Head to Baxter Moerman in January and support the Coalition!

Our neighbors at BAXTER MOERMAN have offered to donate all the proceeds from watch band adjustments and battery replacements to the Coalition during January! No need to bring in a flier or anything, just head down and let these talented local jewelers do the rest.

They are the only shop in town with cases of jewelry they make exclusively in house, heavily inspired by the textures and senses of nature.

BAXTER MOERMAN produces the highest quality wearable art using only recycled 18K golds and conflict free diamonds, because  care about the health of our Earth, its future generations, and the rights of all humans. BAXTER MOERMAN jewelry is a beautiful extension of your personality as well as your conscience, wear it with pride!

-Owners Matthew Baxter and Matthew Moerman

Conrad’s Climbing Bike Lock

Bike security is sometimes a factor which prevents people from riding their bikes for daily trips. But recently, a German model company, Conrad, has built a ‘climbing bike lock’ that can take your bike up and out of reach of potential thieves. Attach it to a standard lamp post, and it will climb up to safety, what a unique idea!

City of Santa Rosa Unveils “Cyclisk” Statue

As a joint project between the City of Santa Rosa and Nissan of Santa Rosa, the Cyclisk is intended to promote bicycles, reuse and community within Santa Rosa. Located on Santa Rosa Ave and South A St, this piece of public art is made of over 340 discarded bicycle frames and parts, and stands 60 feet tall!

The piece was built by Mark Grieve and Ilana Spector, with funds from Nissan, which is building a $3.7 million dealership in the city. Santa Rosa’s “1% for art” law dictates that 1% of major construction projects be devoted to public art.
