Chilly Days Call for Hot Local Designers!

Lucky for you we have gathered Austin’s hottest: Mingle Design, Gypsy Born Designs, Tiva Rose for Etra, and Chelsea Grace Design.

Come get your fix while sipping on adult libations and enjoying Wintery treats from Dishalicious!

Wildflower Organics' very own Tiva Rose reveals a sense of elegant utility in her fabulous pieces. Her signature leather and chain necklaces abide by a striking simplicity that draws attention to her beautifully earthen materials.

Andrea Moore’s wearable art is so called due to each piece’s individuality. Her inspirations, nature and music, are directly translated into her pieces that incorporate unexpected elements and glamorous materials that will surely bring out your inner gypsy.

Wildflower’s Chelsea Grace channels the free spirit and a whimsical femininity in her fabulous feather and vintage creations.

To top off the night, we are thrilled to bring Rachel Roberts of Mingle Design back to Austin one show. Mingle Design has long since defined elegance in her delicate metal creations that have been donned by the chicest of Austin.

And don't forget! Once you've found your fix of jewelry, Wildflower has a fabulous array of perfect holiday gifts including fragrant candles, buckwheat pillows, throws and lounge wear.

Reuse to Make Unique Pieces for Your Home!

At Wildflower we like to reuse materials whenever we can to help reduce waste and better the earth.

So we took some old wooden pallets and built this work table our of them. This way we can reuse old materials and create an area where we can prepare items for our store so that they look great for you!

Check out some of the other cool things people have done with wooden pallets:

Maybe you don't have wooden pallets sitting around but check out what you can do if you have lots of old newspapers.
What creative a solution to finding a new accent for a wall in your home!

Or maybe you have unexplainable surplus of wine corks, you can use them to make a fashionable clock, frame, or mirror!

A Plastic Bag Free Austin!

We love the idea of Austin being greener by using reusable bags instead of the wasteful plastic bags!

The council voted unanimously to direct city staffers to begin writing a ban with the help of retailers, environmental groups and other. The ban and a plan to gradually phase it in will be presented to the council by November. Council members also asked staffers to gather information about a possible band on paper bags, as well as plastic ones, and about possibly charging fees for so-called single-use bangs instead of banning them outright. Details such as whether small stores should be exempt and the penalties for not complying with a ban will be worked out during the four-month process.

Mayor Lee Leffingwell said Austin residents use about 263 millions plastic bags every year, forcing the city to pay more than 800,00 per year in pollution and litter management costs.

Although the city will push for a total ban of plastic bags will still be use for newspaper distribution as well as pet cleanup at locations across the city. Leffingwell said he expects enforcement of the ordinance to be directed at retailers themselves and not consumers.

Cities such as San Francisco, California, Washington, D.C., Portland, Oregon, and Brownsville in South Texas have all enacted plastic bag bans that were not as controversial as people might think.

We're excited to get this initiative started! Are you?

We help out by using recyclable paper bags and when we can't use paper we use biodegradable plastic bags!

You can purchase a reusable bag at select retailers in Austin including Central Market, HEB, Randalls, Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens and Whole Foods Market. Each of these retailers sell the bags for about $1 each.

And what do you do with that huge pile of plastic bags sitting in your home?

Plastic bags can be recycled at the store-fronts of select retailers in Austin including Central Market, HEB, Randalls, Wal-Mart and Whole Foods Market. Paper Bags can be recycled curbside in Austin or at the Ecology Action Recycling Center. Cycled Plastics is working with participating dry cleaners to collect plastic dry cleaning bags.

Or you can get creative and make beautiful artwork with those bags like Virginia Fleck!

New York native Virginia Fleck is making an impact with her recycled artwork. Virginia has made plastic bags her muse, and collects thousands of them from all areas. She then cuts them into strips and circles and creates what is called mandala or a circular collage. The resulting works are beautiful orbs of color and pattern; one would never assume they were made form garbage grocery bags.

Delight your senses at farmers markets in Austin!

At Wildflower Organics, we love organic bedding, mattresses and baby things... but every now and then we simply MUST give a big shout-out to our farmers.  Especially in this heat, it's important to support our local farmers.

Sourcing our food locally is extremely important. By Buying locally, we can stimulate the local economy and reduce the energy being used to transport food from region to region. Sustainable agriculture involves food production methods that are healthy, do not harm the environment , respect workers, are humane to animals, provide fair wages to farmers, and support farming communities. 

Small, local farms are run by farmers who live on their land and work hard to preserve it. By being good stewards of the land, seeking out local markets, minimizing packaging, and harvesting food only when it is ready to consume, farmers can significantly reduce their environmental impact.  In fact, studies show that sustainable agricultural practices can actually increase food production by up to 79$ while at the same time actively reducing the effexts of farming on climate change through carbon sequestration.

The goals of the Austin Farmers Market are to increase the economic vitality of local farmers and small businesses; increase awareness, knowledge and action among the Central Texas population about how to positively impact the Central Texas food system and their own health; and create vibrant economically and socially diverse city-centered gathering places.
