Our Newest Friends...and Our Newest Addition!

I'm sorry I haven't posted lately. My world has been just one hot mess! But I think we're almost back on track.

First, and most exciting, is Joie Studio's newest friends Fugu Fugu Press. I met Ken and Shino back in May at the National Stationery Show and loved talking with them. They are also based in Pasadena, which made it exciting. When I was looking for space for Joie Studio's newest addition, I approached Ken and Shino, and they were so nice as to let me plop our newest acquisition in their shop:

It's a Vandercook 4! Notice the cabinet doors in front? It makes it an "Old Style" Vandercook 4. Later models have open shelves and drawers on the bottom. An interesting thing about this press is that it is a factory rebuild, as evidenced by the "99-" in the serial number.

More glamour shots of the Vandercook:

Notice the delivery tray in the bottom left corner of the last picture? I need to go get some nuts to secure the delivery tray onto the Vandercook. Did you see Fugu Fugu's cards in the background?

Here are some pictures of the Fugu Fugu shop:

There's an awesome vintage gas station outside the shop, and in the shop, Fugu Fugu prints everthing on a black ball Heidelberg and a 12 x 18 C&P. More pics of Fugu Fugu Press can be found on their website.

Woo Hoo! Holiday Event Schedule!

I just got word tonight that Joie Studio has been accepted into Felt Club: Holiday 2008 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. That, combined with Joie Studio's glorious return to San Francisco for Bazaar Bizarre, makes a pretty darn nice holiday fair schedule thus far. I'm very very excited about this lineup because it has been a goal of mine for Joie Studio to have a booth at Felt Club, and I am in absolute L-O-V-E with everyone I met up in the Bay area at the last Bazaar Bizarre and have been itching to go back for the holiday show.

I've posted the event schedule on the right here on the blog and will add to it if I decide to do another show.

Yay! I'm so excited!
