today is our visual display intern julie’s last day…

during her stay, she worked on developing some holiday in-store displays! here’s a sneak peek of what you may see…

and she took the time to write this little note, which i’ll transcribe for you in a sec.

“hi, my name is julie and i have been working with the free people visual team since june. today is my last day and i have had so much fun here! my favorite part of my internship was helping to make prototypes for upcoming displays. also being able to witness how creative and hard-working everyone is has been really exciting. one thing i will take with me is to keep working hard and let others inspire you and that is will impact the quality of your work. thanks for having me, free people family! thanks!”
thank you! be good!!!

Thanks to the poster for blogging this. I randomly came across this while googling my name (something i do every six months or so). My show is moving up to Astoria new york through December at Himalaya Teahouse 33-17 31st Avenue Astoria, New York 718-777-7450 I'm not sure if the poster was aware...but I work a few buildings over as the women's apparel web photographer for Urban. Our dogs probably play together.

amelia merrick's photos of crusties are all awesome. i used to jump the Bethlehen Steel trains behind my parent's house and ride them all over. i wonder if Nikki did too. or from downtown allentown out toward PA dutch country.
