We were itching to roll up our sleeves and make things with our hands. Thus, the birth of Alessandra Salamandra.
This summer, Raul and I learned to use all kinds of power tools (still terrifying), sew zippers, take apart/put together our teardrop trailer pop-up shop, and prepare a silkscreen. We made 72854 trips to Lowe's. Raul made benches and stools from scratch-- without nails!-- and I screen printed a bunch of cards. We celebrated the launch of our shop in September with painted magnets, mirrors, wood cut-outs, and earrings.
Visit us virtually, on Etsy, or in-person at Asbury Fresh on December 23rd.
