CHICAGO, meet the FW2014 collection “LOST IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION” in person!

::WHAT TO EXPECT::
— You’ll be by a ton of shopping and eats to indulge in through-out the neighborhood, so definitely make a day out of it if you’re coming from far! Save time for parking.
— The California Blue Line might be closed for construction. You can take the California Bus from the Belmont Blue line if you’re coming from the suburbs – or you can take the Division bus to California or the Chicago bus to California and walk a short distance – or take the Western bus to Division and walk a short distance. Use TransitChicago.com to map your route.
— Saturday night from 5-9pm is California Nights, where all the local businesses open their doors in support of art, vintage, and community.
– Debit/Credit payments are accepted + preferred.
– Cash is cool too – but I’m not sure how much change I will have on me through-out the show!
::EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT::
This weekend only, be prepared for some savings! All orders over $150 will be given a 20% discount of orders at my Humboldt House pop-up. NOTE: DISCOUNTS ARE OFFERED IN PERSON THIS WEEKEND ONLY. We may do more Chicago pop-ups but may not be able to offer a discount at all of them.
::CAN’T MAKE IT?
If you’re unable to attend and you’re interested in making arrangements to see the collection personally, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re headed back to Mexico on the 28th of this month, so please reach out ASAP!
::ABOUT THE COLLECTION::
The FW2014 Bird Trouble collection is a luxurious one consisting of eight handcrafted bag designs to switch from wearing every day to being carried along your travels. Each are handcrafted by Alexz Sandoval in her Guadalajara, Mexico studio using leather and fair trade wool blankets that were naturally dyed and handcrafted by craftswomen+men in Oaxaca, Mexico who beautifully continue to this day to use sustainability and traditional methods in their work.
Alexz was inspired to create this collection through-out a year of change, travel, and living in Mexico. Each bag is a reflection of being a bad-ass in the style department while supporting a fair future for our planet and purchasing sustainable maker-made fashion.
