Merry Brovember!

What in tarnation is Brovember, you ask?
It’s the nickname we’ve given our month-long workshop at 816 N. Broadway in Downtown Oklahoma City. If you’re curious, come to an open house any Sunday in November, from 2-6 p.m..

Lovely farm tables from Kahoy Studios give us plenty of work space.

You can sign up here to join us for social crafting. We’ve found the space to be very helpful to our productivity!

Sometimes we stay late, crafting into the night, with passerby noticing our spectacle.

We are so thankful to Downtown Oklahoma City Inc. for arranging this, and for Factor 110‘s lovely pipe and drape which keeps us cool and allows us privacy when we need it. We also appreciate the generosity of the building’s owner and future tenants, who are flexible and great to work with! Finally, we’d like to thank Kahoy Studios for lending us the gorgeous farm tables and benches.

JD finished a custom order less than 30 minutes into Brovember - there's something in the air that makes us very productive!

Please join us, because we won’t have this space for long – let’s enjoy it while we can!

Community Profile: ProjectOKC

Each year, Deluxe chooses a local nonprofit to fundraise for at our annual event. This year, our raffles will benefit ProjectOKC. Look for more information about our raffles later this week.

What is your organization’s mission?
ProjectOKC is a group of online and offline friends committed to loving and serving Oklahoma City. We partner with non-profits, churches, schools, civic organizations and businesses to bring good to the community.

It might be a party for urban children, movie night with senior citizens, basketball with students, and even random acts of kindness. We want to network with groups and individuals alike, not caring about who gets the credit or recognition. Only caring about the families we are able to connect with.

Who is your target population?
We are focused on improving OKC so many of our volunteers and the people we serve are local. We recruit from social networks and help people in need all over the city.

What are the greatest needs you are seeing from your clients now?
We are a pretty unique non-profit, one that focuses on getting people to volunteer. In an odd way, our clients are everyday, busy people that need to get off their computers and do some GOOD! We help kids, seniors, get people plugged into the arts, and are involved in acts of kindness towards people in need.

How do you meet these needs in our community?
VERY PRACTICALLY! We give box fans to seniors in nursing homes because the home couldn’t afford the AC bill. We create birthday cards for children in foster care. We feed the homeless, clothe the poor, and support the MANY non-profits doing so much GOOD in our city. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel, reinvent services, we can assist those already doing great work by providing volunteers.

What volunteer opportunities do you have?
Almost any volunteer opportunity you can imagine, check out projectokc.com for more information.

Is there anything else you’d like shoppers to know?
We know what it’s like to be busy but still want to give our time in the community. ProjectOKC makes it easy to give just a few hours at a time while still making a measurable difference.

What is Wagyu Wednesday?

One of our amazing raffle prizes has many people wondering, what is Wagyu?
RedPrime Steak, part of Oklahoma City’s A Good Egg Dining Group, has generously donated dinner for two during any Wagyu Wednesday at their upscale Downtown restaurant.

Learn about this very special steak here, in a video from NewsOK.com.

Tonight in OKC – Trendy Third Block Party

There’s something going on over on NW 23rd – we noticed it when Cuppies and Joe was about to open, this time a couple years ago. These adorable bungalows were getting renovated and filling up with cool businesses.

Now, the owners of these businesses have named their district Trendy Third, and tonight is a celebration of the great things that are happening. Head over to Pippin & Pearl and MisteRabbit, and pick up some vintage goods and a little something for yourself – like one of those FriedOkra sock monkeys you’ve had your eye on! There are lots of goods from Deluxe artists inside Pippin & Pearl and Cuppies and Joe.
