Spotlight on a Sponsor: Out of Print

If you’ve been to one of our shows you know that we often raffle off great items. This upcoming show will prove no different.

We’ve been given some great gear from Out of Print

Here is their mission:

Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. Our products feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art.

We work closely with artists, authors and publishers to license the content that ends up in our collections. Each product is treated to feel soft and worn like a well-read book.

We have a t-shirt, a sweatshirt and a few totes to raffle off. Thanks Out of Print!

Mingling

A post by Co-Creator Lindsay Kavet.

Yesterday I was walking on the shady side of the street in Montrose and happened upon a couple who have a baby, they also started a cool new project called Precious Preemie Project. “Precious Preemie Project donates hand-made knitted hats to premature babies in neonatal intensive care units.

The lovely couple and I were laughing and having a good time learning about each other’s business endeavors. I walked away, once again, loving how different being a business woman/artist/stay at home mom who works sometimes, what the hell am I? I don’t know but I like it.

Then today I drug my two little ones to a Starbucks and plopped them in their double Bob stroller. Only to find it wouldn’t fit through the bathroom door.

I was waiting for the right stranger to leave my kids with so I could run into the bathroom quickly. A woman leaned over and asked my daughter why she had tears in her eyes.

Bingo. “I’m sorry this is nuts but can you watch my kids while I run into the restroom?”

“You got it mama, relax, go.”

When I returned she laughed and said, “You know I’m actually a babysitter,” and she handed me her card.

I asked her if I could share it on my site, she said yes, so here is the kind stranger who helped me today. She works primarily on the East side.

When I stayed in that fancy shmanzy hotel earlier this week, I  watched business men and some women, dressed nicely eating off of some nice breakfast buffet about to have a meeting.

Part of me wants that. But the bigger part of me loves having impromptu meetings with fellow moms/artist with stains on my shirt, my hair in a bun and quickly bursting with ideas/exchanges before my child or theirs needs attention.
