We are 1976

Screen shot 2013-10-15 at 9.59.26 AMAttention Texas: You can now find becky’s buttons & things at We are 1976 in Dallas!

We are 1976 is an independently owned boutique in Dallas, Texas that carries an array of thoughtfully curated items and they recently added yours truly to the mix.

“1976 was a year of revolutionary change. Apple threw open the doors of imagination, Tiananmen Square launched a reverie for freedom, and we were born. Now, all grown up, we celebrate the cultural revolution that was born in the year of our birth (well, Vynsie’s and Jully’s — Derek was born in 1977, but we let him join us anyway). The declaration of freedom from rigid boundaries, so that art is not just paint on a canvas; humanity is not regional but global; the earth is not only where we live, but our source of life; life is serious, but also precious and should be lived with joy, passion, a giant wink of humor, and a great deal of thoughtfulness. It is this thoughtfulness with which we choose every item and art offering in our store, gallery, and workshop. Want to know more about our store? Come on in. Every item in our shop has a story and we love to share those tidbits of history with anyone who has a mad case of cultural curiosity. We are Vynsie, Jully, and Derek and WE ARE 1976.”

Welcome Willow

As many of you may already know I have been looking to expand my reach and find more stores around the country and beyond to carry my line. I’ve been focusing so much of my attention on shops out of state that I neglected to realize all the great communities spread around Colorado including Littleton. I haven’t spent much time in Littleton (aside from our scooter clubs yearly ride to Palmer Lake which takes us down the vibrant main street) until my friend’s Mandy and Scott opened up their shop Clever last year. Since Clever has opted to go the mobile route and shut down their brick and mortar location in trade for their awesome airstream trailer, I was given to opportunity to sell my work at Willow!

Willow is a beautiful locally owned artisan market located right in the heart of Littleton’s downtown at 2400 West Main Street. Meeting with the owner Helen made me feel right at home and seeing work from several local artists and friends of mine was a pleasant surprise. If you have not yet been I encourage you to check this lovely shop out and perhaps pick up something for mother’s day (which is quickly approaching). If you have been, go back : )

I am still accepting suggestions if there is a shop in your area that you think becky’s buttons & things would make the perfect addition to, let me know.
