Saturday 4/30: Belt Buckles for Lettuce Link!
Looking for a special gift? Like to shop local? Want to support local artists and fresh veggies for all?
On April 30th, 11-5pm, Erica Gordon of Steel Toe Studios and Click! Design that Fits in West Seattle are donating 10% of all sales to Lettuce Link in honor of her new line of “Urban Farming” belt buckles.
Erica hammers, welds, and forges steel and other metals into art you can wear on your waist. Her buckles pair with the leather belt straps she cuts and colors with vegetable dyes or the "upcycled" bicycle tube belts made by her friends and neighbors at Alchemy Goods.
The Urban Farming line includes buckles with a carrot, a chicken, and a gardening fork and spade. Other designs range from the abstract (steel pebbles and concentric circles) to several made from bicycle gears, one of which doubles as a bottle opener. The bottle opener will come in handy during the event: beverages will be provided by Seattle's own DRY Soda Co.
Erica will be on hand all day Saturday to talk about her processes and show samples and photos of her work in progress!
Click! Design That Fits is a contemporary home furnishings, accessories, and gift boutique in the heart of the West Seattle Junction located at 4540 California Ave SW.
