Resonating Earth

Shortly after graduating from Parsons School of Design in Manhattan, Marguerite spent a year in New Zealand exploring and realizing her true purpose and passion was for the Earth. A certified herbalist, reiki master, dowser, and earth educator, she manages to still find time to lead private herbal tea experiences.  Having completed courses in both herbal medicine and geomancy, she infuses her work with an attuned understanding of the energetic properties of plants and the Earth. With a relentless lifetime commitment to benefit both the planet and all of its inhabitants, we are thrilled to welcome her on as one of our small business collaborators!

Blew Candle Co

Nikki Mehr is the gal behind Blew Candle Co, a one-woman business operated out of Redondo Beach. All of her small batch candles are hand poured and made with 100% soy wax. For this reason each candle allows for a toxin-free burn, making it safe for pets, infants, and those who suffer from allergies.  Eco-friendly wicks and carefully chosen fragrances provide for the cleanest and longest burn time possible.
 Sparking nostalgia and memories with her carefully selected scents, we are thrilled to host her on our web market and partner with Nikki in the many pop up shops to come!



Malibu Honey

(photo by Mette Lampcov)

Founded by Bruce and Mette Lampcov in 2011, this power couple's honey is exactly what the jar says it is: Raw. Honest and perfect in its simplicity, Malibu honey is the product of a few humble bees just a stones throw away in the Santa Monica and San Gabriel mountains. Non-filtered and non-pasteurized for it's health benefits, this amber nectar easily becomes a staple in any mother's kitchen. With sweet nuances of Southern California wildflowers, we thought it only befitting of this mighty labor of love to donate 10% of the proceeds from its sales to the Ojai Meadows Preserve.

Rose + Rye

A baking force to be reckoned with, all of rose + rye goods are made from organic flour from central milling co, and freshly milled grain from Tehachapi Grain project. Flavored with stone milled matcha of Mizuba Tea Co, and organic chocolate from TCHO, each of their pastries as absolutely drool worthy. We at novella are SERIOUSLY excited to feature their deliciously femm persian halva in one of our small batch mothers day gift bundles !

Kelsey Brito

Pastry Chef and director of bakery operations at Milo and Olive, Brito is the mastermind behind much of Rustic Canyon restaurant groups baked goods. Ranging from delicate seasonal tarts to the ever humble country loaf, her talents in all things gluten seem to know no bounds! Born of necessity and her eagerness to provide refuge to many a female artisan during the pandemic, Kelsey put her chef mind into action and teamed up with California locals to form semi regular holiday pop up markets at Milo and Olive headquarters. There, many Angelinos were able to find normalcy in getting back to their shopping routines, granted from 6 feet away. Now that the world is "normalizing" Kelsey continues to share the quaint space that Milo has to offer and her endless support for their patrons, and female and BIPOC partnered businesses. We are so proud to know, love, and feature this true talent in our Milo and Olive collaborative mother's day gift baskets for this upcoming pop up.
