Exit Through The Gift Shop

December 21, 2010

Have you seen this film? Exit Through The Gift Shop, a documentary produced by British stencil artist Banksy. I just watched it via Netflix recently and if you are interested in art at all, I’d recommend seeing it. Some nice clips of a few well known street artists getting up, some interesting ideas on the state of the art market, artist notoriety & the “hype machine”.

If you are planning on placing an order from my shop & need it in time for Christmas, please order by Sunday, Dec. 19th!

The US Postal Service has set a cutoff date of Dec 21st for Priority Mail (domestic shipments only) to be delivered by Christmas. So, if you place your order by the 19th, I’ll make sure your items are in the mail by the 21st. I usually ship via First Class Mail, but from now until the 21st, I’ll be upgrading every shipment to Priority mail, for no extra charge! (This includes shipments within the USA only).

If you’re a super last minute shopper & end up missing the deadline for the 19th – feel free to send me an email, I might be able to accommodate & have your order shipped via Express Mail or another expedited shipping service.

The tree is up! I can’t believe it’s December & so close to the end of 2010. Seems like this year flew by. I’m planning to start (and hopefully finish!) my Christmas shopping tomorrow. :-)

If you’re in need of a last minute pie recipe for your Thanksgiving festivities tomorrow, I can vouch for the tastiness of this recipe: Cranberry Apple Crumble Pie. (I cheated & used store bought pie crust – but it was still a crowdpleaser.)  :-)
