The 8 Ball: Alison Carroll of Wonder Valley

Jun 03 2022 Filed in: ApothecaryJaimie FitzgeraldThe 8 Ball

Extra virgin olive oil belongs in your skincare, not only your kitchen. Today we talk with one half of Wonder Valley, Alison Carroll. Alison and her husband Jay decided to start their line of deep orange and yellow golden hued oils after Alison’s time spent at the California Olive Oil Council where she picked up several mentors in the field along the way. The hero ingredient throughout their gorgeous line is their own olive oil.

Alison splits her time between the high & dry Joshua Tree desert and humid sea salt filled Maine. Olive oil is her mainstay of a healthful diet & radiant skin between these two spots. No matter your climate, olive oil is here for you.

The 8 Ball: Laurie-Anne Braun & Margot Baudequin of Fane

Jun 01 2022 Filed in: Jaimie FitzgeraldThe 8 Ball

We’re delighted to chat with the Founders of Fane, Laurie-Anne Braun and Margot Baudequin. Fane is, in their own words: timeless, minimal, and sustainable. The line was born out of frustration when both couldn’t find a bag that they loved. Something was always in the way; a big logo, a visible zipper, a look too trendy, not practical to carry, etc. The two creators sought to create a line of their own with beautiful shapes and colors (maybe lack-there-of actually, with colors like Nuit and Page). We see each Fane bag moving from generation to generation. Made in a small but well equipped atelier in France, they’re the kind of bags that will last forever.

Nov 13 2021 Filed in: ArtJaimie Fitzgerald

“I’m interested in the way light and color blends an interior with an exterior, and how I [can] bring them together to produce a harmonious union of inside and out.”

Gail is currently taking part in an exhibition, Passage, where she is showing work from her diptych series, Passing Through.
