Trunk Show at Guilford Arts Center

We made our way back to the Guilford Arts Center a few weeks ago for our pre-holiday trunk show. As usual we had a good time- thanks to shop manager, Bonita Ruggow. She's such a doll. To our surprise when we arrived, the chorale group from Madison High School were singing a bunch of songs acapella- they were awesome! Check them out in the video below.

For those of you who couldn't make it to the Center before the holidays- you're in luck as they are now having an "Artistry on the Shoreline Post-Holiday Sale." Everything is 25% off!

So hurry and grab yourself a one-of-kind GG2G bag. The sale goes on until January 11th. The shop is open Monday - Friday noon to 6pm and Saturday noon to 5pm.

Christmas at the Mansion

Last weekend was Milford's Lauralton Hall's Annual "Christmas at the Mansion." They transform this old girl's school into a winter wonderland replete with white paper bag votives lining the exterior pathways. The event is a fund-raiser for a $100,000 scholarship for a deserving young girl- a worthy cause, indeed. Go girls. It was a 3-day event where we got to meet some peeps in our neighborhood. So often we traipse about the country side attending these kinds of vending events, so it was a nice change to be in our own backyard. As usual at these events, we meet som many wonderful vendors. This time was no different, we met Christine of GoGirlWrapperz. Chris and her partner Elvis make skirts for the girl on the go! Their motto is "Stay Strong....Stay Warm." The idea came about because Kris, a yoga enthusiast, wanted an alternative to sweatpants. She designed her skirts to be both warm (made from fleece) and nice enough to go out in afterwards. Next year Chris says that her line will include organic fabrics and more PET fleece. All her skirts are made in CT- yay! We took a couple minutes to talk to Kris. See what she had to say below.

GG2G's Holiday Part-ay!

Forgive us for we have sinned...well not really but December has been such a crazy month for us thus far that we haven't had a chance to blog about our 3rd Annual (although it was the 1st in our rockin' new work space) Holiday Party and Sale which happened way back on November 22nd.
We don't think anyone noticed that our furnace had broken...although our coat rack was conspicuously empty. hmm...but we digress. A great time was had by all. We strung sweet little lights up around our industrial space and it was instantly transformed into a cozy space. For early holiday shoppers, we had about 9 vendors (including ourselves) selling jewelry, stationery, cosmetics, soaps, tshirts , hand-carved ornaments and of course hella-gorgeous billboard bags.
Sign up for our mailing list and we'll keep you posted about all our upcoming events- including next year's party where we hope to stage a fashion show of eco-friendly clothing and accessories.
P.S. Thank you James for the heaters, Jenn and Jerry for bartending and Ryan for DJing.
