To celebrate the launch of its “Poketo for Target” accessories collection, the artsy collective will be throwing an ice cream meetup at the Target West Hollywood store on August 14 from 1 to 3:30pm where you can also chat with Poketo co-founder Ted Vadakan. The first 100 folks to show up will get a free scoop of tasty Lake Street Creamery Truck ice cream! After that they’ll sell the ice cream, including Poketo-inspired flavor, white chocolate cherry.
Afterward, shop browse the cutesy limited-edition collection in the store. I love that Tar-jay makes affordable versions of designer brands but OMG when it’s Poketo. Colorful, adorable water bottles, wallets, iPod cases and more by artists like Betsy Walton, Maki and Silvia Portella. Click here for the complete list of artists.
UPDATE: Because of Target’s recent support of anti-gay politicians and groups, I can’t support them, as much as I used to love them. So, yes, to the free ice cream and supporting Poketo, but not so much to actually patronizing the store. Boo.
