This is one of my local California stores that has been around a long time—1969! They are basically a fiber art supply store, so there are a lot of things you may not be interested in, but I’m listing them here because fiber arts are about putting art on fabric and clothing, and they carry a good selection of natural fiber fabrics, clothing and other dyeables that can be used “undyed.” They have many types of cotton fabrics, including some organic and even 100% cotton for making sweat clothes, hemp and hemp blends, linen and linen blends, and many silk fabrics. Also extra wide natural fiber fabrics undyed for curtains or bedlinens. Clothing for babies, kids, women and men include such things as undyed cotton tank dress for only $16 and cotton sweat pants and sweat shirts for under $20. Clothing is not organic, but no dye and all sewn with cotton thread. Plus bags, wallets, totes. Yarns, lace, ribbons. Almost anything and everything. And they sell all kinds of dyes and markers (not all nontoxic) to make your own creations.
This is the online boutique of the daughter of one of my long-time readers, who has done a fine job of putting together collections of organic cotton and ethical clothing for women and men. Read product descriptions to choose items that meet your specific needs.

I found this honey at a local farmer’s market and couldn’t resist flavors with names like Bodega Bay Blackberry, Tulare Twist and Wild Mynt. I’ve eaten enough honey to know that every honey has it’s own distinct flavor depending on where the bees are feeding, but these flavors were bold and lively. They literally jumped off the spoon. These honey makers work directly with the beekeepers to develop these concentrated flavors. I bought four jars. “At Love A Bee, our honeys are all varietals that we source from some of the most unique places. For each varietal, we develop a taste profile so when you buy a jar of our honey, you know its color and flavour characteristics (all 100% natural and unadulterated) in advance, and you also know how it links back to its point of origin. We like to think we’re successful at what we do, and our recent (2017) National Heirloom Award proves it.”
