news worthy

Congratulations to Yes Please More, to all the designers and artists, and especially to Samuel Schimek and Brian Corrigan (Yes Please More's founders and daily hard-workers)!  Denver, this store is your chance to see and support your own contemporary designers and artists.  Not only do WE think so, the city does too - Yes Please More won one of ten Mayor John Hickenlooper's 2010 Design Awards!  

I hope you will visit the store in it's current location on the 16th St. Mall in the Denver Pavilion's shopping mall.  The store is located on the 2nd floor of the North end.  Because this store is a Pop-Up store, it's location will change every 3-5 months.  This location will be in place through January.  Keep in touch with Yes Please More via their website: and blog

"YesPleaseMore means we want to see more creativity, more energy and really enliven the creative economy here in Colorado," co-founder Samuel Schimek said.  Who doesn't want to be a part of this?  

Furthermore, there's a grant program for creative entrepreneurs:
I won one...  it's a great way to get some good exposure and of course, if your proposal is picked, a good jump start for one's design work!
