We are bracing ourselves for Hurricane Joaquin now, and hoping for the best. They can't all be like last weekend - it was a beautiful one! Just the right weather for fall soccer and flag football and soaking in the sun but not baking in it.
Last Saturday, I met up with my college roommate and now, close neighbor. She's soon launching a company in the kids space (exciting!) so we took a stroll over to 501 Union, a Brooklyn-cool event space, to check out the City Kid Pop Up that the team from June & January organized. So many of the brands and products we love on Instagram were there including Freshly Picked, June & January, Polarn O Pyret, Snuggly Ugly, Goose Grease, Lovelane, and so many more.
June & January hosted the event and we hope there will be many more to come!
Darlings of Instagram, Freshly Picked, brought their popular leather mocs to Brooklyn and parents came from all over the tri-state area to stock up multiple sizes at sample sale prices.
These silk screened and handmde super hero caps and capes from Lovelane are adorable and a great addition to your dress-up box!
While what we do isn't in the handmade maker space, we get so much inspiration from these artists and have so many ideas for collaborations! Keep watching us for new products in the future!
As a small business owner, it's hard not to have your energy and confidence lag sometimes. So it was a real treat to bump into a very happy SureShop user on the way out of the event - carry on!
