Call for Artists!

Chartreuse is participating in the Bay View art crawl on December 6th. It's sponsored by the Bay View Neighborhood Association.

Saturday events run from 4pm-9pm and include the KK HOLIDAY ART CRAWL where artists will be located in UPtown Bay View, within the businesses on KK between Becher and Lincoln. The art crawl is a perfect place to buy local art as you do your holiday gift-shopping. In addition to the art crawl, you’ll find a silent auction, wine tasting, carolers, demonstrations, decorated storefronts, movies and live music, and plenty of kid-friendly events. There will also be a food drive to benefit the Bay View Community Center’s food pantry.

Looking for something that would work in the space, and fit within the concept of my store. Themes working with the environment, nature, recycling, refurbishing, reusing, sustainability... get creative!

Cute baby alert!

Just look at this satisfied customer! sportin' his li'l "Live Green or Die" organic cotton tee.


And, hey, to all of you out there, if you send me any cute kiddo pics wearing Chartreuse goods I can pretty much promise they will make it on the blog. ....may take some time! but I would love to see any of the young 'uns modeling my merch!

Public Library Liars

Two of my favorite things together! Like chocolate and peanut butter, or chocolate and coffee, or mint and chocolate (I guess I really just like chocolate) Anyway, most people who know me also know that I've also had a life long love of all things Hello Kitty. So when I found an organic cotton Hello Kitty graphic tee (made in the USA to boot) I was one happy lady. I've been waiting forEVER for them to arrive and they FINALLY came in and boy, were they cute!

...But, then a sad thing happened, searching for the size on the label- we happened to notice that they were marked 6% organic cotton, 94% cotton. ...WITH the word "organic" not once but three times on the shirt. HUGE across the front- and then again with miss Hello Kitty's face across the hip- and then again with brightly colored (supposedly) eco-friendly inks, across the collar.
Sufficed to say my mood swung very fast and now I was mad. This is just the very thing my store is against. I find this sort of misrepresentation disgusting, misleading, and borderline fraudulent. I will spare you the details of the conversation I had with the Public Library the company selling these and other eco-centric and politically messaged T's, trying to defend their products. I just hope that the "made in the USA" label isn't of a similar ilk... some sweat shop on some off shore island that is 'technically' usa. Everything I have ordered from this company, Public Library, has been shipped back.

So happy. Then so sad. So fast.

Gallery Night at Chartreuse

April 18th 6-9 PM

Photography exhibit by Benjamin Pagenkopf.

"I want to take pictures of things that nobody has seen."

Ben creates photographs of nature that have a great ethereal quality. This is in part due to Ben's unique ability to capture water and light. He has a special sense of color, pattern, and texture. Ben also has High-Functioning Autism. Autism can create challenges in communication, language, and motor skills. It often intensifies perceptions and can result in sensory overload. Ben's photographs are multi-layered and quite sophisticated for his age as well, being just 14 years old. At first glance what may look like a simple and beautiful nature photograph, when you look closely you can often find hidden surprises. Details, that are sometimes funny, sometimes thought provoking. Ben uses his unique eye to create wonderful photography and in doing that he gives the viewer a chance to see the world through a different perspective.
