July 15: NW’s Largest Garage Sale

summersale

I will be vending at this year’s NW’s Largest Garage sale at the Clark County Event Center in Ridgefield, Washington, about 20m North of Portland.

Directions to the Event Center are on their website here.

NW’s G sales happen periodically throughout the year, but this event will be on ONE day only, July 15th, from 8am-4pm. EARLY BIRD hour will be from 7-8am for you morning people… Which I’m not! If you happen to make it out that early, I might even be motivated to offer a discount… Make me an offer 🙂

I will have a variety of vintage & collectible clothing on offer at this sale, including belly dance/festival costumery, gothic, 80’s punk, ska/rockabilly, and a few designer items (Dansko clogs are very comfy!)

In addition, I will have original art and craft pieces, as well as your more traditional “garage sale” items, vintage cassette/VHS tapes, fiction and academic/text books, possibly some art and craft supplies, vintage jewelry, etc.

I hope to be able to utilize Square for the first time at this booth! So swipe cards, cash and checks should work fine. I can also do pay by email.

Hope to see you out this coming Saturday!

 

 

 


My New Storefront

Hey Guys (of whatever gendered persuasion!)… Guess What! I have a new storefront on Storenvy under Laughingnewborn. It’s kind of like Etsy, with a focus on independent artists & designers whose brands tell a compelling story. I’d like to think mine does 🙂
It functions kind of like a social media site, in that you can “collect” items/brands you like and share them with others.

So, go “Envy” my store, if you would plz, thanks!!!

Go to my Contacts page, Here

and it should pop right up.
Or, you can visit:

http://laughingnewborn.storenvy.com

It is still brand new, so make sure to check back regularly, both here and on the storefront, to see what new developments are taking place. Please contact me if you notice any bugs that need fixing.

Yays! – SBA


Wacky Jacket Update

I’ve been making some progress on the jacket, pictured earlier in 2013. It has thus far told me it needed to have bead embroidered tipped collars, and a scattering of rhinestones to add some sparkle and pizzaz to the potential of the fun random patterning. Also: the pattern reminds me of staring into the firey depths of hot coals, out of which has emerged the idea for translating a traditional rising phoenix design into my layered felt technique. More to come…
