Holiday Pop-up Shop Recap

Ampersand Design Studio

So many thanks are in order for what we feel was a wildly successful Pop-up on Thursday!! A giant shout-out to all the amazing KC shops that participated and wowed shoppers with their lovely products:  Happy Habitat,  Jaime Rovenstine,  Janesko,  Prairie GoodsAmpersand Design StudioNickel & Suede Convivial ProductionOcean and SeaMaddy Nash,  Alicia Janesko and  Survival Letterpress. There was just SO MUCH TALENT packed into our studio. We didn't want the temporary shop to be taken down!

Thanks a million to everyone who came out and shopped, chatted, had a few drinks and photo-boothed it up! It was so nice to see so many faces—old friends and new! What a great night all the way around and we have photographic proof of the good times. We had the best time looking through all of the pics from One Sparrow Creative!

Our minds are already racing about having another one in the spring! We can't wait to do it again!

We were excited to debut a few new products at the pop-up and will be getting those live on our Etsy shop any day now! What do you think about our new platters (below)? We also had some brand-spankin' new phone cases for sale!

We are SOOO excited to kick off the holiday season with a little Pop-up shop in our own studio! We got to thinking it would be fun to pull together a few of our favorite local Kansas City makers to have a little shopping event, and before we knew it, we had what we think is a pretty killer group assembled. There are home goods, fine art prints, jewelry, leather goods, T-shirts, women's wear, ceramics, accessories, and the list goes on and on! Plus, we will even have a fun Photo Booth by the talented One Sparrow Creative to capture some memories of the night! There will be some snacks and drinks to get you in the shopping mood, and what's better than getting some shopping done early before madness of the holidays truly begins! We hope you can join us! Here's a look at the fabulous vendors who will be there (scroll down for links to their websites):

West Elm Grand opening party

Ampersand Design Studio

Last night was the Grand Opening preview party for our brand new West Elm store on the Country Club Plaza so it was the perfect opportunity to go visit our products on the West Elm shelves!!! It was such a high to see our totes and new 8x10 ampersands sitting with the other local products in one of our all-time favorite stores!

Plus, the party itself was so fun and West Elm was PACKED with people checking out the new digs! Also, we already love West Elm for partnering with local makers, but love them even more for donating a portion of the night's profits to Bridging the Gap, an awesome local KC environmental non-profit. Judging by the crazy-long check-out lines all night, they were surely able to donate a lot of money to this great cause. There was also awesome music and a Smilebooth set up for fun pics!

 It was such a fun night of yummy food by Howard's Organic Fare and Vegetable Patch and cocktails from The Campground

It was so great to catch up with one of our favorite KC bloggers, Megan of Chasing Davies! How cute is she for wearing our tote to the opening?! Be sure to go check out her blog post to see how she styled the Crossroads bag in the most darling way!

Our products were in the best company on the local display! So many amazing makers. Cute products below from Convivial Production, Ruff House Art and Tad Carpenter Creative.

Thanks West Elm, for a great night and for including us as a part of West Elm Local!
