ps: my bad, when I say 300, 200 or 150, I mean pixels ! :)
Liis -Jun 27, 2011, 6:09PM
click on the image and you'll be redirect to Flick's page. There, you can visualize all the sizes avaiable to download. It's better if you download the biggest size :) After that, when you'll have already the file on your PC, I believe the best way to find the size with good resolution for print, it's open the file on Photoshop. It's not the easiest way but it never fails! Once you have the file opened on Photoshop, you can fit it on a document with 210x297mm (A4 size) and the best resolution is 300. When you print an image, a 200 or 150 it's also good, but if you put 300, I'm sure it's gonna be AWESOME. Hope it works to all who have these doubts =) ! xoxo, Liis K.

Post image for summer swing giveaway!!!

summer is right around the corner and to celebrate, we have a giveaway that you will want to use every day until the cold creeps back in – our display team has donated one of the incredible swings from our new summer install and one lucky reader will get to call it their own!

these swings are completely sturdy and usable, with wooden slats as a base and colorful netting to cover it with. as with many of our displays, our team drew inspiration from india, where our senior store designer spends half of each year. the netting, trimmed with beads, pompoms and tassels, is the same kind that is draped over the backs of camels in india.  the rope used to hang the chair is also the same kind as camel reins in india, and consists of colorful string carefully wrapped around thick rope. we used similar pieces on the camel in our august 2010 catalog shoot and the same netting was used on the horse in our march catalog shoot!

i can just imagine this swing on the front porch of a house or hanging from the limbs of a tree in the backyard of one of our devoted readers… dreaming the summer days away, reading, listening to music and swinging gently in the summer air.

and not only are you getting one of the coolest store display pieces EVER, you also get something that is quite symbolic of the free people aesthetic. this swing is truly special!

Post image for Brimfield Photo Diary

Some of our buyers have just come back from Brimfield’s one of the world’s largest flea markets. It’s in Massachusetts and happens 3 times a year May 8-13, July 10-15, and September 4-9.

Here are some pictures they took and wanted to share with you!

It’s unbelievable the amount of great things you can find there with so much history and stories behind them.

Have any of you guys been?

Hi all, Images like this and the people who stand behind them are alive and well. We need to acknowledge this image. We must be appalled that it ever existed, then we need to get fucking angry and do something about it.
Jen -May 28, 2011, 6:27PM
"Anonymous" - have you ever even looked through FP's website and catalogues? How can you even say that they only use white people? Why does everyone have to be soooo offended about everything? Damn.

Your store is just amazing. I was wondering where you got those coffee tables. They are amazing. I could just live in the store it's so nice and the crew is super sweet. Will for sure spend a lot of time there.
Monie -Mar 25, 2011, 1:37AM
Thanks for opening one in SJ!!!! =] I <3 FP! I was sad that I couldn't attend the grand opening last week, but I had a chance to check it out this evening. Everything was perfect like always when I step into the boutique. It's like walking into a craft/art festival. I love the brick flooring right in front of the store. =)

i love mood boards…especially when they incorporate objects and fabrics in addition to just images. i think its why i’m always so drawn to my coworkers’ desk spaces, as they’re each like a little personal mood board. here are some that i’ve collected from around the web.

I wish I could go there! Alas Corte Madera is 1 hour 50 minutes away from where I live. I actually did visit Corte Madera a couple times early last year, sadly FP wasn't around then. I'm so bummed. Jealous of CM and the Bay Area getting these stores, hopefully in the distant future Roseville/Sacramento can get a FP store, too. T_T The CM store is simply gorgeous. Enough said.

Post image for spring display giveaway!

*UPDATE 3/14 – congrats to our winner, fariza from california!*

i love everything about our spring store displays, but my favorite part are the amazing fabric covered suitcases.  so i was very excited that our display team brought this beauty over to me for us to give away on the blog! can you imagine waiting for your luggage at baggage claim and seeing one of these come around on the conveyor belt?! talk about one of a kind!

underneath the fabric is a durable plastic suitcase, so these can be used although i’d recommend being gentle with it, due to the delicate nature of the hand-sewn fabric and embellishments.

to enter the giveaway, click here and fill out the simple form.  we will leave it open for a week and i’ll pick a winner at random on monday. good luck!

Cindy Carr -Mar 20, 2011, 2:51PM
It is wonderful. Hope to win this and thanks for the chance.
Sherry -Mar 20, 2011, 7:21AM
My closet's filled with FP ouldn't it be lovely to have this magnificent suitcase to put them in?
