By working with local experts, artists, and artisan food purveyors, we hope to share with you some of the people and products we love. Below are descriptions and links to several of our current collaborators.

Ezra Arthur (Custom Leather Goods)

At the height of the economic downturn, small factories – the lifeblood of the American economy – closed at an alarming rate. Skilled trades and first-rate manufacturing methods were abandoned. Ezra Arthur sought to save this crucial component of American manufacturing. He bought the century-old equipment and built the facility in the heart of Phoenix where the company remains today. Now owned by four brothers who are honoring their grandfather’s name, they craft lifestyle accessories worthy of everything he stood for. By combining modern engineering with century-old practices, they handcraft beautiful keepsakes that are made to last.

Lafayette Avenue Ceramics (Hand Thrown Ceramic Pottery)

Jillian moved to Phoenix in 2008 from Philadelphia to major in ceramics at Arizona State University, where she fell in love with the heat and the sunsets. She created Lafayette Avenue Ceramics on this foundation: connect, nourish, sustain. By creating the dishes that holds the food that brings people together, she is able to connect people, nourish their bodies, and provide sustainability to their lives. She loves sharing her passion and knowledge of sustainable living through the business.

Blue Door Ceramics (Custom Handcrafted Dinnerware)

Each piece of handmade ceramic dinnerware by Christiane Barbato is designed and crafted one by one for a completely unique and artistic aesthetic. Born in Brazil, Christiane uses her love of nature and vast world travels as inspiration. At the age of forty, she left the business world and began to pursue a career in her passion, creating Blue Door Ceramics in Phoenix. She spends much of her time now exploring the Arizona outdoors and using what she sees in her creations.

Eunoia Naturals (Aromatherapy Mists)

Originating from a small farmhouse in Northern Michigan, a few aroma-therapists began experimenting with essential oils and herbs in pursuit of creating the perfect blend of energies. Over two decades, they were able to compile a selection of the finest essential oils from around the globe. Upon studying their techniques and developing her own, Stacie Teneyck founded Eunoia Naturals in Phoenix, a brand that promotes wellness. All products are completely free of all harmful toxins: no alcohol, no parabens, no artificial colors or fragrances, and no synthetic chemical preservatives. They do not test on animals and are non-GMO. All natural is their motto…Happiness, health, and wellness is their passion.
