It was one of those weekends you wish you could bottle up and save for a rainy day (or maybe snowy day would be more appropriate after this winter!) The weather was beautiful, we had the perfect balance of time with friends and time outside relaxing with the pup, and there were pop-up shops to be shopped.
I was thrilled to see Sid and Ann Mashburn on the Thread pop-up shops line up because although I’ve been a longtime admirer, I haven’t yet had a chance to visit their Atlanta or Houston brick & mortars. As much as I love online shopping (and they have a fantastic website), it will never replace the experience of being in a well merchandised boutique of a brand you love.
I practiced Herculean self restraint and only allowed myself to come home with a few strands of the beads above and two of my much coveted pens, but left inspired not only by the merchandise, but by what the Mashburn team was able to create in a tiny space. I’d be the first to sign a petition for a DC location–who’s with me?
