The Tom Tom Founders Festival is under way in Charlottesville. Events have been unfolding all week from a song writer competition to an innovator award ceremony,  farm to table restaurant week to a variety of local music events,  a founders summit, pop up art exhibits, workshops, poetry readings, and a few block parties. This is just the tip of the iceberg! Do check out the impressive schedule here!

Cardboard Safari is a supporting sponsor and will have a table at the Lee Park Block Party tonight where we will be selling our products, discounted overstock, a great selection of seconds, and our brand new Tom Tom Bison. Stop by our table to meet our cool crew and pick up some awesome, sustainable, locally made, recycled cardboard home decor. You’ll also have a chance to hear a showcase of local bands, drink delicious beer, and choose from a multitude of food vendors. The block party is great fun for the whole family and has become a Charlottesville tradition.

Founded in 2012, Tom Tom is a non profit that holds almost 100 free events in Charlottesville each year. As described on their about page, “The converging disciplines of music, art, design, business, science and technology connect people and new ideas to the future.” The mission of Tom Tom is to “celebrate and empower founders, people who build creative, civic, and entrepreneurial projects.”

What is Remembered, Lives

It may seem a long time away, but it’s not too early to start your preparations for Dia de los Muertos.

Also known as Day of the Dead, the festivities begin on November 1 and end on November 2.

Dia de los Muertos is an opportunity to honor loved ones who have passed.

There are many traditional rituals surrounding the occasion, including building an altar, having a feast, and bringing gifts to the graves of the departed.

skull_LE_B_002

Cardboard Safari offers some beautiful designs for this very occasion.

Our products require assembly, providing a great opportunity to focus your thoughts on the beloved dead in your life while creating something with your hands.

The whole family can gather around the wreath, taking turns slotting it together, while vocalizing memories of  loved ones who have passed.

If you prefer, spend some quite time alone, piecing together a skull while visualizing your dear deceased.

Our skulls come in Micro sizes in brown, white, black, and striped, as pictured above.

They also come in a large size, in brown and white only.

Or choose our special edition skull, that comes in its own box.

Create. Conserve. Be Clever.

And remember those who have passed!

Your ancestors will appreciate it.

New Sets of Four

Take a stroll across the African Savannah or the North American Plains and witness four stunning animals from each habitat.

The Safari Set includes Juliette Giraffe, Robbie Rhino, Eyan Elephant, and Leon Lion.

The North American Set includes Billy Bison, Rocky Ram, Bucky Deer, and Fred Moose.

NorthAmericanSet_Medium_White

Both sets are available in Brown or White, Junior or Micro sizes, and are offered at a 10% discount on our website.

When a single animal bust leaves you wanting more, opt for the sets of four!

Hang them on your wall and listen closely. They have a great deal to discuss, from poaching concerns to habitat preservation.

They will remind you to Create, Conserve, and Be Clever!

Look for the Rhino!
