Hidy ho, friends!
Those of us who aren’t at Burning Man this year have something else to be pretty, pret-ty excited about. I’m talking about the Pot + Pantry summer newsletter, folks. Yeah! Way better than putting on some costume and sitting in dirt for a week, right? (Don’t answer that.)
While I’m taking a little break from store events for the moment, I’ve got a couple new products and collaborations that are finally ready to be unveiled. For one thing, I turned this:
My hand-painted windows have been turned into these limited edition 2-color letterpress posters, printed on Holyoke Premium Cotton 280# letterpress paper in Bone. The exceptionally talented James Tucker of The Aesthetic Union printed these, and they’re hot off the (Vandercook) press just in time to celebrate sweet Julia’s 100th birthday. I’m pretty sure her favorite colors were Aubergine and Warm Red, which—oddly enough—are the colors of the posters. Fancy that! These 11×14 inch posters can be purchased individually for $40, or as a set for $75. Limited edition of 50 each.
Together, we came up with a custom design that’s a mix of modern and retro (I’m calling it ‘Mod Leaf’) which perfectly combines our two aesthetics. The bright and colorful coaster are $36 for a set of 4, and trivets are $28 each. They have been selling like hotcakes since we got them in last week, and we’ll be fully in stock by Friday.
Are you ready to Party on Block 18?
It’s coming up soon on Saturday, September 29th! Put on your stretchy pants and eat your way down the street as Bi-Rite, Delfina, Tartine, Namu, Izakaya Yuzuki and more offer up goodies to benefit local nonprofits. There’s also a Pie Baking Contest for you non-professional bakers out there. Pies will be judged based on flavor and appearance in the following categories: fruit, chocolate, nut and other (what does that mean? I’m as intrigued as you are). Entrants will be chosen on a first come, first served basis. For more information on the block party and to enter the contest, click here.
Enjoy the fleeting summer sun, everyone! Til next time.
