Last year the local nonprofit 1-to-1 Movement kicked off the first edition of America's Finest Film Fest, featuring locally produced short films by San Diego filmmakers. As part of the film festival, 1-to-1 is gracious enough to include 50 vendors representing local makers, of which we'll be one.
It's a great time of local films, food, drink and some of San Diego's finest makers, and it happens Saturday, August 8th at 5pm at Irwin Jacobs Hall, 5535 Morehouse Dr., San Diego, Ca..

Okay, suffice to say we're feelin' the love. It's been a whirlwind week of being featured in San Diego Magazine's annual Best of San Diego, My So Cal'd Life's feature on "Off-the-beaten-path Guide to 24 Hours in San Diego," and this morning we were on Channel 6's "San Diego Living" show as part of the 1-to-1 Movement's America's Finest Film Festival.
Next up, on August 2, Destination San Diego (Cox channel 4) will include a segment filmed with Sophia of Make Good on San Diego's local arts movement.
Stoked to be in My Socal'd Life's feature on an Off-the-Beaten-Path Guide to 24 Hours in San Diego! Mentioned alongside our neighbors and collaborators, Junc.Life and Bad Madge, we can't think of a better honor than to be included in such an insider's take on where to go and what to do in San Diego.
We've had shout-outs from a variety of publications, organizations and individuals, and it always feels great. Being included in San Diego Magazine's "Best of San Diego 2015" list is especially sweet. When we started this experiment we call Make Good, one driving motivation was that the local handcrafting artisans of San Diego and Tijuana we're represented well here. It was a struggling movement still below the radar, where remarkable talented individuals were creating and innovating, yet had few avenues to connect with people who wanted to support their efforts and buy local.
Since we opened our doors five years ago, we're thrilled to see how local artisans are increasingly being championed citywide. New stores are opening, more craft fairs are happening and the people of San Diego increasingly show support for the local artisan movement.
We're also glad to see the support of local moving beyond the realm of popular culture and into the mainstream understanding of what is good in the marketplace. Knowing where it's made, by whom and how are increasingly asked by conscious individuals who recognize the significant impact they have when choosing what to buy. And we think that's pretty good.
Thank you San Diego Magazine, artisans of San Diego and Tijuana and the good people of these twin cities for giving us a place to do what we love.
