Since my husband and I are both interior designers by day we have been lucky enough to go to Neocon (the largest design conference in North America) three times. Every time one of us gets sent by our office the other will tag along because we absolutely love Chicago. The architecture is outstanding, the people are friendly, and the food is excellent. We basically eat our way through city while staring at the buildings and taking way too many photos of buildings.
Over the years we have discovered some great neighborhoods like Wicker Park and Bucktown. We hooked up with some of our dear friends from Portland and from college and ate at an amazing Bar B Q place in Wicker Park called Lillie’s Q.
This year we found the Ukranian Village and Sheffield neighborhoods. The Ukranian village is also where I met with the owner of a lovely shop called Komoda. It has a wide range of items for everyone you could ever need to shop for. And I am very excited to say that they also carry Frawn (yayyyy!!!). We are finally in the midwest!
Below you will find some photos from their shop and a link to their website. Please check them out!
This is a little taste of the neighborhood….

The highly anticipated, always surprising, never boring Fremont Fair is quickly approaching! The event is June 20-22nd. The are tons of great vendors and my favorite, the doggie parade is at 2pm on Sunday. Concerts will be taking place both days and Friday night. And of course the solstice parade is always the highlight on Saturday at 3pm. You can find out more about the event here.
Pleas stop by our booth and pick up some unique belated gifts for the fathers day and for yourself. We have a fantastic range of tie Seattle inspired tie clips, cuff links, and belt buckles. We also have some fantastic women’s jewelry with the Seahawks colors (of course, as a homegrown Seattle girl I just had to) as well as some additional fun summer colors…
And of course we will have the usual geometrics and new tribals….
Our booth will be located near the corner of Phinney Ave and 34th street:

If you are planning a wedding and looking for some accessories for the groomsmen and bridesmaids this is a great time to see what I can do and place an order. The custom possibilities are endless! We can make tie clips and cuff links with initials, logos or images and we can engrave the back of necklaces with a special quote or date. I absolutely LOVE making custom items for people, so please stop by and check out our offering.

We also had a wonderful day at the Presents of Mind trunk show last Saturday! A huge thanks to the wonderful folks at POM, it was so much fun hanging with you and checking out the cute assortment of summer dresses! And a special thanks to everyone who stopped by and especially my dear friend Krissy for modeling my earrings and taking such cute photos…
