We are about to get hit with a shit storm of events that will enable you to become introduced to a bounty of this city's incredible number of independent makers and vendors—the 99% of the retail world, if you will [typed to the sounds of yelling protesters outside office window]—including the first-ever Open for Business. It's the brainchild of Alison Hawley (formerly of the bygone Frank James), whose new home goods venture, Nice Work will be making its debut there, along with Heather Sielaff of OLO Fragrance. You can check out a full roster of participants for the Nov 25-27 event at the Ace Cleaners, here, but here's a quick peek at some of what we'll see from Nice Work and beyond.
