With or without your approval, they are going with the whole "West End" re-brand of that 10th Ave-centric stretch of downtown, and thus this weekend's events are dubbed the "West End Weekend." In preparation for Mother's Day, summer weddings, and any other occasion for shopping local artisanal goods, Flora is giving over there shop space to five different local artists for a series of vignettes:
Featuring local jewelers Beach Bones, with architectural brass pieces, Lauren Harkness’ luxurious and delicate jewelry, and bringing in some summery pops of color is Deluxe Delovely. Jennifer Finn will be presenting both her paintings and avant garde fiber jewelry (made just for Flora!), while local painter Flora Bowley will be displaying new paintings.
This Friday from 5-8 there will be an opening party with tea, champagne, and snacks, and the installation will be up through Sunday at 5 for those who like to keep their shopping and partying separate.
