Heartmade Market

Heartmade Market

Heartmade Art Market was conceived and created by Tracy Manford Carlson of Tracy Carlson Photography and Sonja Fulbright of Crush Design Co. Our tag line, “design for happiness,” is exactly how we like to do things. ‪We think small actions add up to big results, so we’re putting the hearts of Houston’s talented artists to work for the benefit of local non-profit organizations, like Hoof Prints and Heart Beats (HPHB), and the community at large.‬

Heartmade artists are among the best ambassadors of the Houston art community, and we always want to make sure they are able to find success. We designed this market to ensure that both the artists and the charity would come out on top. Booth fees go directly to the charity, leaving the artists free to make their sales knowing the “heartwork” is already taken care of.

HPHB was created to provide free rehabilitation and therapeutic riding for physically challenged individuals and people who suffer from social disorders such as autism, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, and eating disorders, as well as Equine Enhanced Counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder, trauma, and addiction recovery.

Connecting Our Local and Global Neighbors: Vox Story Tellers

Join Vox Culture over coffee/tea and sweets @ A 2nd Cup Coffee House as we host the second event of our 2016 series on Refugees, "Connecting our Local & Global Neighbors".

Our February event, titled, "Vox Story Tellers" will feature several clients from our 2016 community partners: The Community Cloth, IEDA Relief, and PAIR Houston. Rather than putting energy in solely discussing the past that some of these individuals have gone through, the event will be dedicated towards these individuals sharing their vision of THEIR FUTURE!

PLEASE RSVP FOR THIS EVENT BY CLAIMING YOUR FREE TICKET!!! 

The goal of this event is to find ways to support these individuals in their goals/dreams, and listen to some of the challenges and/or positives that they have had in achieving or attaining their ambitions. A Q&A may follow. More details to be announced soon!!

Please note that the purchase of any drink or food item at A 2nd Cup goes towards benefiting the work of anti-human trafficking organizations across Houston.... so if you attend, you are practically supporting two causes in 1 event!!!

This event will take place on Saturday, February 27 from 1:30PM-3:00PM @ A 2nd Cup (1111 E 11th Street, Houston, TX 77009).

Boheme’s refurbished historical building is nestled in the quaint and lively Montrose area and is surrounded by a 6,000-square-foot garden adorned with Shona stone sculptures from Zimbabwe. Inside, authentic steel-frame windows, original brick walls, cozy couches, and antique light fixtures from Germany, France and England grace the space with a subtle old world vibe.  Boheme is a place where every Houstonian can feel worlds away or right at home.
