meet your maker

i love this idea…every sunday from 11am-6pm a one-of-a-kind diy market takes place at the old american can factory in brooklyn. each sunday a different “maker” creates their product live, giving visitors the chance to see how it is made. the makers specialize in a variety of crafts including jewelry, clothing, food and home décor. I definitely want to go one weekend – if any of you are attending, let us know!

Loveee this! Wish I could go :( Whats going on for the We The Free Designer search for New York & Cali. Any cool new designers!?

That's fantastic. If you are very much engrossed with vintage stuff, you can find some there. I think that's the fun part!

That zip up is a great touch. And the lines give it a more interesting shape than the others.

copy – desert

luren, who used to work for our store display team, is curating a show at copy gallery
it’s called desert. and it will probably leave you thirsty for more…
sorry, that sounds silly.
if you’re in philly, make it part of your first friday festivities. there, that’s better…
artists from philadelphia and los angeles are creating sculptures inspired by plants and structures of the desert using commonly found materials.

copy gallery, 319 n 11th st. 3rd floor. 6-11pm.

forgive me…this poll was created a few days early (b/c of my road trip) so i don’t have the results for last week’s poll…but, if you’re curious, you can look at edition 61 and find out what tight/sock was your favorite.
this week, we wanted to know what you thought about these shirt/dress/skirts! we love convertibility and versatility these days; hoping you do, as well. but which do you like the best?
the graphic cutout ponte dress

the color block tank dress

the flirty organza dress

or, the two timing mini dress…

you’ll find painters, sculptors, photographers, clothing and jewelry designers, milliners, handbag designers, house wares, florists, bakers, local farmer’s produce and much more every week!
540 harrison ave. boston, ma

where does the time go? honestly…
last week we asked you which we the free cover-up you liked best; of the 496 that responded, 237 of you – nearly half of you – liked the wtf silk blazer. :)
i liked that one, too.
onto this week. now that fall is slowly approaching, and we’ve got to think about keeping warm and looking rad, what tights/socks do you like the best? and if you have an opinion as to why, please write and share your thoughts with us! we’d love to know…
let’s start with the double-dye tight

the backseam sheer hose

and then our socks, starting with the mosaic cable over-the-knee

and then the mesh stripe legwarmer, which is more like a footless sock, but…

vote! vote! vote! vote!

AND!!! to boot (no pun intended), we’re offering a special on these items right now…buy 1, get 1 free!!!!!

DChamberlain -Sep 24, 2009, 8:11PM
mesh stripe legwarmers would be soo versatile because they could work as armwarmers or legwarmers, with boots or heels, with jeans or skirt. I really love these........Boo
Leanna Doll -Sep 24, 2009, 7:22PM
The double-dye tights all the way! So versatile and chic! Wanttt :P

from dez at our we the free store in hollywood:
folk fans will unite as amoeba music presents a special screening of “leonard cohen: live at the isle of wight festival 1970″. the concert film captures the iconic cohen at his commercial peak in 1970 as he performs his bittersweet ballads to a packed crowd of starry-eyed hippies and fans at the isle of wight festival–a coachella of the 70′s, if you will…the dvd won’t be released until next month, and this screening is free and open to the public.
pop in and say howdy to the we the free girls while you’re there!
