This Saturday, Love Local and Big Plan Holdings will host their first Spring Maker’s Market. The event will feature several stalls with local artisans, designers, food items, and health products. Located in the heart of 12 South, make sure to stop by to support these independent brands with strong ties to Nashville.
Natalie Busby is a local clothing designer who creates beautiful garments for women using sustainable, high-quality materials. Busby always wanted to have the brand manufacture its clothes within the USA; everything is designed in the studio in Nashville, and the products are made in small batches in a factory near the city. In an interview with PURE Living Nashville last year, Natalie commented: “It was a core principle for me. I think the south has a very cool manufacturing history. There used to be a lot of garments made in the southeast especially, and a lot of it disappeared in the 1970s and 1980s when things moved overseas. I found a great manufacturing partner in Nashville, and found myself visiting a lot and just fell in love with the city.”
Potter Ray is a locally-based artisan clay jewelry maker. Her stall will feature a selection of her bright, eye-catching earrings that are hand-made in small batches. Nashville brand The Roosevelts Candle Co create candles that are inspired by the trees, flowers and the landscape unique to each of America’s National Parks and Monuments. Hand-mixed and poured in Music City, the brand uses lead-free cotton wicks, 100% soy wax and fragrance and essential oils that are free of phthalates.
CBD brand 3rd Eye High will have a stall to showcase its CBD subscription box that is specifically curated for women’s health and beauty. For gifts and homeware options, Tenn Prairie is a local company that produces candles, matches and more. For those looking for a delicious snack, Upstate Pierogi will be on hand to sell its Polish-style pierogis, as well as East Tasty, confectioners and sweet-treat creators from East Nashville.
