Tender Loving Empire is ten years old this year! In that time there's been a lot of learning and a lot of growth, but the best part is that we're still doing exactly what we originally set out to do—providing a place for artists and craftspeople and musicians to be seen and heard and connect with new fans and friends.
Emily Small is Beetle Ink Co., a hand-drawn paper goods and design shop based in Portland, OR. Her designs have an energy and life of their own that comes from Emily's background in animation, film, and crayon doodling. When she's not working hard on her designs, you can find Emily behind the counter at our Hawthorne store. Drop in and tell her hi! Take a look at our online collection of her work here.
