I just heard about Swap-o-Rama-Rama (http://www.swaporamarama.org) which takes place February 12. If I wasn't at work, I'd be there!

It is not explicitly in the mission statement for the store but recycled or repurposed goods are definitely Good Design and as such have a place on the shelves here. Our most popular product, the Lovely Design journals and "little bits", incorporates found and recycled paper ephemera. What was once in the garbage bin is now Art that people can't bear to write on, even though that is the intent of the journal. Funny!

New products: the Matt & Nat is doing well, especially the wallets, I guess it's that time of year? Next week I'll have more I'm Smitten cards and even giclee prints to take home and put on your wall. And a bit of new clothing by OK47 for spring. The spring weather comes and goes but everyone is yearning for it.
