Vending at Collingswood’s March Second Saturday

There is one word to describe my vending experience last night: frigid. Surprisingly, not a ton of people stroll the charming streets of Collingswood in search of that “need to own it” piece of artwork in 30 degree temps, in the dark, barely missing my table of merchandise because I chose a location with no…

International Women’s Day

My mom was the perfect example. International Women’s Day is meant to be celebrated the way we celebrate someone’s life who has passed on. After someone leaves, all we’re left to think about is the impact that they left behind; their imprint…on our hearts, on our minds, on who we’ve become despite whatever adversary their…

My Love Affair With The iPhone X

I bought the new iPhone X on Thursday and have been stunned by all the features it has to offer, including the sublime photo quality. I basically have been on my newest play toy non-stop since Friday morning, capturing everything from morning coffee, to afternoon coffee, and of course, late night coffee. The new camera…

Art is Subjective: Welcome to Bad Art and Meow

When I was living oversees, my mother ran into my high school art teacher and said, “art is subjective.” My mother was defending someone who mostly traced outlines of other people’s artistic creations and still expected her daughter to get an A for effort.

What I Learned About Grief, As A 20-Something Who Lost A Parent

I used to write because I loved it. But now I only write as a way to consolidate my grief. I’ve given myself a pretty decent window of time for me to be able to grapple with the fact that my mother died from Stage IV Breast Cancer. I’ve done all the things you’re supposed to…

Vending at the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market

I discovered the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market last April and it’s been a love affair ever since. There’s a special vibe that belongs solely to the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market. Everyone who goes there just has this edge about them: from the vendors to the audience, everyone is so punk. They just don’t…

Portland Saturday Market

What I loved about the Portland Saturday Market was oh, I don’t know: everything! Allow me to introduce myself to the point where you and I become a little more acquainted. I positively adore outside markets. Whether I’m buying organic fruit, flowers, tastefully appointed bad artwork, or fresh alligator jerky, there isn’t a bone in…

TRAVELING PDX

Have you ever traveled someplace new and the second your foot smashes the pavement, you just feel like you’re meant to be here? That’s me with the city of Portland, OR. It’s been a solid sixteen hours since I landed in Philadelphia, away from quaint coffee shops and men painted silver, miming for a dollar…
