So the weather in New York is really off this year. We used to rock the LLP event in May but found it too windy and rainy so we figured June would be sunny, hot, and, dry but NO! The rain came thru on Saturday and washed us out. Every single tent that weekend was booked. Luckily our friend Randy had some backups and we did the best we could to hold it down outdoors but when the rain came down hard we moved inside and closed up shop:( It happens. We were like fuck it, mother nature calls the shots. We gathered in the hallway and inside of the shop. We gobbled up all the ceviche and drank all the sangria! A few of our friends dropped by, and to our surprise so did the Brooklyn Boro President secretary! Patty Dukes and I received an LLP Salutation certificate for the community work we are doing and are in talks about getting a big space for next year in BK. The highlight of our rainy day. Shout out to our friend Jose from Latino Life who sponsored us this year for making it happen. We want to give thanks to everyone that made an effort to pull through RAIN OR SHINE!
SATURDAY // DAY 1: Rain or Shine

Â SUNDAY // DAY 2: LLP Comeback!
Day two was better, the sun came out, and we made an excellent comeback. We invited our Day 1 vendors and a lot more people came thru. Faces I haven’t seen in years! It was really nice to catch up with folks one on one. Hommie Yvey was holding down the Toofly booth, Clara was holding down the LLP mini bar with special sangria $5 drinks that was selling out and making everyone tipsy, the BBQ chicken wings with mango sauce was going fast, sales were picking up, vendors were happy, Samantha was clicking away, Randy started his live silkscreening, Reph and Dj Enygma on the tunes were making us boogie, and a lovely summer in the Brooklyn outdoors Â the way we envisioned it came together. Big thank you to everyone who joined us, on Sunday and supported the LLP crew at Rebelution Ink. Our Ladies Love Project Pop-Up Shop is back!!! New and improved and ready for next year. Thank you BROOKLYN NYC!!!
THANK YOU LLP CREW 2015!

Back from New York and ready to get these blog updates started! It was a busy busy trip this year. The NYC grind was in full effect. Shout out to everyone that came through to support the LLP crew this spring. It was a rainy windy day to start, but by the afternoon when most folks roll thru, the sunshine blessed us with a beautiful day. Just in time for the performances, and all our big supporters. This year the LLP team invited a few new vendors to join the creative art and designer crew. Check them out, they do beautiful handmade works! We love LOCAL, HANDMADE, and ORIGINAL CREATIONS. These guys fit right in. Aurora Barnes and Rhyme Factory did their thing, and DJ Enigma had us dancing for a bit to close out event. It was FUN!!! Besides the morning showers the Ladies Love Project Spring Pop-Up Shop this year was a success once more <3 Love to the crew and everyone who participated to the very end.
