509 Event Recap!

What a week!

With all the happy chaos of making (and then exceeding!) our Kickstarter goal, introducing our perfect new logo, developing our website, seeing new (top secret!) designs come in as artists continue to work on their collections, and the unexpected everyday joys and struggles of starting a business…well, time has been moving in all sorts of strange and erratic ways.

For example: has it seriously been almost a week since our fundraiser at 509 Wines? Really?

As promised, here are pictures from the event…

…but first! The Hourglass t-shirts we’re offering for bonus Kickstarter rewards have been quite popular so far. In fact, we’ve received a large number of requests for men’s shirts. So yes! We’re now offering shirts for the guys as well. Get yours HERE.


And now, without further ado:


Hillary, Rachel, Jeanie, Maya, Kira and Lisa before the event.


The spread.


Our silent auction was a huge success…complete with a bidding war or two!

ImageNicolle, Jeanie and Hillary…all wearing their own Hourglass shoes, of course.


Full house!

509 really does have fantastic wine.

Nicolle and Kira…


…and a better view of our feet.


Jeanie, lighting up the room.


Almost the whole Hourglass Team! Rachel, Nicolle, Kira, Hillary, Lisa, Jeanie, Reina. Maya had to leave a bit early…and we missed you, Debbie and Kim!


Thanks again to Steve and 509 Wines, and everyone who came out and made the event a success!

…wow, is it seriously almost 1pm already?

At least there’s still time to pledge to our Kickstarter campaign! Here’s that link again: http://kck.st/J0iag1
