It's that time of year again! We've been hosting our Backyard Bazaar for about two years now and this time around we're gearing up for SXSW. Come out and shop for all your festival needs and buy some amazing goodies from various local Austin vendors. Check out the post below to learn a bit about each one of our vendors!! We hope to see you there March 12th-13th from 12pm-6pm.
We'll also be hosting a Pop Up with Thinx in the shop! The ultimate shopping experience during SXSW for both the out-of-towners and the local natives. Now, let's get to know the goods....
ZIG ZAG PATCH
Since 2014 Zig Zag Patch Co. has been creating free motion embroidered patches of high quality and poor taste. Uninspired by the lack of patch choices for rebellious females, it is their mission to make something exciting for everyone! All of their patches are handmade and drawn by hand, then freehand stitched on a single needle sewing machine. BONUS....Jane will have her machine with her and can do custom patches for y'all during the event!!!
SWEET LEAF JEWELRY
Sweet Leaf Silver brings to you her collection of INSANE silver jewelry pieces. This is one booth you won't want to miss out on!! Come prepared to bedazzle your arms, fingers, ears and necks with only the most bad ass silver and turquoise jewelry your eyes have ever seen.
Lunar Nourishment is a healing platform and offering that provides rituals and tools for empowerment, healthy living and hormone balancing. These body products are made by the ladies who run Lunar Nourishment in their kitchen in Austin, and are 100% organic, fair trade and ethically sourced. They say that our skin should be treated like the tongue; if you wouldn't eat it, you shouldn't put it on your skin! We wholeheartedly agree, and if you do too, come stop by their booth at the Bazaar.
REALM is the brain child of Vanessa Crook, who turns visual whims into functioning products. She creates graphics that draw on that love of one liners and playfulness, acting on impulse and drawing heavily from her sketch books. She makes every pattern, every textile, and every embroidery from start to finish in her little work shop. She loves spending time on each piece and creating one of a kind little gems. Find your own gem at the bazaar!!
Oren Porterfield of Ritual Goods, creates a line of handmade essential oil products to cleanse the the spirit and awaken the senses. From her delicious Cassia Bar Soap filled with organic goats milk, coconut oil, patchouli, cassia bark, sandalwood, and coffee bean exfoliators to her amazing collection of botanical perfumes mixed with all the right essential oils your olfactory senses dream of, one smell and you'll be hooked! Check them out in person at her booth!!
RAINY PARADE PRESS/BUTTERDAYS
Rainyparadepress was born out of the desire to make Emily Jackson's drawings come to life. She started making wearable and functional pieces to showcase her never ending love of type and fonts mixed with sarcastic and dark phrases and expressions. She also happens to make delicious caramels!!! Butterdays began with a love of sweet and buttery things, something she shared with her grandad who was limited to having his dose of butter on Saturdays and Sundays, hence making the weekend "butterdays". Check out both at her booth!!
KATE O'FARRELL OF GREYSTONES
Greystones is the work of Textile artist, Kate O'Farrell, a second generation artist following a family dedication to crafts and an excellence in manufacturing. A focus on the juxtaposition between modern design and heritage crafts goes back to an upbringing where Craft fairs were run from the family home, Greystones. She'll be selling some of her backstrap woven camera straps, guitar straps, and more!! Definitely one to not miss.
Synjin is a visual artist/DJ that has been showing around her prints around the country for the last year. At art shows she started doing "shitty OR fucking great portraits" to talk to viewers beyond mild conversation. You can get sit for a portrait at her booth and boogie to some tunes!

SOUL REBEL VINTAGE
Soul Rebel Vintage is a mobile vintage shop. They draw inspiration from indigenous roots, and focus on providing customers with unique pieces to add to their eclectic wardrobe collections while staying on trend. You usually need to book an appointment to visit with these lovely ladies, but come to the Bazaar and check out their products without having to call in! They say life is too short to wear boring clothes, and ain't that the truth.
**Sunday March 13th Only**
Sarah Leigh of Cointrelle Vintage, started 'picking' vintage clothes from thrift stores at the tender age of 13, which she then talked squatter punks (18+ w id!) into reselling on her behalf to stores in Portland. Six years and one state later she founded her first vintage clothing shop. Seventeen years and three states later she's still going strong. She specializes in fun, easy to wear ladies dresses in excellent condition - at affordable prices. When she isn't reliving the 90s, she's wishing it were the 60s or 70s.
