Lotus Moon Market

Hi everyone,

 

Lotus Moon Market

One of our greatest pleasures is seeing new businesses open up and to be able to tell you about them. One is Lotus Moon Market at 264 Vista Village Dr Suite A, Vista. They are open now but will be having a grand opening soon too. You will also be able to see the owner, Sup Goods, at the Vista Vintage and Makers Market on April 22 downtown. We love that market and will be attending.

Here are a few words the owner Sophia wrote about her new venture:

“Lotus Moon Market is a curated handmade market featuring artisans locally and globally.

The Lotus symbolizes rebirth and patience; while the Moon symbolizes enlightenment, and is the light through the darkness.

The goal for Lotus Moon Market is to help people around the world. We want to shine the light on artisans who bust their butts off to feed their families, villages and communities. We practice fair trade, anti sweat shop, and anti slavery.

We want to share with the world what beautiful creations these

artisans make from around the globe.”

This is the first brick and mortar store for her and we all know how hard that is, so let’s try to support her, go over if you are nearby, watch for a website soon, and follow on Instagram now where she has some gorgeous items posted from other countries. We are so blessed here, it’s great to have a chance to support these hard workers. We will be posting more pics also so keep an eye out.

Our Vintage Emporia

Hi everyone,

For some time we have been asking business owners and vendors to write their stories for us. (Still waiting for some of you!) Today we have one for you. Our Vintage Emporia 719 E Route 66 Glendora Ca., is one of the stores we regularly visit. Watching it evolve has been a fun experience, just as many of the places we go.

In their words:

Vintage Emporia

The Evolution

“What once began as a hobby, has transformed into so much more that we could have imagined. We are amazed and humbled every time a customer walks in.

It began with two companies who started out in warehouses, selling goods every other weekend. We joined forces and opened an actual storefront. Before long, customers became artists and vendors selling their creations and found objects. Each with their own story to tell.

Every inch of the shop is filled with interesting objects-handmade, new and found. Over 20 small businesses sell goods with us, in addition to our own creations. It’s a place of wonder and amazement. You can find everything from handmade reclaimed wood furniture to beautiful vintage pieces to decorate your home. We have unique home decor, handmade gifts, and beautifully curated vintage items. It truly has become a wonderland for the Home.”

Vintage Emporia

This area-Glendora, Covina, Monrovia and surrounding cities- is becoming a mecca for the vintage, antique, reuse, re purpose type of business. We love all these stores and promote them on our Instagram often. So scroll through it, make a plan, and get out and visit them all. Be sure and tell them We’re Mad About sent you!!!
