Collective Saints and Sinners Party

I recently posted about setting up at the new co-op in downtown St. Louis called the Collective.  If you haven't read it yet, here it is.  We're really excited about being in a space with other creative people and can't wait to see it grow!
They have recently gotten their website going too.  Check it out!
Since we are one of the vendors, we were invited to a Saints and Sinners costume party to celebrate the opening.  My mom and I were joined by 2 of our employees, Emily and Katie.  Here they are below.  Katie wore a really fun red flapper dress!
This is my mom in our space.  She had a mask to go with her furry vest but it was hard to keep on with her glasses.  Sorry for the dark pictures.  It was pretty dark in there because they were doing an awesome light show.
There were also cupcakes from The Cup, wine from Copia, and pizza from Pi.  Basically my personal heaven..

This is me with Brian Simpson, owner of East + West in Kirkwood.  He also has a space in the Collective.  He makes a pretty good zombie I think. 
I waited too long to plan my costume so I just had to settle for the tried and true witch hat.  It's basically the go-to costume for the person without a costume.

This is all of us in the space.  I wish the picture had turned out better!  Darnit! 

See the lights on the wall?  It says MX below because the Collective is a part of the Mercantile Exchange.  It's basically a series of buildings with shops and dining including Pi, the Blues Museum, the Collective and the new movie theater.  I think it's going to be so amazing for the downtown area. 

We had a great time at the party and it made us even more excited about the Collective.
The Collective opened today so you've gotta check it out!  Washington Avenue has really grown and I think you'll be surprised if you haven't been downtown in a while.  Let us know what you think when you visit and be sure to tell them The White Rabbit sent you!
