New Aggie Zed

Aggie Zed stopped by today to replenish our supply of her sculptures. In addition to her Bull Trophies and Dog Men she had some cats. Aggie's famous cat sculptures are new to Quirk. They have such personality you think they might walk across the shelf. Maggie has been talking to them all afternoon. Come and take them home with you, save them from our resident crazy cat lady.

Time to Recoup and Rejuvenate

We had the best time this past weekend. With First Fridays Art Walk, Katie's Surprise! birthday bash, and Broad Appetit food festival, the whole weekend was action packed. We had such a good time that I have called in a Quirk employee stunt double to help hold down the fort.Evidence of our good time will be available shortly on Smile booth. The Hello Katie crew did a smashing job. They brought us David Shultz and The Skyline as well as dance party action with DJ Rodney. To top it off there was the most exciting photo booth action ever, and it all happened at Gallery 5. Awesome awesome and awesome. It was so awesome all the cool midtown kids are writing about it.

Here is my version of Katie wearing her super cute Utility Canvas shirt dress.  It is not available again until the Fall, but in the meantime, their cute home accessories and pouches great anytime!
