WELCOME TO THE FLEA, CINCY SMART CAR!

We're excited to let you all in on something fun we've been working on. The June market is the first market where we are welcoming a local (mid size) market sponsor. This month we brought in Cincy Smart Car  and are pretty dang excited about it. They're bringing a car and giving away a weekend with a smart car and a chance to win race vouchers for Cincinnati's color me rad run. Also, a photo booth! Who doesn't love a Photo Booth? SA-WEET!

Here's a bit about Cincy Smart Car | 

smart center of Cincinnati is the only smart dealership in Cincinnati. We are located just 1 mile north of the Kenwood Towne Centre. Smart is all about simplicity and being ecofriendly. In fact, the cars are 85% recyclable and totally customizable.

Have you guys heard of TeuxDeux? It's been around the block for some time now but now that we're in the thick of season planning we've been putting our teuxdeux to good use.  It's a $3.00 a month service that allows you to keep an organized, pretty looking to do list of all the awesome things you need to get done- finish an item on your list and it gets crossed off, because we all love that feeling of crossing things off our to do lists.  You can give it a whirl free for 30 days. Duex it!

What other services are you guys using for your business? We're always open to trying new things out....

CREATIVE MORNINGS COMES TO TOWN

In case you've missed the scuttlebutt about creative mornings coming to town let us fill you in.  CM is the brainchild of Tina Roth Eisenberg- designer and blogger over at Swiss-Miss, founder of tattly and TeuxDeux- needless to say she's our kind of gal.  The idea is to bring together a city's creative community once a month for breakfast and a short talk from a local creative.  Last friday the 21c hotel was nice enough to lend their space for the very first CM Cincinnati chapter. The flea's awesome baked goods vendors supplied the breakfast and Bill Donabedian of Midpoint and Bunbury paved the way as the first speaker.    It was an awesome morning of networking and connecting with folks right here in our city.  We know how easy it is to get caught up in the online world but the importance of actually engaging with people in real life is so important and what makes a community thrive.  We're super pumped for next months talk (date to be announced soon) and are stoked that such an awesome monthly event has come to town. Enjoy some photos courtesy of Nick Dewald. To view the entire collection have a look HERE.

MERRY FROM DOMESTICA

 

We've really, really been enjoying the last couple issues of Domestica Magazine- produced right here in our backyard. The December, "MERRY" issue was such a treat to browse through and so nice to see on physical pages how well stocked our city is with unique, quality gifts, passionate people, and endless beautiful backdrops for storytelling and picture taking.  If you haven't seen a copy yet, pick one up at a slew of awesome establishments or have it sent directly to your mail box.   We're definitely glad to add Domestica to our list of rad things that are happening in Cincinnati.
