Stationery Sets Continue to Sell December 19, 2016 08:30 1 Comment

Holiday markets fill our evenings and weekends this time of the year. We had the honor of being a vendor at the Ellevate and Colorado Ivy+ Women’s Jingle & Mingle event. On Thursday, December 8, I packed up our stationery sets and headed to One Cheeseman Place. 

Immediately, I was welcomed into the space by the coordinators of the event. It was myself and a Carly Oduardo, a vendor with Threads Worldwide. With our displays set up, we chatted about social enterprise and how both of the business we represent give back to communities. The jewelry was just as beautiful as the mission of Threads Worldwide. I placed the cards on the table and throughout the night, I invited attendees to flip through the Colorado, Holiday and Transformation Collections. 

As the event started, I met women who are CEOs, business owners, and engineers. The room buzzed with conversation between women just beginning their careers and others who have worlds of experience.  

Each woman at the event made a point to stop at the vendor tables and ask us about our organizations. Most of them walked away with at least one stationery set. They were drawn to the table by the beautiful artwork, but to them, buying cards from Art Restart was more than the beautiful image--it was a way to support other women. 

Before the guests entered, I snapped a photo and posted it to the Art Restart Instagram. December 12, we saw my photo on the 5280 Get Involved page! Abbey White says, "Picking the perfect holiday card can be tough. But picking up a one-of-a-kind card that benefits a local nonprofit is easy." Abbey is absolutely right. Any time you're looking for a card, holiday or general greeting, you can benefit the artists that come to The Gathering Place. 

Need a last minute gift to take to a holiday party or family event? Swing by TGP during hours and pick up a stationery set, call Teresa (303) 996-9034, or email her teresa@tgpdenver.org for details. 

Our stationery sets are a regular product for Art Restart now, so consider buying them for your year-round greeting card needs!
