COFFEE SITUATION

BIO: Name's Kim Herrera Cruz, and I make delicious coldbrew that comes in 2 flavors!!

Coffee Situation pretty much started off as a simple idea to try selling iced coffee at Echo Park Rising, which I had always wanted to try it out, just for shits & giggles! So I was like, you know what, let's do it! If no one buys it, I'm not gonna die! So I gave it a shot.

So check it out, these coldbrews consist of pure filtered water and La Llave coffee, which I brew for 16-18 hours and then proceed to flavor. Abuelita Coldbrew is made with a Mexican brand of hot chocolate that comes in brick form, called Abuelita. You make this by melting it in a pot of milk, (however, I use water instead, considering its coldbrew, and refrigerate until it's completely cold before adding to the brew) and its just delicious, not to mention pretty traditional. Trust me, every Hispanic knows about Abuelita!! My other flavor, Rosewater Honey Coldbrew, is exactly what it sounds like Rosewater. Honey. Coldbrew. Nothin else!! You can taste every ingredient in perfect balance, its my personal favorite and it is pure magic!!

WILD ABANDON DESIGN

 BIO:Once upon a time there lived a little girl whose whole world took place in fairy tales. Fantastical creatures surrounded her and the dancing shadows of trees whispered whimsical stories that wove in her mind, blurring the lines between dream and reality. 

As I grew up, my childhood world infused into my art. I love to create worlds and stories behind my art that are surreal, quirky, and darkly comedic; my background in film infuses my work with a spirit of theatricality and whimsy. 

I draw inspiration from natural science, wildlife, tall tales, fables, vivid dreams, mythology, oddities, raucous celebrations, and well-designed spaces. I embrace a mindset of: if we look at the world through a child’s perspective, all things remain magical, full of awe and wonderment. 

Elsbeth Mumm is a child of California currently living in East LA with her husband and their dog. When Elsbeth isn't creating pieces of artwork she is running her own styling business for commercial and interiors, Wild Abandon Design.   She has a unicorn tattoo and loves a good cup of coffee.  

"Sacred Menagerie" art show happening June 8th at Stories Cafe https://storiesla.com/

CINDY ZELL                                  

BIO: My name is Cindy Zell and I make sculptural wall hangings and accessories in Los Angeles. WKNDLA (I pronounce it "Weekend L.A.") is named after my favorite time and place, inspired by when I first started and was making things during the weekends, dreaming about doing this full-time one day. Now it's how I fill most of my days and some of it is also spent making large-scale fiber art. 

My mission for WKNDLA is to create artful objects that are individually handmade with care and accessible to everyone. I am happiest when I can help bring a little bit of beauty into someone else's home! Every single piece of brass is hand cut, bent, soldered, filed, sanded, polished, and coated in my garage studio. They are then assembled using organic or sustainably-sourced natural fibers.

COFFEE SITUATION

BIO: Name's Kim Herrera Cruz, and I make delicious coldbrew that comes in 2 flavors!!

Coffee Situation pretty much started off as a simple idea to try selling iced coffee at Echo Park Rising, which I had always wanted to try it out, just for shits & giggles! So I was like, you know what, let's do it! If no one buys it, I'm not gonna die! So I gave it a shot.

Ok, let me rewind real quick, the REAL reason I wanted to sell coffee other than, who doesn't love themselves some coffee, am I right? But no, it's because my mornings usually start off with a delicious cup of coffee, to which I add honey and a lil rose water to flavor. Let me tell you! It. Is. Divine!! I'm pretty much obsessed with it and one day I just felt like, ghaad! The world needs to taste this!

So fast forward, I'm doing a pop-up for Shop Used Shop Local, (which is where you can usually find me) and I sell coldbrew. 2 flavors; Abuelita Coldbrew and Rosewater Honey Coldbrew. I sold out! People were totally lovin it, and I was, obviously, thrilled about it!!

So check it out, these coldbrews consist of pure filtered water and La Llave coffee, which I brew for 16-18 hours and then proceed to flavor. Abuelita Coldbrew is made with a Mexican brand of hot chocolate that comes in brick form, called Abuelita. You make this by melting it in a pot of milk, (however, I use water instead, considering its coldbrew, and refrigerate until it's completely cold before adding to the brew) and its just delicious, not to mention pretty traditional.

HOW RUDE LA

BIO: As a kid I loved going to flea markets with my mom. And it wasn't until about 10 years ago I started to shop for vintage, retro, modern pieces to sell from the comfort of my own home. It started it off as a hobby then slowly turned into an addiction. I've always had dreams to open up shop in my neighborhood where I was raised. The location changed tremendously and it grew and more people moved in.

I've been lucky to have my boyfriend who is also my partner at the shop be a part of this. We've opened our first vintage store in Eagle Rock in March of 2016. The store is small and intimate and we've got great select items.

Rapheal Glovinsky

BIO: My name is Henry Raphael Glovinsky. I was born in New York City and will be forever inspired by the city’s endless lines, colors, and peoples.

I am fascinated with color and movement. My goal is to portray the world proactively- not simply accepting first impressions as the total experience.  I am endlessly observing and questioning my surroundings.  I do not want my reality to be a snap experience which fills in the blanks before my faculties have been given a chance to customize the experience.  Like a long exposure photograph, patience is as important as the location.

Growing up I always loved to draw. I have kept a sketchbook for over 16 years. Sketching is a way for me to download my mind, interpret surroundings, and process experiences. My sketchbooks have become a record of who I am and my transformation into adulthood.
