Thank you to all our supporters Friday, your shopping resulted in a contribution to the Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund of $1060.  We are still selling our limited edition poster for $10. All the money from poster sales will be sent directly to the Fund, so we're hoping to send another $1000. Posters available online and in both Black Ink stores.

World Changing Events...


As we watch the situation in Japan with great concern and sadness, I think about all our wonderful Japanese vendors, suppliers and designers and hope they are faring well. This Ibushikawara good luck charm (above) arrived last week. It is crafted from traditional roof tile material, called Koyo Ibushi. This natural clay material has a subdued silver brilliance after firing and is strong and hard enough to weather a storm. Its beautiful resilience is a fitting metaphor.
