Anyone who goes to/is exhibiting at the North American Handmade Bike Show and can prove it gets 15% off their purchase at Quirk through Monday! Come visit Saturday from 11 to 4 or Monday from 10 to 5 and save 15% on your whole Quirk purchase. Just show Quirk some NAHBS action.
It's always nice to hear a good word floating around about you.
Our friend Phil (yes, the internet celebrity) sent over a picture of one of his coworker, Ellen sporting one of Katie Kortman's awesome felt headbands.
Phil also introduced a new term into my vocabulary that I'm going to have to be sure and use: fascinator
Disclaimer: (We think Ellen is far cuter than the Wikipedia models)

We're SO ready for warm weather. Right now we're looking ahead to the days we will be able to walk down the street without freezing!
In honor of the coming warmth, our 'hood has decided to celebrate with an ongoing event called Saturday Stroll. The first official "Stroll" will take place Saturday, March 20, 10-4pm, and from then on, every third Saturday of the month. Every venue will have something different scheduled, but some things mentioned have been wine tastings, lunch & drink specials, trunk shows, mural painting, music, and more...
We hope you're as excited as we are! Be sure to let us know if any ideas you have to make these events the best they can be.

Along with the VCU Metals project, we had a super cute Valentine's event at Quirk this weekend. It was a little too busy to be snapping a whole lot of pictures, but early on, I was able to capture the amazing Stacy Moore's set-up. Also, just look at those beautiful orchids from Chadwick's. (You may not be able to see the delicious cupcakes from Ipanema, but trust me. They were a huge hit!)
Does it get any cuter than this? Two thumbs up from the peanut gallery!
So last week's Metal's project to raise some dough for relief efforts in Haiti was a HUGE success. The VCU Metals Department was able to raise $3,750. Big thanks to everyone who came out, and especially all of the students who participated in this wonderful project.

Set-up for the VCU Metals dept. jewelry sale to benefit relief for Haiti has begun!
You can't really see it in these pictures, but the work these students have created is incredible.
It's great to see such a wonderful gesture and huge effort being made by everyone participating.
The sale goes through Saturday, February 13 - so come in and check out the work for yourself!
(But these pieces have already sold, sorry... you snooze, you loose!)

Snow much blogging to do today!
(Pardon the pun)
News flash: We will be postponing our Valentine's event originally scheduled for tomorrow until next Saturday (11am - 4pm). See you then when all of this snow is gone!
On a MUCH lighter note, check out who we were rubbing elbows with this past week in NY.
