Share the Style! Roots, Design, Americana.


The Urban Prairie wildfire is spreading. Would you like to help light more fires? The DIRT ROAD TEAM is a grassroots, guerilla marketing effort aimed at spreading the Urban Prairie vibe. Simply post a comment here or email dirtroadteam@urbanprairie.net and tell us how you would like to help. If you qualify, you’ll receive a FREE Urban Prairie tee and a special monthly “Dirt Road Team” newsletter.

PRINTED MATERIALS:
Urban Prairie posters, postcards & stickers are available. Do you own a shop? You could hang a poster, place postcards on the counter and hand out a sticker with each purchase. Would you like to carry “signed” copies of CRACK HEADS, the soon to be released book featuring Chris’s doll head collection?

GUEST BLOGGER:
Chris will soon be appearing as a “guest” on several designing blogs. Have him appear on yours, answering decorating/design/collecting questions. Or, let him come up with his own post talking about his collections, odd take on decorating – all with photos, some exclusively to your blog.

SWAG:
New Urban Prairie “Alt Country Style+Design” tees will be available soon. Would you like to offer these to your clientele or friends? Be the first to wear one.

MEDIA CONTACTS:
Do you have a friend/contact at a magazine/newspaper/design zine that you think would like to learn about the Urban Prairie vibe or Chris?

Join Today! Spread the Urban Prairie vibe. We appreciate your support in helping this little “cult style” thing called Urban Prairie grow like a wildfire out of control.

I would love to spread the word. I have a space in a funky antique/design/junk (hard to describe) mall where I think Crack heads would sell really well.

Chris: I would love to hang your poster in my new space. I'm moving into a shop in Smithville Tx-Main St. Village. I can also take post cards to hand out at my shows. Let me know if I can help!! I'd also love to feature you on my blog--

Hi Chris, I just wanted to let you know that your little crack head should be arriving this week ~ I shipped him Fri. but had to send parcel post as priority was going to be 20.00 because of the big box!! Please let me know when you get him and I'd love to have some postcards for our shop, too! Dawn

I've posted a link to your site (love it!) on my blog. Your philosophy on found objects fits well with my own, since most of my creations start with discarded cast-offs.

I'll be selling my wares at a few alternative craft shows this year and would love to hand out postcards for your site.

I'd love to catch the wave. I am about to start a new Katy Prairie Jewlery Line. I don't have a store, but I am a core artist at The DaVinci's Artist Gallery in Tomball. Perhaps you'd like to come to one of our First Friday Events in the sprawling metropolis of Tomball Texas! We have the art, but can't seem to get the needed traffic. If you make a guest appearance at this cool little gallery, you'd probably attract a few groupies ~ I believe! Especially since Tomball is so close to Houston, I think we should talk!
BTW....love your blog! Have your link on mine!
