Into The Woods Holiday Market

Steel Life participated in a local holiday market with Lila B. Design a few weeks ago in downtown Bend, Oregon.  After hosting a DIY Wreath Making Workshop with San Francisco’s Baylor Chapman, we whisked our products downtown to the historic Liberty Theater for the weekend’s event.

Wallis Creative and Found Natural Goods did an amazing job putting this event together! We were thrilled to be a part of it with other local artists including Karen Ruane, Ciera Rose and Katie Daisy.

Collaborating on a booth with Lila B. was great fun!  We were able to offer our ‘Small Batch’ Hangers and new Catchalls to attendees, along with Steel Life’s main collection. What a great way to kick off the holiday season!

DIY Wreath Making with Baylor Chapman

We kicked off the holiday season with Baylor Chapman of Lila B. Design last weekend at Celebrate the Season Boutique Garden Center in Bend, Oregon.  Baylor brought her D.I.Y. Wreath Making Kits up from San Francisco for attendees to create their own unique wreath.

We had music playing, a wood fire burning and the smell of fresh greens in the air!  To see if Lila B. Design has a workshop in your area, go to her Classes & Events page.  Baylor Chapman’s The Plant Recipe Book makes a great gift for the flower and plant lover on your list!

Thank you, Lila B. for helping us get into the Holiday Spirit!
