Good morning from Audrey at Little Eye Designs —
Phew! My mail carrier must be mightily confused where up until a few weeks ago all s/he brought to my front door was bills and catalogs. With all these handwritten envelopes coming to me from amazing Maine artists, crafters and vintage resellers my new favorite thing to do is come home from work and get the mail! OK, truth be told, it’s always been one of my favorite things to come home from work but this is the icing on the cake.
Today: a reminder. It’s a good idea if you haven’t sent in your application yet to make sure it’s in the mail by Friday, February 26th to make the February 28th deadline.
Another reminder: no application is considered ‘accepted’ until you’ve received and email from The BIG THAW confirming your application and your vendor fee check has been deposited. We’ve had an overwhelming demand for upstairs spaces, so those of you who end up in the artist studios downstairs will receive a $10 refund from your original check. The artist studios downstairs will be open, as well, and we will be feeding customers down the stairs the only way we know how: with candy. Also, thoughts on a purchase-based raffle have been kicking around and I’ll have more details later but I do know it will be incentivizing visiting downstairs vendors. The spaces downstairs are perfect for: vintage sellers and people who need wall space to hang flat or framed prints.
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals by Meagan Anderson and Emblem Studio
In other news, I hope to be meeting this weekend with Kris Johnsen of Emblem Studios and Meagan Anderson who are the fantastically talented artists who are going to be making The BIG THAW poster. We’ll have a run of 100 limited edition silk-screened prints available for sale at The BIG THAW. The poster you see in front of you is an earlier collaboration from the two talented artists that piqued TBT’s interest and made us say “Yes, yes. These are the people who must make our high-flying flag.” Er, poster. Still! Keep your eyes peeled for visual excellence.
