Mignonne is a committed member of Oakland's local merchant community. We support sustainable commerce through our extensive collection of vintage tableware and decor (reuse) and refurbished vintage furniture pieces (recycle/reuse) created through the vision and artistry of co-owner, Johnelle Mancha.
We are excited to bring you one of our popular customer receptions that capitalizes on these two concepts. We have teamed up with 2 Twigs ( Alameda ) a sustainable florist who sources local yards to create incredible bouquets, and with Gina Pericini of Flock, a local designer who creates handmade silk-screened kitchen towels, cocktail napkins, and pillows to bring you a "Green Potluck Event" in our store on Saturday, September 6th.
The Green Potluck Event will focus on the sustainability of selecting and re-using vintage house/kitchen ware and buying locally. During the Green Potluck Event you will be able to see Mignonne’s large assortment of vintage/antique dishware in use while you nibble on small selections from Oakland's local and sustainable restaurants and bakeries from Old Oakland, West Oakland, Temescal and Uptown.
2 Twigs will be designing centerpieces to inspire your imagination as you plan for your next party, entertaining guests or general decorating projects. We will also feature Flock's arrangement of entertainment accessories.
We'll be providing more updates between now and the 6th. Mark your calendars and plan to join us in preparation for the upcoming fall and winter entertaining season. As summer winds down and we move indoors, we begin to think of refreshing our décor and designs. Mignonne is here to provide you affordable options to update your home for the new seasons.
