Tanglewood Works pops up in Arts District for the holidays

Hyattsville Life & Times – 11/10/16 by Brianna Rhodes

ustin Fair, the Economic Development Coordinator for Hyattsville Community Development Corp, said he believes that the Tanglewood Works pop-up shop has a lot to offer to the Arts District and the city of Hyattsville.

“She [Sue] has been active in the Arts District, engaging in helping people’s homes and providing a stable business resource for the community and driving a real stable example of delivering artisan works to residents and to area stakeholders in a way that because she works in retail is a very welcome creative force for the city,” Fair said.

“She is choosing to locate on that corridor in a space that is heavily trafficked across from Franklin’s to the post office to Pyramid Atlantic. She’s recognizing the opportunity for an eye-catching appeal. It’s a very notable corner and I think that you can’t just have anyone there, Fair said. “It requires something innovative and I think that it’s great that she is doing this for the holiday season.”

Essie started her eponymous brand in 1981 with $10,000 after working in the hosiery business. When Essie launched, there were very few companies making nail polish, and nail salons were rare. Essie nail polish is now available in roughly 25,000 salons in more than 100 countries. The company was bought by L’Oreal in 2010.

Essie speaks with Jessica about how she launched Essie, from scratch.

Meryl Streep on “Fresh Air”

Episode

"Streep works hard to sing badly in her new film, ‘Florence Foster Jenkins.’ In it, she plays the title role, a character based on an actual heiress and socialite who devoted her life to music — despite having a squeaky, screechy singing voice. Streep also discusses working with Stephen Sondheim for the screen adaptation of ‘Into the Woods,’ and why sometimes just being Meryl Streep is more nerve-racking than performing."

More Perfect: Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl

Episode

This is the story of a three-year-old girl and the highest court in the land. The Supreme Court case Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girlwas a legal battle that entangled a biological father, a heart-broken couple, and the tragic history of Native American children taken from their families.

When producer Tim Howard first read about this case, it struck him as a sad, but seemingly straightforward custody dispute. But as he started talking to lawyers, historians, and the families involved in the case, it became clear that it was much more than that. Because Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girlchallenges parts of the 1978 Indian Child Welfare Act, this case puts one little girl at the center of a storm of legal intricacies, Native American tribal culture, and heart-wrenching personal stakes.
