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:
A new shop!
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!
StArt on the Street Recap
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!

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!
