For the past two months I have been working on a special little project. I had access to a huge space in town for just a few months and decided that it would be a perfect pop-up shop location just in time for the holidays. My partner and I, brought in goods as well as a curated group of 9+ local designers and collectors. The plan was to have a few open house events that included music, refreshments, ice cream from Zsa’s Gourmet Ice Cream truck and anything else that we thought might be fun and different. Our first open house was a few weeks ago and was a huge success. The events are so fun — if I could, I would have one every week! This Sunday we will be having another party which will include John Scioli, owner and proprietor of John’s Old School New Skool Barber Shop! Yep- you will be able to shop and get a haircut and a shave. Not to mention eat ice cream, listen to music and eat hot waffles.
The shop itself, is full of fun things and the inventory changes constantly! The rotation of items can be exhausting but it’s super fun recreating the space almost every other day. It’s been a crazy ride and I have definitely learned a lot. I love creating a space that inspires and makes people happy, meeting so many new folks, and being inspired by the amazing designers that are part of the shop! Not to mention building a brand that will hopefully continue to grow. Take a look and if you are in Chestnut Hill stop by and see me. To learn more check out the Nomad site, facebook page and twitter. We will at this location until February 12th. Stay tuned!
