It's all so crazy, this is happening. I was kid with a dream and suddenly that dream is coming to life. It just goes to show, if you work hard enough, it will happen!
We recently signed the lease agreement for a roughly 700 sq ft space at the Troutdale Art Center across from Glenn Otto Park. We couldn't be more excited to start making the space our own. We've got wall racks in the making, display cases being brushed off, cabinets being moved in and product on its way!
Check out our Instagram and our blog spot for our grand opening event. We are planning for a sunny Saturday, fingers crossed in June, with raffles, giveaways, food, art and fun. We have a special deck in the works for Eastside Roll-In's grand event. Here's a hint, it has skulls, as many requested.
For all of our artists out there, we will also be running a contest soon. Keep an eye on our events page under the skate local section of our website for updates. We will be asking for submissions for an art contest, the winner will have a limited run of shop decks with their art work featured. Details coming soon.
So get out there, spread the word, buy some shirts, and hit the ground rolling!
While we are working on setting up our space, feel free to stop by the Art Center at 903 E Historic Columbia River Hwy and check out the stellar artwork and jewelry by the locals, Loree Harrell, Matt Eaton, Kathy Kollenburn, Bernice Wright, and sculptures by Rip and Alison Caswell. We also found out yesterday, someone is also opening a small shop in the same building and will be focusing on collectibles. We even saw a Pokeball on the wall.
