For me, it doesn’t take much to inspire a “treat-yo-self” moment. Stubbed my toe? Cupcake. Bad parking spot? Margarita. FEBRUARY 29th? Shopping!
Come treat yourself to shelves full of beautifully made, unique pick me ups. We have some new items and vendors to share with you this week, and a beautiful new spring themed window display coming on Thursday.

Workshop: iPhoneography: Sunday, March 6th, 2-4pm: If 2016 is your year to learn a new skill, we’ve got the perfect opportunity. Learn how to utilize your iPhone’s camera features to their maximum potential in this iPhoneography workshop with Rana Salame, our product photographer extraordinaire. Students will learn basic photography techniques like composition and lighting as well as how to use effects to enhance images. Participants will edit photos in the VSCO Cam app to make images more creative and visually appealing. Once skills have been covered, the group will hit the streets of Mass Ave to test out newly acquired techniques. A roundtable discussion will follow to study images and next steps to continue snapping like a pro.
Workshop: Dreamcatchers: Saturday, March 19th, 12-2pm: Bewitchingly beautiful with a rich cultural history, dreamcatchers are the ultimate home decor item as well as a powerful protective talisman. First made by the Ojibwe people, dreamcatchers were later adopted by many Native American tribes and are seen as a symbol of unity linking the nations. The folklore says that dreamcatchers ensnare bad dreams and only let the good ones flow through. Students will recieve all supplies for this workshop, but you are welcome to bring in any special stones, knick-knacks, or feathers if you want to personalize your dreamcatcher further. Savannah, the instructor, will also be answering questions about symbolism in dream interpretation.
Fountain Square Music Festival: Saturday, March 26th, 10am-3pm: It’s Girls Rock Family Day at Fountain Square Music Festival, and you’ll find us in the Fountain Square Theater Building vending our handmade goods from 10am – 3pm. Bring the family to this all-ages event with highlights including a coloring station, art, on-stage performances, design-your-own-45-record, musical petting zoo (instruments set up for anyone to use), music robots, DJ performances, face painting, instrument making, and more.
See ya next week, friends!
