Last week we were a part of the 5th annual Chicago Sidewalk Sale at Daley Plaza. This event featured 39 Chicago designers and their products, ranging from handmade jewelry and hats to fun summer frocks. Some of our favorites are Jules, Kate Boggiano, Forme Milinery, Squasht by Les and many many more!
The event started early on Tuesday, or should I say extra early for Brynn and Elizabeth who had to arrive for a 6am set up because they were being featured on WGN Around Town with Ana! We were so excited to be one of seven chosen for this opportunity. Here’s some of the footage from that morning…thanks to Ana at WGN for highlighting our “In the Navy” Lauren Crossbody bag with a great Michelle Tan outfit (model #4).
The event went very well, with lots of foot traffic to keep us very busy. Although it was a scorcher, we took turns dipping our feet in the fountain to cool off or getting Starbucks to refresh…the passion tea lemonade…yum!
As the design intern, I enjoyed talking to the shoppers about Brynn’s product, highlighting the unique and beautiful attributes in each bag. So much detail goes into the handbag, (and as the design intern I get to have hands on with all of it), I can’t help but share my excitement!
