Planting the Seed

It’s happening. Blades of grass, neighbors, bikes…they’re all making an appearance these last few days. As exciting as that is, we are even more excited about a nice handful of activities Brown Ink is thrilled to be a part of this Spring, starting with a brand new workshop series called Handwritten!


Handwritten is a collaboration of Foxglove Market & Studio, Gina Sekelsky Studio, and Brown Ink, who are all passionate about the handwritten word and paper goods. Join us for the inaugural workshop at Foxglove Market & Studio on Saturday, April 26th, featuring two writing sessions. The first session guides you through ways to improve your handwriting quality and style, and the second session will provide creative inspiration to your letter writing. Check out the details on the Foxglove site here. At the same time, Brown Ink will also feature a Pop-Up paper shop (alongside the always beautiful Foxglove paper goods collection). Don’t miss out on this unique event!


The following weekend Brown Ink is headed back to St.Paul to join Minnesota Makers at the popular, second annual HAMMS EVENT, Saturday May 3rd, 10-4 at the located old HAMMS Brewery.


This market is unique in that the concept not only supports small and local businesses but actually gives back to the owners. In 2013 one Minnesota Maker was given $5,000 to help push their business to the next level. What a fabulous idea! Tickets are only $10 in advance and the first 100 ticket purchasers receive special offers (20% off Brown Ink Paper Goods). This is a must attend event! (Wow, I’m starting to sound too much like a used car salesman.)

This is just the beginning of events we have in store for you this season. So breathe in that fresh air, find dirt to dig, take loads of allergy medicine (or a nice netty pot), and come see us this Spring!
