We're still raising funds for Amanda's family. Through donations at Monster, and online we've raised $1,000. It's still not enough for them to open the new shop, but every bit helps. Please share this with your friends on Facebook, the more we get the word out, the better chance we have of meeting our goal.

Amanda is having a garage sale today, and Monday July 2nd. If the weather is nice, we'll also do it this Sun, July 1st. It's at her old house in Everett. Her her new place is much smaller, so there's a lot of things she needs to get rid of. Several people, including myself have also donated clothing and other items in great condition to be sold at the garage sale. There is a huge selection of womens clothing! Plus, clothing and toys her kids have out-grown including: girl clothes size 2T-4T, boy clothes size 12mo-5T, play & learn toys, legos, a kids desk, giant bear, and vhs & dvds.
There's also a lot of "man stuff " including music equip, amps, and tools. So come support my sister's family by getting awesome deals on things for yourself. It's a win, win!
Address: 1219 41st St, Everett, WA 98201

(Everett, WA – June 9, 2012) My sister Amanda and I were working at my store, Monster Art and Clothing, when her house was broken into. She had everything all packed up to move from Everett to Ballard the next morning. Her door was kicked in, her house was ransacked, and valuable items were stolen including: a laptop with all their family photos, electronics, 2 digital cameras, 2 guitars, a base guitar, video games, CDs, DVDs, my sister’s engagement ring, medications, a 357 revolver, and even their spare change jar. But it gets worse…

 

Amanda’s partner Sasha is a well known tattoo artist in Seattle, with a shop called Dark Horse Tattoo. They have been saving up for the last 5 years to buy a new tattoo shop, with a hair salon in Ballard. My sister is getting ready to go to beauty school, and this was their dream. They were moving to Ballard to provide a better life for their 2 children, in a more kid friendly neighborhood with less crime. They were very close to their goal, and hoped to have enough money to open the shop within the next year. Tragically, their safe with $16,000 was also stolen in the robbery.

 

Friends and family helped my sister move, but she’s starting over feeling very discouraged. Sasha is currently tattooing in New York, and it’s been a difficult time for them to be apart. Last week, the robbers came back, this time breaking into their garage, stealing more items we hadn’t moved yet, and throwing the rest into the street. It makes me really glad we got my sister and the kids moved to a safe place! We hope the police catch this guy soon, so he will stop terrorizing our family. The man who we believe did this, is a suspect in several other Everett robberies, and he’s been very elusive. I have faith that we can raise enough money for their dream of a new tattoo parlor to still become a reality, but we need help from our community.

As the owner of Monster Art and Clothing in Ballard, I'm giving away gift cards to thank people for their donations. Amanda works at Monster every Saturday, let's show her that we care! If you're in the neighborhood, stop by and donate in person. We're open 7 days a week. Amanda, Sasha, their 2 kids, and the Monster family sincerely thank you.
