It's Official.

All By Hand's days are numbered. Actually, (counting today) 11 days left. We are sad to bring you this news, however we're looking forward to possible ventures in the future. This all being said we would like to cordially invite you to our CLOSING PARTY!!!

When? Saturday May 29th!
Time? 9:30-7 (normal Mall hours)
Where? (for real? are you actually asking this?) ALL BY HAND! soon to no longer be located in the shops at Liberty Place.
Why? Because it's your last chance to support the great local artist's featured in the store!

We are planning this big party (complete with snacks and *gasp* beer and wine... what's the mall going to do? kick us out?) to celebrate all All By Hand has been! We're definitely going to miss you all and this funny place. Many of the amazing artist's will be here for the party to tell you all about their great work!! (They're practically the closest thing you'll get to meeting a real life celebrity!) Please stop by and send All By Hand out with a bang.

All this being said, Abby and I really want to take the time out to thank all of you who have been here for us! We could never have done this with out you. You're all so amazing. We'd also like to send some particular shout outs to Jon, Jenn, Bridgett, Andrea, and Ted. If it wasn't for all your great work in the store we wouldn't have been open as long as we were. Also Adele Smith, Beverly Winter, Mr & Mrs Flanigan, Mr & Mrs Lose, Arnold, and Darryl if it wasn't for all your financial advice and sometimes help we really would have never opened! Thank you to all the Messages staff and Watch Co. staff for all the love and support you've shown us during these last few months! (We love you Kira, Roxy, Craig, & Maddie!) A BIG thank you (thank you, thank you) to every artist who has every contributed anything to All By Hand. You are all so amazing in your craft and we love all the personality you've brought to the store! Finally a huge thanks Karen Pollard and Jill Scarlett for all the support and faith you've had in us. We really (I mean really) would not be here if it wasn't for you. You have no idea how meaningful you have been to Abby and I.

Thanks so much to everyone! We are eternally grateful. Come out Saturday the 29th and show us some last bit of love!

(for one of the last times...)

Julianna & Abby (forever your All By Hand gals.)
