In December, we reported that South Park boutique Make Good won a design consultation by "Rue Magazine" and $5,000 redesign from American Express OPEN and Etsy.
More than 200 boutiques across the country participated in the sweepstakes, which asked each store to host a local Etsy seller on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 29. Make Good brought in local designer James Crouch and his handcrafted lamps for his chance at retail sales in a more traditional setting.
The owners of Make Good, Jon and Sophia Hall, have been busy enhancing the store using the $5,000 prize and are ready to reveal it all at an upcoming party dubbed "Remade."
On Saturday, Feb. 7, Councilmember Todd Gloria will support the local business' extraordinary achievement starting at 3 p.m., alongside local artisans that design much of the inventory.
Guests in attendance can enjoy a $25 gift card giveaway to the first 25 customers, grub from Tacos La Mezcla food truck, live jazz music, a photo booth and beats by DJ Ala. As part of the reveal, there will be a large pop-up marketplace featuring products from 12 local vendors including Val's Art Studio, Pippi Lane, Harken, Alpaca India and Cali Sunshine Soap.
Make Good has been featuring local artists from San Diego and Tijuana since 2010. Today, they have over 130 artist products featured in the store, located on Fern St.
