Thanks for joining the Made By Hippies Tie Dye Newsletter. Our plan is to send out about one e-mail a month with some news about our tie dyes and where we will be vending as well as a special tie dye deal!

Made By Hippies busy Spring has now become our busy Summer. But busy in a great way because we are busy making and selling tie dyes. Our online sales have continued to roll in day after day and our vending sales at the Gresham Farmers Market here in Oregon have been going great! Last weekend we were at the Sandy Mountain Festival in Sandy, Oregon and broke last years record for all time tie dye sales in one day! So we are feeling pretty great as the rest of our summers plans unfold in front of us. This weekend we are going to be vending at the Gresham Farmers Market again but it’s also the Gresham Art Walk so it’s bound to be a busy day. Next week are are loading up the van and driving to Minnesota for the 10,000 Lakes Music Festival. We don’t have a booth this year (we did in 2006!) but are planning on meeting up with old friends and partying and I’m sure we will end up selling a few tie dyes along the way!

Later on in August we are going to be rocking steady at the 5th Annual NW World Reggae Music Festival here in Oregon. This will be our third year vending there and we have a 10’x20′ booth reserved in the stage area so if you make it to the festival be sure to come by and check us out!

This was in last months newsletter but in case you still have not seen our American Apparel Tie Dye video go to youtube.com and search for “made by hippies” the video can also be found on our website, www.madebyhippies.com – the video shows Made By Hippies working with American Apparel in April 2009 teaching them how to tie dye!
