Belizers!


BEEEELIZZZEEE!!!


Following tradition, Derek had the chance to get down to Belize again this year. He's a few shots from his trip...

The most exciting aspect of traveling is discovering the different cultures and landscapes that define a region.  In early May, I was fortunate to take part in an excursion to Belize.  This Caribbean coastal country is rich with culture going back to the ancient Mayan civilization through the British rule in former British Honduras.  The present day Belize is becoming an amalgamation of even more international cultures from North America, Europe, and Asia.  The topical geography and enriched cultures of this region creates a multi facet destination for adventure, enrichment, and relaxation.

We spent 3 days in the Placencia Peninsula and 2 days in the western border town of San Ignacio.

Buttons!


so many gorgeous wooden storage units and fixtures.


A few weeks ago, we got to take a quick trip to NYC and visited the most charming, beautiful, amazing (not enough adjectives to describe!) shop that we've come across in a loooong time.
 The minute we walked into Tender Buttons, it felt like we stepped back into time. This tiny shop is stocked floor to ceiling with vintage and new buttons from all over the world. Not only were all the pieces beautiful and full of history, but the way they have archived and organized everything is inspiring. Got a few pieces this round. Cannot wait to go back!



could have stayed here for a long while.


we just can't help it! we love buttons!

Where Were You?


Where Were You?


Fresh off the press, our new Dallas letterpress poster "Where Were You?"  Inspired by a wonderful documentary and to quote a t-shirt that we've been seeing around town... "Dallas vs. The World."












City of Hate Movie

City of Hate: Dallas and the Assassination trailer from Quin Mathews Films on Vimeo.

Ever since we've opened the shop, we've been so incredibly lucky to meet some of the kindest and involved people in Dallas. We met Quin Matthews almost immediately and he has continued to be so incredibly supportive of us and our shop. He came in a few weeks ago and told us about another project that he was working on which coincided with the 50th anniversary of J.F.K's assassination that was screening at the Sixth Floor Museum

The City of Hate is a thought-provoking documentary on Dallas's role in the assassination and subsequent aftermath of Dallas's reputation.* As three second-generation immigrants that were born and raised in Dallas, and, now faithful residents and proud business owners, this film was particularly poignant to us. Dallas has given us business, cultural, and personal opportunity. And, we hope many people watch this film.

*We only have the trailer here, but it looks like their Facebook page has updates on future screenings.


Thanks Dallas Observer!
