Shop Ursula

August 15, 2007

Ursula Arnold is a compulsive flea market shopper. A total addict. Just look at her blog, where most items on it are also for sale (like the chairs shown below). She even tells me that she’s working on moving her brick and mortar store from Tucson, Arizona (currently located in the 22nd street antique mall) over to etsy.

Shop Ursula
There are only 4 items in her etsy shop, but Ursula is busy preparing to add much more, so you’ll want to bookmark her and stay tuned because this lady has a lot of unique finds! And lots of orange, which seems to be one of her favorite colors.

Thanks Ursula for writing in and sharing!

I promised Michelle Smith all week that I’d post this, and with the Rock & Shop Market happening tomorrow down in Raleigh, North Carolina, I figured no time like the day before! Live music, over 35 emerging designers, and lots of southern smiles at this event, going on tomorrow, June 23rd at the Tir Na Nog in downtown Raleigh from 1-5pm. For more information, and to check out all the designers and their websites (great for those of us that cannot attend), click here.

The Dyslexic Press

June 11, 2007

While cruising the South End Open Market yesterday, I spotted some great vendors that I wanted to highlight but I just don’t have the time today, so I selected just two. The first, The Dyslexic Press, does a little remix of familiar brands, signs, and modern icons to create very poppy modern graphics that really stand out in the form of screen-printed shirts, prints, and bags. Learn more about The Dyslexic Press here at the Market Blogger.

The Dyslexic Press
Psst: If you’re down in Brooklyn this weekend, look for their booth at the Renegade Craft Fair.

{I’m sorting through the 50 mood board entries that came in over the weekend, and that are still streaming in today, so I’ll start posting some of them this afternoon. I’ll post about 20 here this week and on Friday, a survey will appear that readers can take to determine the 4 winners. Contest submissions must be in by midnight EST tonight. Thanks to everyone for your entries, this has been a fun contest.}

Jennifer Davis + Gallery 360 (Minneapolis)

May 21, 2007

Jennifer Davis wrote in about a solo show she’s having at Gallery 360 in Minneapolis, Out On a Limb, with an opening reception on Saturday, June 2nd from 7-10pm.

Jennifer Davis + Gallery 360 (Minneapolis)
Her work is so beautiful (oh, the colors!), I couldn’t resist using this as an excuse to share her talent with you. I think Mississippi (below) is my favorite, as I’ve always loved steamboats and paddle wheelers (the southerner in me)  and you don’t usually see these boats in a fresh, modern color palette like this one. Beautiful job, Jennifer!

Jennifer Davis + Gallery 360 (Minneapolis)Jennifer Davis + Gallery 360 (Minneapolis)Jennifer Davis + Gallery 360 (Minneapolis)Jennifer Davis + Gallery 360 (Minneapolis)Her show runs from June 2 – July 22, so if you live in the Minneapolis area, hop on over to Gallery 360, located at 3011 W 50th Street and tell me how gorgeous her work is in person and make me jealous because I can’t be there myself. ;)

Thank you Jennifer for writing in!
