One of FOLKLIFE's biggest covid hits was the closing of retailer’s doors. We are huge local shop lovers, and it is a tragedy to see these entrepreneurs, and those they represent, suffering. We were also so excited to work with local goods, art, and artisanal lovers and to have FOLKLIFE join the crew of fabulous items displayed. To see it on shelves along with other work? So exciting.
Of course with the advent of online, it hasn’t been the end of the world, but we were missing that face to face contact we were so looking forward to. Strangers delightfully finding it by running their fingers over pages, instead of….the glare of social media.
