Grey Gardens Forever: An Etsy Crafting Party
"This is the best thing to wear for today, you understand. Because I don't like women in skirts and the best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a short skirt, I think. Then you have the pants under the skirt and then you can pull the stockings up over the pants underneath the skirt. And you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. So I think this is the best costume for today." -- Little Edie, Grey Gardens
Now throw on something a little Grey Gardens (seriously, have you seen the movie yet?) and join us on Friday, June 10 from 1-8 p.m. in the Fresh City Lounge Level 1. (after 6 p.m., enter thru West entrance only)
We'll have some fabulous Grey Gardens inspired crafts to do and you can bring something you're working on to freestyle craft.
You'll party like a Bouvier-Beale with Edie-approved nibbles and sippies.
For your crafting inspiration, we'll show clips of Grey Gardens, The Beales of Grey Gardens and the Drew Barrymore redux. Need more coaxing? See the clip below and you'll discover how fashionable these two odd recluses were.
And if that isn't enough, we'll treat two of you to Madame Defarge Bucks for a $75 shopping spree in the Fresh City Lounge. To enter, all you have to do is “Like” our Fresh City Life fan page on Facebook, and you are automatically entered into the drawing! Two lucky fans will win a $75 shopping spree and we'll announce the winners at our Grey Gardens Etsy Crafting Party on June 10.
The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
