There have been so many wonderful and exciting things keeping us busy around here! Let’s see… where to begin…
We are happy to be participating in Bike Craft’s online storefront. They are still in the process of ironing out the details of their soft launch and plan to go in to full launch early May. Stay tuned for an update on that!
The PDX bicycle show was a blast. We met some really awesome people making some really awesome things for bikers, our of bike parts, and the like. We got to hang with Julien the Rebicyclist as well as our new buddies from the Lumberyard. The Lumberyard is opening this spring and is seriously awesome. We definitely suggest checking it out when you can!
We are happy to be part of Crafty Wonderland’s Super Colossal Spring sale happening at the Convention Center on May 12th. Come check us out, we’ll be unveiling a new product line and would love for you to be the first to see it!
We started working on a collaborative effort with Joemil Santos of Three Eyes Studios as well, so be on the lookout for a new shop and new product line launching this spring.
We are getting our summer festival line-up in order but plan to be hitting quite a few of them locally. Look for us at the Mississippi Street Fair, STP Finish Line, Alberta Street Fair, and Hawthorne Street Fair to name a few. First Thursday is on the list as well. We are definitely looking forward to some warmer weather and to seeing your face!
We are pretty stoked on participating in the PDX Bike show this year. The basics are: March 24th and 25th at the Portland Expo center 10-6 on Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday. Lots of cool stuff to see and buy. For more details: visit the Pedal Nation Website.
Rhythmic Metal is stoked to be selling our handmade belt buckles at Redux on 8th and Burnside (east side). Tamara is super friendly and super rad and hand-picked and awesome assortment of some of our coolest buckles to sell in her store. Stop in, say hi, and pick up a buckle for you and a friend. Stay tuned… Rhythmic Metal is on the prowl and will be integrating in to more Portland area stores in the near future.
Our first holiday season as a business treated us well. We enjoyed the craft shows we participated in and are looking forward to what this year will bring. On January 11th, we welcomed our baby girl Elliot Winnifred Stocking Into the world! She was 10Lbs at birth! We couldn’t be happier! We could be more rested… In due time I suppose!
A new year, a new life, and new products coming your way.Trent is hard at work designing and refining and is hoping to bring more than belt buckles as the year unfolds. Be on the look out for wall pieces, sculpture, lamps, candle holders, and, of course, more belt buckles. We’re working on more designs for our classic recycled bike chain buckles as well as new images for all of our handcrafted steel buckles. Keep checking back, visit Etsy often, and let us know if there is something you want to see from us.
We are super stoked on this year and hope you are too!
