When I headed out to Thread Count Saturday afternoon I wasn’t aware of what was really happening. I attended the event thinking it was going to be like a mini Indie Craft Experience event that I usually attend throughout the summer. Cool jewelry, King of Pops, art, interesting people, Tex’s Taco food truck, funky clothing, FREE Pbr… this is what I was expecting. This is what I was told. And this is what I got until I started asking questions.
Street vending is illegal in Atlanta?! Now somewhere sometime I got busy and missed this memo. But, with events like pop up shops inside other stores and the Indie Craft Experience. I guess I didn’t put much thought into it… until today. My eyes are open!
Atlast Clothing was the backdrop for the market event. Atlast, being private property, is unregulated by the city. (Nice one guys!) Creative Comp Cards is a “directory of artists, musicians, designers globally you should know connecting social networks for the independent artist with an indie budget.” (Very cool.) All combined you have an afternoon of shopping, food, beer, and awesome people. (Score!)
Hats off to Creative Comp Cards and Atlast Clothing for bringing together an event like Thread Count. Well played.
