evelyn's wrapping talent

I received an e-mail this weekend from a very pleased customer and I thought I would share. Mark sent me a note letting me know that Evelyn (one of our staff members here) had wrapped gifts for him on two separate occasions, the wedding of a gardener and a baptism. He mentioned that he picked out the wrap from the store but, her "tasteful, creative talents made the packages into art."

Along with the e-mail, Mark sent a few photos.
I was thrilled to read this and to see the beautiful packages- I just had to share.
Speaking of wrapping... we've been busy wrapping up boxes with our new holiday wrap that we've been getting in.
I'm just going to have to take some photos and show off these new packages!
In the meantime.. keep up the good work Evelyn! Your efforts are appreciated!

renegade craft fair

Tomorrow I am off to Chicago to attend the Renegade Craft Fair. I am glad the weather will be cooperative... the monsoons last year were super bad! I am actually looking forward to being outside on a Saturday. What a treat!
I am also really excited to scope out the scene and meet some new designers and hopefully some local ones too.

I'll be sure to post my findings when I get back.. and I'll let everyone know about all the goodies I picked up! I'm too excited to even sleep!

fashion's night out

Broadway Paper is participating in Fashion's Night Out!

Fashion's Night Out is a global initiative to promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion. Vogue magazine has put this together and for one evening the whole world will unite in celebrating fashion and retail.

Thursday September 10th from 6 to 9pm Broadway Paper will be celebrating this evening with the help of some Mount Mary College fashion students.
There will be garment illustrations as well as some live modeling!

There are over 700 retailers in New York City alone participating in the evening. There aren't quite that many in Milwaukee but, the whole Historic Third Ward neighborhood will be very lively on Thursday.
Many retailers are open later and are also celebrating in their own way.
More information on Milwaukee's Fashion's Night Out can be found here.

Hope to see you on Thursday for a night of fashion!
