Neighbor Nicole Spear lives down the block from me in Precitaville, and recently she mentioned that she’d launched her own small business to manufacture and distribute a line of handmade lip balm under the Metta Good brand.
Lip balm for locavores! Turns out, that’s a thing.
Bernalwood invited Neighbor Nicole to tell us more about her products, and she also shared news about a pop-up event happening this weekend. She says:
Metta Good is handmade, small batch, artisan lip balms inspired by love and nature.
It began as an idea when I was at home with my newborn. I wanted to create a natural product that was not only safe for people and the planet but also looked good too. Creating a natural product married my interests of plants, design, and making things by hand.
It took me two years to launch, butI began selling products in December 2016, and now Metta Good is in six stores, including Succulence on Cortland and Perch in Glen Park.
Metta Good’s first Pop-Up Boutique Bazaar is happening at Woods Island Club on Treasure Island this weekend, Saturday and Sunday May 12-13. I’m co-producing the event with another SF Made member Natasha Natasha Chatlein of Sheek Organics.
Pop-Up Boutique Bazaar is an opportunity to shop for local handmade, small-batch goodies while hanging out at a beachy brewery on Treasure Island. Bring Mom and indulge her with luxe handmade bath and body products, gorgeous succulent arrangements, artisan jewelry, and candles all made by Bay Area local makers. You can also sample Treasure Island’s first brewery, Woods Island Club, located in a historic airplane hangar. There will also be tasty bites from El Porteño Empanadas and an inflatable slide for the kids.
The Pop-Up Boutique Bazaar happens at:
Woods Island Club
422 Clipper Cove Way on Treasure Island
Sat. May 13, 12-6pm
Sun. May 14, 12-5pm
All the details are on the Facebook Event page.
