Emily Penrod

It’s that time of year again and we are announcing our five finalists for Calling All Dreamers 2019! We need your help voting on our next downtown Sacramento storefront. Voting is open starting Wednesday, July 17th through Monday, August 19th until 5 p.m. PST online or in-person at select locations.



Are you a cereal fanatic? Look no further than Laterica Reddix’s Cerealism, a hand-crafted cereal bar open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This cereal bar will feature popular brands as well as limited edition and seasonal cereal favorites from all around the globe. Don’t worry, you don’t have to pick just one. There are endless customizable milk and add-in options for each bowl.


Co-Creations House of Art

Do you have an artistic touch? Juna-Rae Sterba has designed a perfectly curated art studio to drive your artistic needs. Sterba features classes in pottery and canvas painting, glass fusion, clay sculpting, and much more. Co-Creations House of Art will make anyone a true artist.


Leash and Collar

Dog lovers, this your time to shine. George and Patty Castillo’s Leash and Collar are selling numerous accessories, bandanas, bow ties, bags, drinkware, and CycleDog’s eco-friendly leashes and collars. Not just a retail store, eventually they plan on working with community “pawtners” to foster dogs for adoption.


Nash & Proper

Warm chicken coated in a fiery batter and shared with their coleslaw and golden buns, Sacramento-born chef and co-owner Cecil L. Rhodes II is evolving the Nash & Proper food trucks into Sacramento’s first brick and mortar restaurant. Inspired by Nashville’s famous flavor, expect a similar cult following for Sacramento’s fiery chicken.


The Spottery

Meagan Lewis is introducing a paint-your-own pottery studio featuring locally made ceramic plans to draw kids, adults and groups to create their own keepsake products. Cheese platters, mugs, plates, dog bowls – you name it, The Spottery’s got you covered. Finished ceramic pieces will be available for purchase in a curated retail section.
