finds for everyone on our list. Over the past few weeks at West Coast Craft and the San Francisco Bazaar, we’ve been BUSY. Scroll through to discover some of our favorite West Coast-based makers (represent!).
1. Atelier Dion: Pick out a rainbow assortment of ceramic mugs from this Oakland-based production studio.

3. Ella Lou: These Turkish towels and blankets are so cozy, you’ll never want to leave your bed (do you ever want to anyways though?).
