The name Tender Loving Empire feels like a warm cup of soup on a cold rainy Seattle day (which today is not, thank you!) and learning about this awesome vendor was just as internally warming. What started as a record label, Tender Loving Empire has become an oasis for Indy craft art and music. They are one more beautiful reason to visit Portland. At 4 years old, TLE has a brick and mortar location that features their T-Shirt line, albums and the work of over 250 other independent artists and musicians. Wowee! Take a look at their Etsy store to get an idea of what you'll be seeing at UCU this summer.
We welcome you, TLE to your second time at Urban Craft Uprising!
What are you offering up to our readers as a Giveaway?
1 "Rainy Beardy City" Tee in Mens Medium. It's our Northwest tribute shirt. From one rainy city to another. If you win this shirt and would like to exchange it at our table while supplies last, please feel free to stop by and we'll get you the correct size!
The Tshirts and Music we sell at Craft Fairs is only a fraction of what Tender Loving Empire does. TLE is a Record Label, Brick and Mortar Consignment shop in Portland, Screenprinting Shop, and Tshirt Line. All purchases made at our table indirectly help support the hundreds of other independent artists we work with throughout the year.
Is there something you are hoping to shop for, a treasure you'd like to find at this year's Summer UCU? We're always looking for new treasures for our store...the main goal is to make more than we spend...
Good luck guys!
