In the case you are curious here’s a sneak peek at the designs we’ll be screen printing on your tea towels, totes and tee-shirts this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at our Holiday Sample Sale. If you forget to bring something to print on we’ll have American Apparel grey shirts available. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
It’s that time! Our Holiday Sample sale is THIS WEEK in the library at the brand new Schoolhouse Electric Showroom in Portland, Oregon. The shopping space will be a bit smaller than previous sales but on the upside, it’s a lot warmer – there’ll be no need to shop in your down parka and fingerless gloves.
Join us for $1 letterpress cards and screenprinted tees while you wait. Kata Golda will be here as well with her wool felt gifts, ceramics and jewelry. There will be festive snacks and friendly folks. AND, we highly recommend setting aside some time to browse Schoolhouse Electric’s beautiful new offerings.
NOVEMBER 17, 18 and 19th
10am to 6pm
Please note our new location: 2181 NW Nicolai Street Portland, OR 97210
We always leave our hearts in San Francisco when we visit. Last time we were there we left our heart at Gravel and Gold on 21st street in the Mission. They have a fantastic mix of vintage finds, quality basic togs, home goods and accessories. It’s like a mini department store and country general store all in one. The girls at PlainMADE alerted us to this new print by Gravel and Gold last week – quite an amazing coincidence don’t you think? We adore it and would like to get our hands on some of them – come on, get your mind out of the gutter!
What a day! We walked in this morning to the launch of Schoolhouse Electric and Supply Co.’s new website plus a feature about it (along with our collaboration!) on Design Sponge. We’ll be honest, working with Schoolhouse is THE BEST – we have so much fun with their team and it’s very convenient to be in the same building. We are over-the-moon excited to see the products we worked on in the context of the entire line and continue to be amazed at their level of commitment to producing things in the USA. Some of our collaboration favorites are pictured above, and our shopping list of other favorites is below – call it our Christmas wish list if you will...
4 x City wall hook, grey (we already bought 4 yellow)
12 x Kaweco fountain pen (one for each of us in the studio)
Brahms Mount herringbone throw (we can share)
Adam Arnold denim apron (enough to go around)
Schoolhouse canvas organizer (large please!)
...and for the “lounge”...
Mullberry Tripod floor lamp
Beckman Sofa Slipcover - Belvedere Print
...and if Santa really can make miracles happen:
yardage of any Egg Press / Schoolhouse textile print
We’ve had a fantastic year with opportunities to work with great companies on products outside of our scope. It’s so rewarding! As of this week, the calendars and planners we designed with dated goods veterans Blue Sky are on the shelves at Target! We can’t wait to start plotting our vacations and setting appointments for 2012...
