Story of Stuff (July 31, 2009)

Flint Handmade (FH) cosponsored a screening of Story of Stuff (http://www.storyofstuff.com/) with LINK Community Arts at The Lunch Studio. Story of Stuff is a 20-minute video that discusses production, consumption and sustainability.

Flint Handmade featured four vendors who use reclaimed, vintage, and natural materials: Crystal Pepperdine (beautiful JUNK), Michelle Stolz (Aisle 3), Erin Caudell (Stone Sheep) and Sarah Richter (yarnscratch).

Check out the pics!

Our sign is so cute!

Tunde Olaniran faciliates the discussion and calls up volunteers for the "trash bag" activity.

Attendees open their "trash bag" and discuss how to reduce consumption and waste.

Erin Caudell and Nayyirah Shariff love shopping at the Aisle 3 table! Most Aisle 3 items are made from vintage treasures...which keeps them in circulation and out of the trash!

The handmade dolls by yarnscratch are adorable! Most yarnscratch creations are made from donated yarn or fabric.

Tracey Whelpley of The Lunch Studio checks out a notebook from Michelle Stolz of Aisle 3.
