As I think about the direction of how Looks with Linds is going, I realized that showcasing local vendors and artists is where my heart lies. Of course, I do shop big-box, but finding one of a kind “omg where did you get that?” type pieces is what I live for. I think it’s mostly because I seek attention and anytime I have something on that people may not have seen before, and they ask about it, gets me excited.
I was able to participate in the chug and impulse buy sip and shop event held at the Smokehouse Tavern where local artists and vendors got to showcase their goodies all while raising money for the House of Hope. The opportunity to shop some of my favorite local vendors while drinking a Tito’s and Soda? I’m there. I was able to see old friends and meet some new ones! Check out the pictures and stories below!
Meet Melissa and Rebekah – the brains behind this event as well as bohemian beads & bangles and Rebekah Hope Design. They are absolute dolls who I was so happy to run into and get to know better. To be able to meet women who are about building not only their brand, but the brands of other local artists and vendors makes my heart happy. We need to remember that building a brand isn’t easy and you often can’t do it alone. Hats off to you both!
