A few weeks back, we found some cool little leather clutches and had been sitting on them for a while for no reason other than “it wasn’t time to share.” A few days ago, those same clutches popped up onto Svpply and we went, “OH! It’s that clutch!!” It was the right time to share! The goods are from Jacks Red Barn, a pair of vintage collectors and leather clutch makers in Los Angeles.
I feel like I was waiting all Summer for MessHall to open. I kept hearing buzzes that it had people like Julian Cox involved, that it was (another) new take on home foods, and–mostly–that it would be competition for the old standby, Little Dom’s.

We all know that person who is super into grilling. Whenever you have a barbecue, you invite this person over and you hand him or her the burgers,
demanding asking, “Can you cook these for me, please??” Going to their house for a meal always means grilling and, if they’re a good Grillmaster (as we call him or her), they have all these weirdo tricks and sauces and this and that on deck at all times. These people are undoubtedly those who shop at Light My Fire at the Original Farmers Market. Here’s something for these people: The Sauceman’s Satchel, a convenient condiment-on-the-go item for “those people.”
So you want to start your own urban garden because all of your friends are doing it? Easy. Go to a store, buy some seeds, put them in dirt, and you are done. Right? No. Not that easy.

Thankfully, Farmscape is here to help.
Zack Herrera is a Los Angeles based photographer with a unique view of Downtown. To him, it’s a dark and mysterious area home to a unique magic. He cleverly relates DTLA to Oz, the fantasy land in L. Frank Baum’s classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and uses it as the point of departure for a set of photos that portrays Downtown as a green concrete metropolis.
