On Oct. 25 we brought relevance outside our usual stomping ground. Mere steps outside the MU Student Center, the Arts and Sciences Mall was the site of The Bridge’s outdoor market— a lively afternoon full of students gathering to hear live music, munch on some food and, of course, survey all of the amazing merchandise we proudly support.
Several of our partners had tables set up surrounding the musicians, including our mega-talented jewelry makers. Jenny Brandt, creator of Jen’s Jewels, showcased some of her simple, trendy necklaces and bracelets, while Bea Doheny, mastermind behind Astronobeads, presented her unique solar-system-inspired chokers, bracelets and necklaces. Strung by Stroh also made an appearance with their one-of-a-kind jewelry line.
The vibe was set by musicians Devin Cline, Charlie Jensen, Matt Mohler and Michael Moedritzer. There wasn’t a listener around who didn’t enjoy the chill tunes they put out, which featured songs from The Lumineers and Mumford and Sons.
