Our Beats Antique/ Tribal Fest Weekend

Tribal Fest is over and life is back to normal for all of us - whatever that means.

Many of us didn't vend at Tribal Fest itself this year, but preferred to vend at the Beats Antique Show that Thursday night, at the Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol, and then for two nights at the Tribal Fest Afterparty - same venue - hosted by DJ Amar.

Friday night was our first fashion show as a collective and it went off without a hitch. We did a lot of planning, organizing, model wrangling, crazed construction and sewing beforehand - and despite our hectic schedules (Rose went and got married the weekend before!) we pulled together an amazing show. Thanks to everyone for all their hard work. Thank you to Amar. Thanks to the Hopmonk Tavern (and their lovely meals!). And thank you so much to our beautiful models who had to stand half naked in the cold before they went on...........photos coming soon!

We always pull a great little space together wherever we go. Each of us brings our unique tastes, flair, and expertise to the table - literally - to produce ambiance and a unique shopping experience several grades up from your average festival vending. We are genuinely happy to see you again, meet you firsthand, and show you what we do!

But at night - with Lee's vintage lamps, and everyones' mirrors, props and merchandise, the booth pops! Its such a pretty place to come and hang out at. We actually like being there and it doesn't feel like work. Well, after we've set up that is...........please support your vendors - all of them (not just us!!!)  at least say hi - because we all travel to get there - to get to YOU - and the overhead can be mighty steep to say the least! Its actually very hard work schlepping, setting up, taking down, packing, unpacking, and repacking,  but we do get to have a lot of fun! "Work" does have its perks! We all hung out at Tribal Fest during the day, some of us worked, performed, some shmoozed, some of us even took a much needed little road trip through the woods and to the sea!
