After Summer must come Fall

Fall in Jackson means that sweater season has arrived! Without surprise, some of MADE's artists have reinterpreted how to stay warm in Grandma's favorite sweater.

Wrap yourself up in one of these scarves hand-made from 100% cashmere sweater sleeves!  Each is unique in color, exceptionally soft, and will keep you warm in Jackson's chilly fall.

Or - snuggle up with one of our new socktopi friends!  Each socktopus is one-of-a-kind and hand-made from recycled cotton and wool sweaters.  Not only will they add fun color to your life in these colder months, but they make incredible companions for kids all ages.

Make sure to visit us this fall and follow us on facebook for updates! Cheers!

Seasons? Top 5 Gifts for this Season!

Hey MADE Fans~

In Jackson we have apparently skipped Spring, and are caught jumping back and forth between Winter and Summer.  70 - SNOW - 50 - SNOW etc.  We will see what tomorrow brings!

No matter what the weather, one thing that is for sure - it's Graduation Season!
Our List of  TOP 5 Graduation Gifts from MADE

1.  Glass Belt Buckles from Strapped Belts.  These have been a huge hit around Jackson.  For High School Seniors headed to UW, or somewhere out of state - this is a perfect gift to help them "represent" their Wyoming roots.

For non-Wyomingites - there are hundreds of handmade designs to choose from, and we can even do custom buckles for the school of your choice.

2.  Who doesn't like a good Graduation card filled with cash.  This one might be a little bit inappropriate for some folks, but we have lots.  

We also have lots of Thank You cards, and sets of cards for the Grads to say thanks for all the great gifts, so send them in too.

3.  These laptop shoulder bags are amazing.  Each one is hand sewn using multiple suit coats.  The inside pockets help carry a little bit of everything.  The padded pocket is perfect for a laptop too.

Your new college student will look great walking around campus in style, and no two are the same. Unique, stylish, repurposed, TWEED and hip!

4. Wallets and Checkbooks Wallets made from the softest leather around.  These super popular simple leather wallets/billfolds are all silk screened with different images.  You can easily find the perfect image for your grad.  From bikes, to trees - anatomical hearts - to owls!

We also have matching journals for the student on the go!

5. Oprah loves these and so do we!  These unique little albums are the perfect way to capture senior year.  They hold just a couple dozen photos, so it is not an overwhelming task to fill, and you can capture all the best memories.

Lots of great fabric choices in stock.

We have lots of great items in the store as we gear up for summer so come take a look!

Is Your Stationary Bike Fulfilling You?

Old Fashioned Cocktail Glasses

 Missing the open road, 
fresh air & speed of your road bike? 
MADE carries glassware, flasks, t-shirts, wallets & cards with road bike images... 
and even a vintage tri-cycle! 

Vital Industries out of Denver is pretty cool. These glasses make fantastic gifts!

The artist screen prints the logo directly onto the glasses using a glass ink that cross bonds with the surface, making them dishwasher safe -  so they are nice and durable.


Tall Road Bike Pint Glasses only $11 each at MADE

Road Bike T-Shirts for Men, Women & Youth
Come see all of the bike "gear" we have in the shop. 
There is lots to look at, and hopefully we can help hold you over until Spring finally arrives!

Tram Buckles Now Available @ MADE

Strappedglass.com Tram Buckle available @ MADE

Just like the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort did a last year, Strapped has updated their Tram (buckle that is)

The last tram at the village was big and boxy, not to mention it was kind of slow and held about 60 people.   The NEW tram is sleeker looking, a little more stylish - it's fast and can handle about 100 (most of these numbers I learned from my 4 yr old nephew on the Casper lift yesterday, so don't quote me) 

If you have seen Strapped Glass's last tram buckle you will know that the new one is a lot sleeker, way less boxy, and one customer just told me that it even looked fast!  

The buckles are available at MADE and will be on the web soon @ www.strappedglass.com so take a look and let us know what you think.  The pictured buckle is orange but about 20- colors available!
Come See the New Strapped Glass Tram Buckle and Many More at MADE

Thank You Notes The Kids Can Do

Do it your self stamp set!
With the Holidays behind us the only thing left for the kids to look forward to is writing those Thank You Notes! Right?

Well these Winterscape Stamp Sets will help make it a little less painful and a little more fun.  The set of five stamps are all made of natural rubber, and they use reclaimed wood too.  The sets are fun for thank you notes, but they are sturdy and durable so kids will play with them many times to come.  With the handy box set, when you are done you can just pack it back up and store it all for next time.

We even have the ink pads so no need for a run to Staples!  Stamp Pads come in Black, Blue, Red & Green.

Each set is handmade in San Francisco, and they are sold around the world, but you can get them right here in Jackson, so swing on in and get those kids to work.

Adults Can Get in on the Action too!  Here is one I MADE

Factory Studios Opens Door With Great Success.

Factory Studios
A picture taken a few nights before the Grand Opening shows off the new home of more than a dozen artists in nine private studios.

Last night was the big opening, and while I was in my studio, chatting with folks wanting to see the new digs, and discussing some new projects I have coming up, the streets outside were lined with cars and folks were having a hard time finding a place to park despite the numerous large empty lots of surrounding building that sat empty at the end of the work day.

The line up includes, writers, textile artists, screen printers, glass artists, musicians, activists, bloggers, printers, sculptors, graphic designers, welders, and a whole lot more.

Travis Walker was the brain child behind, Factory Studios and lots more have jumped on board.  I know, I for one, and am excited by the new space, I have been working in there for three months now.  Sometimes I am the only one and others I am surrounded by others working and creating, but the buzz has been building, and if the 1000+ attendance last night has anything to do with it, I think the buzz will continue.  My new studio gives me more room, (I guess anything is better than the dining room table!) and I have already begun to collaberate with other artists.  I am sharing equipment with another glass artist, and learning new techniques, and incorporating silk screening into my designs.

So next time you are getting your car clean or fixed, picking up a UPS package, or cutting through the backway to the High School stop in and say hi.  There is bound to be someone there to show you around, and you might even catch an artist in the act of Creating!
