It's Raining Outside... February 19 2013
Wow, really? It is!? Tell me more oh wise MUNKY!
Ok, settle down. I chose that as a title for this post because, for some reason, while staring out my window, I thought, "I should proably update my blog". It has been a while, indeed. I apologize for the lack of posts.
I've been doing this OMUNKY thing for a while now, and I find this time of year to be probably one of my least favorite. It's cold outside and I sell t-shirts. Hmmmm. This was never meant to work out. One day I may start catering to your winter wardrobe, but that day hasn't come yet. For now, I can only prepare for the spring.
And what a spring it's going to be! Just thinking about it makes me excited. I have already begun to sign up for shows (some of which I didn't get into last year). I am also hard at work on a very special set of designs that will be promoted in a very special way. I can't wait to reveal those to you. But, for now, it remains hush hush!
In the meantime, I currently have some amazing shirts in the shop. If you haven't picked up one yet I'm not sure what you're waiting for. They won't be available in your size forever. So get on it!
Ok, February, I'm over you, and I'm over winter as a whole. Spring cannot come soon enough.

Fair Lawn Street Fair Recap June 11 2012
I wasn't too thrilled with the turnout last year when I attended street fairs in NJ. It just seemed like, compared to places like Pelham and Nyack, NJ was a bit lacking. As a fan of second chances, I thought I would give my neighboring state another try.
I spent the night before last constantly checking the weather forecasts for Fair Lawn. My show a week ago, in Suffern, got rained out. I did not want to deal with that again, especially since I would be doing the Fair Lawn show all by myself.
Overall, the show was decent. The weather forecast definitely kept a lot of people away, but I had fun. The organizers for this event were some of the most efficient I have ever worked with. There were many more of their employees walking around than I had ever seen at a street fair before. Fair Lawn is a nice little town. Definitely a place I felt comfortable in.
I also want to take this time to thank my awesome neighbors, Alan and Stacey (pictured above). They were kind enough to entertain me during the show and help me break down some of my equipment at the end (we had to close early to avoid the oncoming storm). Stacey runs a cute little jewelry shop on Etsy called Petal & Stone. Alan is the self proclaimed "muscle" and "labor". Overall, they make a great team.

Nyack's Famous Street Fair Recap May 21 2012
Yesterday's Nyack, NY street fair couldn't have been on a more beautiful day. Just a little bit of wind to keep the air slightly cool, lots of sunlight, and wonderful people to chat it up with. Here are a few photos for your viewing pleasure.
Make sure to check out OMUNKY's upcoming shows page to see where I'll be next!

Suffern Street Fair - Super Windy! April 30 2012
Looks like I'm going to have to invest in some type of tent-grips. That or even more weights! I felt like I was on a cruise ship yesterday. My tent was basically a sail whose job it was to move the "Island of Suffern" around the Atlanic Ocean. Wow!
So I threw a video up for you guys to get an idea of how crazy it was. That's my brother, Sam, trying his best not to blow away. In the end, the tent held strong, we didn't lose any products, and we left Suffern unscathed. But, sheesh, can we turn down the wind next time?

First Kids Photoshoot April 08 2012
You'd think I would've done this sooner! OMUNKY has some sweet kid-sized shirts, yet there was no way for online customers to see that. As of today, this has been fixed!
So parents, let's get some kids tees for the little ones, ok?
