Why I Joined the Mob

The ‘Cuse Mob throng at Craft Chemistry
Andrew Greacen rocked it

I’ve never participated in a flash mob or a cash mob before but when Syracuse First put the call out over the twittersphere for a ‘Cuse Mob The Husband and I agreed come Saturday that’s exactly where we’d be. The goal of this exercise was to convene with random people at a locally owned, independent business, spend a few dollars to support the local economy, and discover a cool shop we probably never knew existed. How fun it was to join the Syracusan mob at Briana Kohlbrenner’s Craft Chemistry shop on 745 North Salina Street. The problem wasn’t finding something to buy, but choosing which of her super cool merchandise we were going to bring home. We caught up with some old friends and met a few new ones. And that long line at the checkout? It was a breeze thanks to Andrew Greacen’s soulful funk for entertainment.
Our new “Salt City” print
The obsession continues
We think our new “Salt City” print by local artist Jason Evans looks pretty awesome hanging in our kitchen, don’t you? After checking out his very cool website, [re]thinkSyracuse, we love it even more!
Anyone who follows my blog will not be surprised by my “Good Ideas” notebook purchase. I came clean on that little obsession here.


So how about it, Syracuse First: will the ‘Cuse Mob become a once-a-month tradition? Count us in.
