We are lucky to be a part of a special group called Coterie Market. Coterie Market is a group of local makers and artisans who make products that range from soaps to chocolates. All of the businesses that sell products through Coterie Market are owned and operated in the Austin area. The definition of coterie is a small group of people with shared interests or tastes. Our coterie of like-minded people is dedicated to making it convenient to shop and buy high-quality local products. Chelsea Staires Sun founded Coterie Market to make it easier to buy locally in Austin and to unite area artisans who create high-quality locally-sourced products.
West Elm is a global brand that offers design services and products for the home. However, West Elm has not forgotten its roots or desire to foster community through offering a choice in products and collaborating with communities around the world. This store carries locally made and designed products to help people feel truly at home by connecting them with their local community. As part of this community initiative, West Elm is hosting a Coterie Market Holiday Pop Up shop this Saturday, December 6th from 11 AM to 4 PM.
This collaboration between West Elm and Coterie Market is a great way for both purveyors of fine goods to fulfill their missions of providing local products to the wider public.
In a holiday season filled with hurried shopping and mountains of presents, this is a great way to make an impact in your community by giving a local gift. A mass-produced scarf or another pair of ear buds, may not be as special as some local honey or handmade pottery. When you buy a local product, you support a local maker and become more connected with your community.
Our all-natural cleaning products will be there too! We love helping people feel more comfortable in their homes through cleaning, but you can emulate the same experience of making your home a comfortable place by using our all-natural homemade cleaners like our Oregano and Lavender Counter Spray, which is made of water, lavender, oregano, castille soap, baking soda, borax and citric acid, or our Eucalyptus and Lemon All-Purpose Cleaner, which only contains water, vinegar, eucalyptus and lemon.
We hope you will take some time out of your Saturday to do some meaningful holiday shopping. Instead of shopping to fill stockings, why not add some purpose to your gift-giving efforts this year?
If you can’t make it to this event, you can always buy our all-natural cleaning products here.
