It’s Retro, Baby

Last year I told you all about my excitement for an event planned at Orchard Art House.

The night ended up exceeding my expectations (and of course I did a little shopping – check out the belt I purchased from Circa Vintage!).

I had so much fun the last time around that I decided to join in, and at this year’s Retro Benefit I’ll be selling Wild Ruffle jewelry, with this girl hanging out at my table too. Also coming along for the ride are Ashley Barlow, Circa Vintage, Snowy Owl Baby, Marcia Siggelkow’s vintage-themed children’s items (see picture below), and more.

Wanna know the best part? Aside from the beautiful setting – the amazing lofted studio of ekate designs set against a lakeside backdrop – the best part is that the entire evening benefits Urban Homeworks, an organization dedicated to rebuilding neighborhoods in disadvantaged areas of the Twin Cities.

Wanna know where to buy a ticket? Simply head here – tickets are $10 in advance, and $12 at the door.

Wanna know when to be there? Head to the Orchard Art House (22490 Murray St. Excelsior, MN 55331) on Saturday, August 25th any time between 2-7 pm. Can’t wait to see you there!

Here’s the thing.  I pride myself in being able… [Continue Reading]

When you’re out and about all day, (or busy opening a retail shop!!!) there’s no time to change. My solution is the t-shirt dress and… [Continue Reading]

  • Bobbi Jo Fischer says that the best part of her job is seeing “afters.” And she must see a lot of good ones, because she is an independent rep for Nerium, creator of the amazing Night Cream (Nerium AD). Bobbi Jo offered Tammy and I the opportunity to try this incredible product for a month.… [Continue Reading]
