Trick or Treat

Posted by Renee Pak on

One of the most exciting time in Gilman Village.

On this year’s Halloween, a beautiful deer greeted cutest trick-or-treaters. Each year, number of balloons we have to prepare have been increasing, but all the wows from little visitors make all the manual labor we put in totally worth it. 

 

We are so glad that we, the Gilman Village Merchants, can make this happen for Issaquah and the greater eastside community. Hope you all enjoyed this year’s Halloween. 

 

Happy Halloween to you all!

Macrame Night

Posted by Renee Pak on

We were blessed with a beautiful summer night for this macrame workshop. The smoke cleared up and the air cooled down just enough for this night's event. Awesome @chels_jack came out to teach us. AND all of the talented ladies stepped up with their creativity.
Beautiful Night and Beautiful Art!

on Thanksgiving Day

Posted by Renee Pak on

Starting Studio Den has been one of the most challenging and fulfilling ventures in my life. Though there is still much more to be done going forward, I am grateful for what Studio Den has become so far. As I am sitting here reflecting on my life and many gifts it had brought, I have to take time to let you know how much I appreciate you for being part of my journey with Studio Den. Your encouragement and feedback over the years have definitely helped shape Studio Den. I sincerely thank you. 

with heart full of gratitude,

fall reminiscence

Posted by Renee Pak on

Around this time of the year, I cannot help but look back on the fall of 2013. Raindrops rolling off the edge of the roof, leaves sweeping across the boardwalk, my newly opened shop in beautiful Gilman village. My scarcely placed furnitures with my first few products, and noticeably empty space between. That's when and where my excitement and anticipation of becoming a small business owner grew. Some days were quiet. Some days were more eventful. But all in all, it was a precious time for Studio Den.

So it's been over four years since. It has not been an easy road for this retail newbie, but I stuck around because of the endless love and encouragement from so many of you. I am not great at speaking out about my gratitude. But I can honestly say that till this day, I cherish the memories of your first visits and conversations we had. Those precious moments and the many more of your visits since make up the last four years of Studio Den.

As we are launching our new website, I want to use this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your outpouring support. Without you, this would have been just a dream of mine.
