Thanks for visiting Mineral + Matter! Sorry things look a little confusing, this is a placeholder/old blog until I get the website done for Mineral + Matter. Mineral + Matter started a little pop up shop at craft shows in Utah and is now a mobile boutique. Most goods are handmade by talented artisans and the truck is themed around the idea of a natural history museum meeting a space observatory. The preview opening is Friday, June 7th, 2013 at the Rooftop Concert Series in Provo, UT at 6pm. The Grand Opening is Saturday, June 15th at the new Granary Row in Salt Lake City from 10am to 11pm. An online shop is in the works too, for those of you who can't visit in person!
I have a new little project, a pop up shop! I love seeing what other artists make and hope to have my own brick and mortar store in the future, so this is a nice start. I'll be taking a selection of handmade goods from my favorite artisans around to various locations throughout the year. The first will be at Bijou Market in Provo, UT on April 13th and 14th and the second will be at Beehive Bazaar on May 10-12th, also in Provo, UT. If you're in Provo, don't miss the first show, because goods may change for the second one and there will be new artists represented at each pop up! Look for announcements on a new date in June in Salt Lake City! Check back here for updates or follow me on Twitter @NativeShop.
