#EWaroundTown: McKinley Hill Street Fair

EWSalvage at McKinley Street Fair in Tacoma
We here at Earthwise always enjoy a good party and the McKinley Hill Street Fair in Tacoma is one we look forward to every year. Last Saturday the Tacoma crew had a spot right across from Top of Tacoma, handing out free popsicles and spreading the good word of salvage.

 

 

Despite the 90º+ weather, our neighbors at Rain or Shine Pizza were on site with their mobile wood fired oven. Original House of Donuts was there too, keeping everyone well stuffed with tasty glazed goodness. JoeFroyo did their part to keep the masses cool with their unique blend of coffee and frozen yogurt.

 

Crafters and artisans from all over the253 showed off their best work. Wane and Flitch welcomed the crowds to East Tacoma with an enormous 20′ live edge slab while artists Anthony Duenas and Shaun Rankin spray painted murals in an alley off the main road. We’ll be there next year for sure so come on out and say hello!

 

Got some good photos from the fair? Post them to Instagram with #ewaroundtown!

Ask-A-Pro Sessions – coming SOON to an #EWSalvage near YOU!

NEW this week: Ask-A-Pro Series Tickets available starting 5/8/15!

 

Have you heard of our “Ask-a-Pro” series coming up this July? This year on top of our regular #YEW workshops and events, we are excited to offer a brand new Q&A discussion with trade industry professionals throughout the entire month of July – #SALVAGEDESIGN Month! While we know it seems a long time away, we are excited to announce that punch cards are available as of this week at either location – read on for all the details…

How will this work? For most of the month, a salvage “pro” be coming in for a few hours at the location of their choice to answer questions and/or provide a demonstration in-store about using salvaged materials while sharing their general perspective on salvage and reuse. These sessions are only open to pass-holders (passes cost a suggested donation fee of $10+) and all proceeds collected from the event will go directly to our non-profit partners – Historic Seattle & Historic Tacoma.

Who are these Pros anywho? If you are an #EWSalvage Calendar holder, you’ll see that we’ve already got designers, contractors, preservationists, and many more skilled individuals on the calendar. Special guests currently include: Gabe Behrend of Dolan Built Construction, Kinley Deller of King County DNRP/SWD, Connie Kay Interior Design, Jak Moroshan of Modco Design, Rosichelli Design, Pete Tabor of Spacemen LLC, Harmony Weihs of DesignHarmony, just to name a few!

More information will come as we get closer, but suffice it to say it’s good to get in NOW! Sign-up below to receive updates specifically about the Ask-A-Pro Series.
