i’m back in oakland after a wonderful 10 day trip to chicago and new york! HOLY SHIT you guys, i am so excited to report back that both BIG BIG CITY events went so smoothly and successfully…i almost can’t believe it’s all over. chicago came out in full force on a frigid tuesday night for our pop-up art market at public works! it was so fun to hang out with all our vendors, get people more familiar with 826chi, to see my old-school chicago friends, and to chat and meet all the new friends who were so excited about what we’re doing.
i couldn’t have even gotten close to planning this all without the help of the amazing debbie carlos, so a round of applause for all of her hard work! also big thanks to my brother, aaron, for lugging all the tables up the stairs, letting me borrow his car, & running the raffle. shout out to dorothy for charmingly manning the bar! and of course, love to my mother for helping organize and schlep and generally just be there to support me. you guys rule.
here are some photos from the night, check facebook for the rest! can’t wait to come back for more in the chi….
