Lake Tahoe is a major tourist attraction connecting Nevada and California. It is home to winter sports, summer outdoor recreation, and scenery enjoyed throughout the year. Snow and ski resorts are a significant part of the area's economy and reputation.
Lake Tahoe does not get its iconic blue tint because the water is so clear. Instead, the lake's blueness comes from the amount of algae in the water, a fact researchers were surprised to discover when they first set out to quantify just how blue Lake Tahoe is.
In November, we decided to feature Lake Tahoe as it is a childhood vacation location and has a very special place in our hearts. Our vendors included some from the Lake Tahoe area itself and others that share our love of this tranquil place.

"The story is, I work really hard on many different things, and I love all of it. I wish I had 12 extra hours each day to do more of it. Beads. Mandalas. Rocks. Resin. Paint. Patterns. Nature. Color.
Everyone needs the Tahoe Mandala sticker! It's great on your car, your water bottles, your boards, helmets, skis, bike baskets, computers, etc. Put it wherever you want (unless you're vandalizing...don't do that.) The sticker is a reproduction of my original artwork - which is a hand-painted mandala on a 20-inch canvas that took about 80 hours of painting time."

"We still live in beautiful Sonoma County and to this day our favorite family memories still involve two things– a lake and a boat. These child-hood memories we share and the new ones we create as a family inspired us to start Lakebound Candle Co. An evening cruise along the glassy water, sitting around a campfire with family and friends, cocktails on the dock... Our most treasured moments are tied to emotions that our sense of smell can help invoke. We hope our candles help to ignite a once forgotten memory while inspiring you to create new ones." - Lakebound Candle Co.
