Collaborative District Team

Products, Services, and Ideas that inspire 

With a strong vision, a whole lot of passion, and a pinch of St. Augustine luck, Collaborative District was born.  A place where we could not only showcase our artisan businesses, but also allow us to showcase others as well. We realize the challenges of starting a creative business as well as the importance of small businesses working together to create a supportive artistic community.  Our goal is create a place that offers products, services, and ideas that inspire.  We look forward to you visiting us.

Nick Carrera, owner of Urban Asado & Collaborative District

I originally learned the art of the asado from my Argentine roots. My dad would have these asados filled with laughter, guitar music, stories and of course amazing food that I would never forget.  Once I started my own family I knew I wanted to share this tradition with my family and friends.  Urban Asado® is a modern take on an old tradition of grilling over a wood fire.  My Argentine style grills combine style and function that allow you to create your own asado for 2, or for a gathering of family and friends.  I am proud to share my passion with you and get you on your way to Experience Grilling®. 

Christie Carrera, owner of Silver Sheep Design & Collaborative District

As a child I remember walking into my mom's jewelry studio and always feeling so proud of how talented she was.  She created such beautiful one of a kind pieces of jewelry art.  I always was amazed how something as simple as a bowl of tortilla chips could provide her with so much inspiration.  When I got older she taught me her gift. Together we started creating a very wearable and affordable Basics Line that everyone could enjoy as well as a Whimsical children's line inspired by my beautiful daughter Sofia.  

Now I am proud to bring you Silver Sheep Design. Inspired by my mom, it is a jewelry line that brings you Back 2 Basics, A Bit of Whimsy & one of a kind Signature Designs.
