Okay, we vow to communicate a little more loudly.  To post a little more frequently.  To upcycle a little more collaboratively.  To grow a little more collectively.   And to drop some roots a little more permanently.  ........Yeah, we said it, the P word.  In 2010 we opened as a pop-up and we still feel passionately about activating vacant space this way.   But now we get to be part of a bigger collaboration with creative reuse at its very center and we are opportunists, especially when a historic Cleveland neighborhood is at the center of a project.
We're partnering up with the Upcycle St. Clair project (a project of St. Clair Superior CDC in partnership with Nicole McGee of Plenty Underfoot and the Cleveland Flea), and we're moving on into the St. Clair neighborhood!  More details in the coming month(s)!  Will you join us as we take this big leap?!
