Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we are humbled as we reflect on all we have to be thankful for in 2018. We feel so lucky to be able to connect with everyone through Eclectic Goods, and are in disbelief by the support we receive. Eclectic Goods would not be possible without you all. Thank you. Truly. It also could not be possible without our artisans, who work their tails off each day to provide beautiful products to the world. We feel lucky to work with them, and want to give a special ‘Thankful For’ shout out.
Cali Vibes Candle Company
Cali Vibes Candle Co. is the brainchild of founders Anthony and Mariah. What started out as a passion project turned into a business in January 2018, and we love their incredible scents. Not only are these candles made of all-natural soy wax, but they are hand-poured right here in Orange County. Cheers to our neighbors and their continued success as a candle-making dynamic duo!
Kara Whitten is the owner and creative mastermind behind Kailo Chic, a radiant lifestyle brand based out of Austin, Texas. After starting her career in 2005 as a Chemical Engineer, Kara quickly realized she could not envision working in a lab for the rest of her career. 13 years later, she has now built an incredible company that aims to bring colorful crafts, artwork, and home decor to people’s lives. Thank you for bringing vibrant, joyful items to the world!
We source our vintage mudcloth pillows from West African Soninke tribes. These textiles are incredibly stylish and durable – perfect for any home. We also source products from other international artisans including textile makers in Turkey, the Ivory Coast, and Mali. We are blessed to get to share the work of such talented makers from all over the globe.
Andrea Luna Reece
Hailing from Costa Mesa, California, Andrea Luna Reece is one of our favorite artists around. Like Kara from Kailo Chic, Andrea started her career in a vastly different industry, but took a leap of faith to pursue her love for working with ceramics. Her fun use of color throughout her pieces brings energy and happiness to every space.
Another fellow Californian, Samantha Ceramics is based out of Long Beach, California. Each piece is entirely unique – hand-formed and individualistic. We love her use of lines in each product, and cannot get enough of her stylish wall hangings like this wonder:
