G Diapers at The Boulevard

Two posts in one day! Gosh you are lucky. I just have so much to share. This Saturday (November 1st) The Boulevard and NoDa Kids will be hosting an event with G Diapers form 11:00-1:00. There will be demonstrations and lots of question and answer time. If you don't know about these earth friendly diapers that are all the rage with celebrities right now, then I will expect to see you there!

Nifty fabric use

Next time you are in The Boulevard ask the shop girl to show you these fabulous bowls and vases by Vessel Vixen. They are bright, funky, and totally functional. These little beauts are such a great example of re purposing. Hope, the artist, uses a special hardening solution to make the pieces water proof and virtually unbreakable. Also, the animal print makes a bold statement! Who can't think of someone in their life who would LOVE this?

Friends and Family are more valuable than ever

KaDee Kay, a popular vendor here, will be hosting a friends and family night at The Boulevard on Friday, October 24th. These hand-blown decorative bottles are just some of the products this mother daughter business has to offer.

Right now in America times are uncertain, but one thing you can count on is your family and your friends. The people closest to us are the most valuable thing we have right now. What I love about the KaDee Kay girls (Karen, Danielle, and Kelly) is their commitment to a quality product and to each other as family business owners! If you are supporting the emerging businesses this year, it doesn't get better than this.

Nest Bags Patio Show

Stop by The Boulevard during Gallery Crawl this Friday and check out the patio show! Kim, the owner of Nest Bags will be showcasing her quality and original bags on the patio behind our building. I've personally had my eye on a few of these beauties and I can't wait to see what else she brings on Friday. Her line is not only purses, but also slippers, and make-up bags in bright colors and perfect sizes. The girls at The Boulevard hope to see you here supporting your local small business owners!

Robin and Daughters handmade jewelry

I have my eye on this beautiful necklace from Robin and Daughters. The colors are great for Fall, but versatile too. Robin, the owner, makes all of her jewelry by hand with quality stones and metals. Make sure you stop by her booth on customer appreciation night or the next gallery crawl. I am making it a point during this unfortunate economic time to support people and artists who own their small businesses. The big corporations don't need our help. Join the shop girls and buy better quality from business owners who care about every customer. Stay tuned to the blog and I will showcase more and more of the fabulous things you can buy from The Boulevard's business owners! There might even be sneak peek of the door prizes for Friday night.

Ahoy Matey

Did you think that red and white striped leggings were just for pirates? Think again friends. The Boulevard now carries this style (see pic). These aren’t average leggings though. They are called “Skids” and have many functions. They look cute, they protect little legs crawling on the floor, block out UV rays, and best of all they don’t have to be removed to change a diaper. Don’t believe me? Stop by the store and see for yourself.
