littlefour, a new shop and design store, Opens at The Barlow

littlefour is a new, smartly curated shop and design studio now open at The Barlow in downtown Sebastopol at 120Morris Street, at the corner of Morris and McKinley. We provide a well-curated selection of unique handcrafted housewares, clothing, accessories, jewelry, paper goods,
gifts, men’s goods, and fun things for children. In our shop, you will find local and independent artists and makers from the Bay Area and beyond, including in-house label littlefour by designer and owner Danielle Rodrigues.

She creates a fun and inspired shopping and community experience that connects our customers to the
artists and designers we carry. littlefour will be hosting monthly events such as workshops, movie nights,
trunk shows, and special gatherings. At littlefour, we want every purchase to have purpose. The items in our store are more than just products.

Every piece in the store has its own story and has been chosen because it is handcrafted, ethically-made,
well-designed, and beautiful. We are here to help tell the story of our artists. Who made it, how it was
made, and where it came from.

littlefour will have a Grand Opening throughout the day on Small Business Saturday, November 28th,
2015. We will have food, drinks, and discounts to celebrate our opening. This will coincide with the First
Annual Barlow Holiday Open House by many participating Barlow businesses on that same day.

In the back of the shop, you will find the design studio for my in-house label, littlefour, a handmade
clothing line for women and children. For ten years, I have designed and sewn every piece. It truly is a
one woman show!

Danielle Rodrigues is a Bay Area artist and designer, creating my women and children’s clothing line, littlefour, for over ten years. Trained at Apparel Arts in San Francisco, her designs have been featured in prominent nationa lmagazines, design and clothing blogs, and in stores across the US, UK, and Australia. She had a small store in downtown Vallejo, California called littlefour&friends. Her newest project is a brand new store and design studio now open at The Barlow in downtown Sebastopol, California. It’s simply called littlefour.

Danielle says, “As an independent artist and new store owner, I believe that the artists and makers
featured in our store can bring creativity to the community, support the local economy, and provide
meaningful and beautiful stories to the homes and lives of our customers. All my littlefour designs are
created and made at my in-store studio, and everything in the shop is handmade by independent designersand friends near and far. It’s so exciting to be open at The Barlow among so many other inspiring,women-owned businesses. For me, I’m just doing what I can, one stitch at a time, to support myself, myartist friends, and Sebastopol by opening my fresh, new handmade goods and studio at The Barlow. Join us for our Grand Opening on Small Business Saturday, November 28th, and if you’re lucky, you can meet littlefour’s mascot, my French Bulldog, Nolie!”
