Fremont Third Thursday with Foamy Wader!


Alexa Allamano is the creator behind Foamy Wader – a locally handcrafted jewelry line inspired by the sea that has been one of our (and your) favorites at PBG for years. We are excited to be hosting her for a trunk show this April for FTT!
Mother’s Day is coming up fast (May 8th!) so this is great opportunity to pick up a beautifully crafted pair of earrings or a necklace for the special Mom in your life! Plus, you know, drinks and snacks.

Located in Seattle, Washington, Factory 43 hand-forges quality graphic goods – including t-shirts, screen-printed posters, and letterpress cards. Their unique illustrations mix hand-inked drawings, collaged photographs and found textures with quirky subject matter. Factory 43 is comprised of Andrew Saeger and Veronica Velasco, who met while working in the art department of the now defunct Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Their shared passion for design and love of hand-printed objects combined with the death of journalism led them to found Factory 43.

Happy New Year from PBG!

PBg gals
Happy New Year everyone! We here at PBG hope you had a  fabulous holiday season – we certainly did! We were busier than ever and that equals more fun too. So as 2015 comes to a close, we will leave our snarkiness behind the counter for a moment and offer a sincere, wholehearted thank you for supporting us over this last year. We wouldn’t be here without all of you sharing our love for fun, functional local gifts and cards.

We will be closed January 1st – most likely nursing hangovers and noshing on  greasy food and  strong coffee right along with everyone else. This also means no Fremont Art Walk – we will be keeping the delightful plush of Careful It Bites up for one more month before we welcome another artist in February.
Cheers to an amazing 2016!

Happy Holidays from PBG!

You better watch out, it’s officially shopping season!  Thanks to everyone  who came out to support us for  Small Business Saturday – it was our  best ever  and we have you to thank! Now that the season is in full swing, we’ll be updating Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with updates on events, holiday greeting cards, and kick-ass stocking stuffers. If you’re not following us, please do! Santa will make sure you  won’t regret it.

Happy Holidays (if you dare)!

IMG_1708The most wonderful time of the year is here! Come drink and eat and be merry with us, all the while welcoming to the art walk one of PBG’s favorites – Kelice Penney of Careful, It Bites! She will be offering her usual line up of cozy characters, as well as some one-of-a-kind wall art.
