This looks like some fun: from 6 – 10 pm tonight at 509 Wines (1300 N. Northlake Way, where the Burke Gilman crosses Stone Way, by Solsticio) there’s a silent auction to raise money for a new business, Hourglass Footwear:
Do you love gorgeous shoes? How about art? What about original art hand-painted ON gorgeous shoes…plus wine?
Great! We’ve got your Friday night covered!
Join the talented women of Hourglass Footwear in Fremont tomorrow for a fabulous night of drinking, socializing, silent-auctioning and celebrating local, women- (and artist!) owned small business. The silent auction will include, among other fantastic items: original artwork, portraits (pet and human), art classes, acupuncture and other bodywork, tattoo sessions, clothing, graphic design services, and, of course, hand-painted Hourglass shoes.
We’re also raffling off some delicious Washington wine from 509, so bring a few dollars if you want to be included in the drawing.
Hourglass Footwear is also raising money through Kickstarter: “Hourglass Footwear was founded by Kira Bundlie and Lisa Ström and features the work of ten very talented Seattle-area artists. We plan to launch a collection of gorgeous hand-painted shoes (clogs, flats, mid-heels and stilettos) in early July.”
