If you are in San Francisco this Sunday, stop by Thee Parkside for Indie Mart and say “hi” to Owen and me. It should be a really good time.

Here are all the details:

Thee Parkside- 17th st & all down Wisconsin
ALL AGES- 21 to booze it up
$2 suggested donation

The Indie Mart is back for our last throw down outside before we move indoors for the winter. We’re bringing you the best in local designers, makers, the most vintage we’ve ever had, local rad stores, zines, rock tees, bakers, and about everything else you can think of. We’ve hand selected 100 of the best bay area vendors just for this event.  Is if that’s not enough…peep our DIY booth from Workshop, featuring demos every hour from 1pm on. Sewing stations where you we’ll customize your rock tees for $5- (choose one of 3 ways- the Tawny Kitean, the Benetar or the Lita Ford..yes, really). We’ve got ping pong going from 1-5pm on the street. Photobooth. Killer BBQ. Drink specials like whoah. and of course, Cheap beers.

JUST GOOD SHOPPING. GOOD FOOD. GOOD MUSIC. GOOD DRINKING. GOOD PEOPLE. GOOD ALL DAY FUN. THE INDIE MART.

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

It seems hard to believe, but the holidays are quickly approaching. Owen and I have been printing and designing like madmen and should have the shop filled with new holiday designs soon.

Joy card

While we do our best to photograph the cards accurately, they actually look much better in person than they do online. If you are in the Bay Area, we will be selling our cards at:

  • Indie Mart at Thee Parkside on Sunday, November 8th
  • RISD Alumni Sale at Ft. Mason on Sunday, December 6th

Hope to see some of you there!

Magnets For Cool Married People

Typically I try to avoid things that use the word “smooching,” but I had to make an exception for these magnets from Button Empire. I felt like they were made just for Owen and me—or maybe we’re not as unique as we’d like to think we are. Either way, I think they are fantastic. For those of you who aren’t married, they are available for boyfriends/girlfriends as well.
