I am beyond thrilled to be one of Etsy’s Open Call Finalists! This weekend we will head to New York for a few fun filled days of hanging out at Etsy’s beautiful headquarters in Brooklyn and to pitch our line to a handful of retailers. The companies involved in this years open call are Macy’s, Paper Source, Wholefoods, Giggles, and Cooper Hewitt! How exciting! I really can’t believe it and am so honored I was picked for such an amazing opportunity. You can read a little more about it and see the other 35 finalists on Etsy’s blog here
We will have a little free time to explore the city this weekend and plan to pop in to the NY NOW shop going on at the Javitz. We hope to show at NY NOW next year (in addition to NSS) so I’m really looking forward to checking it out. We’ve never stayed in Brooklyn before (we’ll be in Dumbo) any recommendations on this super cute area would be appreciated. I will be posting some BTS on instagram so be sure to follow along while we’re away @shannonkirsten
Wish us luck and have a wonderful weekend!
(Little packages and mailers I made for the buyers goody bags!)
