      30 Minute Paint Job with Indy Solomon

      30 Minute Paint Job with Indy Solomon

      This Friday & every Friday this month we'll be hosting artist extraordinaire Indy Solomon. Indy will be live painting and creating custom art on clothes, canvases, shoes, purses, etc.

      Here's how it works:

      1. Bring one item for Indy to live paint with premium acrylic for leather goods or fabric paint for clothing

      2. Pay a flat fee of $50 paid at the beginning of your appointment and you will walk away with a finished product

      3. Brag to your friends (totally optional but you'll want to)

      Please note: The smaller the item, the more coverage, but items of all sizes are welcome. Materials that CANNOT be painted include silk, velour, velvet, and wool (i.e. sweaters).

      You don't want to miss this! Book your appointment here.

      Affirmations - LGBTQ+ community center

      Affirmations - LGBTQ+ community center

      Affirmations is a LGBTQ+ community center that was founded in 1989, their mission is to provide a welcoming space for everyone to express themselves as they please. All gender identities, sexual expressions and cultures are welcome and can find support, socialize, will feel safe and have unconditional acceptance. Affirmations is more than just a building, they are authentically bringing love, inclusivity, hope and dreams to their youth and seniors.

      We are so excited to be teamed up with them & Gathering Coffee Co to donate profits from our Pride goods! Profits will go towards supporting this amazing community center and the great work they do.

      Here's a bit of what they do:

      Offer resources for the youth like development and leadership programs- where they help mold the youth into becoming young adults with skills such as resume writing , mental health, racism, and much more.

      Affirmations Angels is a senior program that help with the needed care of individuals that were affected by the HIV.AIDS crisis in the late 90's. In partnership with SAGE, Affirmations Angels provides non-medical assistance such as transportation, grocery shopping, light meal prep and other daily needs to the often marginalized members of the community. With COVID taking place they have zoom meetings frequently to check in, stay connected and complete grocery deliveries. 

      Affirmations also provides support and discussion groups. These are free and intended for anyone who needs support, connection and community. Some of the different groups they have are coming out discussions, disability, gentle yoga, LGBTQ+ parents, mens discussion, LGBTQ+ people of color, and transgender and nonbinary discussions. These are all held virtually at the moment and can be found on their website. 

      Other services they have include inclusion training, advocacy and health & wellness. If you are looking to volunteer, support, give or donate to this amazing center that wants to help individuals thrive in life you can do so right on their website under the get involved and support tabs.

      We are so happy to say that were featured on Seattle Gay News for being a LGBTQ small business! Seattle Gay News is one of the largest newspapers in the world catering to the LGBTQ community. The article says:

      "If trendy Pride wear is what you're looking for but you're also environmentally conscious, then check out Not Sorry Goods [notsorrygoods.com]. Based in Detroit, this is a Black- and Latinx-owned business with a focus on sustainability. It offers a variety of Pride products made out of recycled materials, a cute black denim jacket with rainbow cursive writing on the back advocating for recycling, and perhaps best of all, a long-sleeved black crop top with the words "Queer Not Sorry" embroidered above the heart. The items at Not Sorry Goods are a bit more spendy than those at other online and local stores, but they're worth it for the good quality and recycled materials."

      Thanks Lindsey Anderson for including us!
