Pop Up Shop

For those that have asked… we have made the tough decision to no longer organize our Pop Up Shops. After 7 years of doing them, we knew we needed to focus on our brick and mortar location, and our growing online business (click here to shop!). If you are interested in starting a business and want to do a pop-up shop, you might be interested in looking something like stitch labs for helpful advice on getting a pop-up shop up and running.

We are so thankful for the years of awesome participants – both merchants and shoppers. You are a big part of the reason why we were able to move forward with our shop, and we will be forever grateful.
