Hey, What's been goin on?

October has been a very busy month. Not only did we decide to transform the back room into vintage under 20 bucks but we've been putting out new handmade apparel, art, accessories, et cetera, every single day!! We've met & added new local artists to the mix. Plus the post man is bringing us packages at a rapid rate & I unwrap them with fervor. Perhaps it is that we know xmas is right around the corner but we are definitely filling this place up more than ever.
There has also been quite a bit of events in this month of October & the month isn't even over! We've been glad to be a part of every interesting opportunity that has come our way.
Here's a bit of the happenings thus far... We kicked the month off with Scum of the Earth playing an in store show. Followed by a lovely opening party for Fred Edgemon's Collection "A Whole New Thing".
October 13th Carole Crews had a book signing for her new self published book about earthen plasters titled "Clay Culture: Plasters, Paints & Preservation". She left us a few copies which are available on the info shop display. It's an excellent resource for natural builders.
For Create Here's "Models in Masks" fashion event I made 2 ensembles with masks! Here are some pics taken by Robert Parker & Cameron Adams...
