The Octopus and the Fox is a small boutique that sells locally handmade fashion, gifts, art, and more. At the moment, we feature over 60 incredibly talented artists and designers from the Albuquerque area. In addition to the handmade items, we also have a vintage section. Our mission is to promote handmade and sweatshop free items while supporting small businesses within our community. The store is run by four women: Jessi MB Campbell, Belita Orner, Kim Patel, and Loryn Udell. All four of us are artists and have pieces in the store! We love Albuquerque so much, and it is the perfect place for a shop like this. Our design aesthetic is fun, indie, punky, and classic, just to name a few. A lot of it is determined by our artists and designers, and we believe that our store is as eccentric and colorful as they are. We have a studio adjacent in the store in which we work and students can come and learn skills so that they can bring the handmade revolution into their own home!
