Serious about buying local? Enter Make Good. The store currently houses about 130 local artisans’ works — 90 percent San Diegans, 10% percent from Baja — all of whom have a personal, working relationship with proprietor Sophia Hall. Pick up anything in the store and she’ll tell you the who, where, and how. The 35 jewelry artists produce trinkets like rings made from coins or glass bottles, pocket-watch necklaces, bicycle-part jewelry, and rose pins constructed from paperback books. You’ll also find hand-painted henna frames, knitted goods, coasters and notebooks crafted from vinyl records, and an entire corner devoted to kids’ items.
