First thing to start of the long weekend- VANS Shoes BOOK debut! The party was huge. Bands, pro skaters, FOOD galore, BMX tricks, art show and more. The history of VANS detailed in their new book (super rad covered in checkered canvas with a rubber sole stamp)
The voting is still going on for the logo contest so if you can pass on the word...VOTE here for mine
Lucky for me these guys were guarding my art piece, I wouldn't want anyone to damage it
Future heart breaker skater boys. You should've seen these kids in the ramp doing tricks. Either they have no fear of heights, or no fear of death.
this guy has the largest collection of VANS shoes and the last chapter of the book is dedicated to photos of it.
TMZ in the house!
models rocking the new looks
hot stuff = nikki +TAYLOR
This was followed by a FRIDAY night art auction for my pal Justin Van Hoy.
Justin is a super amazing guy (used to work for SWINDLE)- who recently had to deal with a cancer relapse. He is home now and doing better thanks to a bone marrow donor. The folks at POKETO arranged an art auction to raise some money to help buffer the costs of hospital care and help Justin and his wife.
Lots of incredible artists donated work for the event, and they were able to raise $11,000!!!

On Saturday the folks at CHANGO held a neighborhood art show downstairs. The show features a bunch of coffee regulars and people who live in the area/building. the first 4 of these pics were taken by taylor brittenham

This coming sunday- I am going to get a booth with little miss emma. We are really cleaning out the closets to make room for back to school fashions. Well, she is going to back to school...I just need space and new frocks.
I am seriously getting rid of some crazy stuff, so if you love accessories and stylist strange things- come and visit us over the bridge this sunday on the vintage clothes side.
by the way...for those of you Georgie Boy fans- I forgot to post the photo from his birthday bash. Vinca came over for a visit and to celebrate GB's big two year bday with us. (he is really 10, but we didn't remind him)
