CityStage HOLIDAY SHOWCASE THIS SATURDAY

CityStage Holiday Shoecase at Leanna Lin's Wonderland

Come out and support the arts while you do some holiday shopping this Saturday!

Leanna Lin’s Wonderland in Eagle Rock, CA is hosting an awesome fundraiser for CityStage!  I will be manning the gift wrapping station next to my pop up shop and will also have sweet treats for you to munch on at the bake sale.  I am really looking forward to helping to raise money for such a great cause!

RSVP on the Facebook event page right here.

CityStage strives to inspire inner-city youth to become artists, leaders and members of the performing arts community in a program that cultivates individuality, fitness, and artistic expression. Their goal is to use the performing arts as a method to develop leadership, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity to ensure successful futures for our inner-city youth.

Support the arts while you shop!
Hope to see you there!

PS: Don’t forget to follow CityStage’s instagram account, @lacitystage to see what the kids are doing in the programs.

A LITTLE KNOWN SHOP CRAFT FAIR RECAP

It was so much fun to be a part of A Little Known Shop‘s Summer Series 90s Nostalgia Art Gallery and Craft Fair (especially with 90s music playing all night)!  I finally got to meet the awesome ladies behind ALKS as well as make new friends with the fellow vendors.  Here are some photos from the event– the next event is a Dia de los Muertos Festival on November 1st!  Get all the details here. Thanks to everyone who stopped by! :)

A great day to visit Community in Anaheim!

{Community is where A Little Known Shop, The Makery, and several other adorable shops and these fun events are located!}

Pallet display!

{If you know me at all, you know I LOVE pallets and want to take them off the side of the street to make amazing furniture with lol.  I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to them!  I was in love with Jennifer’s pallet display– I love the color of the wood and it’s a great way to get your display to go vertical!}

Succulents + announcements

{I loved this little grouping of succulents and postcards on this pretty wood table.  Here’s more info on the Dia de los Muertos Festival shown in the pic)

Cards For A Cause Trunk Show at Share & Do Good!

I am very excited for the Cards For A Cause Trunk Show, hosted by our wonderful friend Lilly over at Share & Do Good Boutique in Fullerton, CA!  Come say hello, have a bite and drink, and get some cards for Valentine’s Day or sign up for a card delivery!

Here are the details:

Date & Time: this upcoming Saturday, Feb. 2nd from 10AM to 2PM
(The flier says 2012 but I really mean 2013!  Sorry, it’s just habit!)
Where: Share & Do Good Boutique, 115 South Harbor Blvd. Suite F, Fullerton, CA 92832
Located inside the Carpe Diem Experience complex
Parking: There is free parking at the lot off of Harbor and Santa Ana, as well as free street parking in the area

When you are driving down Harbor, look for this sign!

I LOVE the concept behind Share & Do Good: every single item in the boutique is not only unique and beautiful, but it also supports many great causes from around the world.  When you purchase an item, you are also helping to build wells in India, fight hunger, find a cure for cancer, assist survivors of sex trafficking to rebuild their lives, provide relief both locally and internationally– if that is not a reason to shop I don’t know what it is!

It’s also a one stop shop for gifts– from watches to jewelry to toys to accessories and more– there is something for the man, woman, or child in your life.  Check out some of Share and Do Good’s partners and their mission and products here and make sure to connect with them on facebook!

I am so thankful for Lilly’s generosity, support, and enthusiasm for Cards For A Cause!  We can’t wait to see you Saturday!

We’re Having A Trunk Show!

Our wonderful friends at Share and Do Good are hosting our first trunk show!  Please mark your calendars and join us for some Valentine’s Day goodies, drinks, and shopping– all for a great cause!  Our Valentine’s Day cards will be available for you to buy and give to your loved one yourself or you can sign up for a card delivery!

Here are the details:

When:  Saturday, February 2nd, 2013
Time: 10AM to 2PM
Where:  Share and Do Good, 115 South Harbor Blvd.  Suite F, Fullerton CA  (It is located inside the Carpe Diem Experience complex)

And here is the flier:

This is what the Share and Do Good’s store front looks like so you can find us:

Please help to spread the word and hope to see you there!

Also check out our host, Share and Do Good’s facebook page and website.  A portion of proceeds from every item in the boutique benefits various non-profits and causes from around the world!  Lilly, the owner, curates the shop beautifully and there are items for women, men, and children.  From jewelry to journals to fragrances to tees to toys and so much more, I am sure you will find the perfect gift for whoever is on your list (or for yourself :) )
