My picks have been all over the internets lately. What fun! Last week I was excited to curate a guide of local, ethical gift ideas for My list of 14 picks covers most of my SF favorites, from air plants at Paxton Gate to Early Jewelry at Candystore Collective and Renegade Holiday, which hits SF this weekend. This silk top by The Podolls is one I just snagged from Candystore and love! Read my full list here.

Mimi + Meg: Kansas City blogger Megan Biram posted a beautiful and amazing variety of guest gift guides this month, and mine hit the web on Tuesday. Isn’t Megan’s blog design beautiful? They didn’t hire her at Hallmark Cards for nothing. You can see the full post here.

PR Couture: What a treat to meet Crosby Noricks, founder of PR Couture, and have a Q&A on her blog in the same week! Crosby is a PR professional and has vowed to share her knowledge as much as possible. There is SO much to learn in the pages of her site. She’s working on a for-benefit jewelry line of her own (that sounds very exciting), so she invited me to participate in her series “Show Me the Pretty,” where she asks five questions of a designer, and the designer gets to ask five questions back to Crosby and her PR-pro network. I really enjoyed answering Crosby’s questions, and I can’t wait to see the answers to mine posted soon. If you’re into the fashion industry and don’t already follow this blog, you should start! You can read my Q&A here.

Storenvy: Even though you’re looking many of my gift picks in the face right now, I spent most of my gift-guiding time this season at the Storenvy blog! It was awesome working with Erin Loechner of Design For Mankind, Jessie Artigue of The Concrete Catwalk, Darius Monsef of COLOURlovers and Rachel Ryle of Tweety Got Back on their curated lists, and I loved filling in the blanks with several guides of my own. I think my favorites are 6 Gift Ideas for Moms and yesterday’s 12 Last-Minute Gift Picks from Indie Brands. You can view them all here.


  • Now who’s the “noteable internet person”? Jon had better be on his toes!

  • I would be interested in your thoughts on this site. It is family owned, no corporation, site. It is a site where the owner actually makes what you want and emails or phones you directly… no slick cookie cutter stuff. It is for seamstresses, performers, costumes and weird kinda stuff. prettyt much anything you want.
    I totally agree with fair price stuff and still try to shop at mom and dad shops as they are a dissapearing breed.(especially bakeries, butcher shops, shoe repair etc)
    The internet is going the same way with huge multi million corporations taking over shopping and websites BUYING advertising for loads of money to squeeze out the little guy. But this site has been going strong for 10 years.
    I am not a seamstress (I tried about 30 years ago and it was a mess) and I know how much work it all is. what is your take on internet business and the way it is going?
