Fremont Art Walk featuring Factory 43!

2After a 2 month hiatus, it’s finally art walk time again – and we’re super excited to show off the colorful screen-printed goods and generally congenial creatures of Factory 43! We’ll be hanging out with artists Andrew Saeger and Veronica Velasco, and of course enjoying refreshments and rad tunes – come say hi!

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)!

Holiday Party and Art Walk with Careful it Bites!

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. We will also be giving away jam-packed goodie bags to the first 50 customers in the door (there is seriously some good stuff in there this year), so don’t be late!

Happy Holidays!

October Art Walk featuring Chelsea Desforges!

il_570xN.836930537_1f8lAutumn is here, and we have the perfect show to welcome the changing season – woodsy, whimsical pyrography from Chelsea Desforges (The Pastel Pug)! She uses a hot metal tip to burn her images onto wood, and then enhances the piece by layering acrylic and watercolor paints to create a striking juxtaposition between natural wood and vibrant paint strokes. Join us in welcoming this Tacoma artist to the shop for the month of October!

September Art Walk with Narboo!

We are stoked to be hosting the colorful character work of Narboo (aka Brandon Baker) for the second time here at PBG! We love his creativity and proud PNW roots, and you will too. Stop by to meet Brandon and have a snack or a glass of wine!

“I have loved drawing my own cartoon characters ever since I could pick up a crayon.” Brandon says. “I use bold lines and vivid colors to hopefully brighten up your day. If I make you smile, I have done my job as an artist.”
