Spearheaded by Fab-5, FABITAT is a place where young people come to learn and develop themselves creatively. It’s packed with art supplies, music equipment, dance space and instructors who are ready to help artists at every experience level. Most importantly, at FABITAT young people connect with peers who are also working to get better at what they love. Student/Community hours Tue-Fri 4pm-10pm. Fab-5 launched FABITAT in January 2011, as a Spaceworks Creative Enterprise, and after a successful 6-month Spaceworks term, they negotiated a lease with the property owner and are still there today.

The Modern Cottage Co. / Alison Bryan
2225 N  30th  / themoderncottagecompany.blogspot.com
grand opening Spring 2012
Looking for a bit of unstudied, retro style for your home? Head over to the Modern Cottage at 2225 N  30th Tacoma, WA. – owner and decorating whiz, Alison Bryan, has the artist’s touch when it comes to refreshing old-school pieces so they look just right for today. She can even give some of your old favorites new life! Alison’s showroom is full of great finds at a fraction of the price of conventional furniture.  At the end of her successful 6-month Spaceworks term (January 16 – July 15, 2012) at 311 S. 7th St., she was able to transition into a new space at 765 Broadway with a new name, “Poppy & Co.” and new partners. Poppy & Co. was a co-op of local furniture stylists – three women all with different styles. Poppy & Co. lived downtown for nearly two years until Alison decided to go it alone in a new location in Old Town featuring furniture, gifts, vintage home décor and more!
