It’s a Beautiful Day on Trade Street

It’s a beautiful day on Trade Street in the Arts District. Come on down for Sunday brunch at Finnigan’s Wake or Mary’s Gourmet. Diner and then shop for wonderful wearable. Art at Retro Art Ware and at Willy Nilly, both in the 600 block of Trade St Retro Art Ware (R A W) at 608 N Trade St., is easy to find….just look for the tall, colorful tie-dyed flag out front!! Willy Nilly has its door open and the hat rack out front on pleasant, sunny days.

Asphalt Art

Who doesn’t love the gigantic asphalt canvas created by closed-off-streets?Retro Art Ware, located at 608 N Trade St., always supplies a box of colored chalk for kids to use to create art on the street pavement. One little girl lay down in the street as her mother traced around her shape.  Then the girl added hair and facial features to the chalk shape. The finished drawing was a wonderful, happy-go-lucky creation that danced before your eyes.
