this is such an awesome idea – one of our designers is heading to the sled island music and film festival in calgary, which takes place june 30 – july 3. to prepare for her trip she is compiling all sorts of information in a little composition book that she brought over to show us the other day - it’s amazing! she cut out and pasted images and hand wrote information about the festival lineup, bars, restaurants and shopping in calgary – even interviews with calgary designers that she has printed out!
i think it’s such a creative way to prepare for and then document a trip – in fact it has inspired us to do something similar for bonnaroo :) we’ll take a closer look at the contents of her journal when the festival approaches, but for now i wanted to share the idea because i thought it was so cool. and all you need is a journal, scissors and glue sticks!
did any of you attend marit larsen’s performance at our brooklyn store on friday? from what i hear it was a great event, and our music coordinator sent along these awesome photos!
the storefront and the cute little backyard, decorated to the nines!

the above photo is my favorite.

the winner of last week’s hat poll was – by almost 50%! – the medina sun hat :)
our new summer store displays are up and i am in awe!
for the garlands, our visual team drew inspiration from holiday decorations they saw in india:
here are some pics of the displays going up in our king of prussia, pa store!
the plexi art was done by hand by our display team members…stay tuned because we have a video of that for you!
the bikes are by far my favorite…they were designed by one of our visual display team members while she was in india.
aren’t they beautiful? i want one to ride around at the beach this summer!
