Two months into these very wild times, and CMD is definitely hanging in there. Earlier this week, we welcomed back Julia, the third and final leg of our NY teamtrifecta. Kelsey, Jen and Sam feel as much a part of the crew as ever before - even after moving several states away from the NY and SF CMD locales. Our team is now scattered all over the country in NY, CT, CA and OR. Together, we're working to adapt and carve our path into these new landscapes ahead.
Recently, I was interviewed by both 7x7 Magazine and Craft Industry Alliance on CMD's methods of pivoting, how COVID-19 is affecting business so far, and what our plans to re-open look like for the future.
We're all in this together. It warms my heart to see our neighbors come together to support one another through these challenging times. I'm optimistic and eager to see a vibrant Valencia once again. It's so important to shop small - now more than ever. Here's a list of some of my favorite Bay Area small businesses to show some love to, if you're able. And, if you're hungry... here are some local spots to grab a delicious bite. Book a FaceTime appointment with me for after you pick up your order and grab a friend or two! We'll have ourselves a jewelry happy hour!
CMD is now offering curbside pickup! If you live in the Bay Area, you can place your order online or over the phone and pick it up at The Shop Tuesday - Saturday between 12pm - 4pm PST. Please call or text ahead (415.637.7762) to make sure we have your desired item(s) in stock. We'll set up staggered pickup times and payments will be collected ahead of time so there's no need for physical exchange.

A little backstory: It was never part of my plan for CMD to have its own storefront. But one day, after years of living in [...]

2020 - what a year! I remember getting off the plane on March 11th to arrive in SF for our annual Sample Sale. At that time, the virus was becoming more pronounced and worrisome. For better or worse, our mayor called a Shelter in Place order on March 16th. That day felt like the beginning of a massive shift for our small business [...]
