Surf + Sand owner Lauren Friis is hosting her annual Makers Market, where they support other local women-owned businesses through creativity!

There will be more than 9 vendors there (10 including us) and possibly more coming.

Women’s and kids’ clothing, shoes, jewelry, photography, art, accessories, flowers, and more!

Some of these artists are local Mill Valley moms, others are Bay Area natives.

Many of these artists have won awards and much more!

Senna Case is owned by local Mill Valley social media influencer Chantelle Paige.

Elizée Shoes is a brand that has been worn by the likes of Brooke Shields. 

“If you haven’t already, stop by their new Summer Pop-Up with the popular swimwear brand LEFT ON FRIDAY, founded by the former designers of lululemon. They have a selection with over 300 swimsuits in stock! Get ready for summer!” 

Aerena Gallery (neighbor) is also joining in and featuring makers of their own.

Since she opened her beach-centric Surf + Sand shop in February 2022, Friis has paid homage to beach culture and sustainability. In doing so, she’s deeply engaged with her customers and community in a variety of ways, including co-hosting a post-Mill Valley Film Festival 20th anniversary screening of Blue Crush, the 2002 film based on “Life’s Swell,” author Susan Orlean’s 1998 Outside magazine story about a real-life group of young teenage surfer girls in Hana, a small town in Maui, Hawaii.
