Seed People's Market, Costa Mesa

The Seed People's market has a green roof, an element of sustainable design very hard to come by in the arid climate of Southern California. They also now carry a wide selection of the Headlands Handmade line, now increasingly easier to come by in Southern California. Seed People's market is located within The Camp, a non-traditional shopping experience packed with cool stores, great restaurants (Taco Asylum is the standout if you ask me) and tons of people cruising around.

When I dropped off the goods, the friendly crew greeted me with enthusiasm and a bunch of great questions about the product and process.  Seed is packed with great brands, large and small. They offer a wide range from Patagonia and Filson to much smaller craftsman-type goods such as pottery, jewelry and paintings.

I am proud to expand the line in the Orange County and look forward to working with Seed for a long time.

North Menswear

A couple months back I noticed a new menswear shop on Glenneyre Street in downtown Laguna Beach.  I stopped in one afternoon and met Drew who was quick with the backstory on every product that my girlfriend and I looked at. I learned that they place a heavy emphasis on American made clothing and accessories.  Brands such as Taylor Stitch, Red Wing Heritage, Imogine + Willy, and Apolis are just some of the companies that make up the collection in this carefully curated shop.  I was thrilled when the owner, Pete, agreed to see how a few of the Headlands Handmade goods would do in his store.  They quickly sold a few wallets and invited me this past Sunday to test out my new letter stamps. I monogrammed some wallets, made a few comb holsters, hung out and chatted with customers. The next time you are in Laguna, stop into North Menswear and say hi to Pete and Drew.
