Guthrie Lane for The Mercantile

Eliza and I are excited to announce that at Friday's Market, the lovely and talented Angela Devine of Guthrie Lane will be bringing some special things from over the hill in Livingston. We've been putting our heads together to produce a few new pieces that will be extra fun to wear for summer.

We've found some sweet fabrics for a little girl sun dress and a summer cowgirl shirt for ladies. We can't be more pleased with the results. Thanks to Angela for all of her hard work. We can't wait for everyone to see them in person!

Crystal Flynt of Bon

I just love this woman, Crystal Flynt, she is so darn cute, and is one of the most creative women I know. Together with her mom Bonnie, Crystal has a lovely shop in Tucson, Bon Boutique. It is an eclectic store with a mix of lovely things for home and garden, new and old, with a collection of exquisite and unique women's clothing. Some of the gorgeous items carried are Crystal's own creations, beautiful paper garlands and other handmade paper goods (she made the fan garlands hanging in our studio at the Merc). If you ever are in Tucson, this shop should not be missed! Bon has an online shop as well, a collection of some of what can be found in Tucson, they change this out frequently, so join their mailing list to be updated.

I met Crystal by way of Shannon at Blackbird Kitchen, they are old friends. Bon carries my wall pieces and pillows (and now our e + a collective cards). I had the great opportunity to go down to Bon a couple of Octobers ago now for a Fall Market which I was a part of. It was then that I got to witness Crystal's creativity and perspective of beauty first hand.

See some of Crystal's creations this week, handmade paper garlands hanging at Blackbird Kitchen. If you go to Bon's website, the garlands are pictured on the main page- aren't they amazing?! She will be bringing more of these and other goods to the Mercantile Summer Market this Friday June 28th 5-8pm. Hope you will be there! Until then, peruse Bon's website and read their blog, it's fantastic. And follow this link to a feature on them on the design blog Remodelista. Click here to view.

Summer Market... coming soon!

Friday  June, 28th  5-8pm

Please join us for a beautiful summer evening at the studio. Just after the summer solstice, the sun will be shining into the night as we open our doors for a studio event not to be missed.

We will have over 7 artists in our space, transforming our humble, quiet little creative corners into a glorious and bustling shop - with jewelry, locally designed clothing, wildcrafted beauty products, handmade paper goods, wool and leather craft as well as the various Mercantile goods you've come to know.

There will be delicious street tacos made on the spot from Blackbird Kitchen, as well as, lovely treats from our new neighbor Wild Crumb.  Bring your friends, enjoy some food, and welcome summer with us.

NEW from E+A Collective

We have had a nice bit of down time at the studio this spring after the busi-ness of the holidays. The off-season months are about cleaning up and cleaning out, as we all feel the innate urge to do so come April and May. As our pace slowed down, our inspiration resurfaced... Eliza and I have been working on an exciting collaborative project.

We've launched a new postcard collection with our signature chipboard paper now paired with a snazzy gold foil print. All designs originate from a block print carved in the studio. Some of you may have seen them or even snatched up a few at our last Valentine's studio event. We've added two more designs to the collection and have already begun selling them at some of our favorite shops around the country. We'll be especially excited for their Bozeman debut at our upcoming studio event on the eve of Friday, June 28th. Mark your calendars... official invite to come soon!
