Playthings: Artist / Retail Match

2011 Playthings Map/Address Postcard


Playthings Auction Date  May 21, 2011

This is the online version of this year’s postcard that will be found in all participating retailers (and other Wicker Park/ Bucktown locations), as well as going home with each student.  On the postcard you will see all retailers and their addresses.  Below is a list which pairs retailers and artists.  I hope you enjoy these sunny days and take a walk to see first hand all the great Playthings!
