EMBRACE

In collaboration with our friend, The Ceremony Doula – Pylon Market presented a different kind of dance party, on the darkest night of the year to line up with the Winter Solstice of 2021. This was a follow-up experience to Pylon Inter Medial 2 and we wanted to feature it as a private event with a natural wine bar, snacks, and live DJ sets curated by Apt E. EMBRACE was a space to move, to commune with your own darker parts, and to be in levity of community from sunset to midnight on the longest night of the year.  The...

Midtown Maker's Market

  Invited to be a part of a winter pop-up market, we meticulously picked then packed our inventory and headed to the small industrial street of Terry Ave. North in South Lake Union. There, we joined with local artists and filled the room with wares, prints, one of a kind clothing and accessories. It was truly a wonderful community event to be a part of at the end of December. The room was filled to the brim with very talented artists from different parts of town and shoppers were able to taste through delicious coffee, cake and savory bites. We met...

With our current permanent space on hold, sharing access to our ever-growing collection of goods and love for creating memorable experiences had taken precedence above all else.

Gift Shop

674 S King St. The Chinatown-International District feels to us like a beautifully cacophonous symphony—a sensorial call-and-response of multilingual neon, global treasures, and hypnotic flavors. And yet the unlit, quiet sign on Seventh and King has always stood out. The words “GIFT SHOP” are almost all that’s still legible, but somehow it manages to bookmark a distant time and hold open a portal to another place.  In the early months of the pandemic as we secured a storefront for Pylon just a few doors down in the same historical Milwaukee Building, we were always looking up. And imagining. What could...
