HOST: Crop Salon
BIO: The seeds of Crop were planted in 2006, when Crop Creatrix Deborah Kantner Fagan was a sought after stylist for editorial/ print, bands and commercial shoots. While surrounded by innovative artists, she began to hunger to create more for herself and her community. So she did. These seeds were nurtured by her life partner/husband who brilliantly helped her design a dream space in Highland Par/Garvanza. The vision of Crop is an anthem to nature, so of course all products are focused on well-being, ecological sustainability, and delighting our clients in ways that prevent harm (and care for our adored furry friends!). We are proud to be an be a Vegan/ Eco hair studio that uses Organic hair color and products that you can feel good about, on you.
We have some exciting things happening so stay tuned. Come see our talented crew of stylists who will blow your mind with glee. Check website for more details. Many thanks to Steve at Subfolk collective for the new studio makeover.

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. 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!!
You can totally check me out at every Collective-Pop event from here on out, as well as Shop Used//Shop Local events!!

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.
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.
