We're back! After a little post-birthday break, Michelle and Emily are excited to welcome special guest Amber Favorite of A.Favorite Design for an on-location episode at Nighthawk in Albany Park. Amber gives us the behind-the-scenes of relocating her design studio and creating a community letterpress space, all with the help of a Kickstarter campaign. Get some tips and tricks for launching your own Kickstarter (big or small) and learn how you can support Amber's amazing project!
It's our ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY Episode!!! Recorded LIVE at Lillstreet Art Center's West Wing Drawing Studio, Michelle and Emily welcome an awesome group of Pancake Town listeners to talk about mixing politics and business... and eat cake!
In this week's episode, Michelle and Emily invite you to join them (and Emily's husband, Josh Wentz) for a very special on-location recording at Chez Simo in Ravenswood. Like true small business owners, we multi-task recording a new episode while also celebrating Emily's 40th birthday! After two bottles of wine and some crème brûlée and chocolate mousse, we're not entirely sure what we talked about, but you can bet there was talk about craft shows, Etsy, social media and stuff we hate.
Yes, you're seeing that right... this week's episode is OVER TWO HOURS LONG. So, grab a glass of rosé and some strawberry shortcake (like Michelle and Emily did) and get comfortable. After we rant about politics and feminism for over a half an hour, we finally get to the really good stuff: shout-outs of stuff we love all made by independent businesses!
