Raya Tie Back
The Raya Tie Back from Shop Jitana is ideal for those who have a perpetual summer in their hearts… and want to keep a bit of it at home, too. Decorated in tortoise shells for an authentic coastal feel, this curtain tieback can be used to tie curtains together, hang on door knobs or as decor to ornate your coffee table.

Smokey Tall Glasses
This glass set is perfect for the host or hostess who is always having guests over. The set of four is vintage, in good condition, and has a weighted bottom. The company, Mandana Blvd, was founded by Cristina Ramos and Nu Goteh after they moved cross country from Brooklyn, NY to San Fransisco, CA. They found it challenging to furnish a new place with the expenses that come with a booming tech city, so they opted for the untraditional approach – rummaging through flea markets, estate sales, and Craigslist… and thus, Mandana Blvd was born.

Bote Woven Storage Basket
This handmade basket is perfect for storing extra blankets or using as a laundry basket. The best part about it is it’s produced by Nipomo, a California-based company run by a mother and daughter duo who collaborate with artisans from their home country of Mexico. The two take pride in producing products that highlight their Mexican and Californian roots. Shop here.
Peruvian Wall Mirror
As is told on the Luna Sundara website, this wall mirror was inspired by the sun that warms Peru’s Cuzco Valley. It was hand-carved by artisans using centuries-old techniques that have previously been used in the creation of religious sculptures. Luna Sundara’s mission is to support local artists and crafters in Latin American by collaborating with the artists and selling their works on their website. Shop here.
