One Year Anniversary Party

We’ve started the countdown – 7 days to go until our big bash!!! We have a long list of events scheduled for the whole weekend 29-31, kicking off with a benefit party for Transitions Cambodia on Friday the 29th. Our plan is to raise as much awareness and support as we can for Transitions during the party on Friday. The TOMS Artist Series event will start at 7pm, with the auction closing at 10pm. Another company we’ve partnered with for our anniversary party is a local handmade bag company, Entermodal. They’ll be setting up shop in Olio Friday-Sunday to sew, cut and chat. Entermodal will be donating 15 of their Trig flip cases to the event to raise $$ for Transitions on Friday night only. Each wallet will retail for $100 (normally $150). The best part is that Larry will bring leathers in a variety of colors, thread and tools to take your custom order right on the spot (+ a few hours – they’re handmade!). I just bought my husband a flip case for his birthday and he loves it!! It so simple, functional and beautiful. I chose the vibrant royal blue, after about an hour long process of decision making.

More of Entermodal’s collection will be available in the shop starting on Friday as well. We’re very excited to see our 1/2 mobiles we ordered and the colorful totes!! You’ll need to stop by next weekend to see how Larry and his crew are hand cutting and sewing these beautiful bags to really appreciate the craft, skill and time that goes into each bag!…Larry is known to spend 40 hours on some of his bags. I’ll leave you with a few more pictures:

If you can’t make it on the 29th and would like to purchase a flip case – just shoot us an email and we’ll be sure to put an order in for you! info@oliounited.com. More information on the event can be found on our website as well.
