CPC at the Lincoln SquareFarmer's Market!
So, yesterday (Thursday August 12), a bunch of us hauled over a cornucopia of shirts, prints and anything else we thought we could possibly sell to the Lincoln Square Farmer's Market. On a very hot and humid afternoon, Deborah, her son Evan and his friend Noah, and CPC interns Jenni and Maria set up a mini version of CPC under the Chamber of Commerce tent in Lincoln Square. After a few trips and a just as many cups of coffee we managed to get everything set up and decorated. Hand screen printed tee shirts festooned the tent, cards were placed on racks, prints were set out, and so forth. You can see our temporary boutique in the pictures below!
As the afternoon rolled by, we sold some shirts and cards to those who braved the heat. We treated ourselves to some of the surrounding produce and ice cream while camping out in our tent. Maria and Jenni brought some of their own stuff too to display, and among these things was Maria's hand-crotcheted bunny that welcomed guests to the tent.
We happily modeled the Lincoln Square Farmer's Market shirts and pins while Deb proudly wore her CPC apron. Mostly though, we wanted to show off our cool sunglasses. We got to see lots of familiar faces plus meet some new people that were interested in CPC. New shirt designs by Evan Silver were also on display along with some of the older prints from the $20 Poster Sale. Below you can see one of Evan's new designs and the Lincoln Farmer's Market shirt.
Special thanks to Noah and Evan for their vocal entertainment and advertising. With good company and some ice cream to go with it (with fresh raspberries on top!), we all survived through the hot weather.
