Larkspur, California (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
Just in time for Mother’s Day and other gift-giving occasions, Marin Country Mart is sponsoring a special shopping event with Remodelista and Gardenista, two online style sourcebooks that also host specialty retail markets in selected cities. The Markets invite Bay Area dwellers to shop a curated collection of over 30 specialty retailers that reflect Remodelista’s aesthetic and sustainable design focus. The Marin Country Mart events will be held on Saturday, May 9, from 10 am – 5 pm in Building B for Remodelista and under the Farmers’ Market tent for Gardenista.
Founded in Marin, Remodelista and Gardenista have an online audience of over 1.5 million readers a month. Their Markets, about four to eight annually, are tailored to each community, and showcase favorite local designers and specialty retailers for the home and garden. Held last year in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and London, the Markets drew thousands of dedicated fans to peruse and purchase the range of considered goods.
For the May event at Marin Country Mart – the first Market of 2015 – the editors-in chief, Julie Carlson and Michelle Slatalla, both Marin mothers who will be at the event, have hand-picked artisans, designers and shop-creators who represent the cultivated aesthetic that has made the sites so popular. Among the more than 30 vendors at the upcoming Markets are Blockshop, Kathleen Whitaker, Pope Valley, Silvia Song, Scout Regalia and TW Workshop. Goods for the home include textiles, ceramics, furniture and clothing. Among the many garden items are botanically inspired Mother's Day gifts, raised bed kits, canvas tool bags, and glamorous camping equipment.
In the Gardenista tent, there will be a range of DIY projects for adults and kids, including a Parisian Mother’s Day bouquet demonstration. The Farmers’ Market will also offer food and drink for visitors’ enjoyment, including mimosas to celebrate the holiday.
For those who want to capture the spirit of Remodelista and take it home, the 2013 book 'Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home' is available at DIESEL, A Bookstore. Like the website, the manual is a clear sourcebook of inspirational rooms and architectural projects, plus online and retail sourcing ideas. The book reflects Remodelista’s editorial philosophy of value, sustainable design and longevity, rather than throw-away design.

ABOUT MARIN COUNTRY MART
In 2009, J.S. Rosenfield & Co. purchased Larkspur Landing, transforming it into Marin Country Mart through extensive upgrades and new retail offerings with independent brands that better reflect the preferences of residents and visitors. The open-air shopping destination, comprised of 12 barn buildings and over 173,000 square feet of space, features appealing boutiques, dining options, services and special events (see purveyors below). Marin Country Mart has two sister venues in Southern California, Brentwood Country Mart and Montecito Country Mart, which are favorites among residents for exceptional shopping and dining. All are conceived with a spirit of community in mind, as lively gathering places that evoke simpler, more gracious times. Inspired by the idea of the village square, Marin Country Mart is a welcoming destination where local residents and visitors enjoy talented artisans and entrepreneurs who ply their trades with pride and skill, in a congenial environment shared with families, neighbors and friends.
