When local husband and wife duo Dylan and Pamela join forces, there's nothing they cannot accomplish. Take for instance the recent refurbishing of their trailer boutique, the Dowdy Studio Wagon. With only 72 square feet to play with, they were able to convert their space into a bright, welcoming retail shop -- take that, Ikea!
The Etsy vending team pop around town in their art wagon, spreading their hand crafted designs to Dallas' masses. Silk screened art, fun wooden jewelry and their staple, silk screened tee shirts with fun designs, like quirky animals or very bearded vikings, on soft stretchy material.Mmmmmm, so soft.
In honor of the wagon's recent face lift, Dylan and Pamela are throwing it a party. This Friday you can join the Team Dowdy at their home studio, a two-car garage converted into a work space. The trailer will be there in all its glory and so will a couple of new friends; Easy Slider and Rockstar Bakeshop. The sweet to Easy Slider's savory, Rockstar Bakeshop, is new on the scene so you can be the very first (weeeeeell, second. I'm certain to outrun you) to try Dallas' only whoopie pie trailer! Oh, and Dowdy Studio is handing out free beer, too. So let's recap, shall we? Meet fun, local artists --- check. Treat yourself to a new tee shirt while browsing through an adorable trailer -- check. Free beer --- totally happening. Whoopie Pie trailer --- yep, it's on.
We'll see you at 10025 Garland Road, Suite G (75218) between 5 and 8 p.m. this Friday. Here's a link to the flyer. To see the amazing selection of whoopie pies made by Rockstar, check this link out. (Personally, I'm going for the Ace of Spades.)
