Even if you’ve never picked up an issue of Garden & Gun in your life (you should — it’s not just guns and gardens), you’re probably at least a little aware of the Charleston-based lifestyle magazine’s Made in the South Awards. Each year, a team of judges crowns southern-made products in the categories of food, crafts, outdoors, style, drink, and home, which are presented in all their aesthetic beauty in G&G‘s December/January issue. Past winners include Southern Craft Creamery from Florida, McQueen Pottery from Tennessee, One Love Organics from Georgia, and Dallas’ own Julie Cohn Design and Stampede 66’s (RIP) chipotle-tamarind hot sauce.
This is all to say that G&G is bringing select Made in the South alumni to Highland Park Village’s monthly Local market this Saturday, and I’m sure it will be as aesthetically pleasing and soothing as this G&G recipe for Satsuma Whiskey Cider. A few items to expect are mixes from Blackberry Farms, bourbon balls form Pappy Van Winkle Goods (a name you can surely trust for bourbon balls), duck fat caramels from Olive & Sinclair, Tom Beckbe sporting goods, and accessories from Carson & Company.
While you’re shopping, head over to Mockingbird side of Highland Park Village and make an appointment with a stylist at Armarium’s pop-up, where you can shop and rent pieces from the relatively new, celeb-cosigned (we’re talking Beyonce-level) brand Dundas, whose fall collection and one-of-a-kind archival pieces will be in Dallas debut through October 21.
Pop-ups come and go, but Goop was supposed to leave back in, like, June though, so you really never know.
