big plans.

listopad sneak peek courtesy of listopad. who else?!
this weekend there are not one but TWO big events in my very own neighborhood: 
saturday is the grand opening of the listopad pop up shop at mercedes bien (2423 18th st NW). a heartfelt congratulations to the heretofore nomadic tribe that is the listopad girls, and to all of us as well for now having a permanent listopad fix! the party is from 12-4; expect lovingly culled vintage, cocktails, snacks, and DJ ris richards.
sunday! 10-5! crafty bastards arts & crafts fair is in its fifth year (and its fourth at the marie reed center). i've been so stoked to see the vendor list start to diversify - CB mainstays like daisy lacy and tina seamonster got this whole thing started (and, in the case of tina seamonster, literally keep it going), but it's a testament to the hard work of the city paper that the show has started to bring in not only the out-of-towners (see: loyalty and blood; elloh) but a whole crop of brand new local talent. i mentioned my friend this chickadee earlier this week; her little line of home goods and totes is, as one friend aptly puts it, "grandma style" in its flawless construction (but not aesthetic! her pieces have a definite vintage vibe, but always with a sense of humor). be on the lookout for her and boothmate dandelion blu among the 150+ craftsters, designers, bands, workshops, ETC on sunday.
and after that - rest up! panda head mag: issue 002 launches first thing monday morning...
