Off to Plush You!

Meet "Pike Place Pete" MacDougall and Mr. Tully Buckstar, both of whom will be showing at this year's Plush You! show. The show opens at Schmancy Toys in Seattle this friday at 5pm. If you want to know more about the show, head on over to the amazing Kristen's plush show blog.

"Pike Place Pete" works at Seattle's famous Fish Market, home of the flying fish. His buddy Tully loves to grab his morning coffee and drink it with Pete at the market, before heading on his way to work. Tully is obsessed with coffee, and considers the day wasted if he hasn't had at least 6 cups. He's happy to live in a city like Seattle that has so many great coffee shops. To see more pics of Tully and Pete, head on over to my flickr page.

I am lucky enough to be able to attend the show this year, and I am really looking forward to seeing and meeting tons of fantastic plush artists in person. This coming weekend is like a plush nirvana- there will be plush of all sorts in 5 different shops in Seattle on both friday and saturday nights, so if you are in the area, please come and check it out!! I can't NOT shop for new plush for my collection- so I hope I don't totally blow my budget, this is going to be dangerously fun. ;)
Enjoy your week everybody.
