A CanDid Affair

This past Thursday Show & Tell had the privilege of hosting a trunk show for CanDid Art, an amazingly fun and funky accessories line designed by Oakland native Candice Cox.  Candice, a graduate of Howard University, spent time in the corporate arena before deciding to pursue a career path that was a little more creatively fulfilling. Out of her desire for something more creative CanDid Art was born.  Although Candice currently resides in New York the flair and boldness of her leather and feather earrings, stone rings, and body chains definitely have that Oakland swag!

We had so much fun with Candice that we have invited her back for a couple more appearances before she returns to New York. Make sure you come by the shop to meet her and to buy some of her gorgeous hand crafted pieces on Thursday Jan 26th between 11-7 or Saturday Feb 4th between 4-7 at the Show & Tell Spread the Love Event.

Sometimes you need some encouragement

Building a successful business from scratch is not easy and sometimes you just need a few inspiring words to carry you through the challenging times.  So glad that I came across Poetic and Chic today, a great blog by sf based Annie Wilson and so glad she shared this awesome print by ElloGovna.
