Our appreciation to the Poor family for giving us the opportunity to attend Spacefest IX. It’s wonderful to see so much artistic talent and to learn about the history and future of space exploration. Thank you to the Spacefest organizers for a wonderful event!
Sole was honored to be invited to give a speech at the Spacefest IX banquet dinner. She was prepared and ready.
As the saying goes, “It takes team work to make dreams work.” We are grateful to the Space Hipster community for helping us reach our goals. Our gratitude to the Pascua Yaqui community. Thank you all for your support!

Would you or some special girl in your life like to own aspiring astronaut Luciana Vega, the American Girl 2018 “Doll of the Year” and all of her gear pictured here?
Space Hipsters is raffling Luciana and her collection, retail value $300, in cooperation with Taking Up Space. Tickets are $10 each for the first ticket and $5 for each additional ticket bought at the same time. So, for instance, $20 will get you three chances to win.
The drawing will be held on March 6th and broadcast from Tucson at the La Cocina Fundrasier as a “Facebook live” event.
Buy a ticket (or lots of tickets), by logging onto PayPal: https://www.paypal.com/myaccount/transfer/buy and ‘pay for goods’ using this email: HistorianMom@gmail.com.
Be sure and tell us in the ‘Add a note’ section of your purchase who the ticket(s) is for if it’s not the same as the name of the PayPal account owner (you might, for instance, want to buy tickets for three granddaughters & put each of their names on a ticket). Within 36 hours of your purchase you will receive an email with your ticket number on it. Hold on to that e-mail!
Good luck, everyone! Tickets on sale now until March 4th.
Space Hipsters has purchased this collection out of profits from Patch sales. Half of the first $600 collected will go to reimburse the account. So, for instance, if we only sell $200 worth of tickets, SH will get $100 and Taking Up Space will get $100. After $600, Taking Up Space will get 100% percent of monies collected. Space Hipsters will pay worldwide shipping and insurance costs to get Luciana to the winner. Any customs fees will be the responsibility of the winner.
