Featured Artist: SapoVela Soap Co.

This year we are excited to welcome another new artist to our Fall Artisan Market.  SapoVela Soap Co. is owned by Carlo and Mike AND this is their story…


“What goes on your skin matters as much as what goes in your body”

Like many,SapoVela hands we also grew up eating all kinds of conventional foods and using just whatever skin and hair products you see out there with no clue of what’s in them.  What we use on our skin here matters just as much as what we put inside our bodies. That’s why after lots of training and education we developed our own soap, deodorant & toothpaste, so we can use them without any concerns.

Our variety of handmade products have no phthalates, no parabens, no paraffin,no tallow, no any animal ingredients in general, never use palm or palm kernel oil, no aluminum or SLS and no fluoride in our toothpaste.


We craft these things with prepared & researched techniques and a pinch of love which is a powerful ingredient too that needs to go in there to produce a beautiful handmade product!


Today we are a growing small business focused on the making of premium artisan soap, paste deodorants, toothpaste and 100% pure soy candles.  We literally pour our heart in the creation of these recipes developed with natural and organic ingredients – such as; butters, phthalate-free fragrance oils, essential oils, non-GMO xylitol, aluminum-free baking soda…well, you get the idea.


We look forward to seeing everyone on Fall Artisan Market day and sharing our story with everyone!
You can follow us on Instagram (SapoVela Soap Co) and Facebook (SapoVela Soap Co) to keep up-to-date with all our sales and new fragrances.


Thank you!

Featured Artist: Katie Pira “Katie Got a Gun”

Fall Artisan Market is right around the corner.  This year we will be hosting our Annual Market on Thursday, November 12th from 11am to 7pm in our showroom.  It is open to the public, so invite your friends, family and coworkers and join the fun!

This year we have a few new featured artists joining us, one of them being, Katie L. Pira “Katie Got a Gun”

What is Katie Got a Gun?

Looking for accessories with a little more kick?  How about something that distinguishes you from the crowd? Since 2011, Katieturquoise tassel 2 Got a Gun has been creating some seriously one of a kind designs, all made with authentic, previously fired bullet casings.  Katie Got a Gun features some of the most unique boutique jewelry and accessories in Texas.

Her Story

Being a born-and-raised Texas girl, Katie got her first BB gun at seven years old.  Needless to say, she’s a crack shot.  After a round of outdoor target practice in the summer of 2011, Katie was picking up the discarded casings and suddenly realized that she couldn’t simply throw them away.  As she held the casings in her hand, she saw everything they could be and resolved in that moment to give them a second life as something beautiful.  After creating her first pair of earrings, she was hooked.  Since then, Katie has created dozens of beautiful designs that meld the raw power of bullet casings with the casual elegance of pearls, feathers and semi-precious stones.

If You Can Dream It…

While Katie Got a Gun does have a selection of ready-made creations for immediate sale, nothing excites and challenges her more than giving life to your custom vision. Do you have a bullet casing or shell that means something to you?  Maybe you want to commemorate your first hunting trip or honor a family member in the military?  We can help.  And remember, bullet casings aren’t only for hunters and cowgirls! While she offers traditionally rustic looks, Katie is also inspired by southwestern, biker, vintage, glam, steampunk and bohemian aesthetics.  If you can dream it, she can make it a reality.

If you have a certain piece in mind or just want to kick around design ideas, don’t be afraid to contact her and definitely come see her in our showroom on November 12th.
