New Find

I recently discovered the neatest store here in Champaign. It's called the I.D.E.A. Store and describes itself as:
"A place where artists, educators, recyclers, and friends can find re-use materials for the projects that fill our lives."
It's a non-profit that benefits the local school district. The woman who taught both of the Typography courses I took told me about it several weeks ago so I had always wanted to check it out. On a gloomy, rainy, snowy day this weekend, I stopped by. I really enjoyed it! It's all about creativity and art. I'll be volunteering there after Christmas and I'm really looking forward to helping, playing and meeting some new, interesting people. Can't wait to start! If you're interested, go to the link to the brochure on their website.
