for our online holiday boutique we did a really cute photo shoot featuring fp girls who work here at the home office and some of their favorite holiday gifts – here’s a look behind the scenes at the photo shoot, which also features our resident ladies man here at the office, fritz :)

the song is “coldest night of the year” by vashti bunyan.

Your work is awesome. I liked it, its interesting and appreciable. You have got a good talent in yourself. Keep it up. Great job. Even i have interest in this type but lack of time with my schedule doesn't really allows me to do it, But you should never stop your self to do where you are interested.

building 25

we’re going to be moving into a new building down at the navy yard next year, and the other day i decided to walk over and check it out. as you can see, construction is underway, so i wasn’t allowed in without a hardhat…

you can kinda tell from the picture above…our buildings are right on the delaware river, which is awesome. i like the water.

soundsuits

i first heard about the artist nick cave when i saw a post about him on our brooklyn we the free store’s blog. then a reader on our blog suggested checking him out and i couldn’t put off posting about him anymore. cave is a chicago based artist who is also a trained dancer and former clothing designer…all of which is evident in the creations he makes, called “soundsuits”, because of the noise they make when moved around in. he uses a variety of found materials to create the soundsuits, which can stand on their own as artwork or be worn by dancers as performance art. here are some of them…they’re pretty wild…

i wasn’t able to find a website for nick cave, but you can find more info about him on the website for the jack shainman gallery in new York, where he has recently shown his work.
