Each week I am so impressed with all the wonderful photos that you are sending in! Thank you so so much. Next week's theme is: "Celebration". Email your photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by next Thursday at 1pm PDT and we'll add it to the collection. Have a great week!
Hey Friends! We hope you can join us this weekend for a wee bit of fun. And when we say "wee" we mean it. Artist Lea Redmond will be transforming a tiny part of the Shoppe into the World's Smallest Postal Service. Come visit us between 2 and 6pm this Saturday and Lea will transcribe a letter for you into a very miniature version, which gets sealed (with wax!) in a very small envelope. The eensy-weensy letter then gets packaged along with a magnifying glass and sent off to the recipient. So much fun! Hope to see you (and your letters) there!
Yesterday as Aurora and I were busy packing up web orders in the shoppe, we peeked out the window and noticed that someone had set up a little photo studio out front and was taking portraits of people on the street. Turns out that they were from a local arts organization called Curbs and Stoops, and they were working on a project called "Mission Portraits". We were convinced to get our pictures taken after they took our friend Nate and our UPS guy Damian's photos. Since they are our two favorite mustachioed buddies, we grabbed a couple wooden mustaches from the shoppe and joined in the club.
Click here to see the rest of the portraits - a good example of the types of folks who pass by our shoppe on a typical day in the Mission. You can read more about the project on the Curbs and Stoops blog.
Hello! Thanks for all your lovely "up" photos! We got images from 2 Caroline's this week, and so thank you Caroline and Caroline who are indeed two different people (and both happen to be fantastic photographers)!
Next week's photo assignment is "down". (You saw that coming, didn't you?) If you'd like to participate, all you have to do is email us your image by 1pm PST next Thursday. Our email address is: email@example.com.
