Let’s Go Local: Pottery Barn Hosts Our First Ever Makers Market


Let’s face it — you can find all sorts of beautiful things in a Pottery Barn store, but jewelry usually isn’t one of them. But on the night of May 29th, things were looking a little different in our Chestnut Street store in San Francisco.


For our first ever Makers Market, we worked with Square Market to host local, independent artisans to sell their handmade goods in our store and connect with the local community.


Handmade jewelry, iPad cases, leather totes and graphic prints were artfully placed on Pottery Barn furniture throughout the store.


The five local artisans — Honey & Bloom, Zelma Rose, Hellbent, DODOcase and Joshu+Vela — mixed and mingled with about 100 customers who couldn’t wait to learn more about their local artisan community.


It was so inspiring to see such talented work from our San Francisco community — stay tuned for more!


The open house with local artist in San Francisco is a great idea but can you make this a corporate wide event? That way those of us in other cities can have the same pleasurable experience.
