TOMS Venice Takes Custom Shoes & Sunnies To The Next Level
With its street performers and eccentric vendors, Venice is already a primo spot for people-watching, but this week, you can add artist-in-a-glass-box to the mix.
Yes, you read that right — L.A. artist Tyler Ramsey
has taken up residence in an oversized box in front of the TOMS
store. Why, you might ask? To create custom shoes and eyewear cases for you
! All visitors have to do is call in and place an order, then watch him
make your one-of-a-kind piece live.
The entire seven-day event will be streamed via Google+, making it the longest hangout in history. And, of course, it's all for a good cause, with proceeds from each pair of shoes or sunglasses going straight to children in need. Sure beats impersonal online shopping!When:
Now through Monday, July 29, orders taken from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.Where: TOMS
Venice, 1344 Abbot Kinney Boulevard (near Andalusia Avenue); 855-704-3889.
