is it really november 18th? impossible.
there are about one million things to do and see and buy this time of year. it’s a little overwhelming. downright appalling. we hope to help you narrow it down, by offering you a glimpse of what we are going to be up to. we say no to doorbusters. we say no to death-by-trampling. we say no to a spending frenzy, and we say yes to a simple, localindiehandmade (can anyone give me a better word for that?) purchasing experience.
bricolage will be CLOSED on “black friday.” while we are a for-profit business (retail, no less) there’s no doubt that we depend on our customers efforts to come in to our shop and spend their money. we get that. but we also get that this culture we’re in is pretty unconscious about spending. bricolage wants to not only bring you goods that were made with intention, we also want you, dear customer, to be intentional about your purchasing. so, without trying to sound too preachy, we’re going to join the consumer movement known as buy nothing day, and spend the day with our loved ones, or perhaps participate in a flash mob. (oh, and see you saturday.) *wink*
we have been working tirelessly on a veritable product line for the trey mcintyre project 9+1 show. if you’re a fan of the company – or curious about them – this is an amazing opportunity to check it out. plus look at incredible art from 20+ artists. plus witness the unfolding of what is guaranteed to be a night of surprises.
and THEN…two days later, we’ll be doing a little hip holiday action at the flying M in nampa – which has turned into a full on block party, with vendors also set up at the white pine, brass razoo, puffy mondaes and the shed. it’s like christmas shopping, only hip. hey nampa, how’d you get so cool?
hope to see you somewhere soon!
