Artisans, Boutiques & Rummage Sales for the Holidays

Nov 10, 2014

Louis Jane Design_Pasadena CALouise Wannier of Louis Jane Design is a textile designer, clothier, photographer, philanthropist, and soon-to-be author will be participating in Pasadena Jewish Temple & Center’s annual artisan boutique. She will be exhibiting and selling the company’s new line of coin purses, travel bags, jewelry pouches, and tote bags. Each “art fabric” is developed for digital printing on organic textiles such as silks, cottons, and linens, and are handmade in America.

Come shop for the holidays or maybe get yourself a little something. Artists and cottage food vendors from our congregation as well as the community will sell their work and goods with a portion of the proceeds donated back to PJTC Sisterhood. And after your shopping is complete, enjoy a glatt kosher lunch from the Kosher Palate food truck. (

Other participants include Ellen Dinerman Jewelry/Acorn Works, Little Muse Designes, M. Greenwood Jams, Wicked Bean Candles, Olimini Olive Oils, Karen Brown (graphics), VictorPeter Ltd. with ties made from vintage kimonos, and Zazu Faure with stuffed animals made from re-purposed clothing.
