Dredgers Union Closing…

10 Aug

It has been an amazing year for all of us at the Dredgers Union.  We are proud to have been a part of the revitalization of the city which we all love.  We feel fortunate to have met so many wonderful people that share in the same values and passion that the Dredgers Union was built upon.   But any true “Renaissance” can take time, and time doesn’t always favor those who are at the forefront of change.  It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closing of the Dredgers Union.  Our last day will be Saturday, August 18th.  Until then we will be having one final in-store only sale.

We wish everyone the best of luck.

Cleveland…  Keep on keepin’ on…

It’s THAT TIME OF YEAR again!!!!  As you can see, we here at Dredgers Union/216 HQ are pretty darn excited about it too!

Things are a little different this time around and I for one, cannot wait.  Typically, I create a temporary little retail store out of misc and random furniture and fixtures.  This time, I have challenged a new design/architecture/landscape firm in town, MAKER, to take my typical budget and create a much more contemporary and clean look to house all the eclectic, colorful and whimsical items that we often get for the event.

We are going to be a little 216/retail factory over the next 2 weeks here, troubleshooting ways to house all the BAGILLIONS of amazing CLEVELAND-designed items we will have for sale June 15-17th.

Anyhow, we’ll keep you posted as we get closer, but be sure to save the date.  The party, Friday June 15th will include all our favorite types of shenanigans, including DJ Peter PleasureCruise, and an after party on Greenhouse Tavern’s Rooftop featuring DJ Reena Samaan!

Don’t you just LOVE SUMMER!!!!  ALSO, as long as you’ve got your calendars out…don’t forget to get your tickets NOW for Cleveland Museum of Arts Annual SUMMER SOLSTICE PARTY on June 30th.  Not to be missed this year!  In fact, when you attend 216 you can pick up a great party dress for the occasion!

See you soon!
