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 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.
You can find us at SoWa Open Market soon! If you would like us to roll up to your event, shoot me an email!

Styling for Womag
The Worcester Magazine issue about shopping thrifty in Worcester that Linnea (our online shop guru) and I styled came out this week. You can also read it online here.
Summer of Sowa
I was reminiscing about my first market I ever did with my vintage collection the other day. It was in Boston at the Sowa Open Market event called Baked Fresh. I was so nervous and I stressed over the event for months. Now we are on our 4th year of selling at Sowa, planning events and vending markets is like walking and talking for me, I don’t even think about it. What a difference four years makes (wink wink).
Featured in BUST
I cant believe I havent posted this yet, but the Haberdash was mentioned in Bust Magazine last month. It was in a story about the “Mobile Boutique Trend”. Which is a little silly to me because when I was building Haberdash 3 years ago, I had to create the term mobile boutique because there was no such term.
StART on Main
This weekend was the season opener for the mobile shop. We spent the day with what seemed like all of Worcester, hanging out at StArt on the Street. We danced in the street and ate from every food truck that was there. If you live in central Mass and missed this event, there is another one in September. Hope to see your there!
Follow us on Twitter to see all our events for the season.
New Online Shop
I was worried with all the Swap traveling I have going on this summer, I would be neglecting The Haberdash. I’ve decided to enlist the help of another pack rat, vintage lover, and old stuff expert to run the online shop. Welcome Linnea to the Haberdash Team! You can count on her to bring affordable, on trend vintage straight to your desktops!
