To get here, simply type “you are beautiful” into Apple or Google maps, and it’ll bring you right here. The address is 3368 N Elston, directly across the street from the wonderful @honeybutterchi 😋
I’ll keep posting other views of the space, but honestly it’s better to check out in person. 10-6 Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun this week. (& mark your calendars for the grand opening of the entire building Dec 8 😱)
We’re quietly opening our doors to the front shop this week! Swing by 10-6, and say 👋 & help us test things out before the grand opening.
Made in store gift cards. I am really enjoying tinkering with the details.
Made some reusable shopping bags for the shop ✨
In great company last night at the merchandise mart @sta_chicago
There is always room. @bberrymarket
Installing this glowing fella tomorrow.
My life for the last 6 months or so :)

Facade, check. Store opening very very soon!
A really great morning! When we moved into our new YAB HQ, we wanted to bring a piece to the neighborhood. Today, we donated our first English/Spanish installation to Grover Cleveland Elementary!
Many thanks to Alderman Deb Mell & State Representative Jaime Andrade for coming out & talking to the kids with us. Thanks to Debora Ward, Principal, Robert Staszczak, Asst. Principal, and most of all Bree Liscinsky & the Committed to Cleveland Group for making it happen!
As this project has grown, and the community around the message has supported us, we've been wanting to donate installations. This will be the first of our yearly installation, where proceeds from every sticker (shirt, wood cursive, etc) will go to funding an installation each year.
A common question we get is - what do you do with all the scrap? We try to use as much as the whale as possible. Needing some spacers for an upcoming installation, scraps from a recent large piece worked nicely.
Front desk is coming together.
A fun little mural in Oak Park at Harlem & North. @enjoyillinois
Thanks to everyone who came out and collaborated on a tile today @apple 🙌
Last night’s @chicagoideas lab was really fun. This is what YAB HQ was built for, sharing & making art for the community. This piece will be donated to Grover Cleveland Elementary.
