I am currently co-owner of a boutique in San Antonio, Texas. We do really well with your clothes- among me being one of your biggest fans. As of January, I will be opening my own boutique- all legalities are in order. I know Rick has helped show the line in Texas. j This is the store I currently co-own. As of this Friday- our partnership will only last until the end of December. I will then be owner of my boutique and I need merchandise from Free People- spring 2010 onward..... Is there a sales rep that can come show me the line. I know it by heart..... and I know my customers love your clothing and then some. If there is anyway possible for someone to contact me-via e mail, that would be a wonderful way to start a new year. Happy Holidays! Jody

Post image for firefly literacy fund

some friends of mine are involved in a nonprofit organization called the firefly literacy fund that I think is really cool…it’s all about bridging the opportunity gap in the city of philadelphia by working with families, teachers, schools and shelters.  they have donated hundreds of books to elementary school students and this past october they worked really hard on turning the library at the southwark elementary school into a relaxing and inviting space where kids would want to spend time…and they did a great job, as you can see in the above images. they’re having an event this wednesday to raise money and awareness for this important cause…click here for details, and check out their website fireflyfund.org!

are any of you involved in good causes? what charities are you most passionate about?

patch nyc is a collaboration of two talented artists and designers – don carney and jon ross.  we here at fp instantly fell in love with their one-of-a-kind pieces and are excited to feature them as one of our favorite designers!  the patch nyc collection is vintage inspired, but also maintains a strong contemporary look.  to create their latest collection they experimented with a variety of metal finishing techniques to obtain a weathered quality that adds to their jewelry’s character by giving it a rough edge.  the collection features a collage of vintage pieces mixed with newer findings, using charms, stones and beads to create something special that is both modern and old, and undeniably unique.

check out the jewelry by patch on our website!

i stayed in philly for some time, and i fell in love with the city, primarily fishtown and kensington. there's an amazing ministry on poplar street, called trevor's place, where some of the most wonderful children i have ever met live. if you've never been, i suggest your staff get involved there, these children will tug on your heartstrings and change your life.

Not listed on the Holiday Walk (but participating), is the grand opening of the new Part Time Studios! Be sure to check out their open house and gallery. It's north of Rocket Cat on Frankford. http://parttimestudios.com/

**those of you wondering who designed the dress…monique lhuillier!
