An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until December 24, 2019

SLOcally Made is a lady-run collective of 25+ local makers and artists who have come together to bring form, identity, and purpose to the concept of shopping local this holiday season. Our artists have reimagined traditional trades such as leatherwork, embroidery, painting, sewing, metalsmithing, hide tanning, letterpress, and more to curate a unique selection of handcrafted, contemporary and locally created goods. Visit us at our pop-up shop at 881 Higuera St. in downtown San Luis Obispo from Dec. 7-24, 11AM-8PM.

SLOcally Made is run by Sadie Rogers and Kerry Long, whose fathers have worked alongside each other as craftsmen on the Central Coast for over 30 years. While their daughters now follow in their footsteps, this collaboration has become a true family affair, and something born of sheer necessity.

Being a maker during the holidays is usually comprised of loading your car to and from markets all over the Central Coast for 4-6 solid weekends at the end of the year. We call this shlepping. And it’s exhausting. As we sat at our studios commiserating over the season that lie ahead, we were trying to come up with a way to have the community come to us. It would be easier on us, and easier on consumers who wanted to shop local during the holidays. Well ask and you shall receive.. a couple weeks after we got a call from The San Luis Obispo Collection offering us the old Muzio’s space on Monterey St. In a few short weeks – we had gathered 15 makers to give it all we got. Without anything like this being done around here before, we had no idea what to expect. We gave it all we got and BAM – the community showed up BIG TIME.

We don’t know what the future holds for SLOclly Made but what we do know is that it absolutely fills our cups to provide a one-stop makers-shop for the community to shop local during the holidays. What we also know is that it fills our cup to see the makers connect, form their own collaborations and focus their energy on telling their story rather than shlepping all holiday season long.
