Seaside Makers Collective brings together the best of the best artisan made products from the Santa Barbara County into one interactive shopping experience. The newly transformed space located in between Oreana Winery and Mony’s Tacos is a curated collection of local art and gifts for bath, body & home, put together by Kristin Fraser of The Grapeseed Co. and Jules Kramer of Jules by the Sea. “This is a dream come true to land in the heart of the Funk Zone with this extremely talented group of makers and artists,” explained Jules Kramer, who will be managing the Santa Barbara store. “The collective will highlight and celebrate the amazing artisans in our community by offering much more than a great place to shop… we will tell the stories behind the makers, and also look forward to hosting Scent Bar parties, pop-ups, live-painting and workshops in our event room space and parking lot,” said Fraser.
Fraser opened Seaside Makers flagship store in Carpinteria, CA in September 2018. Response from the community was so positive that she partnered with Kramer to open a second location in Santa Barbara. Seaside Makers Funk Zone opened doors the first week of November with The Grapeseed Co., Jules By the Sea, Jess Conti Leather Goods, Indigo Sol, Meadow Rose Photo Art, Blue Planet Eyewear, Taste of California, and a beautiful collection of art by Karin Shelton, Pedro De La Cruz, Alana Clumeck, Katie Kramer, Anthony Barbaria and Kelly Clause.
