Love: Fellow makers

More friends who make awesome things!

My friends Bethany and Tere Jensen operate their charming and adorable line 42nd and Orange out of a tiny sweet space in down town Encinitas, CA (located just north San Diego). I met Bethany years ago while living at the Dutch Boy Studios in Oakland and both of us have kept in touch as our business’s continue grow and shift. We most often run into each other these days when we both happen to be in the same show at the same time but I wish she was closer so I could stop in and visit her at her new(ish) shop all the time!

I was so excited for her when they moved into a space full time late last year! She gets to have people come buy to shop and say hello. She’s also been really proactive about new ways to have people come to the store- having fun open houses and even portrait days! Their blog is a great chronicle of all the fun people that stop in and and all the cute new products they are making to sell! Plus+++ sometimes she has cake and pie to share!!! How much better can it get? 🙂

This past weekend they had people come by to take mother’s day photos, which is such a sweet and thoughtful gift! Also jewelry made by bethany’s sister Jessica(fied) is available at the store! I swear this summer i’m gonna get down to see her and say hello!

If your anywhere in the area you should stop by and say hello! She’ll hook you up with everywhere else in encinitas you should go to and and prolly where to get the best lunch!
