Last weekend we brought the Haberdash Bus out for the grand opening party of Crompton Collective. This weekend we ventured out to Worcester’s Start on the Street’s 10th anniversary. If you missed us, you can catch the new bus at SoWa October 14th and October 28th!
Haberdash was also featured in The Improper Bostonian and The Boston Globe last week!
The soft opening of my new antique and artisan mall was yesterday! I’m not 100% finished, but I love it so far! Our grand opening party is next saturday! Which is also the same day as the Canal Fest. I heard rumors of petting zoos outside our back door. I dont know how I will get any work done with fuzzy little animals around! Anyway, here are the latest photos from the shop:
Things are moving right along with the new shop. Our antique vendor spots are almost full and I have some pretty amazing local artists lined up to sell their wares. We also had a really great write up in Worcester Magazine this week about the whirl wind that was Haberdash Bus and Shop! You can read it online here.
The Haberdash family is growing! I’ve been working on our second mobile shop and it’s about 95% complete, so I thought I’d share!
When I found out our retail shop, Crompton Collective, wouldn’t be ready to open until September, I knew I needed a summer project! On a whim and a 9 hour drive later I picked up this adorable bus and added her to the Haberdash Family (with a lot of help from Mr. Towner and his firemen buddies)! Her nickname is B.B. because she is the little bohemian sister of The Haberdash. I curated this shop to be a little bit hippie and a little bit rock and roll, inspired by my mom and late stepdad.
Last Thursday Haberdash set up shop in Cambridge’s Technology Square for their concert on the common series. I was stoked about this event because our friends own Area Four and I was excited to spend a perfect summer night in Cambridge surrounded by friends! Seriously, if this is work, I’m a very lucky lady!
Finally! After years of searching for the most perfect store front we landed back where our search started in Worcester’s Canal District. Come September we will be able call the historic Crompton and Knowles building home! I hope you will follow along with us on our new venture!
We are also looking for some very talented artist’s and crafters that would like to sell their wares in our shop! So please pass this info along!
Don’t fret, the mobile shop will still be in full swing at your private parties, SoWa and StArt on the Street!
Yesterday was so special to me. It was so cool to see so many creative people at my favorite festival held at my favorite part of my city! If you are fan of my clothing swap business The Swapaholics you probably have heard me gush about the Canal District once or twice before! We host all our local swaps in a beautiful industrial building down there! Anyway…
Thank you, Worcester for visting, shopping, and keeping me company at Start on the Street! See you in September!
