Memories of The Earth's Cutest Retail Store
Did you know that several years ago I owned a store before 'i like you'? It was called 'Curious Eidolon'and I called it 'The Earth's Cutest Retail Store'. I stocked all these cute kawaii products, art prints and brands such as Threadless, Kozyndan, Kidrobot, James Jean prints and Ugly Dolls. My favourite thing that we stocked were these limited edition crochet Star Wars characters. I had a lot of fun organising in-store art exhibitions and parties and stocking artists and designers that I loved. The parties were pretty crazy and I would have themes for them such as a kawaii dress up party, the butchered christmas show (we had plush meat toys showcased at our front window display) and a fun Halloween 'horror ball' themed party. Nearly every party included free cupcakes. One time, a customer made 120 cupcakes for a shop party- and customised all the guests names on the cupcakes! It's a little bit embarassing looking back at the pics now because everything is sooo cute- even for me! LOL. Anyways, I thought I'd post these pics I just found in a shoebox in my room. Fun days!
