Come on down and DIY with us this Saturday! Make something special for your Valentine, and pick up the perfect outfit for your date. Whether you’re going out with the girls or a special someone, we’ll help you get ready! Each store will be hosting one of four different DIY events (pictured below). In addition some stores will be featuring live music, refreshments, food, or special raffles, so be sure to check out what will be going on at your closest Free People boutique.

Share the Love!

We’re also encouraging our attendees to live tweet the action and any pictures accompanied by the hashtag #FPHandMadeLove. For all of our friends in the fashion blogging world, tweet us links of your posts about the event accompanied with the #FPHandMadeLove hashtag. We’ll be compiling images and links to the posts we love and recapping them on the Bldg 25 blog the week after the event. Read below for our list of stores and the DIY’s they’ll be participating in.
