Setting up this weekend for a two day party with some of my favorite punks! I’m bringing out the weird creepy wonderful and uncomfortable items for your enjoyment! A fresh run of Tacoma Tumblers featuring Skulls, Dice, Kitties, and a Bunny named Frank! Also just harvested an fresh run of Pumpkin Heads that are channeling this moody goth vibe.

Saturday join myself and many other fabulous creatives for the official Tacoma Pride Makers Market. You will find us in Fireman’s Park overlooking Commencement Bay just beyond the main stage on Pacific Avenue. Come by and check us out 12pm to 6pm during the festivities throughout the day.
Tacoma Pride Festival honors the LGBTQIA+ community by celebrating pride in who we are as valuable, creative members of a diverse population in the South Puget Sound region, we invite you to CELEBRATE with Us!
PUNK ROCK FLEA MARKET returns to the aromatic environs of Tacoma, at Alma Mater 1322 Fawcett Ave, with our special healing blend of bargains, beats and booze! Hundreds of vendors from across the region will sell their finest wares, DJ’s will fill the air with their sweet noise, we’ll have alcoholic drinks for the grownups, fattening treats for the kids, savory food for pretty much everyone and the kind of open and welcoming atmosphere that makes you wish we could scrap consumer society altogether and just start over!
The PRFM remains an ALL AGES event. Bring the kids, bring your parents, bring the whole damn crew. And we are PROUD to say that since 2006 it costs just ONE DOLLAR to take a deep dive into the bowels of punk rock ephemera while supporting local independent business.
As always, the PRFM supports our friends the Low Income Housing Institute, aka. LIHI, with a donation from our proceeds. LIHI is a non-profit organization that provides homes for homeless and low-income people all around the Puget Sound, and is currently leading the effort to build tiny self –contained houses for homeless people and families around our region. More info about them at www.lihi.org.

Once again making the trek up north to Hanger 30. I am happy to announce my participation in the Legendary Seattle Night Market. Last time I was here was super fun, great crowd, bangin’ music, not to mention the amazing vendors.
I will have some new work available and some old favorites. Currently working out the kinks for a line of yard art this season, TBA. Additionally I have a fresh batch of tumblers ready to go for that special drinker in your life.
Also I am trying out some new colors to fill out the Baby Head spectrum. A Dark Green and a soothing Teal are being added to the line up. Be the first to snatch one up!
Along with the drink ware I have some ridiculously funny smiling Bunny Ornaments. a little late for Easter, but it’s never too early for a bunny?
