In case you haven't heard already... We are taking our shop to the next level this month and are moving to the main highway as of May 1st, 2010!!! What does this mean for:
-Artists? May 1st through 6th we will be doing artist intake. If you are interested in showing at the new location, please contact me immediately via email. I will be contacting all in-store artists shortly with transition details.
-Customers? We will be easier to find, we will be open more and we will have a lot more to offer you in the near future.
-Other businesses? We are not intending on taking over the Vashon artist market (yet). There are only so many artists we can house at one time, and we are looking forward to rotating artists on a regular basis so everyone can have a turn! With our store on the main highway, we hope other businesses recommend our store as a point of interest like we do theirs!
-Alteration clients? Things are on hold until May. If you have not been contacted regarding your alteration order, please call me directly and we can make sure you get your garment on time.
-The old location? We are currently deciding what to do with the other space. I have been planning an artist collective and if you are interested in participating or renting the space, let me know! It's all still up in the air, but it is still in the hands of Good Merchandise.
And other exciting updates:
Strawberry Festival status update: We will be on the main highway for the Strawberry Festival, and due to budget constraints from the move I have decided to cancel the booth. We will, however, be open for the weekend and will have access to the store front with plenty of traffic at our new location!
Vashon Craft! Sundays from 5-8: This adult group for crafters is an alternative to the other well respected "Stitch n' Bitch" groups on the island. Vashon Craft! will occuring every Sunday through the month of April. Please RSVP if you are interested in attending.
We provide in-store alterations, mending and fabrication of clothing and fabric projects at very affordable rates. Bring in your items for timely, guaranteed repairs. Many small repairs can be performed while you wait!
